Welcome & Introduction:
Welcome to what has evolved into an extended edition of my first LOTR LCG 2 Player Tournament. After some thoughtful discussion (see the first 2 pages of posts to this thread) the idea for hosting a LOTR LCG 2 Player Tournament has grown from the confines of what was a weeklong affair to a month long extravaganza.
The idea behind this is that for one month (December ’11 - with the days beginning from November 27th grandfathered into this particular tournament), everyone is invited to participate in playing a particular quest with particular deck building requirements in a 2 Player Tournament. You are then invited to record and post your final score, the heroes used, specifics on deck building components, and any additional narrative you’d like to add.
Note: this is not a place to post results from the past. The tournament has a one-month lifespan, and only games played and recorded throughout this month are valid. As the month unfolds, I will keep this first post updated with the Top Ten results. (Each participant can occupy a maximum of one Top Ten spot at a time, so you’re welcome to try and best your own result throughout the month.) See also, The juicebox LOTR LCG Top Ten Hall of Fame.
Will you place in the final Top Ten? I hope you’ll participate and find out!
After the end of this month’s tournament, you are welcome to continue to post results to this thread if you continue to play this particular quest under these particular parameters. However, the Top Ten on this first post will not continue to be updated after the month is over, thus preserving (like a time capsule) the results from this 2 Player tournament. Further, please refrain from using this thread for extensive theorizing and/or conversation that is not directly related to this particular tournament. Nothing against other conversations – it’s just, that’s what other threads are for. Specifically, if you have ideas for a future tournament of the month, feel free to suggest them in the Ideas Thread.
And now… on to this month’s 2 Player Tournament!
2 Player Tournament #1:
Quest: Escape from Dol Guldur
Deck Parameters: 1-3 Core Sets + Up to 1 Adventure Pack of Your Choice*
Number of Players: 2 Players
*In deck building for this month’s tournament, each player may use cards from 1-3 copies of the Core Set + up to 1 chosen Adventure Pack per deck. When you post your results, please indicate how many core sets were used in construction and which adventure pack(s) were included (if you included an AP) in each deck. The number of CS/AP included will only matter in the case of needing a tie breaker, with the advantage going to the players who used fewer core sets and/or did not include an adventure pack(s) in deck building. Enjoy this month’s challenge!
