    Some people make a fake Facebook account just for participating in gaming groups like this. That's always an option - you don't need to go all in. Or you could just show up on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays and skip Facebook altogether.

    Definitely check out that Facebook group. We have a standing game night on the 1st and 3rd Saturday at 6 pm at Uptown Espresso and Gameporium in West Seattle (3845 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106). We typically have 3-6 people for a typical game night and play mostly 3-4 player games. The Fellowship Events often attract around 20 people. If you're looking to play on weeknights, you could hit up that group and see if anyone is interested/available.

    Next deluxe boxes

    It hasn't been announced yet. I don't think there is a clear rhyme or reason to their sequence. Otherwise Bara or Targ would have come before Tyrell and Martell.

    Heroes you haven’t tried yet

    He is a cool idea and I really should try him. I think I focus too much on his mulligan ability and underestimate the potential of his redraw ability.

    Wow, that is a long list! Time to start experimenting more!

    Heroes you haven’t tried yet

    My list of never-played heroes - Note that I almost never play solo: Dori - He looks bad and I rarely play any dwarves besides Gimli and Bifur Eomer (Le) - His ability is very meh, and staging area attacks are less effective in multiplayer games. Fastred - Similar to Eomer. If I'm going to do staging area attacks in solo, I prefer to never engage the enemies. Galdor of the Havens - His effect isn't very exciting, and I'd almost always rather play Erestor. Kahliel - I kept waiting for more Harad support, but it never really got fleshed out. Na'asiyah - She's a hero you need to build around, but it's a very straightforward and boring build. Quickbeam - New, but also doesn't look very good. I doubt I will try him. Thurindir - I like the idea of him, but in multiplayer we almost never want to devote a turn to side quests. Other heroes that I've rarely played: Gandalf, Boromir (T), Caldara, Dain, Hirluin - Too powerful for my taste. Don't want to be "the Gandalf guy" at the 4 player table. Bard, Brand, Lanwyn - Their lack of weapons makes me always go with Legolas or Haldir instead. The new cycle should fix this problem. Bilbo, Fatty, Dwalin, Oin, Pippin (S), Aragorn (Le) - Any deck that these would fit into, there is usually another hero with the same traits (or same name) that would be a better fit. Treebeard, Halbarad - Any deck that these would fit into, the ally is usually better.

    New Player

    That's one option. Have you played the game yet? Do you own anything yet? If not, you should get in touch with Dustan and let him make some decks and walk you through some practice games.

    Ok, cool. The main guy in the Houston area is Dustan Archer. Find him on Facebook and he can connect you with other players. If you want to be competitive and play at tournaments, you will need to buy all of the expansions. I was just suggesting that you start with the core sets to make sure you like the game. If you already know that you like it and you want to be competitive, you should buy a complete set from someone else that is quitting the game. There are always people coming and going and selling their collections. You should be able to get it for less than 50% of MSRP.

    The best way is probably to get in touch with someone nearby that has the game. Where are you located? There is also a big Facebook group that is the main gathering of players, so you could join that and try to find people to play with. Otherwise, pick up a core set and try some of the starter decks. Then if you like it, get 2 more core sets and try building a deck or two.

    "An ally that is not in play"

    It doesn't say unique ally, so I believe it would not allow 2 copies of Master of the Forge.

    Oath of Eorl

    This ruling was in respect to enemies engaged with each player, but I think it applies here. Either way, it wouldn't hurt to get an official answer.

    Topmost Chamber

    I think that's right? I wish there was something official for things like this.

    Where's the hero of the year?

    Only 4? We got 2 from the saga box. Does that mean there were only 2 APs this year (not counting Folco)?

    Topmost Chamber

    I could get on board with that interpretation. If that's the case, then that would answer the Topmost Chamber situation in the OP (i.e., that you don't place progress on the next stage) since it requires the location to leave play.

    Topmost Chamber

    But that quote is contradictory to other rulings. It's like they went to a core set ruling for this particular example, ignoring the subsequent FAQ entries that say otherwise (i.e., quest advanced before active location explored).
