Expansions announced amid mixed reviews. Well played FFG...Well played.

Recommended Posts

If you view this as 3 miniatures with some card based content plus 11 adventures for $20 it is an amazing expansion for the price.  The key is how the app cuts production costs for most of the game content.  FFGs expansion support appears to be great, hopefully the game will be as well.

I'm looking forward to future expansions that will include more terrain/puzzle pieces.  Even though I'm sure that would up the cost.  Seems like there is a lot of opportunity for expansion with the terrain, and for exploring different areas of middle earth.

4.99 for an additional campaign is great value.

I’m not so sure about the physical expansion. Just 6 new items and some mini-bosses that might show up during the campaign? For $10+?  What’s stopping me from claiming I own it in my collection and just proxying the cards?

I’d be much more interested in an expansion with new characters or new class/role (whatever they are called) decks.

Yeah, I kinda agree about the physical expansion. I'm not sure how the cards work but it seems like the trinkets and titles have to be earned in-game, so they might not even come into play at all. That is disappointing.

The cards look cool though, but I also worry if it becomes part a power creep. What if the scenarios get so hard that you're almost forced to buy these little expansions? I don't think that'll be the case, but it's definitely a concern.

Yah honestly I would probably end up proxying it haha. Though maybe you need a code or something to log it in the app?

I think terrain would be a super cool idea. Make the battle maps a bit more flushed out. They come out with terrain for legion so they are capable.

Imperial Assault didn’t require anything like that for its app, and from what I understand neither did MoM or Descent.  I’d be surprised if this one did.

Ah good to know!

My advice: people should try the game before spending money on 3D terrain.  GW's Black Stone Fortress appears to have some similarities to LotR Journeys in terms of map configuration.  BSF showed us that using objects that obstruct the view of the game board surface (depending where you sit) is problematic at best.  Fluff should not negatively impact the mechanics of playing the game so I would play test with found objects to see if it is functional before spending money on a bunch of terrain.

Is there any way to link the expansions in different formats? 

 

E.g. I have M.o.M and have the app on my phone and steam. If I did this with JiME would I need to buy 2 copies?

From what I can say, so far there doesn’t seem to be any syncing between Steam and iOS (even between different iOS devices using the same Apple account). So looks like multiple purchases for different platforms. 

However, Steam does sync within the same account between different PC’s and Macs.

If you’re asking about digital content then, as @MeeKey described, you will likely need to by it for each platform.

Physical content like the figure pack shouldn’t be a problem though.
