Due to the amount of time between print runs, sometimes it’s not possible for new players to buy expansions in the order that they were released. But The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game has a lot of content to choose from. New players may want to play expansions in a different order based on current availability, or to cherry-pick based on the player cards.
But which new expansions would make a good second purchase after the Core Set? Are modern quests too hard with a small card pool?
I answer these sorts of questions in Path Less Traveled. I play some of the newer quests as if I were starting out fresh, with nothing but a single Core Set and player cards from a modern cycle.
