Never mind. I have to place the order today…wish I would have gotten SOME input.
well this forum isnt the busiest, and its been having some problems recently, but incase you still want some input here is the order of the expansions. you dont need to get any. you can play the game with just the core.
Shadows of mirkwood cycle: (you can buy any of these with just core set)
1.hunt for gollum
2.conflict at the carrock
3.journey to rhosgobel
6.return to mirkwood
Khazad dum deluxe pack (needed to play the follow cycle)
2.road to rivendell
3.watcher in the water
4.the long dark
5.foundations of stone
6.shadow and flame
Hiers of numenor deluxe pack (following cycle not out yet)
then theres the two hobbit packs, one of which is out the other is not
you can buy them without the core set
generally the cycles get harder as you would imagine
my advice as always is go in order
Agreed with rich.
You just need the core to play (3 quests)
With the other expansions/packs you increase the pool of cards and allow your daughter to build better decks…
Go in order is the best because you will get the cards as they were released and be able to play the game without cards from latter packs/expansions (which turns to be an rather joyfull experience, but occasionaly difficult)
The Hobbit, unlike rich said, needs the Core set to be playable because it only as 5 hero cards and 45 player cards, so it will leave a deck unplayable (those 45 cards include 3 copies of each card, so you remain with 15 different cards)
As it is said in the expansion page:http://www.fantasyfl...esem=2&esum=212
This is not a standalone set. A copy of The Lord of the Rings: The Core Set is required to play.
