    Hope you enjoy the game! Maybe check out Beorn's Path if you haven't. It has many good tips for new players. I imagine the card pool can be a bit overwhelming at this point.

    My friends and I bought one core set each and have played together for years. I have only one copy of every pack, and I only recently caved in and bought a second core set. There are some good cards in the core set that you only get 1 or 2 of, so that's a reason for many to get two. But if you're just 1-2 players, one core set is enough.

    All the expansions contain three of every player card except heroes, so no need for multiples.
     
    The core set has only doubles and singles of a few cards. Multiple core sets are not necessary, but many players eventually go for a second one, since it also enables 3-4 players and gives extra tokens.

    Get Star Wars. It's amazing fun. License got renewed last fall and new movies, books and TV episodes injects it with so much more content.

    Go with LotR. It's incredibly good as game, can be played on many levels and with so many combos (starting from going solo to assign yourself more than one deck at the same time) and such a great flavor that, possibly, it's the best LCG around, in terms of "narrative feeling". It's not that much to recover, tho, especially when compared to Invasion, that you had completed; consider they keep on reprinting all the APs on a regular basis, they have the Saga series running that possibly will last for another two years (or more) and that the pace at which expansions reach the market is actually slower than one pack / month (since in some months they release only nightmare decks), you can easily recover

    Thanks folks for great answers.
    I already have a big collection of warcraft cards and recently warhammer invasion. I love the lotr setting and my sudden realisation that this has solo play has really sold it to me.
    Its off to ebay to see if there are any bulk collections before I order a core set new

    Understood and agreed.
    Cant see ffg resurecting now. If they did i think it would be a reboot, but with the games workshop upcoming changes to the warhammer world i do doubt it.
     
    Rules questions do come up at times.
    Be nice to see interesting battle reports of games, or discussion on the fan expansion.
    Thanks for posting you guys, keeps interest flowing.

    Ah thank you so much. So far I have warpstone excavation, judgement of verena, contested village and blood dragon knight.
     
    Thanks for the reply.
     
    Can I also say thanks to you Mallumo for your efforts in keeping the online presence of the game alive. The forum is pretty quiet (not sure if there is a more active one somewhere?) But you always seem to still be here reading posts and answering questions. Add to that your podcasts (im yet to listen) and the fan expansion (which i think you are involved with) makes for awesome efforts in keeping WI alive on the web.
    I imagine WI will always be played offline by fans but wide popularity is so closely linked with an online presence that its great you keep this alive so well (i wish somebody was also doing it with the warcraft tcg)
    Thanks so much Mallumo (and also other fans still here reading this!)

    You're allowed to have three copies of a card in your deck. The core set, Assault on Ulthuan, and the first battlepacks cycle do NOT contain three copies of every card, everything else does.
     
    The answers to your other questions depend. If you want to be able to build every possible deck in a way that it works well, especially if we're talking highly competitive decks, you'll need to buy multiples of the above to have three copies of every card. If you don't, your options will be somewhat limited, but still plentiful. Same goes for the friend, if you both want to be able to play the same faction at the same time, say an Orcs vs Orcs match, you'll need multiple copies of various expansions if you both want to have access to all the cards. If you're fine with playing different factions against each other or if the decks don't need to be highly competitive, you don't.
     
    My advice would be to get one core set and one Assault on Ulthuan first to see if you like the basic mechanics of the game (keeping in mind that it of course gets much deeper with a bigger card pool). Then I'd get the other deluxe expansions, then packs from everything but the first cycle, cause your net gain from those will be much higher than from additional copies of core and Ulthuan, or from first cycle packs.

    Thanks ever so much guys thats all great info and advice. 
     
    Never thought of trying the dice app great idea. The pdfs are a good idea too as i read a lot on kindle. 
     
    Although im not into buying duplicate stuff, i am a little bit of a completist so can see myself looking into the pod cards even if playing componentless. 
     
    Thanks very much again, the ffg range can be confusing for a newbie so i appreciate your advice. Cheers. 
     
    Now lets get suited up for some forthcoming adventure
