remarks are mine

  • It *is* still in development [some feared it had been abandoned]
  • The time period is after Bilbo left the Shire, but before the Lord of the Rings book [sic – he presumably means ‘before the Shadow of the Past visit by Gandalf’]
  • You won’t play the LotR heroes, but will encounter them (i.e. Aragorn, off looking for Gollum)
  • The box size is … about the size of War of the Ring box [not ultra-huge like their StarCraft and World of Warcraft boardgames]

  • It’s being designed by [FFG founder and sometimes game designer] Christian Petersen himself
  • Current estimate of release is Spring 2009
