3.0 out of 5 stars Some dwarf cards, some secrecy, and a middling quality encounter 30 Oct 2013
By Robert Plantikow - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In terms of strong theme, this encounter pack probably isn't as engaging as some of the others. The lasting impressions of it after many plays are this--you need to quest a lot, because the paths require many tokens to complete, and you need to watch out for the Sleeping Sentry. There are enemies with the ambush keyword, but what that means is if you are prepared for a surprise attack, ambush can actually be helpful, as it helps prevent enemies from contributing shadow during the quest phase. But, the Sleeping Sentry absolutely warrants some significant discussion. There are two copies of this card in the encounter deck. You must account for them. When they come, (either by revealing from the encounter deck, or as a shadow effect in combat--doesn't matter which as they are both really bad) it is devastating. If you can't counter it, you're likely going to lose, almost instantly. You can (and must) design your deck specifically to account for Sleeping Sentry (A Test of Will, Hasty Stroke, etc.) if you have any expectation to win consistently. I am not a fan of a single card this powerful, and certainly some will like it and some won't. I believe in "easy mode" the Sleeping Sentries are removed, which prevents this issue, but then leaves a fairly bland encounter that isn't all that fun.

Discussion of the player cards. The hero is Elladan. He's an ok hero, but only if you use his brother Elrohir--Elrohir is the better hero--I prefer the defensive bonus rather than the offensive bonus. Together they provide a strong attacker and a strong defender, and both quest for 2 willpower. If you do not intend to build a deck using the Elladan/Elrohir combination, then this hero simply is no value to you--other heroes are much better. Note--Elrohir is in the Redhorn Gate adventure pack. I have combined Elrohir and Elladan with an eagles concept and done quite well with it. There are a couple good player cards for the Secrecy concept (Dunedain Wanderer, Out of the Wild) that aren't useful in most other deck concepts. Rider of the Mark is a strong Rohan ally. Lure of Moria is good for dwarf decks, as is Bombur, although his ability is not limited to dwarf decks, but rather is tailor-made for the Moria themed encounters with many underground locations. My favorite card out of this pack is the Rivendell Blade--one of the strongest weapons (and low cost) printed so far, but with some limitation of who can use it. Elladan and Legolas are great heros for this card.

So, overall, this pack is 3 out of 5 stars. I like the encounter (but don't love it), and I hate the Sleeping Sentry. I use Elladan and Elrohir together quite often, but I'm probably an exception. The player cards are just ok with one card I really like (Rivendell Blade).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good 18 Jun 2012
By Tolkien fan - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The new hero is not so great but road to rivendell is a great expansion to get.
This adventure pack is harder than you think. Comes with some good player cards.
In road to rivendell you have to escort Arwen to rivendell along the misty mountains. If Arwen dies you fail.

To play you must have the core set and the Kazad-Dum expansion.
2.0 out of 5 stars Non-essential expansion to a REALLY enjoyable card game. 17 April 2014
By Jeremy Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The two stars are because I believe this to be one of the 5 least interesting expansions/adventure packs released for the Lord of the Rings Living Card Game. The LOTR LCG itself is a blast. I began playing after the Heirs of Numenor expansion and now own all the expansions available but The Redhorn gate as I saw that release and this one as the least valuable additions to my card pool. Here's why:

A) unremarkable hero--Elladan (Son of Elrond) is a fun thematic choice and has a thematic ability that plays off his brother being in play (Elrohir from The Redhorn Gate AP). Past the fun idea of making a thematic Noldor Royalty deck, Elladan will just not see much playing time even in a card pool made solely of the core set. Needing another hero (from a different sphere nonetheless) to activate his ability is very limiting.

B) Unremarkable quest--it is enjoyable, but not one I will return to again and again like some of the newer releases in the Against the Shadow cycle or HON expansion. Lots of willpower and some treachery cancellation are imperative in this quest. In the expanded card pool available today, this encounter deck does not pose a great challenger nor does it provide any "epic" type moments (see the Foundations of Stone; Shadow and Flame; The Morgul Vale APs for some of those more "epic" quests).

C) Non-essential, niche player cards--Rivendell Blade is a great toy for Legolas and Lure of Moria can mean game over when used with a dwarf deck, but neither are essential components. There is some secrecy cards as well (Out of the Wild lets you remove cards from the encounter deck permanently, which is no small feat, to be sure), but again only useful if playing with the niche "secrecy" decks. Any fan of Bombur's barrel roll in the most recent Hobbit film will enjoy his ally card popping up in this AP (albeit a marginally useful ally at best).

Again, I LOVE the LOTR LCG and rate the over game 5-stars. I am happy with this purchase. But if you are building your card pool or just getting into the game, I would recommend nearly EVERY other expansion and Adventure Pack before this one.
5.0 out of 5 stars Watch Out! 18 Feb 2014
By Mark Starr - Published on Amazon.com

Watch out this one is a challenge! If playing in campaign mode you had best be prepared! No pun intended but in order to defeat (or protect) you need to have your cards in a row! Great fun but I would suggest you'll need sleeve protectors for the cards as YOU WILL go through this deck MANY, MANY, MANY times before fou you progress! SAVE THE QUEEN!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tricky But Entertaining Adventure 12 Nov 2013
By Michael C. Plowden - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This adventure can be deceptively challenging, so keep your wits about you.

Quality work, as with all LotR LCG adventure packs.
