Please post anything I’ve missed. I’m going to keep bumping this thread and editing this post as we get more information. This thread is only for confirmed spoilers though, and in spite of how well reasoned your guesses might be, I won’t be adding those to the list. (For example, the names of Quests 4 ~ 6 were spoiled on BGG, but the thread was taken down and we don’t have confirmation.)

Rumil, Pursuing the Enemy and Galadhrim Minstrell were spoiled with The Dunland Trap, but the wording of the article indicates they are from the cycle and not necessarily that box. (Also, the numbers appear to all be double digits to me.) That is why they are listed as Others.

*Finally, take the card numbers with a grain of salt. I can’t read them very well on my screen and even FFG doesn’t seem to know sometimes as shown by Celeborn and Naith Guide both being called card 1. If you have a better screen and are really sure what the number is, I’ll add that to the list.

We, or at least part of the community, know the names of the rest of the AP's. They were posted at BGG and removed shortly. I can confirm that they seem to be legit since Trouble in Tharbad was among them (before the announcement obviously).

Isn't it "Pursuing the enemy"?


That's cursed table-talk, and I'll stick you, if you don't shut it down, see?'

Damn.  So it is.  Will fix it.

 

I saw the BGG thread too, but again, this is only for confirmed spoilers. And while I believe the titles to be correct I'm not going to add them to the thread unless we see them listed at a game store or some such.

Ok, just making sure you were aware of it. That's why I didn't post the names.

I think a good compromise is for the names to be posted here in the thread, but not in the first post until we have confirmation?  (Go for it.)

Ok, so here it goes:

 

A while ago someone posted the names on BGG saying they got them from a german online store called milan-spiele.de in which there were listed in preorder.

 

The three remaining ones are named:

 

The Antlered Crown FAN1082
The Nin-in-Eilph FAN1085
Celebrimbor's Secret FAN1086
 
The three trials and Trouble in Tharbad were also spoiled there.
 
So the antlered crown is what they were looking for in the second pack... Nin-in-Eilph is another name for Swanfleet, a marshland near Ost-in-edhil (I looove that location!!) And finally Celebrimor's secret!!! that can only mean something about rings and ring-making. A theory I have posted before is that we're helping Saruman in the making of his ring or something like that, or maybe he just makes the ring at the end of the cycle.

I remember the topic Gizlivadi mentions. I wrote back then that i believe we might get a Galadriel hero in Celebrimbors secret, since she was around back then and might have a clue on the ring making (Celebrimbor made the three Elven rings), but it is a guess. After all the names of the two last pack indicate that the heroes will be leading to Ost In Edhil ... Otherwise known as the capital of Eregion, ruled by Galadriel before Celebrimbor :)

We know that the Hero for Trouble in Tharbad is Silvan.

Oh... I hadn't been paying attention to that.  We have at least a month to wait then.  I was thinking we'd have it by the end of April.

I'm starting to get antsy for something new too. It's been almost a month since our last preview of Trouble in Tharbad.

If expect the next thing to either be the 4th AP (obviously) or it would also be about time where we would see a more detailed article about "the road darkens". Most likely about the quests themselves

I usually anticipate saga less than cycles but I am now looking most to see the Road Darkens (let us have a new preview soon, yes?)

As for the next cycle, I have high hopes it will be the best yet, the Silvan cards appeal greatly to me.

I'm excited for the new Saga expansion as well, especially because they're only adding one non-Frodo hero. Not that I'm glad about that, but it sure does make the anticipation level rise!

Playing an intense scenario, on the last stage, right when you notice you've been playing with two Bofurs the whole time.

It will surely be a staple hero as well.

Is part of the reason we're all gamers because we love the anticipation? I've just about made the full move from a PC gamer who dabbles in tabletop gaming, to a strict tabletop gamer, and I feel way giddy way more often now, waiting for pieces of cardboard, than I did for PC games.

Exactly this happened to me too.
And it's all my mate's fault dragging me into this.
