It can be incredibly hard for a new player, but you should get into the swing of things quickly. Even then, it can be a soul-crusher

Yes. Is that even a question? :P

Yes. Every now and then a thread will pop up with a troll giving faulty evidence that the game is dying. Take no notice of such.

Well, eventually. Hopefully it will take the apocalypse and the end of human existence, though.

Here are some helpful things to know before jumping in.

Pros:

extremely thematic and true to source material

immersive cooperative play

enthusiastic and helpful community

endless replayability with expansions that add new quests and player cards

Cons:

difficulty

price point to keep up with expansions.

Make sure you check this page out:  and all of the community's blogs, podcasts, and other fantastic resources. This isn't completely up to date, so make sure you look around here, on BGG, and the internet for other, newer content.

And most of all, have fun! :)

It is a great skeleton of a design. Learn to play and there are almost 200 quests (roughly 100 unique with extended difficulty for most).

It is a great experience to sit down and not have to learn a new game constantly but have each scenario be somewhat different so you get the best of both worlds. Replaying them with different decks is fun too.

You can take the game as seriously as you want, go it alone or build decks from the internet. Play easy mode or nightmare mode.  

In summation, it is an incredible thematic and well designed game, whose difficulty and time needed scale to your level of interest. While offering a new experience with each pack while allowing you to not learn a new set of rules each time when compared to buying constant new board games. Play alone or play with friends. This game has it all.

If you never play any TCG/LCG you will have to learn to deckbuild. It will probably be quite long because it is deep :). As I intensely play some of those games for the half of my life I never found this game that hard... because I get to learn the hard way way before ^^.

Every Deluxe is a standalone (but difficulty of the scenario tempt to increase over the time), every saga is standalone but the main interest is to play them in the order (like....a saga ^^), every adventure pack (usually written AP) belong to a cycle and is linked to a deluxe (to the core set for the first cycle), you need the deluxe to play the scenario, and the whole deluxe+cycle make a story on their own (even more true since the third cycle).

Have fun!

In this game, when you deckbuild, you want to look add a good combinations of cards for the spheres of the Heroes you are using. So say if you were using two spirit heroes and a tactics hero, you would want to have less expensive tactics cards (two cost and under) and a higher amount of spirit cards. A good starting point for deck construction is roughly twenty allies, fifteen attachments, and fifteen events. If you get the game and want help deck-building, just let us know.

I like personally Sagas... Hobit and LOTR saga, because They have continue story.

the advise above is good. Also playing easy mode or modified easy mode in the Beginning can be useful (one extra resource at the Beginning change a lot!) try to include something to deal with locations (northern tracker) have enough fighting power, have enough questing power. I personally like cancelation cards that can prevent some really devasting events...

I would try to distinguish the game being "hard to play" from being "hard to win".  I don't think it's that hard to play.  (Yes there are rules ripples, but that's the nature of every card game imo.)  Some quests are incredibly hard to win though and that's what makes it fun.  It IS a deckbuilding game, but you can go to www.ringsdb.com and see many different decks.  Copy shamelessly.

If you're still there there, I can play for the next short while

EDIT: I have a game up. I'll keep it up for as long as I still have time to actually play after.
