 Hi guys, I just got all my cards this week, here are my first games: 

Heroes:  Aragorn, Eowyn, Theodred
 
Game 1 Result:  Loss
 
Really had a tough time.  Ended up with five enemies engaged and no chance.
 
 
Game 2 Result:  Win!!  88
Final Threat Level:  34
Threat Cost of Each Dead Hero:  0
Damage Tokens on Remaining Heroes:  4
Victory Points Earned:  0
Number of Rounds Completed:  5
 
This was a crazy game and my first win.  I ended up with Beron's Path, and during the first staging the big spider came out!  A well timed Gandalf and an Aragorn buffed with attachments finally did him in. 
 
Game 3 Result:  Another win!  72
Final Threat Level:  32
Threat Cost of Each Dead Hero:  0
Damage Tokens on Remaining Heroes:  0
Victory Points Earned:  0
Number of Rounds Completed:  4
 
This game went a bit easier.  Got a sneak attack and Gandalf in the opening hand and quickly made it to the final stage, Dont leave the path.  At this point I had low threat and was able to build up enough to defeat him quickly, with another Gandalf to help.
 
 
I am pleased with finally winning, for an easy quest it was quite a fight at times!  I think I will do a bit of deck building and give this a go a few more times before moving on.

Thanks for reposting RMcM! I calculate your Weighted Result as 95. Let me know if I'm off somewhere.

It's me who is off. All this reposting made me put a mistake in this result. As you can see above, I haven't reduced the number of rounds in the third game. I am reposting it for a third time. I hope that I make it right at last. Sorry for the extra work, juicebox.

Alright, I'm going to start hammering through these Living Tournaments. For the first one, I figured I needed someone who could knock out as many enemies as I encountered, as well as ample threat reduction to keep me pushing forward aggressively. I think Spirit/Tactics might be my favorite combination. It's very aggressive.

Hi Knoedelmeister, Welcome!!!

I think your game 2 score may actually be 61. Am I off somewhere? Looks like you calculated it right for the Weighted Score though.

Glad you're joining the Living Tournaments!

Hi Tracker1, Welcome!

Can you clarify what is going on in Game 3? It looks like you've got your Game 3 Result posted in the Final Threat Level spot. Once you clarify, I can post your overall result.

Thanks!

Game 1 Result: 61
Final Threat Level: 31
Threat Cost of Each Dead Hero: 0
Damage Tokens on Remaining Heroes: 0
Victory Points Earned: 0
Number of Rounds Completed: 3 (Beorn Path)
Not so many things to say, a race to the final without many bumps. Frodo does not go to quest, and I finished 1st stage on 1st time, spending 2 rounds on last one.


Game 2 Result: 54
Final Threat Level: 30
Threat Cost of Each Dead Hero: 0
Damage Tokens on Remaining Heroes: 4 (3 on Glorfindel, 1 on Frodo)
Victory Points Earned: 0
Number of Rounds Completed: 2
Well, a Protector of Lorien on my 1st hand cause me to discard 4 cards and finish the 1st quest on 1st round. After that, one more to complete phase 2 and a Escort of Edoras help me to finish the 3rd quest on turn; a quick one and my best of every time.

Game 3 Result: 66
Final Threat Level: 33
Threat Cost of Each Dead Hero: 0
Damage Tokens on Remaining Heroes: 3 (1 on each)
Victory Points Earned: 0
Number of Rounds Completed: 3 (Beorn Path)
Well, here I have some bad cards; ungolianth spawn raised my threath by 4 after I cancel a Hummerhorn in combat. I also get Necromancer Reach on my last turn, with Test of Will on hand but using everything to put Gandalf in play. Even this way, a very good attempt that put me on top by now. Problably geeting 3 Beorn Path helped me a lot, as I am not sure how many turns I will need to kill the Spawn if she showed during the game.

 

And my decklist

3 Gandalf
3 Escort from Edoras
3 West Road Traveller
2 Eomund
3 The Riddermark's Finest
3 Westfold Horse-Breaker
2 Lorien Guide
1 Northern Tracker
3 Ancient Mathom
1 Unexpected Courage
2 A Test of Will
2 Hasty Stroke
3 Mustering The Rohirrim
2 Astonishing Speed
2 The Galadhrim's Greeting
1 Henamarth Riversong
2 Erebor Hammersmith
2 Gleowine
2 Miner of the Iron Hills
2 Fast Hitch
2 Protector of Lorien
2 Radagast's Cunning
2 Secret Paths

Marael, congrats to your amzing results. One question though: how did you get to a threat of 33 in your third game? If I unsterstood your game review correctly, Ungoliant's Spawn raised your threat by 4. The Hummerhorns raised it by 5 (I guess you used Frodo's ability, otherwise one of your heroes would have been toast). So, 28+4+5+3 rounds = 40. Most likely you did lower your threat by 5 with Gandalf, so that's 35.

Another question: why did you engage the Hummerhorns at all? Why didn't you just leave them in the staging area?

Maybe I was not so clear. Hummerhorn was draw as a shadow card, to put 1 wound on each hero (but was cancelled). After I cancel Hummerhorn, Spawn showed up as a shadow too, so raise my threath by 4. I also used Frodo to absorb 3 damage from Spiders, and after uses Gandalf it lowers to 33

So was 28 (initial) + 4 (Spawn) + 3 damage on Frodo + 3 rounds = 38. After Gandalf reducing by 5, 33

This is my first deck. **** Dol Guldur Orcs killed Eowyn on last game when she was the only one questing and I was still at 1B. Went down hill from there.

On the second game I had to sacrifice Eowyn and Theodred in the last round, in order to kill Ungoliant's spawn with gandalf and aragorn.

Second attempt gone much better. Same deck as before. On the third game the encounter deck revealed Ungoliant's Spawn on first round but I managed to keep my threat always under 32, got lucky drawing Don't Leave the Path as last stage, Sneaking in Gandalf and then playing him for 8 quick damage on it, and killed afterwards attacking it. Would've won also with the other quest but at least this way I had a better score since I didn't have to go further 1-2 rounds for the progress tokens.
