  1. Got the rebel troopers done tonight
  2. A game really shouldn't go that long without a rebel completing objectives, which is pretty much what would have to happen for it to reach that point.
  3. I'm all for this cuz this is a big deal... HOWEVER... this violates the spirit of the game in some ways. There's a rebel mission that makes imperial players put back cards into the deck, so having the memory element actually be a thing matters for those situations. Of course, on the flip side, a real galactic overlord would have a map with xs that are checked. lol
  4. Might have been a better way to do things. I did white base coat with the nuhn oil then white on top and the dark spots really didn't show through as much as I'd have liked.
  5. My last game I had it down to 12 by round 6.... Really gotta focus on objectives, hit and run kinda tactics. You're not going to be able to just amass loyalty and build up a fleet and hit the empire head on.
  6. Stormtroopers, though I added a little black line over their brows after the photos... And the rebel fleet, minus the fighters and with the snowspeeders. I'm not the best painter or anything but I couldn't deal with having grey stormtroopers... and, well, once you pop, you can't stop.
  7. Pretty late for this but--. I'm up in the east bay 40 min away. dunno if that'd work. Message me if so!
  8. I have an extra Gimli. I'm looking for the "Game Of Thrones" alt-art plot card, yes that's the name of the card, for AGOT 2.0 from Gencon if that's possible.
  9. I may have done too quick of a search, but I noticed there wasn't one, so I started one. If anyone's interested: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1673429079540107/
  10. Did you go with all the different types of tokens and did that seem worth it? They seem easy to distinguish. Seems like you'd just need one for resource (don't think I'd get the 3 resource one), one for damage marking and one for progress, right (as cool as all the various damage tokens look) There's no difference in different types of damage or anything overall is there? That was just their flavor addition?
  11. As I'm getting more into the game... I dislike cardboard. Maybe it's a bit esoteric but I like upgrading game components when I'm really into something as well. So I've been looking at Team Covenant's tokens and thinking about it. I see there's some acrylic ones on etsy that really don't feel thematic to me. Now my experience with wood tokens in the past is that they can really vary in quality. Does anyone have these? Are they nice? I dig their resource tokens, treachery tokens and especially the arrow damage tokens (those look sharp). Debating whether I should go with multiple types of damage tokens or stick with one for simplicity. Resource... I sort of want actual coins maybe rather than wood, not sure yet even though I like the design. And I'm not sure I love the design of the progress tokens. So I guess the question is -- what are you using for the above? Do you have the TC ones and how's the quality of the actual physical product?
  12. This was a fun interview. Wish I coulda made it to worlds! Sounds like the Fellowship events are doing well. I think everyone really loves these and definitely would support them continuing!
  13. I have an extra because my wife played also so we got 2 and really only need one. I am looking for either an alt-art Gimli or an AGOT 2.0 "A Game Of Thrones" promo which I believe was given out at Gencon and some more at Worlds. Is anyone up for a trade? Alternatively I guess I could sell it and buy said AGOT promo but would be easier to do a straight trade!
  14. Sneak Attack, Gandalf, Test of Will, Steward of Gondor... can you make a deck that works? Curious cuz I'd like to get a 3rd and 4th deck in there
  15. I've always played that it just whiffs because I think active location becomes more specific where the rules actually dictate that quest tokens go to active location when there is one for tokkens that go on the quest.
  16. Thanks Teamjimby, that's helpful to know. Can wait for that. Hopefully can get in time for christmas I'm finding that Return to Mirkwood actually is hard to find even by online retailers at retail cost, interestingly enough. You'd think there's Jackson Howards in there or something.
  17. So I've compiled a list of all of the Lord of the Rings sets out there, and there's 43 currently in 6 cycles, not counting the nightmare decks or any of that stuff. Just interested in player cards for the sake of this thought. I'm in the game about 6 months now, and am having trouble finding a couple packs from Shadows of Mirkwood or Dwarrowdelf, and FFG is out on their store here. I'm told they're out of print from LGS. Some of those cards seem a bit crucial to optimal deck construction. So the question is-- is there a rotation planned? I know this is much more of a casual game and we're talking one fellowship event a year + gencon for "competitive" play, but just wondering how hard I should pursue these older sets. The adventures are fun but missing some cards from Return to Mirkwood and Foundations of Stone especially seems to be tough.
  18. I'd also be interested in this and/or Aragorn. I have an alt art Legolas. I have anything Doomtown promo you could want. Also could trade some Netrunner promos.
  19. I'm not new-new since I've played for a little bit and have a few of the expansions, but it looks like most people and blogs tend to build decks with Lore/Leadership and Spirit/Tactics. My wife and I have played and we've flipped that so I have a Lore/Tactics deck and she's got a Spirit/Leadership deck. Hers really is the main quest engine and mine does some buffing and handles most of the attacks (I'd say overall hers handles both a little better). Are we making it harder on ourselves by not playing synergistic spheres? Or does it not really matter because we've got everything covered between the two decks? Probably will make it harder to solo or go to play with other people if that's the case. I'm also wondering if I'm going too heavy lore when I should be doing tactics. I'm running Legolas / Bilbo (card draw) / Denethor and while I'm very much enjoying the card draw from Bilbo, he feels a little useless other than that. I've got the hobbit expansions and the first couple of Shadows of Mirkwood packs so we don't have a huge card pool for player cards. I do run mostly lore cards though, but find myself never having enough money for most of my good tactics stuff.
  20. Sadly I don't play at Fremont although I do play with Kevin at work. I live in the Southbay so frequent trips up to Freemont in the week are a bit tricky. I hadn't realized there was such a great community there so I may try and head up more often. Cool, I'm up in danville so I don't get down tooooo offten but I'd be down to play occasionally! Especially at a fellowship event like this. Hope one is going on around us.
  21. You play at Fremont? Who is this? Have I met you? haha I'd be so down!
  22. We'll be running again tonight at 6:30 if anyone's in the area. Shop owners asked me to move things to Tuesdays. I'm going to be out at Comic-Con for the next bi-weekly bit so probably will run again on July 29th, check in with House of Games at the number above for details!
