  1. I've just finished my 3x3 pages and am really pleased. I dont think deck building will be as easy as it has been with all cards loose, BUT the number of cards I didn't realise I had that I can now see clearly is great so while slower, deck building should be better quality and more fun. Very happy I've done this.

    Seastan Suggestion

    Thanks for the thoughts I know at least Dol Guldur had lots of resets due to time constraints so the 54 would likely be a lot less if all the games had been played out. We all have our different views but for me personally the one deck is a success considering the difficulty of those two quests. Cheers

    Seastan Suggestion

    Thats a good question. I think because this is a question of "is it possible" I would say one single beat of the quest would establish this. Its not really a question of consistently beating a quest with any regularity, more a case of "can it be done?" so in a similar vane to Seastan's one-deck experiment I think one single beat of a quest with a minimum-purchase deck would tick-the-box. In theory there must be people out there who but a core set, then like the look of a nice adventure pack so buy it, then realise they need the accompanying deluxe so buy that, and then play the game. So my curiosity was wondering are any of those particular people (customers) fighting a losing battle so-to-speak. Accepting some will be harder than others (Eg: Rouxxor's comments regarding Mount Doom) it would still be quite nice for customers if all quests were possible on minimum-purchase even if some ridiculously hard.

    Seastan Suggestion

    Well this can go for anyone but I've seen Seastan say this is his main hobby, his huge task of the-one-deck is done and so I thought why not suggest. Is every quest in the game beatable with the minimum of purchase cards to enable the scenario? Meaning 1 core plus the quest pack and any associated deluxe. Eg: Say stewards fear. Can you build a deck to beat it with just 1xCore+heirs of numenor+ stewards fear Etc Very curious to see if it's doable big big undertaking though

    The Shadow Rune Project

    I love the whole idea of this. Can I Please ask, looking on the valkyrie website it needs the play store app, how does this affect things if I have the steam version already installed? Is it fully in dependant or will it clash?

    The newbies first experience

    Yay I had a great game today after big break. I went to my box and found my desk was in bits following previous redesign thoughts, so looked at my last bits here and designed a new deck on my notes. Double tactics with single spirit. Gimli, Legolas and Glorfindel (s) Spirit I included threat reduction, cancellations, light of valinor, unexpected courage and arwen undomiel. Tactics I went combat orientated. Plus gandalf etc It went really well. First draw I had valinor and bilbos ring. Great. Very lucky start. Early on I got citadel plate onto gimli, wow he soaked poison. Got stuck when the great Web location meant we couldn't quest to remove location lock but arwen was drawn and played and we slowly removed it as she tipped the balance. That was a tough point. Unexpected courage went on gimli and things went good then. From then on it was mainly combat and questing Managed to quest through stage 3 and 4 to a win. Stage 3 was the most difficult. At first because of unconsciousness but then later because even with all characters conscious, the Web location plus lots of poison meant I couldn't quest enough to clear the location (until arwen) so it was worrying at that point. But it came good. Great game and close win. Gandalf never appeared (slacker). Defender of Ramas was a trooper, Arwen saved my bacon, citadel plate on gimli was awesome. Great game, enjoyed. I think I will use this deck a few times on this scenario for fun now before moving on to the next scenario. A triumphant return

    The One Deck

    Okay. Wow! Congratulations! I've not read your deck itself Seastan because I don't want the ideas to affect my own deck. However I did read the success rate. Wow. To be able to design a deck to beat ALL scenarios, not just most, is a truly fantastic feat. Then for them to be nightmare scenarios oh my goodness what a massive achievement.....but...... then to beat almost all of them in 2 tries, WOW! To me personally the scope of this achievement is huge. Truly well done!!!! I am so impressed.
  13. Any info yet on the woodland one? Epic mode or not?
  14. I'm loving the idea. Like a choose your own adventure book LotR-LCG style. Glad also that the completionist in me won't buy 3 copies for epic mode haha. Really liking this idea.

    Descent speculation

    Wow, do we know this? I thought the last announcement was before the trials dlc thus the trials may have been it. Did I miss another announcement? Hope so.
