  1. I’d like to post a link to your site from our site for our Retailers to review your PodCast. I feel it is very important for them to see what is being said about the products that they’re considering or that their players are buying.

  2. Not sure about your ‘Lord Of The Rings’ experiences… I’ve played the game at least 15-20 times and MOST of those games have come right down to the wire. Perhaps you weren’t working together enough? Perhaps you weren’t doing all that you could to avoid events? The idea of a group not even completing the first board seems suspicious.

    • No, we were just VERY unlucky. All the event chits were drawn right at the start of the game – before any of us had chance to much improve our hands or anything.
      I’ll certainly give it another try, as I’m never willing to give up on a game after only 1 play.
