  1. The mention of Thorin Oakenshield, I had always wondered if we would get another version, your post reminded me that we only got him as part of the hobbit box and that he isn't alive in the time of our game
  2. Like the other 2 responses, it seems likely from many clues we will see another cycle when this one wraps, beyond that it is anyone's guess. If that holds true it could take another 2 years and another deluxe and 9 more adventure packs at the current rate, maybe longer. But it is anyone's guess
  3. Collateral damage could known you out in one go. Local trouble is another treachery in there that raises your threat (condition attachment)
  4. Of course I only speak from personal experience, and I should have noted that I feel they are very easy with the entire card pool. Progression is completely different than going through in other ways Everyone had different experiences though, that was just my 2 cents!
  5. I should also note I have not tried Siege or Attack, the last 2 gencon brutal quests
  6. Are you playing progression Style? Playing this quest with modern decks, they're like fine wine, they are just fun and can represent a challenge. Like wine, in the way they've aged If you play these progression style, or when they came out, they are absolutely brutal. If you are playing progression style and it found them easy, then I commend you on your play! But for me, into ithilien and Siege of caire andros are two of the most difficult quests I've ever played. Progression Style, ruins of belegost, dunland trap, to catch an orc, Battle of carn Dum, raid on the gray Havens, and the druedain forest are the only other quests to give me so much trouble, after a quick look through It is interesting to see, given the length and breadth of the game oh, what different people find difficult, with different people find not difficult, what people prefer, and what people don't like, in terms of quests. Everyone is unique in their tastes, and what they find challenging
  7. I would agree, there was a jump in dwarrodelf. It makes the first 2 cycles way too easy now, also I'm general since then there is a more gentle upward curve in difficulty. It is one of the reasons why playing progression style is best (without considering the current reprint dilemma)
  8. Nope, I'm just sharing with people who share my interests!
  9. It is the top game on the hotness on BGG, so I'm sure FFG will make some great sales and I'm sure it will make a lot of fans happy (including me hopefully!)
  10. I think it said Q2, so April, May, or June. FFG rarely gets more specific than that
  11. I think it was listed as preorder even when it had been released I thought this post meant it was available without the digital game so my heart sank when I saw it still was the bundle Thanks for the info though!
  12. I will do a drawing on Monday January 28th for the adventure pack:Fire in the Night! All you have to do is tell me what hero I thought was the best defender for Dagnir, he only has one weakness (one of the side quests) Listen to The Mouth of Sauron Podcast episode 21 Fire in the Night, and respond via my webpage www.themouthofsauron.com! Good luck and happy questing!
  13. Broken token makes inserts for an existing box made by hobby lobby, I had them screen printed!
  14. As the title suggests: (Couldnt get photos to load normally so I used links) Hope this inspires or provides a moment of entertainment
  15. Here are some links to pics of my setup. I couldn't get photos to load up on here. Dont know if this is a faux pas. General pics of the boxes https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs3300qlvwF/ https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs339u7lmsB/ https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs34AmelGB2/ Here are pics inside the boxes https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs3340-F-0E/ https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs34DdqFPW7/ Here are pics of my mat and clipboard https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs34JSiljsh/ https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs34LmqlCag/ https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs34GwEFFfG/ Hope you enjoy, or perhaps inspired
  16. Also important to note that the greater the card pool, and in some cases the newer the cards, the earlier quests become easier and easier. It isn't a constant increase in difficulty, for instance the first 2 cycles I think are very very easy with a full card pool, then things get progressively more difficult. That is over simplifying but you get the idea
  17. I agree with Bullroarer took, with one caveat. B allows you to do your campaign last so you have the most cards to pick your prime deck from. Also, it can be fiddly remembering things so it is nice to go through in one push. Either way go in order, the older quests are fun, but once you play newer quests they dont stand up as well. So going through in order allows you to get the most from the game. Then if you are a hardcore fan you can go through everything again in nightmare mode
  18. I haven't played it in a while. I found the best solution was a dwarf swarm deck with Dain. You have plenty of hands to run your ship, Erebor battle masters for combat, and questers. I used the tower to reduce archery, and I always used narylenya (spelling, the ship that reduces cost of allies). Usually I use erestor swarming decks for sailing but the ones I built didn't have enough combat for this quest. Whatever you do you need lots of allies. Getting the warships is awesome, although not always necessary. One reason this quest is so great is that you have to change your strategy as different things can happen. Good luck
  19. In the end of Lotr Frodo really steps back and really only speaks up to keep the hobbits from killing. Mostly he follows Gandalf's instructions, the fellowship, Gollum, only at times speaking with major authority or making major decisions. I'm not saying he doesnt show great courage, and perseverance, he does, and that's why spirit is his best match I think. I can see an argument for it. But I feel Frodo is a bad match for leadership. Personal preference. The other 3 definitely I think could be leadership, mostly from their actions after the ring is destroyed. I feel the only other sphere he fits would be Lore. Grandspleen I think the secrecy part of your card is genius.
  20. Dalestephenson had started a cool roster of characters (see his thread) and that spun into a different discussion that I felt should move to a different heading. The logic in a shire cycle being next is sound. When I considered the fact that the 2 heroes in a shire deluxe could be another Sam and another Frodo I started getting very excited. Frodo is an amazing hero but goes against the hobbit archetype so a new version would be awesome. Sam is amazing, but there are so many auto include spirit and lore cards, that it becomes a fight between sam and tactics, where tactics always wins because I wanted to try Cotton or new Bilbo. That brings up another point that tactics has the least auto include hobbit cards and 3 very excellent heroes. Dale is so strong because you can put any attachment or ally you want in the deck for one, so any good dale ally or item attachment goes in, and because of bonkers card draw. Hobbits really want access to lore and spirit, although a number of great cards exist in leadership. Wouldn't it be interesting if there was another hobbit archetype developed? I doubt that would happen since each faction has their own synergies and not usually multiple, although Gondor can go the lore trap route or the leadership soldier route.... And as mentioned in the other thread a thain of the shire card would be awesome
  21. I love the idea of the shire being the next setting but there are so many amazing hobbit cards that it feels tough to fit them all in one deck. It would probably stress me out to get a whole cycles worth on top of what we have. There are so many auto includes I have trouble cutting down to a reasonable deck. I do agree and have also observed that most of the small amount of non unique allies for hobbits are not strong. We could see a thain title attachment
