792-play Theoden

Post by dirhaval » Sat Nov 11, 2017 10:47 pm

OVERVIEW
This player had partial success. The shining moment was Eowyn discarding during CvCC The
Witch-king with Mount Slain. The body check was six. Invading Mordor was a failure. The death
of Theodred on Turn 2 hurt. Many deaths weaken counterattack of minions in or near Rohan.
Eowyn was killed by an agent. 29 MPs were earned along with two Man factions. There were
several failed site phases to play major items due to tapped or wounded heroes. Four CvCC were
initiated and two defended. There were about 47 moving companies. The avatar was busy
moving 17x while facing 9 strikes.
+
MAJOR NEWS
Eowyn went on a hunt in the last four turns. She helped by discarding an untapped The
Witchking, but she was killed by an agent on Turn 23. Two man factions were played. Three
horse allies were killed. Ten characters were killed. Tower Raided was not played. All six major
items were played by Turn 18. Usually, the item was kept in hand for three turns. Two game
points were earned (Fireworks x2). This player was beaten with 26 creatures from 95 hazards,
but 21 were agent actions. Two Men CvCC a lone Uvatha the Ringwraith in Nuriag with Eowyn
and Helm of Her Secrecy in hand. Those two are played, but the Ringwraith taps to use Ruse.
+
The avatar was in play for 24 turns: 8 taps to accessed sideboard, x3 play item, 2x play factions,
X1 support, 10 faced strikes, x1 for resource, x1 for Fireworks. The avatar moved 9x and
wounded once.

A pile of 27 creatures attacked with 96 total hazards with 21 as agent actions against Theoden
King. Only five turns were easy, no creatures, for this player. Dwar player dumped 34 hazards

creatures. Breakdown: Elf/Man/Dunadan/Dwarf=5, Undead=3, Dragon/Drake=2, Wose=3,
Pukel-men=3, Animals=5, orc/troll=1, slayer=1, wolf/spider=4. Almost Feel You Like a Forest
