Thanks for the answers.
So it's up to us then and how we want to make our decks depending our strategy. We are newbies so a lot of work and mix ahead.
Since apart from the core set we also have "hunt for Gollum", "Journey to Rhosgobel" "Watcher in the Water" and "Shadow and Flame" (just to have my favourite characters, we are not even close to try any of these, also have Massing at Osgiliath, love the Witch King) we may try some of those card in our decks for our core adventures
DurinIII yes I'm a Tolkien fan, first read Silmarillion back in 1997 (tough book to start with) , then Lord of the Rings a couple of years after.
For a reason I cannot explain while I had Hobbit also I read it when I heard that it is going to be a movie. I thought that I was not going to like it but eventually loved it as the others
While playing a lot of Board games never had one with cards like this and I really love it. Strange it may seem but my wife also loves it while she doesn't like any of Tolkiens works
