um I hate to be a pain but I do have a question, I currently own the Lord of the rings and Hobbit Deck building game as well as my DC. and I was wondering if Crypt, was going to make a Battle of the five armies expansion. I luckily got the desolation of smaug, and it was a hard find for me, I was able to pick up all the core sets for only around 10$ each, but the Desolation set cost me about 50 cause it was a limited run, I guess. are you guys planning on finishing that game set with the last movie expansion? or should I not hold my breath?

The Hobbit games did not sell well enough, so we had to cancel the final movie game. It won't be coming out.

I feel your pain. I was hoping we'd get a second Street Fighter set or at least an expansion by now.

...Crypto wouldn't be able to run it as a print-on-demand set from a site like DrivethruCards.com, would they?

Not likely. The rules for licensed games are more restrictive.

yea it made me cry I had to bust out 50 dollars for desolation of smaug just to get my collection complete, I guess that's not terrible, I only paid about 10 dollars each for all of the core sets it would be nice if you guys at least did another small set just to finish game.

Don't know. AEG was in charge of sales and distribution.

I guess my point is, is that you have the image content and license to make the edition for other games, you could do a limited collecters edition run, that would be found at a convention say gen con, or comicon at least then the game isn't open ended.

see ffg uses the same art for all their games, if you get xwing, armada and imp assault, you will notice that 90% of their artwork is recycled, you could do that just pop out a quick expansion to finish up the game and give it some closure. but im sure you wont cause like you said, no profit in the game Y_Y peeps gots to makes the moneys

OR some active, enthusiastic fan with Photoshop skills could make a custom fan set for it.

DimeDrl and I barely were able to get the last copies of Desolation of Smaug because of its poor sales and that was with approaching Cryptozoic at Wondercon last year as in 2016

So more than likely the hobbit is done, I'm hoping maybe Naruto makes a comeback so we get that completed expansion we've heard about and maybe even a proper BEN 10 deck building game

Let's all agree that LotR and Naruto as DBGs are done and settle on pushing Crypto to make a Power Rangers deck builder through creepy peer pressure.

I'll start.

Come on, Matt. Ya know ya wannaaaa. Just give it a try. Make an Alpha 5 oversized card and see how you like it. It's gonna feel reeeaaalll good.

With news of the upcoming LOTR tv show, would there be any chance of the 3rd expansion being brought back?

Doubtful. If it were a Hobbit show, still doubtful.
