  1. I can't help but wonder if you are playing on Hard? I have played all the campaign, except the finale. I find almost all enemies to just be a nuisance. Just there to make you waste actions. Almost all combats are one two actions with minimal damage. Bosses are tougher, sure, but manageable. My experience is the game is almost too easy.
  2. The LoR LCG Collector's Edition was the same deal. That one I passed on.
  3. The mats are small, 13" x 6". Five of them aren't much bigger than a single card game playmat. My expectations are set for neoprene and not paper.
  4. I have a deck registered with that combo, so it must be your search parameters.
  5. We currently have three spots open for our Invocation event at The Soldiery in Columbus. We are playing Sunday, December 17th starting at 3:00 pm. Cost is just $15 We will be playing Curse of the Rougarou and Carnavale of Horrors in Stand Alone mode Preregister by email to jkayati@gmail.com
  6. That's an excellent point, Starbreaker1. I will definitely attempt to get me FLGS to at least one kit. We'll see what the price point is, and I imagine that will determine if I can get them to order more than one. What does everyone think the cost should be? $15? $20?
  7. With just a mat and alt art cards, this isn't very appealing. The LotR Fellowship events are much better, productwise.
  8. Checking on interest for the 2017 Fellowship event. Getting at least one kit.
  9. I've played a lot of LotR, most of it solo, so I have some experience with what you're considering. Solo play. Much like LotR, AHLCG plays well as a true solo game, but it it even better doing "two handed" solo. I think this is a bigger issue in LotR, but it's nice in AHLCG to have each investigator specialize in something and then compliment each other. True one handed solo works just fine, and can be a real challenge with an unbalanced Investigator. Overall, I give the edge in solo play to AHLCG. Replay value. As you noted, most of the replay value in LotR is in attempting to beat the scenario. Once beaten, I rarely return that scenario. I've never played through an entire cycle a second time, but I have cherry picked some of the scenarios for one off play. AHLCG gives more replay value right out of the gate. The initial play is really about reveling in the story as it is takes you along. Once you know some of what is coming, you can plan and replay for a better result. Note that normally, this isn't in the same campaign. You play it, and then live with the results. This adds more tension to each play and makes you want to return again and again to explore other paths or get other results. The system also seems to be better set up for a fresh experience in multiple plays by having numerous scenarios with random locations. I think the replay value for AHLCG is much higher than LotR. Deck building. The current state of the card pool is really limiting for AHLCG, but I don't think that's very different than LotR was when Khazad Dum was released. As stated before, each deluxe releases new Investigators that play vastly differently even in each of the classes. Survivor Wendy is way different than Ashcan, and both are way different than Yorrick. The recurring theme comes through, in this case discarding cards for effects and card recursion, but they have their own unique feel. Overall, I think AHLCG is a much better game than LotR was at the same stage of releases. FFG seems to have learned a great deal about story telling and co-op card games. The future is very bright for such a dark universe.

  15. It has not. We have room for eight and five preregistered. Send an email to me at jkayati@gmail.com to reserve a spot.
  16. First, I am not a store employee, so I don't have a definitive answer. I do know there is another event that day, so space is extremely limited. If there is space and if the store is fine with it, I am. But I understand that is a lot of "ifs".
  17. We had 11 players last night, so we're "Growing Strong"! November 2nd is the next Monday open play night. 5ish to 9ish.
  18. We will be back next Monday with extra decks for those who haven't bought in yet. Stop on by!
  19. Big thanks to all eight players who came out for our first night of playing AGOT. I know I had a lot of fun, and I hope everyone else did as well.
  20. Sorry about the delay in responding. Somehow I missed this message. Attendance has been very low, but it is still going on. Next night is this Wednesday, October 14th. Thursdays at The Soldiery has much better attendance.
