Highly recommend it. Read the reviews and they are not lying. I would wait for summer when a reprint comes so the price goes down.

Yes, 1st edition was already a wonderfull game, maybe the best Tolkien boardgame. It is to be play in a full day or a 2-afternoons weekend.
The small flaw was it's better to use it with 2 players than with 4, I don't know about the 2nd ed.

We have not yet played 4. We will be playing a 2v1 soon and this summer we will get to a couple 2v2 ill let you know how it goes. The warriors expansion really improved the already awesome 2nd edition.

I have this game and it is very enjoyable and well done. It can easily be played solo with just a few self agreed upon house rules.
