Yeah I'm glad they changed it up a lot vs. Descent/Imperial Assault.

Looks great. And with the ability to update the app for new adventures, it seems to me like a great direction to take these kinds of games.

I’m not a fan of MoM’s “on the rails” approach, so I’m going to hold off on pre-ordering until I see some gameplay.

I've always hoped for Descent to make the jump to a Mansions of Madness 2.0 system. This is even better! Cannot wait!

The skill checks sounds interesting - I'm glad it's not dice. They sound a bit similar to 7th continent where you look for successes on your skill cards, and the more cards you draw, the more you could be hurting your later game.

The skill checks look very similar to a mechanism in Runebound Third Edition.

Have you tried any of their app supported games? It brings so much to the experience and I can’t imagine it without. Try it, you might like it!...

I'd love to pick up Journeys in Middle-Earth, but I doubt there'll be enough room to store it.

Nah, scratch that. If I have to take a sledgehammer to the wall to make room, it's happening. angry

This looks like Mansions of Madness but for LOTR. Which to me is a compliment.

Once you try out fantasy flight apps you will see they really add to experience, imperial assault app was awesome and gave a ton of theme. That’s what we want with lotr. Also they are recycling the art it seems from lotr lcg which is great news as that art is amazing!

Interesting game but that price tag seems a bit much for the contents shown and talked about. Seen KS games with vastly more content for that price or less. A full inventory of what comes in the box on video would be nice.

Unfortunately, FF games are designed with expansions in mind. Their recent Fallout game (which I enjoy) had an initial lukewarm reaction, but the recent New California expansion inproved the gameplay. No doubt LotR will follow the same path. Hopefully though the base game combined with the app, will garner good vibes from players.
