Great themed adventure, with strong player cards 24 Oct. 2013
By Robert Plantikow - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This adventure pack is another great example of how well Fantasy Flight has been able to design thematic adventures. It's hard to believe you can create a game that is simply "cards" but yet it can make you feel like you are "right there in the game." If you've seen the Lord of the Rings, or read the books, the scenes at the gates of Moria are memorable, and in this encouter you'll be challenged with tentacles grabbing your characters and pulling them into the water, using other characters to free them and fight off the tentacles and the Watcher itself, all while trying to figure out how to get the doors open and run inside.

Notes on the player cards. This Lore version of Aragorn is outstanding. Once per game you can re-set your threat to starting levels. Useful in almost any deck. Doubly so in solo play. Triply so if you are building a Secrecy concept deck. Great card. Other player cards of note--Arwen is a great card for both defense and questing--a top notch ally. Elrond's Counsel and Resourceful are staples for the aforementioned Secrecy concepts. Sword That Was Broken is a game changer for any deck using Aragorn. The rest of the cards are just ok, but for the 4 cards I mentioned, this is a very good lot.

In terms of challenge, this adventure's difficulty is really contingent on whether or not you have any way to preview the cards coming from the encouter deck (Rumor From the Earth, Henamarth Riversong, etc.). Either one of those really helps with predicting how the erratic tentacles will behave in combat, and they unlock the key to opening the doors of Durin. Without them, your chances of solving that riddle are really based on pure luck. This is a fairly short adventure compared to others, and very satisfying when you beat it. There have been any number of times where I've managed to get the door open, and then quest for broke as the entire party tries to generate willpower to win the game, just sneaking in the door at the last second. Very exciting.

This is a good adventure pack. Five stars.

Loragorn and Arwen are worth the price of admission. 28 Mar. 2014
By Jeremy Smith - Published on Amazon.com

In addition to the toughest all-around hero stats, Lore Aragorn's (aka Loragorn) ability to return your threat to it's starting level is an unparalleled form of threat management. The Arwen ally card is one of the the top-3 allies in the game, even more than a year after her release. Not only does this pack come with Aragorn and his bride, but it also has his favorite toy--the Sword that was Broken--which brings Aragorn into near-Dain Ironfoot prowess. Top-notch dwarven (card-draw in Legacy of Durin attachment) and secrecy (Resourceful attachment) add additional top-tier support in this AP even if they are geared toward specific deck builds.
The quest is also a lot of fun, as one of the first true "boss" fights in the LOTR LCG series. It does have a quirky mechanic that can be broken with scrying, but if you're interested in a challenge with a great thematic feel, this quest can definitely come through.

An Epic Battle You Won't Forget 12 Nov. 2013
By Michael C. Plowden - Published on Amazon.com

This entire pack is dedicated to fighting the Watcher in the Water (or the lake monster, if you've only seen the films). I was so glad that FFG decided to go this route and really explore what it's like fighting such an alien and monstrous foe.
Where is Arwen? 5 Mar. 2014
By Mark Starr - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Great adventure pack..but still waiting for Arwen to come into play. She is a beautiful asset to the quests when will we find her? As usual FFG has done a wonderful job of a fair and playable game, but YOU must do some research in the original LOR trilogy books to understand it all! For example: where does "Buckelberry Ferry" and "Bill the Pony" fit into your quests? The team had to let go of "Bill" in the first half of the LOR, but couldn't he be re-shuffeled into your deck? These are questions to be asked! I, personally cried when they let him go.... all great fun, a great game a my hopes is that it will continue for a VERY long, long time!
Strider! 24 Feb. 2015
By D. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Contains one of my favorite characters from Lord of the Rings, Aragorn as Strider. Awesome artwork. Also, Arwen is a nice card, and her artwork is beautiful. The scenario is very compelling as well, as it puts you in the mix and is engaging.
