I waited because I wasn't sure if we needed to go in Hobbit order.
This is indeed a fellowship, so I discard my g Friendship card.
So, Pippin, are you with us?!

Instructions: As you can see, I posted all the event tiles there are in the game and numbered them from 1-23. Now, it's Frodo's turn, so Frodo rolls a d23 which will determine the tile that is drawn. After that, I'm going to take that tile out of the post and we'll then roll a d22, and so on!

I will update these boards whenever I can so to keep things organised and as little confusing as possible.

As for the use of the ring, I think that should be ok, you may consult among yourselves and whenever one of you thinks the time is coming for the ring to be used, you just have to post your opinion.

So! To get things started, please do roll a d23 Mr Frodo.

Good luck and enjoy!

I think this worked quite well the last time, but feel free to post any suggestions you might have that you think could improve this system.

I think we should make a plan how to deal with Moria.

Since I don't have any fighting cards and because we have to fight at Helms Deep and against Shelob too, my recommendation is to ignore the main activity line and concentrate our effords on passing the Events and collecting Life Tokens.

I'm in favor of fighting our way through. If the Orcs Attack, we lose 5 Fighting. If we try to fight our way through the main activity (10 Fighting), and Frodo uses the Ring (which advances 2 1/2 spaces on average), then we're only 2 1/2 more Fighting than going through all the Events... and Trapped and Fly You Fools are pretty devastaing.

Then again, I think it's important to see which way the wind blows, so if we start out with a bunch of Events, maybe go that way.

Hm, I feel like every time I've gone out Moria "the back way" as we call it (by getting all six events) it has been a bad thing. I'd like to avoid that... but again, if we get that many events, then we'll deal with it when it comes.

I also don't think we should be trying to finish Traveling and Hiding to avoid Trapped. I think doing those to get some life tokens on the side makes sense, but focusing on fighting. I, of course, will hold off on putting on the ring until it looks like we really need it.

Now, how does this start?

First event tile: 1d23 = (3) = 3

That's a traveling, so I'll get one shield from that. Then, since I was the one who suggested doing a lot of fighting:

I'll play:
Anduril: 2xFighting g
Hobbit card: Travel w, using as Wild as a fighting.

So that's 3 fighting, getting me another two shields and a ring token, for a total of 3 shields.

Oh, and if we get the first event I can cover the Wild part easily. I can even cover the Friendship with a second white card if needed.

Yep.

A suggestion: can there be some indicator in the status of who's turn it is? Maybe a star next to their name? I know at some point I'll forget that I'm up, and having a visual cue would be helpful.

d22 = (22) = 22

So we have to resolve that tile before we continue?

I think we should pay the cost. Frodo has a Ring Token (there are still 4 more in the scenario) and Shield. Sam and I have the most cards. I have a card in mind that I would be willing to part with.

I also think we should pay the cost if we want to to finish this scenario before we get trapped, although I cannot contribute.

I agree, we should pay the cost.

I discard my ring token and one shield, bringing me down to 2 shields.

If someone else can handle the card, that would be great.

Merry here. I discard my Hide w to complete avoiding the Event.
Carry on, Samwise.

Oops! Got Merry and Pippin confused for a second then, what with their artwork being backwards in this game.

I will roll D21 with the 21 tiles being the first 21 pictured above (this works only because I took out the 22nd one).

d21 = (11) = 11

Fighting gives me a shield. I will then play 2 Travel cards (1 grey and 1 white) to gain another shield and a sun token.

The Hiding gives me the Book and since I cannot help with the fighting, I will also take two Hobbit Cards.

... which is really a 16 Event:
- Speak friend and enter: Group discards "Friendship" and "Joker" otherwise sauron

I don't have a Friendship. I do have a Wild, but I'm hoping Frodo has more. What do you Hobbitses think?
