Given the last adventure pack has now been released for the Darrowdelf Cycle I think it's time for a follow-up card poll to the one I ran in March.

The voting will be open until Friday, August 31.  All cards in the Core, Shadows of Mirkwood Cycle, Khazad-dum and Darrowdelf Cycle are included in the pool to choose from (Hobbit is excluded).


I'll compile and publish the results after voting ends, and include a comparison to the results of the last poll. Feel free to respond to as many of the categories as you like. One set of votes per forum participant. Only one card per category. I know some cards only work really well in combination with certain others, but no combos included please.  It will be interesting to see how the results differ from the last poll.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Most Powerful Player Card - Leadership Sphere (excluding Heroes)
2. Most Powerful Player Card - Spirit Sphere (excluding Heroes)
3. Most Powerful Player Card - Lore Sphere (excluding Heroes)
4. Most Powerful Player Card - Tactics Sphere (excluding Heroes)
5. Most Powerful Player Card - All Spheres (excluding Gandalf)
6. Most Thematic Card (e.g. theme implemented really well by the combination of character/actions or event/actions, etc.)
7. Nastiest Encounter Card
8. Best Artwork (either Player or Encounter Card)
9. Favourite Hero
10. Favourite Quest

I am a little confused. Wouldn't it make sense to now include all cards from the - now completed - Dwarrowelf Cycle, not just Redhorn Gate? If I had to guess, I would say, you maybe copied that sentence out of that old thread?

Whoops, cut and paste error.  Updated original post to make clear all cards in Darrowdelf are included.

1. Most Powerful Player Card - Leadership Sphere - Steward of Gondor (its ability for multiple-turn uses edges out Sneak Attack for me)

2. Most Powerful Player Card - Spirit Sphere - A Test of Will (wanted to pick Arwen here, but since ATOW cancels pretty much eevry card people selected as an answer for #7… lol).

3. Most Powerful Player Card - Lore Sphere - Gildor (again, longevity - and versatility- wins out for me.. although I use Daeron's Runes in more decks)

4. Most Powerful Player Card - Tactics Sphere - Feint

5. Most Powerful Player Card - All Spheres -Steward of Gondor (Vilya was considered, but since no combos allowed…)

6. Most Thematic Card - Legacy of Durin (again with Elrond/Vilya a close second)

7. Nastiest Encounter Card - Sudden Pitfall  (I've survived Sleeping Sentry plenty of times, when SP drops on turn 1 with no allies in play… game over)

8. Best Artwork - Glorfindel (Spirit)

9. Favourite Hero - Theodred (Dain and Glorfindel are close behind)

10. Favourite Quest - Foundations of Stone (the great mix of a muliplayer AND solo feel is just super creative)!
