I am very satisfied with this game, but I think the play is always concentrated on the same parts of the map. And other regions are useless. There are FP units but i never used them. I think that expansion should focus on this problem (or some regions should be erased from the map and others should be extend). I am fascinated with tolkiens world and this is nice that all regions are on the map but I think it is not good for the game.
I disagree; I had a game today that involved every Nation being activated, and i could only name 1 or 2 regions that weren't used at some point. Which regions do you think are useless in the game and which troops aren't you using?
Maybe you'r right. I played only few times so I thought that forces from Gray Havens, Bree and the Shire are rather useless. I was playing FP. Maybe because of that I wanted to win by destroing the Ring I didnt focused on that regions.
How long is it exactly? I heard someone on BGG say the dates been pushed back to March? I thought it could be true, as there is usually some build up in activity as we approach the release date for any game, and I havn't seen anything new on the FFG web site for some time...
