The back of the manual includes a list of "historic" cards from the core set to use with this particular expansion, but thematically many seem inappropriate to me (Gondorian spearmen, etc.). So, I’ve listed the cards from core + expansions that I think fit not only the timeframe, but the theme of The Hobbit - a small group of dwarven adventurers (plus one hobbit) travelling in semi-stealth. That is, little support from allies since no one knows they are going, and certainly no elven or gondor/rohan assistance. Therefore, I generally leaned on the side of leaving things out, with the exception of the eagles since they fit in with the third scenario.

Can I get a little love for Ori, Dori & Nori? What about Thorin, Fili & Kili?

Of course - any of the cards in the actual "Over Hill and Under Hill" set would count.

Here is the strict list i intend to use, having whizzed through the first half of the hobbit this morning.

Please Note the following:
- It is not exactly gonna build you a very strong deck
- it should be completely thematic OR involve cards which are completely generic (e.g. sneak attack)
- i do not have a good idea of what the quests involve - i don't want them spoiled
- cards marked with a star do not appear until after the trolls section, so i may eave these until after that quest
- i've included all eagle cards, for playability (but no radagast )
- i've tried not to be influenced by card images
- i've left out Cram - no mention of it as far as i saw

Grateful for any input on stuff that should be left out put in

Yes, Cram isn't mentioned until Chapter 13, "Not at Home", even though it presumably was acquired at the end of Chapter 10, "A Warm Welcome", when they leave Lake-town with "many provisions".

It's just hard to think of Elrond stuffed in a sack.
