One of the first games I bought after getting back

...and we'd still play it, anytime. My poor cards are worn and frayed from all the play this one has seen.

It has a great hidden movement/fog of war-style mechanism that sometimes gets ignorantly dismissed as "Stratego". Number 1, Stratego is a great game, and 2, this one has only superficial similarities to Stratego. The card play and character powers make sure of that.

Yeah, it doesn't do its theme perfect justice in terms of movement, but the character powers all make sense and they do manage to cram enough of the LOTR theme into a tight-playing, 15 minute package.
