Played my first game of this last night, and I am a fan.  It has been a long time since I played a collectable card game (MtG, about 15 years ago).  We had a couple questions come up that were not specifically adressed in the rulebook, and skimming the 23 page FAQ hasn't produced results.  I apologize in advance, but I only ran a quick search on the forums and didn't find the answer.

#1. Winter, Summer, how does it work?  If it is not winter, is it assumed to be summer?  I found through the forum search that there are only 3 cards available that make it winter? (or effective at making it winter)...

 

#2. "I'm You Writ Small" L 165  I assume the "boon" description is not important unless a card were to come out targeting boon attachments.  Does the attachment stay with card like a normal attachment? 

 

#3 Is there a hand limit?  I know there is a draw cap, I haven't found anything suggesting a hand limit yet.

 

#4 The big expansions that have house Martell and Grejoy, do they come with premade decks for these houses like the core set?

 

#5 I blindly picked up 3 chapter packs while at the local  gaming store. (Don't judge me, I had a 1.5 yr old in my arm and a 3 yr old that was REALLY interested in the miniatures tournament going on, I just had to buy and get out!)  The "Epic Battles" pack I picked up actually was printed for CCG version, anyone know off hand if these cards are still OK to use?  (Looks like an "epic phase" is referenced a lot in these cards)

#6 Is there a good resource out there that will give me an idea of what I am getting in these chapter packs?  A quick overview of some kind?  I am too new to really benefit from the database sites I have come across

#7 Any place to find some basic strategy that is not in forum form?

Welcome!

It's simple - you need some card that gives you something while it's Summer or Winter. If there is no Summer nor Winter, then it's simply no season. It will be more clear for you if you read more cards.

Yes, traits are important only when card says about them, otherwise they are meaningless. I'm You Writ Small becomes attachment, so you treat it like attachment (i.e. it stays on character).

No.

Yes. Just remember that, depends on version, you get 1, 2 or 3 identical decks from such box. Of course it's recommended buying revised version with 3 copies of every card.

All chapter packs are legal in LCG. I'm not sure if it is good resource for you, but you can click link in my signature to find out what you get in each chapter/box. If you want specific advise what to buy, then there is some topics about that in general section.

Check out the cycle highlights and Danigral's reviews at CardGameDB for some stuff that could help. There are also some general strategy articles that could help.

Epic Battles (and the rest of the Clash of Arms cycle) look like they belong to the CCG (because of the black borders), but they are legal LCG cards.
