Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

Perhaps you are referring to the First Folk project, otherwise it can't have been much more than a year ago. People who signed up for the Necromancer project received an update email a few weeks ago. And yes, it will happen this very month ;-)

Re: Worlds 2018 in the Netherlands

Thanks for the photos Pawel! You might want to add a few 'winks' to your post (see below), not everybody understands your famous irony. Some might think we bullied Stevie but we like him! He actually locked himself out of the castle when going for a smoke after midnight. Kids, don't listen to your u...

Re: Worlds 2018 in the Netherlands

apologies Heiner, I've edited from "lost two games" to "won only 2 games", I hope that's better :wink: in answer to Gavin's questions: 1) the top 5 of Semi-finals played minion (3) and Fallen-wizard (2). More specifically, 2x Hoarmûrath, a Balrog, Gandalf and Radagast. However, I believe Pawel switc...

Re: Worlds 2018 in the Netherlands

Very nice playmats Eric :) Do you plan to organize new order or they are only only prizes? Well, if you had just won a unique prize through blood sweat and tears, how would you like it if others can simply purchase the same thing? ;-) So I wasn't planning on printing more of these. Of course, the i...

Re: Worlds 2018 in the Netherlands

to set the correct example, I (Eric) intend to play:

GO semi-final
Hamburger
Dreamcards (or GO finals)
Hero 1-deck

and some Arda/casual gaming of course.

nb. there IS a price for the best Arda gamer of the weekend (see up), but Arda results are NOT taken into account for the Overall Championship.

Re: Use of documents during official tournaments

a copy of Sun Tzu's The Art of War, perhaps? :-) Interesting question. Personally I see no problem with the items on your list, except for 1: if you start consulting a library while playing, an 80 (or 90) minute tournament game will only contain 2 turns. I don't think that knowing all the rules and ...

Re: Please give us your feedback - 2018 Annual Rules Vote

Can you be more specific on what potential bias this solution implied? Do you mean to say that the mere fact there is a 35B suggests that most people will (and therefore should) vote YES on 35A? Perhaps. Still, I have faith in the autonomous mind of the voters. And more importantly, would you not ag...

Re: We Have Come to Kill & Ringwraith Followers

Hmm, interesting points, pity I missed that discussion at the time, why did you not bring the suggested change to annotation #9 up for the ARV? Yes DU allows Dwar's company to move using region movement to any Dark-haven (within reach), the ICE rule did not foresee that. Nevertheless, it was a matte...

Pics of what exactly? The meccg meet-up in Paris? Not sure there are any, we were playing games most of the time :wink: Sorry, many of us are oldschool geezers who do not feel the need to record everything or express themselves on social media to validate their existence.

Re: When a company is at a site

Yep, that was my quote. I introduced the Farmer Maggot example because it was the only instance I could think of where a company moves during the site phase.

Re: Worlds 2018 in the Netherlands

Ah yes, I forgot, special rule, Fallen-Radagst decks are allowed, but only if you start the game with Galva and/or Arinmir :P Great, I intend to be there early friday, so it might be possible to pick you up. I was in Paris over the weekend with the meccg community there, and we kept 1 eye on the foo...

Re: Smoke Rings & Weigh All Things to a Nicety

That is true, afaik option A (can't use Smoke Rings to pull minion resources/characters) is the current practice during larger tournaments.
