    I am seriously considering selling my lotr to fund an Iron Maiden or possibly a Houdini. Just wondering what people think. Lotr is going to my brother in law so I will be able to play it a few times a year and I have first option to buy it back later. I have been wanting an IM for a while and played both the pro ( recently) and the premium ( a while ago) and love both but think I’d most likely go the premium route. I think the game will be good especially in a small collection (2-4 games typically)
    I also played Houdini and really enjoyed it but am nervous since I only played it a few times.

    I sold my LOTR to buy an Iron Maiden pro and I have never looked back. LOTR is a great game but I was finding my games going really long and not feeling like I needed to play a second game when I fired it up. Iron Maiden is just the opposite and has a "just one more game" feeling every time. I have a small collection too, and it's currently paired with Williams Indiana Jones. I think it was a great decision.

    I own both and have previously owned LOTR. IMDN is absolutely awesome, and fast/chaotic and fun to play. So is Houdini. I’d say IMDN is a little more predictible in terms of the shots, and while it is super fun, most games are pretty much the same. Houdini, on the Other hand, is different every time. But Damn is it hard. I doubt you’d regret trading in LOTR for either. Make sure you play a couple more games on Houdini so you understand the unique shots and how you really have to play with a lot of nuance to get the shots. You can’t just blast the ball everywhere like on most games. For certain shots you have to really be very gentle. Game is awesome

    LOTR is a great game, but I don't miss it at all. If you are considering letting it go, and can visit it if you miss it, it's a no brainer. Maiden is awesome. Very different, very fresh. I think it's a keeper. I wasn't crazy about Houdini. Seems like they are taking a hit on the secondary market. Maiden all the way.
