Greetings from Maryland USA & Book Question

Tue May 31, 2016 4:00 am

Greetings Strategy Battle types. Long time gamer new to LOTR SBG.

I'm looking at acquiring the rulebook. The small Hobbit SBG rule book (part of Escape from goblin town) on EBay is significantly cheaper than the $85 big main book. What benefits is their to the big book over the small one (other than size)?

Thank you.

Hi Ranger,

You get the basic set of new rules from the smaller book, but if I remember correctly it doesn't have any profiles for the heroes and warriors. The big book also has scenarios and hobby-stuff and a sort of a catalogue of pictures of all the different armies of lotr sbg.

If you are just starting so the bigger book might be worth getting - it is a nice book - but the rules to play you get from the smaller one. I think it was possible to get the profiles of the bigger book from GWs page, for a while at least.

Welcome to TLA

I prefer the small book myself - not just because of the price difference, but because it is so much more portable.
