Re: The Fall of Gondolin

I received the new book as an early birthday present and I finished it before my birthday. It presents two versions of the story and some fragments. I really love the very first version of the story. And then there are the Lee prints inside. :shock:
I really love this book.

Re: Arda Minion

Having 25 characters in the game who can only be brought into the game with Open to the Summons or by sending a Minion with high direct influence to their home site is super limiting and no fun. Don't forget about We Have Come to Kill. Moreover any character with enough DI (maybe extended through t...

Re: Arda Minion

A Ringwraith at a Minion Agent’s home site (or Bree) CANNOT recruit that Minion Agent during the Organization Phase. This a violation of the Ringwraith company rule. So it appears we are going into the realm of special rules for this version of the game. Having 25 characters in the game who can only...

Re: Lidless Eye questions

Here's another one, in the official game, would it be possible for a Ringwraith at a non-Darkhaven site to bring a Minion Agent into play as a minion? (Assuming the player has enough General Influence available to control the character and that the Ringwraith is at the Minion Agent's home site or at...

Re: Arda Minion

Now here come my Notes from the Labor Day weekend of playtesting The first thing we noticed is that drafting is much more difficult and important than in ARDA. This largely comes down to the large number of minion agents in the character pool and the difficulty of getting them into play. But it is a...

Re: Arda Minion

Here are notes from a weekend of extensive play testing in 3 sessions. First some notes from Tradewindsrider: "My initial impressions are quite favorable: - We played two games, one Friday night and an even longer one on Saturday night. Our group is generally less familiar with minions and the hazar...

Re: MECCG at Gateway 2018/LAX on Labor Day Weekend!

Great summary Tradewindrider. I'm going to carry it over to the Arda section for further discussion. Overall, it is always great to see people who still have passion for the game. If we could make everyone who came over during the weekend and said, "I had that game" or "I still have some of those ca...

Re: Lidless Eye questions

Thanks Mr. Took! Since I'm trying to make a variant follow as many of the actual rules, I was asking here. I'm glad that's the way trophies works. The other way is much too hard to explain to players. I think I figured out the mode card issue by reading the rules AND the cards more closely. The Blac...

Lidless Eye questions

Hello, We are play testing Dark Arda and it has already brought up quite a few rules questions that I've never had to deal with before. First, is it true that starting companies all start in Minas Morgul? Lidless Eye Companion says this, but I believe challenge decks let you play at Dol Goldur as we...

Re: MECCG at Gateway 2018/LAX on Labor Day Weekend!

I'm sure there will also be a set of the pre-constructed decks around so don't feel pressure to build your own deck CDavis7M. Also ARDA is a great way to learn the basic rules of the game. We have many new players sit down and play ARDA on the first day and then on the second day they are able to pi...

Re: Arda Minion

I've revised the rules and tips document based upon our first experience from play testing. DARK ARDA Overall Goals: There are two primary goals that have been achieved in the Hero version of the ARDA deck (see Gandalf Gene’s Arda on this forum) and I’m hoping to come close to matching them. These g...

Re: Arda Minion

Thanks for cleaning up the spreadsheet CCG Collector. That was a great help. Ha ha yeah the deck is not a cheap one. It helps that I started collecting in 1995 and I've had a complete players set since 2000. I use photo copied proxies of my cards for all rare cards and all Balrog cards. We gave the ...

Re: Arda Minion

Thanks Nicolai. I'm made the Khamul correction. As far as dream cards go, we might look at them in the future. I'm absolutely looking forward to owning my set.
