I'm pretty sure this was discussed here before, but I don't want to look through all topics, sorry:) My question is: do you ever play 1 hero in 2 players game, or do you always play 2 heroes? Because so far, we played only 1 hero and Sauron (always me) never won. Maybe I do something wrong, well I'm sure I do mistakes, but I can't just find out, how to react on two consequent turns for 1 hero. I'm especially very irritated (and this by coincidence happens almost every game) by this combo: first turn in Eriador, event "Find Grey pilgrim" (or something like that), second turn let's go to Bree, take reward for the quest AND Gandalf. This quest alone is I think too much strong, but in this situation, I would kill anything in my reach. Or let's crack a minion little, get defeated, heal in haven and finish him. No chance to heal as could be with 2 heroes, if the second one would be far away. Is the only solution really to play 2 heroes?
