  1. It reads: Response: After attached hero participates in an attack that destroys an enemy, exhaust Rohan Warhorse to ready attached hero.

    This does not work when the hero attacks alone right? There always needs to be +1 character at least, correct? Can I cause Westfold Horse-breeder to participate in the attack although she has 0 attack?

  2. Out of curiosity, now that the core has a smaller box like Arkham LCG, do you think that LotR future expansions will also get flimsy cart-boxes like the latter? Those are way smaller than the current thick ones we get and open from the side only. I usually store an entire cycle in its corresponding deluxe box. It would be kinda annoying if FFG breaks the tradition here.. Unfortunately it seems that this will be the case, since every other LCG already works like that... 

  3. You can certainly find some of those if you dig around on the internet. But I feel you. I was looking for the Black Riders for ages until I managed to get one on an ebay auction for around 15 bucks above retail price.  Couldn't find it anywhere and it's the beginning of the saga campaign...

  4. So, according to the rules of reference book, there is an action window after the staging step. The rules also say that if a "when revealed" card comes out of the encounter deck you have to resolve it before drawing another one.  In that scenario, my question is the following: How can I play an action that for example cancels the "when revealed" effect of the first card without drawing a second one (in a two-player game) in order to complete the staging step (since the action window is after that step)? Can you in those cases prematurely play actions after the first card although the staging has not yet been completed (namely the second card has not been drawn and resolved)? 

  5. It's annoying to see a LOTR LCG article on the front page only to find out it's about the digital app. Obviously the two names are are not the same (LotR: The Card Game vs LotR: The Living Card Game). Aside from that the two games are distinctly different in how they play. I am also thinking that this confusion might discourage new players from discovering the paper game if they were first introduced to the digital one and didn't like it (see the mixed reviews on the steam page). 

    Would it be too much to create a distinct tag for the digital app? It's a completely different game.

    How did you block the hill troll out of curiosity?  And how did you kill him?  That is the part that makes that quest memorable to players, because having to face him first or second round was tough depending on what heroes and starting threat you have

    Also the enemy that deals damage to you from the staging area but you cannot engage him unless there are no enemies in the staging area.

  7. I got really excited with the discussion in the other thread about what future features/ideas we would like to see in the game. Someone mentioned a new campaign mode and after digging around I found this quote by Caleb:


    Campaign play has been very successful and well-received with the saga expansions. Lately I’ve been thinking quite a bit about how we might be able to do more with that idea.

    Source (at the bottom)

    How do you think this could be implemented? Maybe add a kit/box of sorts to the existing line-up that connects scenarios? Or build a new set of expansions that have a tighter narrative like the Arkham Horror LCG? Personally I would love something like that, especially if we can gain loot and other boons moving forward. Other ideas?

    A sure thing after what they had told to us, is that their are something under the hat about a campaign thing.

    I hope the campaign mechanic they are planning comes in one single box for the entire game and not one pack for each deluxe box and adventure pack. I hope that box also includes spare copies of the cards that don't come in copies of 3 in the core set. 

  9. I would like a deluxe expansion with the main focus being on Rohan. Voice of Isengard didn't really do it for me. Also, the existing Rohan decks feel kinda week. 

    Also an expansion in Mordor would be great. I wouldn't mind visiting already explored areas, like Gondor for example. Other timelines would also be cool as others suggested. 

    I just wish that they don't give up on the game now that Arkham Horror and Legend of the Five Rings seem to be the  hot LCGs in the hood.
