My favorite 2-player game ever. LOTR: The Confrontation is the kind of game you can play over and over again, without it ever getting old. In fact, one of its best aspects is how players' strategies evolve with each play. Another excellent strength of this game is its exquisite balance despite each player having utterly different pieces. Finally, this is Reiner Knizia's most flavorful game. At less than $15, this is a steal.
