I played another game of Lord of the Rings with the Friends and Foes
expansion this evening, and we came very very close to winning, with
Sauron starting on 15. All the hobbits survived to Mordor, and we
were in tolerable shape, but Pippin had a ton of traveling cards and
we thought we'd make it. Sadly, Frodo fell, then Pippin, then Sam.
Merry made it to Mount Doom, but failed to destroy the ring. We got
77 points (60 + 17 defeated foes). We skipped Helm's Deep by
defeating foes. This is a great game, and I look forward to
continuing to try to beat the expansion.
