  1. Good observation, Seastan. Hope you're right.
  2. The real question is... "for how long will they exist alongside one another?" As others have indicated, the names of the two games are nearly identical, and the new cycle looks like it is bringing the card game full circle to an appropriate conclusion. But truth be told, even though I'm not sure I'll be on board with LotR 2.0/digital, I'm okay with the physical card game ending after this coming cycle (especially if it ends on a high note). My wallet will thank me, and I'm not even halfway through playing all the non-NM quests progression style, even though I own them all.
  4. That's what I'm expecting as well.
  5. Crossing of Poros "on the boat" as of 12/1/17... now let's see how long it takes before it ships to retailers.
  6. Yes, but the character who is readying to attack a second time (e.g., via Unexpected Courage) cannot attack the same enemy twice in the same phase (i.e., the character would need to attack a different enemy during the second attack). I believe the exception to that rule is if an event like Quick Strike is played to trigger one of the attacks (don't have time to check the rulebook/FAQ... I'm sure someone else will correct me if I'm wrong). But a normal attack and an attack triggered by Quick Strike against the same foe would still need to be resolved separately.
  7. As a punishment against those who leaked it? Don't know that punishing the rest of the customers who had nothing to do with this is a particularly wise course of action. But perhaps they're just prepping us for a much slower release schedule going forward. Does anyone know if Caleb is working on other games, like Matt is on the Arkham Horror LCG?
  8. Originally scheduled to be a Q1 2017 release, and we're now in Q4. Ouch. And didn't Crossing of Poros accidentally get shipped to some retailers in Europe (instead of the Black Serpent) several months back, which suggests that all of these APs have been printed for quite some time now?
  9. Here are mine from several years back (using Core set only). Different decks posted in different posts in the same thread.
  10. Yep. 29 blue/spirit, 29 green/lore, 29 purple/leadership, 29 red/tactics, +1 Gandalf (neutral) for each sphere.
  11. Thanks for that, Emilius. Should've known to check the rules insert before posting. :-)
  12. Was playing a round of Deadmen's Dike (Lost Realm) when an interesting situation arose during set-up: as per the stage 1B instructions, I revealed two cards, the first of which was a Dead Lord, followed by The Power of Angmar (side quest), which surged a Heavy Curse. The text on Heavy Curse states: "When Revealed: Attach to the current quest. (Counts as a Condition attachment with the text: “When a player plays a card, increase its cost by 1 if there is a card that has the same title in its owner’s discard pile.”) As I am in Set-up and there are two quests in play, neither of which has yet been declared the current quest, what do I do with Heavy Curse? Attach it to the main quest? First player decides which quest to attach it to? Discard it because there is no "current quest"? Has anyone dealt with this before? Also, is it fair to assume that the effects of multiple copies in play of Heavy Curse stack (I got hit by that several times in previous games). Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  13. Most... impressive? You've got good video editing skills, too.
  14. No mention of anything related to LotR LCG during the 2017 FFG In-flight report.
  15. I don't think you should restrict yourself to the core set when playing Dol Guldur NM solo. The NM pack was released years later, when the designers could take a much broader player card pool into consideration... and any progression style NM deck should also keep that in mind.
