Collector's Edition

I also have purchased this game. It is big, beautiful, wonderful, jaw dropping... etc, etc.... but when are we going to get it on the table? I'm up for a 4 player game! Anybody interested?

I promised my wife that she and I would be the first to break our set in.

I would certainly be up for a four player game, but I must say that I have never done the four player option. When reading the rules I got the impression that the game was actually designed for tow, but the three and four player option was kind of forced in.

I assume that you have done three or four players before on WotR? Does it work ok?

I've only ever played WotR with 3 or 4 (mainly at conventions and once at my FLGS). Personally, I think it works really well, because in a lot of ways, that's more what the book is like. Gondor and Rohan worked together, but it was an uneasy alliance at best, and likewise, Saruman and the forces of Mordor weren't exactly perfectly coordinated in their actions.

There's a little confusion about which cards affect whom, but it's still a lot of fun, and I'd definitely recommend it.

If you have 4 experienced players then it works just fine. Play with a bunch of new guys, and its a day long game. It is meant for two players, however, 3 or 4 work almost as good.

I could meet at Dragon's lair for anybody who is interested in a game.

I won't be available to play anytime soon, but I do need to try the 4 player game sometime soon.
