I am seeing on one of the distributors sites that I use to track upcoming releases a release date of April 15th. They are usually fairly accurate.

So I guess as some of us are not looking forward to mailing our taxes in that day we can balance it by looking forward to digging into this game for the first time.

 heck yes! I wish I knew the card distribution of the core set. I'm buying at least two, but it'd be nice to get a list.  Hopefully once the rules are up... :D

I started out really excited for this game, then sort of forgot about it....  Now reading up on all the news i missed and am really excited again!  Roll on April.

Really looking forward to trying out this game.  I just hope that the time waiting for it to come out is made up by an excellent game.

Here's the link from the German publisher's site:

www.heidelbaer.de/de/nc/einzelansicht-spiel/spiel/der_herr_der_ringe_kartenspiel/

It says April (, though not necessarily 15th).

According to the German forum, translation of the Core game is finished, the German rules pdf is ready to be uploaded (they're waiting for FFG to put the English version up first), Adventure Packs have either already been translated or are currently being translated, and last week the game was demonstrated using the (self-printed) product version of the Core set.

On other hand, I know that it will be avaliable in Europe on May 2011 - the news is from yesterday. I know it from my FLGS (Rebel.pl) and they got an official replay from FFG about the release date. So this must be true!

Besides it's finaly in pre-order so I just bought my a copy of the core set and the first Adventure Pack.

Of course, it will be available in May 2011 - unless it's already sold out after being released in April!

Here is the link to the GTS Distribution site where I saw it. They have it listed under their Boxed Games category instead of Card Games for the first release. I imagine they will change this once the chapter packs start coming out since Ctuthlu, Game of Thrones and Warhammer Invasion are all listed that way.

I am going all "Runebound" on this one...already told my game guy that I want every expansion until further notice.   This is the game I've been waiting for!

Exciting things about this game include:

1) It's LotR

2) it's constructable, but not "collectible" (i.e., it's a LCG!  yay!)

3) it's Fantasy Flight

4) it's COOPERATIVE

 

I am so excited about this game I can't stand it!  ha!

No1 its enough for me to play this game I just hope it will be a nice game cause my other option is lotr miniatures and its not popular in Greece.

Ofcourse lotr war in the north will come sometime in 2011 but a video game gets boring very fast and i dont even know if it will be a decent game.

We are still several weeks (4-6) away if it just got on the boat.

Yes, so I would still think that end of April or beggining of May 2011 is more  likely then 15th April. We must also count 7-10 day for the shipping.
