Well just finished my first solo game. Ouch. I was doing pretty good until Ungoliant Spawn came out. I had already taken a bit of a beating from Chieftain Ufthak but I took him down, I had engaged him before he engaged me to get started on the damage. Then Ungoliant Spawn came out and she just started to eat my allies as fast as I could play them, then my heroes, finally Aragorn went down leaving a lone Snowbourn Scout who was promptly eaten by the King Spider that had joined Ungoliant Spawn.
I was using the beginner leadership deck. My threat ended at 39, final score after calculations was 62. I only managed to make it to stage 2B. I really like leadership and will likely make it my main sphere. Aragorn and Theodred are a great team and the Dwarf that comes out for free is a great free replacement for when Gloin dies. I did get Gandalf out but had to pay for him and used his deal damage ability to take out a Hummerhorn before it could engage me which was getting close to not being an option.
Will be playing a bunch more tomorrow as I have the house to myself for most of the day. Maybe another game tonight before Game of Thrones is on HBO.
