The 300 cards with the 1,800 questions are now divided into the categories of: Good, Evil, Things, Places & History, Warfare, and Making Movies. They are all taken directly from the three films, although you are going to have to wait until the end of the year when "The Return of the King" comes out on DVD and you can listen to the commentary track(s) to have a fighting chance on some of these questions. However, if you are a true Lord of the Rings fan then there are expanded rules to raise your game playing to the next level, and I appreciate the effort to provide some sort of appropriate twist so that there is more to this version than the game board and the box of questions.
Speaking of the game board, it includes a map of Middle-Earth and along with a replica of the One Ring there are pewter pawns of Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn and Galadriel, as well as a Ringwraith token that has special powers. The big question is whether you have 2-4 friends who are as devoted to the films as you are so that you can actually play the game on a regular basis and not just sit around memorizing all the questions and answers (which sounds like something Saruman would do).
The player pieces are made out of pewter, which is really neat. The board looks pretty classy, although there are not that many questions(just one small box). Hopefully they will issue additional questions at a later date!!???
You can also play with a couple of play enhancements. There is a ring that you can win possession of when you get a piece of your pie and that ring allows you certain benefits. You can also play with the Ringwraith, which is sent around the board and if it lands on your square, you lose a piece of your pie. It just adds a little uniqueness to the game.
All in all it was a pretty good game. My husband who never forgets lines or scenes from movies absolutely loved this game. I still enjoyed it but I was not able to answer some of the more indepth questions.
We bought his game at the same time as the 20th Anniversary edition, this one blew that game right out of the water. If you are a Lord of the Rings fan, this game is definately for you!
Having said all that, this is really an enjoyable way to revel in the movie trilogy. It's very challenging to the casual fan, while between two fanatics, the one who "runs the table" will win the day. The expert rules regarding The One Ring and the Nazgul add some neat chrome, but I think the best way to challenge real experts here is to add the usual house rules, like having to answer two questions correctly for "a piece of pie" and to win the game.
Overall, this is quite a fun way to pass the time, especially if you're planning to stand/sit in line for seats at Trilogy Tuesday. Enjoy!
As a trivia game, this edition adds nothing, and players are better off with whichever of the other Trivial Pursuit game suits there interest and the level of challenge they are seeking. The questions in all but one of the categories in this edition are basically impossible go get wrong (unless you slept through the films), so there's little opportunity for the kind of general knowledge play that makes the typical Trivial Pursuit game fun. In only one category (about the making of the film) is there any challenge, and there the questions are often far too difficult (unless you've followed the lore of the making of the films in detail). This unevenness of the categories not only spoils the fun of making smart guesses or connecting arbitrary bits of world knowledge and factoids (the core of a decent trivia game), it exacerbates the well-known "end game" problem with Trivial Pursuit: the (endless) last phase of the game has everyone bouncing back and forth around the center space (in most games everyone will get that far at about the same time because most questions are so easy), fielding movie-making questions (what else would your opponents pick?!) until someone either makes a lucky guess or gets an easy question.Read more ›
