  1. I did see on a Facebook group, someone had organised their tiles into pockets in a ring-binder. Each "page" was a 2-pocket sleeve, which fit the 2x1 and 2x2 tiles nicely, with the 2x3 tiles taking up a "page" on their own. You can easily see both sides, and flip through them. Not sure how they were sorted (I guess by expansion then alphabetically), but you could print out this reference index and stick it in the front, and sort accordingly. Not sure I can link to it as it was posted to a closed group, but it looked quite easy to search through.
  2. Khazad-Dum was reprinted (and available in the UK) earlier this year, so I would guess it's low down on the reprint priority list.
  3. Yep, I spotted that just after I clicked "Submit Reply". That said, if all you want is the text... just open up the PDF, "Select All", then copy-and-paste it into a text editor. All the text is there. I'm sure with one of the many free PDF editors available you can create a printable copy should you need it.
  4. Ignore me... just seen the second page with the bit that's blacked out. Apologies.
  5. Here in the UK you can expect APs and Deluxe boxes to be in the UK a few weeks after the US - note that in some cases they don't seem to make it to the UK at all. If there's a specific AP or Deluxe you're after, your best bet is to sign up for notifications from your shop of choice (BG Extras do a great job of getting stock, but there are plenty of other good sites). You can also do regular searches on a bunch of shops - a lot are listed in this thread. Sometimes things you're after just "appear" - like someone finds a spare crate in the back of a stock room.
  6. What Gamer said, but for reference... from the rules reference: If an investigator in a monster’s space attempts to move out of the monster’s space voluntarily or perform any action other than the attack action or move action, that investigator must resolve an evade check against the monster in his space. The rules don't state that the attack has to be against the monster in your space, so no evade check.
  7. I guess this is actually good news... there are usually rumours that the game is dead (especially with the extended period before the latest expansion), but if it was they probably wouldn't put extra effort into the minis.
  8. Wasn't sure where to react to that as "confused" or "sad"...
  9. I've looked at Reaper minis before - not actually got around to buying any yet, but they have some nice Cthulhu stuff in their Bones range.
  10. Just noticed that Black Riders and Dwarrowdelf are currently On The Boat. Best start hoarding cash in the hope they make it to the UK.
  11. Chaos cards tend to send stock notifications when they haven't had stock for a long time. Certainly in my case none of the notifications were for anything they had in stock. That said... Black Riders would sell out quickly, so who knows. Update - just seen that a bunch of stuff has changed state to On The Boat, including Black Riders, so that may explain the notifications.
  12. I'd guess that they wouldn't want a discord invite posted on a public forum, as that's a nice way for spambots to get in. You may get one via PM instead. Thought I'd mention that in case anyone wonders. Edit: have a look at the Cardboard Of The Rings website.
  13. There comes a point with a game like this where most of the questions have been asked already. Rules query? Already answered. Weird card interaction you've spotted? Someone already spotted it. Question about an overpowered card? Probably already errata'd. When a new announcement is made, then there's more discussion. Until then, many of us just come here for the Lembas and Ent-draught.
  14. When I checked, their stock levels seem a bit screwy... the main page suggests it's in stock, but when you go to the individual page - out of stock. It's a little inconsistent, so maybe a direct search is a better option, if you can filter the results. That was certainly the case with On The Doorstep.
  15. Just thought I'd add another alternative link - Thirsty Meeples have an LOTR section: https://thirstymeeples.co.uk/pages/thelordoftheringscardgame
  16. From the FAQ, 1.36... Triggered abilities are abilities on cards that have a bold trigger word such as Action or Response. These abilities are only applied when they are triggered. Passive abilities are abilities on cards that have an ongoing effect without a bold trigger word. Because passive abilities don't have a trigger they are always active and cannot be "triggered". This implies that the ability is not optional, as there is no way to trigger it. So each resource phase you must draw 3 additional cards, and discard your hand at the end of each round. If it was optional it would likely be worded as "Resource Action: draw 3 additional cards in the resource phase and discard your hand at the end of the round. "
  17. His response only triggers when an enemy goes from being not engaged to engaged, so it'll only kick in for that first round. After that, the enemy is already engaged so the response doesn't happen. If however you used a card effect to un-engage the enemy (A Light In The Dark, for example), then when you engage the enemy a second time, the response would kick in.
  18. Khazad Dum is available @ Board Game Extras, for those who are hunting for the early packs and a bunch of dwarves.
  19. Sadly, they're in Canada and don't ship outside of Canada or North America
  20. For me it's a rhetorical question, as I play solo and don't have The Lost Realm (tho' it's tempting to try sneaking it past the wife)... I was just curious on the wording being all players, rather than just those that searched their decks.
  21. As Amicus states, it's a response so it's optional... but if one player takes advantage of the response, then all players have to shuffle, is how it reads to me.
  22. Good stuff, I'm glad it's in stock somewhere - just a shame they don't deliver to other landmasses. But it gives me hope that it may suddenly appear closer to the UK. I think it's one of those ones that people find in the back of a stock room every-so-often.
  23. I was just looking through the cards that come in The Lost Realm, and noticed an oddity in the wording of Gather Information, a side-quest: Am I correct in thinking that in a multi-player game if any player decides to search his deck for 1 card, all players must shuffle their decks? That's how I read the wording, and I can think of a scenario where a player may not want to perform the search, but shuffling their deck would be annoying... Player A uses the action of Gildor Inglorian or Gandalf's Search to arrange next 3 or X cards that they'll get from their deck... "Hooray!" they think. "On the next three or X card draws I will get exactly what I want when I want it. Look at me, aren't I clever." Player B, on successfully completing the Gather Information side-quest, decides they want the ever-important Brok Ironfist from his deck, so he decides to search for Brok, add him to his hand, and shuffle his deck. Player A glares at Player B, shuffles his deck in anger, bending some of his cards ("Why did I not sleeve?!?" he will later cry). Or am I mis-reading the card?
  24. I'd make a change to one of those links: Magic Madhouse - https://www.magicmadhouse.co.uk/search/tabletop-games-c1302/card-games-c1664/lord-of-the-rings - this one will include only card games. I'd also add... https://www.eclecticgames.co.uk/card-dice-games-living-card-games-lord-of-the-rings-lcg.irc https://rulesofplay.co.uk/search?q=lord+of+the+rings https://www.boardgameguru.co.uk/index.asp?function=SEARCH&Search=Lord of the Rings http://www.patriotgames.ltd.uk/category/23/437/Lord-of-the-Rings-LCG/ https://www.bookdepository.com/search?searchTerm=lord+of+the+rings+lcg
  25. Personally I think it would take away some of the fun of playing the game, and if I were to play cooperatively I wouldn't like it if someone did that. You're not supposed to know what's coming next unless you use a card effect to look at the deck, but even with just different coloured sleeves you would know that the next card is a Tactics card, so you can plan your resources in advance. It would also affect shuffling. When you shuffle the deck you're supposed to randomise the card draw, but you could easily shuffle so that "Oh, surprise, I've managed to put most of the Tactics cards near the top, and I just happen to have a load of Tactics resources". While it's certainly your choice, my opinion is that... there are official ways to make the game easier.
