StrategiCon/May 2020 - No MECCG

Greetings All, After discussing with Gandalf Gene, we've decided not to host any MECCG events at StrategiCon at the LAX/Hilton in late May 2020. Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation here in California, it is very likely this StrategiCon will be canceled or postponed at the very least, and am hop...

Re: StrategiCon Feb 2020 - DC Playtest Frenzy Part 2

Greetings All, Vastor, am almost done building the Thorin Dwarf-Lord deck in cardnum, though I still have to learn how to actually play online. Now if I can just stop staring at and salivating over the card images from the upcoming expansions, lol...if I don't get a chance to catch you in cardnum be...

Re: StrategiCon Feb 2020 - DC Playtest Frenzy Part 2

Greetings All, Nicolai, thanks much for your feedback and clarification! Map to Mithril is indeed a worthy goal at Durin's Tower, and fetching Legendary Stair there is also very nice! I'm due to visit Gandalf Gene in the San Francisco Bay Area next week, so I'll PM you the Thorin Dwarf-Lord deck in ...

Re: StrategiCon Feb 2020 - DC Playtest Frenzy Part 2

Greetings Chris/All, It took me a week, but I finally finished tweaking (and prepping for the next StrategiCon in late May, assuming travel isn’t impacted) my DC decks per lessons learned from last weekend’s fun-filled play testing. I usually do this on the Monday after StrategiCon, but for the firs...

Re: StrategiCon Feb 2020 - DC Playtest Frenzy Part 2

Greetings Chris, Thanks for the pictures, as well as for the further clarification of the DC rules! So sad that the Arkenstone is now a hoard item (under "Major DCE"), but it is a righteous change that is a long time coming! It's probably for the best to keep it out of Thorin's sights anyway, as the...

...many thanks, Chris! The two pictures you took of Thorin's mini-saga would be highly entertaining!

Greetings Chris,

Thanks for letting us know, I figured they'd have a tough time finding a new venue.

StrategiCon/Feb 2020 - DC Playtest Frenzy, Part 1

I’d purchased the original First Folk and Durin’s Folk sets a few years ago and, at the time, I was eager to build a deck around one of my most favorite characters in Middle-Earth, Dain. I like tooling around in Dragon country and have a number of hero and minion decks geared to the area, so I looke...

Re: MECCG at StrategiCon, LAX/Hilton, 15-16 Feb 2020

This past weekend was personally one of the most fun MECCG weekends I’ve experienced for a long time. This was mostly because of the many opportunities to playtest my Dream Card (DC) decks, which I’ll cover in a separate write-up. But I had also decided to simplify the scheduling and divested myself...

Re: MECCG in Vegas (IV) - 25 January 2020

Greetings Chris, I'd like to say that we were taking it easy on Justin, since it was his first-ever deck, but that's not true--he knew what he was doing. We were passing hazards normally, but in that game I was playing hazards on Bruce and I wasn't really paying attention to what Justin was doing to...

Re: MECCG at StrategiCon, LAX/Hilton, 15-16 Feb 2020

Greetings Chris, Great to hear, looking forward to seeing you! I will have the following DC decks--I realized I wasn't playing Dream Cards as much as I was hoping because of my frustrations with the statistics and the shuffling of an 80-card deck, so all are back to my usual 30/30, and are DC legal ...

Greetings Goblin King, Awesome to hear from you, your Great Malevolence! :) Please feel free to bring Dark Arda if you have room in your baggage, and any Dream Card decks you may have available! I've been working on DC-fying some of my existing decks and skinnying my DC decks down to 30/30 (so they'...
