Be sure to return tomorrow for the final entry in The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game video tutorial!
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.
FYI, for what its worth, for better_or_worse, about 80% of all Warhammer Invasion (including FFGFan's Avatar) is created by FFG. While some is pulled from the GW archives, that is a smaller part.
Gerson is right about the art - Warhammer is using a big library of arts from many previusly published sources. And that's why LOTR LCG is better - those arts were made specialy for this game. Of course there are some from prevoius FFG games set in Middleearth like Middle-earth Quest. We can even see some heroes from it like EleonorThalin.
But in all I agre that those arts are looking sweet.
@Corwin: I believe the art for the LotR LCG is original, made specially for this game making the art more consistent. Warhammer Invasion art, on the other hand, was taken from the numerous Warhammer books published by Games Workshop throughout the years.
Yay! More narrative-based games! It'll be hard to stay true to Tolkien's prose style, but I hope they try. Some really outstanding writing would make a game's atmosphere so much better...
The art standard is just so high in this game; I've never seen anything like this. As much as I love the art of Warhammer: Invasion for example, some cards are really sub par.
If they can maintain what has been shown so far here, it will be amazing. Every card is like a mini painting.
Just awesome. I can't wait - this is much different than anything I have tried before,I can't wait.
Eleanor comes from another Fantasy Flight Game, Middle Earth Quest. Several other MEQ characters appear in the game as well
I am trying to figure out who Eleanor is. I looked the name up in the index of RotKdidn't find anything. The name is not familiar to me. I was kind of expecting that all the characters would come out of the novels. Anyone know where some of these characters come from?
This proves me that I did a good thing when I pre-ordered this game. Can't wait for the release. And the video i great - the best this far. We can not only see how the game works (if someone did not read the rules)we get a look at some amazing never shown before cards. Thanks FFG!
....now all together:
"We want it all, we want it all, we want it all, we want it NOW!!!"
This is a must have in my books.
Great part!! I cant wait to see the other
