What does it take to run a tournament?

Hello everyone, I've been speaking off and on with others about organizing and running a tournament. It could be called a West Coast US tournament, a US National Tournament, a North America Tournament. But I'd really like to know from players out there what it takes to run a good tournament? I need ...

Re: Arda Minion

I was reading the post that appeared years earlier in the same thread. If you still have put those cards out of the deck (mountain resource events, specific magic, coastal sea) may be have them in separate piles. For example, make an Eriador pile of Misty Mountain Deeps, the Shire MPs, and items sp...

Re: Worlds 2018 in the Netherlands

Many of the usual suspects then ...I wonder if their decks hold any surprises or if those are the usual suspects too?

Re: Arda Minion

That looks great! Do you have opportunities to get it on a table? I hope so. Looking forward to our next gathering here in Sacramento in November. We will have at least five players, but I'm hoping for more.

Re: Arda Minion

No resources or hazards are affected by this change. The only agent cards in the whole game cube are Minion Agent characters. One of the things that is so great about Arda is that there can be so many different versions of the deck out there and none is necessarily the best. I've played five differe...

Re: Arda Minion

Notes from Sept. 20th play session We played as though the word Agent was not on any minion card. And overall, we were quite happy with that decision. So I’ve adjusted the rules narrative accordingly. No need for Open to the Summons anymore. We also played with all of the unique dragon cards and al...

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...
