  1. I mean there are people mentioning a Facebook group where info is getting shared, I was trying to find that. I linked one I was guessing it could be. Not asking about the mag as such, since either it is delayed (for the main rollout) or cancelled - I am north of Liverpool, but didn't get chance to check shops before we went into lock down, WHSmith is a short train trip from me, not doable right now.
  2. Hi, Where is the Facebook thing people mention above? This - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1524879351170755/ ?
  3. Game Trade Magazine (Issue 242) has Shadowed Paths as the cover game and you can read their look at it here - https://www.gametrademagazine.com/Home/1/1/58/581?articleID=241592
  4. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2019/8/2/the-hunt-begins-4/ The only thing I struggled with is where the new content is - I thought perhaps Collection but it's in the New section, you then purchase from there. £5.50 for UK. The linked article seems to hint it's in your appropriate store - eg Amazon, Google Play, etc as an extra thing to download. It's not, open the app and go to New.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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!)
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. @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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
