  1. Basics - I tend to pick it up as soon as it's out officially in the UK, or the week after. It's my confirmation on here that it is definitely in UK shops, there have been delays sometimes. This thread isn't about US release dates, we have those already.
  2. The final pack for Ered Mithrin cycle, the Fate of Wilderland, has been released in the UK. Added the upcoming Gen Con 2019 pack - The Mines of Moria Custom Scenario Kit.
  3. Update: 5/5/19 Wizard's Quest and Woodland Realm are definitely out, I got them from Gameslore. Asmodee were great regarding Attack on Dol Guldur - turns out it was released quietly in January 2019 and I totally missed it. One of the Asmodee contacts said they'll try to reorder it but my main contact found a UK shop selling it for me. So now I have it! It looks like the shop has more copies available, I can message you the web address if need be. There is still one copy of the special collectors edition of the game in Fanboy 3 in Manchester, if anyone is wanting it. It's that or via the store with a silly amount of shipping. I've updated the OP now to reflect all the changes from this update
  4. According to Asmodee's release this for this coming week, both Wizard's Quest and The Woodland Realm are going to be out! PDF link - https://www.asmodee.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/1918-__-29-04-2019-__-WEB.pdf No idea what is going on with Attack on Dol Guldur then, a year overdue (darn those Wizards and their timings!)
  5. I have to admit I didn't blink when I first read the news article about the next expansion, Hunt for the Ember Crown. It was seeing a discussion, by some people who are very much more lore-masters than I (and I won't embarrass them, but they are in the game industry), that I wondered about this strange phrase used several times - Elves of the Blue Mountains. Now Dwarves of the Blue Mountains is a known Tolkien-phrase. But Elves? The various wikis, good starting points but not fonts of all knowledge, have some info on the Blue Mountains: http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Blue_Mountains https://lotr.fandom.com/wiki/Blue_Mountains So there are Elves in the lands either side of the Blue Mountains, but the Blue Mountains themselves are more the old Dwarf kingdoms, so the term is a little odd and definitely not one Tolkien would use. Does it matter? Probably not, but definitely stands out in the shown questing text. Overall, FFG are very good with lore, so this one just seems a little odd on their part.
  6. The app is also available on Amazon (for anyone like me with a Kindle Fire) - search for "Journeys in Middle-earth" in the app store.
  7. We are definitely falling behind in terms of these. I'll try a general email to Asmodee, it's possible my contact has moved on.
  8. @Sasajak This store was mentioned by Encounter Roleplay, as a sponsor of their feed for their Adventures in Middle=earth campaign - https://www.waylandgames.co.uk/30-lord-of-the-rings-card-game Never ordered from them personally, so no experience of the customer service. Got them mixed up with Birmingham's Waylands Forge (http://www.waylandsforge.co.uk/) for a second there, which I have visited and bought from.
  9. and updated OP to current info. I've tried emailing my contact at Asmodee, but not heard anything back sadly. We are far behind in terms of the Gen Con packs now.
  10. Apologies! I hadn't realised I was logged out of here, so missed posts. In terms of shops - I use Gameslore to get the new stuff. You could try contacting places like Orc's Nest in London, see if they have it. You have Fanboy 3 in Manchester which is where I picked up the Collector's box that was near on impossible to get hold of (last time I went they still had one copy left, but that was a while ago). Certain Forbidden Planets also stock the game.
  11. Update to OP (9/2/19) Added the final AP for the Ered Mithrin cycle - Fate of Wilderland.
  12. 2019 update (altered the first post!) Was in touch with Asmodee in the New Year, just waiting om what they can find about the still missing items from above. Will keep updating as I find info and posting here ** There is still a copy of the Collectors Edition in Fanboy 3 (Manchester, UK) if anyone is looking for it.
  13. If this game is like Descent, which is what I have seen it likened to - the app for that is available from Apple store, Google store, Amazon store and Steam. That would be great if that is the case here, I'd use my Kindle fire.
  14. I'm really looking forward to this game! So much Tolkien love going on in the gaming world atm, it's a wonder to see
