This tournament is part of the Living Tournament system. You are welcome to read this, play the scenario, and post your results (in that order). Place well enough, and you may just end up with a Living Tournament World Ranking!

Scenario: Flight from Moria
Deck Parameters: Open Build*
Number of Players: 2 Players

Tournament Parameters:

1) This is a Living Tournament. You may play and post results at your own pace.
2) *Open Build means you may use any legal LOTR LCG cards at your availability.
3) A valid result in this tournament consists of reporting your results (wins and losses) from 3 back-to-back games (may be spread out over as much time as you like), using the same deck for each of those 3 games. (Please observe the mulligan rule, and all other rules, from the LOTR LCG rulebook and subsequent official FAQ documents.)
4) After you post your results, the results from your 3 games will be calibrated using the RGun formula** to obtain your Weighted Result.
5) Weighted Results will then be ranked against other player’s Weighted Results, and the rankings will be updated over time as new results are posted to the thread.
6) You may play this tournament as many times as you would like (so you can try out different deck builds over time), but you can only hold one spot in the overall tournament rankings at a time (i.e. this gives you a chance to try and best your own result while only occupying one spot in the rankings).
7) Do not cheat. Just don’t. It destroys the fun and integrity of the tournament system. If you realize you have made a mistake at a later date that had serious implications for a result you had posted in the past, please make a new post in this thread drawing attention to that fact – that past result will be invalidated, and of course, you are welcome (and highly encouraged) to try again.

**The RGun formula has been designed to value both Final Score (per game) and overall Win Ratio (from your 3 games, cumulative). The formula is: (Average Score of Games Won) x (Total Games Played/Games Won). For an expanded discussion on how this formula was created, you can read the thread called Measuring Success.

Posting Your Results (Optional Information):
Game 1: I realized at the end that I had only one copy of "A Foe Beyond" in the encounter deck.
Game 2: Very rough adventure. Lost Gimli due to shadow effect, "discard defending character" which meant Goblin Spearman had a 4 damage undefended attack which knocked out Thalin. Also, lost Dain to "A Foe Beyond". Only able to get Gimli back before the end.
Game 3: Did really well. Had "Unexpected Courage" on Hero with "Abandoned Tools" and used that to sprint through Moria as I also found the corresponding quest card at nearly the same time. Had really good card draws: Unexpected Courage, 2x Quick Strikes, Steward of Gondor, Faramir, Rivendell Blade, Gondorian Spearman (excellent combo with Thalin)

Two Dwarf decks built more for theme than for strength, drawing from 3 x Core set plus all packs up to and including KD. We came to the scenario cold with no knowledge of the quest or encounter cards, which largely explains the loss in the first game.

I think you've only added 1 VP per completed round, rather than 10.

I think your scores should be:

200

214

114

Posting Your Results: Decks were constructed of cards from all sets currently available. My second game was almost perfect. Got Abandoned Tools with the opening cards, played it on Boromor, quickly got the the escape card in the quest deck, untapped Boromor three times and I was free! Boy did Boromir make this quest easier!
