It is well known that FFG doesn't get 'difficulty rating' right (some may argue that they pull a number from a bowl and stick it as the difficulty), but FaS really took me by surprise.
I played with two friends, one being a rookie (first game played) and the other somewhat inexperienced; we played all 9 Dwarf heroes in three very thigh decks.
Now, I knew we would perform well, but the game was ABSURDLY fast and easy. One of us were NEVER attacked by the Balrog. The game lasted no more than 5 rounds and a few minutes (I really don't have a good time notion when playing). Gimli decimated the Balrog and then, we used the refresh action to win the game. Some nasty treacheries were revealed, but Thalin wasn't used very much since very few enemies were revealed.
Maybe we did something wrong, but I can't find what it was.
Anyone else had this experience?
