    Just remembered we are probably getting a Thorongil card this cycle...

    To Tracker's comment I would add that you need at least one Spirit hero so you have access to Galadhrim's Geeting and preferably make it a Noldor so you can use Elrond's Council.  (Of course this screams Spirifindel.)  For further abuse add a few copies of Map of Earnil.  You can end the game with single digit threat.

    Well the first thing I checked was whether or not my One Ring worked and it didn’t.  So disappointed.  But maybe it only works in Middle Earth, so I booked my tickets to New Zealand.

    Spirit Aragorn and Lore Arwen heroes that play nice together.
    Unique Noldor that heals.  I want one that can make an all Noldor Fellowship.  (Not Ioreth.)
    For the last two, make Dunedain good solo.  (Without using Damrod.)

    Bullroarer Took got a reaction from Zura in New Dunedain cards... suck!!!   
    Four years later and the Dunedain are still scattered, divided and leaderless.  I thought they would get there but I was clearly wrong.  Yes, they can be good multi-player decks, but they are really weak in solo.
    Edit: sp.

    Just for grins here are my takes:
    1.  This is the hardest.  Some have argued that this will be another two faced card like gollum, perhaps Gandalf or Saruman, yet the line "both in play at the same time"  seems to speak to me of a new version of the twins.  I wouldn't consider the bottom face in play, but maybe the text says it is.
    2.  Lothiriel, daughter of Prince Imrahil and wife of Eomer.  Spirit ally/hero that provides a discount for expensive allies.
    3.  Wilyador ally.  Eagles decks rejoice.
    4.  Grey Company contract that allows four heroes but no allies.  It might also require one of them to be Aragorn.  Alternatively it could be spirit Aragorn who has no threat cost and allows you to play four heroes but no allies.
    5.  Thorin Stonehelm.
    6.  Tom Bombadil.
    7.  Gildor Inglorian.
    8.  Army of the Dead ally.

    I would have said it much worse than than this.
    In the early days Spirit got questing, cancellation, recursion and threat reduction.  It also got the ability to attack the staging area without engaging the enemy.  So it could handle all phases of the game very well.
    Tactics got combat, but not terribly better than the other spheres.  It did get the ability to generate progress through combat, but if you say that only about one third of the encounter deck is enemies then it can only generate progress one third of the time.  Meanwhile its threat is spiraling because it can’t quest.

    I have now watched the video and put myself in the “cautiously optimistic “ category.  Caleb has talked about bringing more of a story telling or saga style element into the game and maybe that’s what’s being envisioned here.
    Regarding the 2.0 vs 1b argument, put me firmly in the 1b category.  I’m not saying the game is perfect, but I don’t believe the game’s problems are structural.  Yes, Spirit and Lore got too much of the color pie and Tactics and Leadership didn’t get enough, but I don’t believe that can’t be handled with errata or future cards.  I do not want to go back to the very limited card pool we had for so many years.  Furthermore, if there was a complete reboot people would be wanting the sagas all over and I don’t think the designers really want to go back there again.

    I'm glad they answered the question and hat's off even though it wasn't necessarily what I wanted to hear.  If the next iteration is first or second age though that would be nice.

    It was on Twitter that FFG first told us that they had a bunch of reprints coming, so that indicates to me that they are branching out their social media.  Obviously that poem is way to long to tweet, but it also represents a LOT of work from someone.  Just feels like an inside job to me.

    Just for grins here are my takes:
    1.  This is the hardest.  Some have argued that this will be another two faced card like gollum, perhaps Gandalf or Saruman, yet the line "both in play at the same time"  seems to speak to me of a new version of the twins.  I wouldn't consider the bottom face in play, but maybe the text says it is.
