Discussion

This was a pretty fun campaign to play. Playing with the full Fellowship, especially with the current edition’s profiles (which contains many thematic special rules), is really fun! They can really be quite the well-oiled machine. As you can see from the statistics, Good won nearly every scenario. In terms of balance, I do think Good has the advantage in most of the scenarios. Nevertheless, some games were really tense and/or thematic, so job well done for the game designers! Even with playing the new rules and profiles, most of the scenarios hold up very well.

Personal highlights for me were:

  • The very first scenario (Flight to the Ferry) because it was the start of this full campaign and after many, many hours of hard work I finally got to play the game, for me the first time playing a game of SBG with the new rules. And the scenario itself didn’t disappoint, very fun, quick and thematic.
  • All of the Moria scenarios (Watcher in the Water, Balin’s Tomb, Bridge of Khazad-dûm) for different reasons. Watcher in the Water was really fun to play and the terrain I built for it made me enjoy it even more. Additionally I managed to grab the old Games Workshop tentacles for the Watcher on eBay and really liked playing with such cool and unique models.
  • Balin’s Tomb I’ve played on multiple occasions over all my hobby years and has always been fun in my mind. It’s the first time in this campaign that you have the full fellowship facing off against a ‘normal’ army. Also the setting (Balin’s tomb) is really fun. The hobbits can hide behind pillars while the beefier heroes defend the entrance.
  • Bridge of Khazad-Dûm was incredibly thematic and extremely close to what happened in the books. It’s a fun scenario with really immersive terrain and my play of it couldn’t have gone any better.
