  1. If you don't mind to have the story spoiled (specially in later cycles, that are tied between them), you can do it... Don't remember a single scenario that couldn't be beaten without a specific Adventure Pack (at least until the Voice of Isengard cycle - haven't played the others yet, but still collecting them) Sagas Expansions (Hobbit and LotR) are different because they are built to be played as a campaign... CJMatos
  2. Not really... The Road Darkens is the second "chapter" of the Lord of the Rings Saga, which usually is best played as a campaign mode... And you only mention finding the 3rd one (Treason of Saruman)... I'd go Hobbit and Sands of Harad...
  3. I believe there isn't... Maybe @danpoage can make a search with that parameters.
  4. I'd say it is only the bolded: "When Revealed: (...)" effect... The card was revealed as a shadow card so the time to trigger Surge and Doomed never happened, nor does the shadow effect says to treat the card as if it was revealed from encounter deck.
  5. @Jamie of Gilead I'm from Portugal but used to purchase all my packs from Book Depository but as far as i could see in a quick search they don't have anything in stock and seems they stopped after 5th cycle (Lost Realm/Angmar Awakened). Still sometimes while searching for other products, i seem to find that they have some in stock. It's an UK based site and never had any problem with their orders. CJMatos
  6. Don't see those cards in CGDB... Can someone point me to them?
  7. Welcome back richsabre... Glad to see you back to LotR... Book Depository usually has some packs stored... Dunno how it is now, since i've lost track of my account there and had all in the wishlist...
  8. @willbrooks1989 nothing in the rules from the LotR campaign says you can't use cards from the later Saga boxes in the first one, so i'd say to follow the general rule that you can use them. Although temtically using Gandalf in escaping from the Shire doesn't makes sense, but it is your play.
  9. I'd say you can only activate the response for each card that enters play. Meaning, the already in play Knight of Minas Tirith cannot use his response... From Rules Reference: Self-referential Abilities Self-referential abilities refer only to the card on which the ability is located, and not to other copies of that card. From FAQ: (1.31) Self-referential effects If a card refers to its own title in its text it should be read as referring only to that copy of the card. A card that refers to other copies of itself will use the language “any copy of...” or “another copy of...” or “a card with the title...”
  10. Even on easy mode, some quests are pretty difficult... Escape from Dolg Guldur comes to my mind...
  11. Thanks for correcting my mistake... It is soo long since i played with Legolas that I missread his ability
  12. No. But i seem to detect some confusing there. When you complete a stage of a quest, you imediatly reveal the next one. As for trave: Travel is always optional. Either you choose to travel or not and explore the locations in the stagging area with cards like Asfaloth, Northern Tracker or Legolas You only do it if you want, despite recomended due to removing threat from stagging area.
  13. This is shown in the LotR Card Game LCG (the physical one) section of the products in FFG site... EDIT: And that is the only add in the rules section of the product, that still only has the rules until Mumakil
  14. From FAQ: (1.35) “Enters the staging area” Enters the staging area is a term that applies to a card (enemy, location, objective, etc) that is placed in the staging area. This term applies whether the card in question has been revealed from the encounter deck, placed in the staging area from out of play, returned from the discard pile or from engaged with a player, or by other means. From FAQ page 14: Q: What is the difference between “adding” a card to the staging area versus “placing” a card in the staging area? A: There is no difference between “adding” a card to the staging area versus “placing” a card in the staging area. These words are used interchangeably and mean the same thing in all instances. With these in mind, i would say that entering staging area and adding to stagging area is the same and, thus, any effect that trigger by entering the staging area would trigger despite the place where the card came from (engagement, discard, encounter deck, victory pile, etc). On the other hand, an effect that needs the card to be revealed only occurs if the card comes from encounter deck or if the effect that places that card in staging area specifically uses the word "reveal" (1.45) “Reveal” vs “Reveal and add” Any time encounter cards are “revealed” from the encounter deck, the players should follow the rules for staging as explained on page 14 of the rulebook and rule (1.39) of this document. If a card effect uses the phase “Reveal and add to the staging area”, it means the same as simply using the word “reveal”, and the above steps should still be followed (i.e. treachery cards should still be discarded after resolving its effects, unless otherwise indicated by the card’s text).
