Tough, so tough, decisions  
I've been giving some serious thought to taking up the Lord of the Rings TCG.

Thing is that I really don't think I could just end it with MTGO. Sooner or later one of us would call upon the other, and we'd get mired down in an endless cycle of wanting to get back together for one more game. Having seen the way Decipher has set up some of the pricing options, I somewhat wish Wizards would try using a similar model. If you pay $9.99 a month to be part of the "Fellowship", you get 4 booster packs (let's be honest, you're paying for them, really), as well as promo cards, and every few months event tickets for tournaments, etc. etc.

I've been hovering around the Check Out area for the game, but just haven't finalized any purchases.

The feeling akin to the kid in the candy (or whatever) shop with money burning a hole in his pocket.

now, can you join the fellowship multiple times? because that would be extra cool.

my biggest problem with ccgs that aren't magic is that it's tough to find someone to play with. you need to go into with a friends, and both agree to play the new game.

but i guess if you do it online, it's not that tough. i just remember having difficulty with it irl.

Oh very much so, RL card gaming was so difficult that I've completely done MTGO since the beginning of last year--or somewhere around that time frame.

Good question about the Fellowship. Probably not, though I don't know why you wouldn't be able to sign up multiple accounts, and have all of them as part of the Fellowship plan. It's not unheard of in MTGO, I believe.

I've been talking about LOTR online, and both guys in my office showed some interest, but wouldn't take the first step, I'm sure.
