    September Solo League -- Mirkwood Cycle

    Annoyed with Carrock for that 1 Valar token.... That was good fun. Need to find some time to do next month's challenge, as almost all of my weekends are booked up.

    Thoughts on the Limited Edition Starter

    It's definitely a missed opportunity that it wasn't slightly deeper so it could fit cards in it.

    Thoughts on the Limited Edition Starter

    Finally received my copy this evening. First impression is that it looks good, and the playmate is nicer than I was expecting (but then I didn't have any of the other mats to judge by). Placement of hit points and threat on the new design is confusing, though. Seems like sphere should be on the right, with threat and hit points above and below the stats.

    September Solo League -- Mirkwood Cycle

    I thought we couldn't do multiple attempts with 0 tokens?

    Weirdly, I've ordered several items direct from FFG, and this is the first one I've had a customs charge on.

    September Solo League -- Mirkwood Cycle

    Will the deck construction tiebreaker still include a single core, or just those packs?

    Thoughts on the Limited Edition Starter

    For some reason I got a £33 customs charge for this (and still don't actually have it)! On top of the high shipping cost, this becomes a ridiculously expensive purchase. My advice to anyone from the UK thinking about buying this: Don't, unless you have money to waste!

    September Solo League -- Mirkwood Cycle

    Submitted my results - Journey Down the Anduin - Won on first attempt Conflict at the Carrock - lost first attempt due to location that gets+1 threat for each troll in play causing my threat to raise high enough that I had to engage all the trolls at once rather than selectively picking them off. Second attempt with 1 Grace of the Valar token (used to add a resource to Eowyn for early Galadhrim's greeting) was successful, keeping threat low and building up during stage 1, then selectively engaging, forest-trapping and defeating the trolls. managed two sneak attacks Gandalf and Beorn in one combat phase, followed by Grim resolve to get a second use from each, finishing two trolls. Discarded Beorn to Eowyn and used stand and fight the next round to bring him back to finish the final Troll (A hill troll came out on the last round, so i needed to kill him off as well). Return to Mirkwood - Won on first attempt. Got lucky with the draws, so never encountered Attacop, and got the discard 10 from your deck during setup. 48 threat on the final round.

    Campaign Rules

    I'm planning on running another Saga campaign soon, and I was thinking about how to approach it regarding heroes. Does anyone know if you can add/remove players from a Saga campaign, like you can in Arkham? E.g. running two-handed with the fellowship, then after the split having a single hand for the Frodo portion of the quests? Does the "change heroes" text mean you could drop from two hands to one without penalty?

    That's pretty disappointing, given the price.

    Looks like my copy is being held at customs. I think an expensive purchase is about to get even more so... 😥

    Looking forward to receiving mine. Shipped just as I went on holiday, so hoping it's waiting for me when I get back.

    Noob Questions about Galadriel

    When I first saw Galadriel, I was dubious about a hero slot being used up without being able to contribute any stats. Then I played her. Seriously, she's AWESOME.

    Any interest in a solo league?

    Google docs seemed to work well for the last forum challenge.
  15. I play blind. Even on subsequent playthroughs I don't study the encounter deck. It's entirely possible that somewhere in all the quests there are encounter cards I've never seen, if they haven't come up during gameplay.
