"If we just did a perfect translation of the physical game, it could work, until it doesn't," studio head of Fantasy Flight Interactive Tim Gerritsen told me in a phone interview. "We're inspired by the tabletop edition of The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game, with many nods, but we're not a one-to-one translation of it."
With some familiarity with the card rendition and the LCG concept, I could see that first-hand after viewing a developer demo. It's not exactly the same, but the entire core of the "living" concept, which involves buying pre-set cards and no blind boxes, is going to appeal to a lot of people.
