The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a cooperative card game that puts 1-2 players (or up to four with an additional Core Set) in control of the most powerful characters and artifacts of Middle-earth. Players will select heroes, gather allies, acquire artifacts, and coordinate their efforts to face Middle-earth’s most dangerous fiends. The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Adventure Pack expansions to the core game.

 I played the old LOTR card game years ago, and now I can't wait to play this one.

I made the mistake of watching the whole video. Makes me crave even more for that game. The rules are awesome!

Very well made videos. I will be interested to see how the expansions add depth, strategy & variety to this game. A bit concerned it is based around a Top Trumps style combat system, but hopefully that is just one element of the gameplay.

Joe those videos are for basic rulesmechanics of the game not for how you will coop.If you read some cards you will see that events heroes etc can help youyour team mate.How you will use those abilities is in your hand.I dont realy know how good this game will be but you cant judge a game before you have tested.

Once again, I have to say well done to FFG for excellent videos.  I now have a pretty good idea how the game plays.  As a solo game,2 player co-op game, it looks awesome!  Good heavens, I'm beginning to pick up Americanisms!  However, it looks like I will try it first before playing, as I am still not convinced that ccgs are best for co-op games.  I still see no reason for having hidden hands with multi players.  You still have to plan who is best to take on what.  What is the point of not revealing a good card you had in hand?  It is too late to say "It would have been better to let me take that on as I have a good card in my hand to counter" after a player has done something, not knowing you had that card.  Still tempted for its obvious solo play, but still think ccgs are better for competative play.  Cheers!

I enjoyed watching the videos. As they did with the other LCG, I hope FFG make them available for download so we can watch in full screen on our preferred video player.

Very well done videos.

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be a game I am going to enjoy.  I was looking forward to it, but these videos make it sound like an extremely complex exercise in math.  Where's the fun?  How do the two players cooperate?  All I saw was a bunch of phases with numbers being compared all over the place.  :(
