Re: Play Preferences - Hazard Players, Avatar Elimination, Sites, and MP Limit

First, you captured hazard play correctly. The first opponent gets the opportunity to play the full hazard count against the acting player. If it can't be done, it passes to the next person -1. Only the first hazard player draws cards related to the new site picked by the acting player. Everyone who...

Re: Arda Ten Years Later

ARDA has come a long way and I appreciate this topic. I've played four or five different versions in the last decade. I've played the original at Gencon. Let us not forget the original intention of this game was pretty different. It has a lot of cards in it with altered text in order to fix those ca...

Re: Arda Minion

Nice idea on the sideboard! We usually play with a non-competitive spirit and have a trading rule. The rule goes something like this: 1) No trading if it is your turn as the active resource player. 2) Trades are one for one. 3) You can trade resource or treasure cards. There are no hazard trades. Th...

Re: Arda Minion

Thanks for posting. I'm not aware of cvc minion cards. I would say take it out since cvc is almost always on. Have you had any luck getting this to a table? We've had 3 or 4 players. I'm hoping to bring it to the November convention in Sacramento and play it there. I look forward to reading your ver...

Re: DC Poll: which expansion is next?

Not at all sure what all of the expansions names stand for. But I voted for Nine for Mortal Men. It may not be what I think it is. I've always thought a good expansion would be what if one of the powerful rulers of men got The One. The avatars would be people like Denethor, King Brand, Theoden, Prin...

Re: MECCG at ConQuest Avalon, 9-11 November

I'll say yes to ordering a set and I think we can also order a set for Gene and Brian.

Re: Arda Minion

Thanks for your interest and your efforts! How are Palantirs used? It seems incredibly limiting to only allow their usage through one of the three Focus Palantir cards in the 600+ card play deck. Are there changes in the MELE rules that account for this that I'm not aware of? Otherwise, one variant ...

Re: ARDA Play through

Sounds like a great game! Thanks for the write up. We also had a 4 player Arda last Friday in San Diego. I think we were all within 4 points of each other at the Council. We had Lure of Power + Traitor trigger. And at one point we had 2 Scimitars, 4 other hazard permanent events, Will of Sauron, an...

Re: ARDA Play through

I have 28 points with a faction and kill points but no ally. I think my opponents totals at that point were 11, 20 and 21. The two closest have only Hail Mary plays to tie or beat me and they both failed. My only corruption check was a 3 for Cirden, which he passed.

Re: ARDA Play through

TURN 6: Here came the hardest choice. Do I head towards a dragon’s lair with only three unwounded characters? The Dragon Lore I fought so hard for is probably useless with such a small party. Because I have a copy of Dark Quarrels in my hand, I decided to head towards Mount Gundabad instead. Even mo...

Re: ARDA Play through

TURN 5: I decided to stick around The Windy Throne for one more turn believing that the payout of two big items at a dragon’s lair will be worth it. I don’t recall exactly what hazards were faced, other than a Nazgul. It might have been two of them. Saruman managed to get wounded but my third sage, ...

Re: ARDA Play through

TURN 4: Things start to turn south when my plan turned north! I considered hanging out for a turn and cleaning up the board of permanent hazards using the Osgiliath Palantir. But none of the options were really troubling me and there was only one Nazgul permanent event sitting out. So I decide to ju...

Re: ARDA Play through

TURN 3: This turn was a huge one for me! But it started off looking pretty difficult. I had an Align Palantir in my hand which I’d traded for at the beginning of the game. But I was worried about failing a corruption check with Cirden only having the support of one character I could bring in under h...
