I have played 4 "3 player games" as the FP. 2:2. But I find it very difficult to win as the FP if the Shadows are competent. If they leave for instance Saurman all musters at the beginning and Sauron all army dice (to move on Lorien and DEW). FP MUST alternate mustering between Gondor and Lorien instead of making Lorien impregnable. Then they can switch. The 4 player game I dont think I wanna even try as Gondor and Elves are the same nation, thus Rohan and others take Forever to get to war.
I dont feel like waisting 4 hours. Has anyone played a good 4 player game? If so, how can the FPs make it interesting?
