I was a player/collector of the Middle-earth CCG that Iron Crown Enterprises made in the late '90s, and I was saddened that their license was revoked and given to Decipher who then produced a LotR CCG with photos from the films. [Gag! I much prefer original artwork based on the books!] They in turn lost the license and Tolkien Enterprises (now Middle-earth Enterprises) granted it to Sophisticated Games, the UK counterpart to Fantasy Flight.
Previously they had made the LOTR board game nicely illustrated by John Howe. I'm pleased to see an opportunity for artists to render Middle-earth again and looking forward to these new cards!
