HI, all. I wanted to re-play through all of the scenarios, but as I don't have any of the nightmare decks, I have the idea that this will make the game outrageously easy, given the deck-building pool I have now (I have everything but the nightmare decks).


For the most part, it won't.

I've had a lot of luck building decks based more on theme than power level (like only including Rohan allies with Eowyn, Dunhere, and Hama, or only including Gondor allies with Denethor, Boromir, and Faramir). It curbs the power level a little bit, but not enough to make things outrageously difficult.

That said, limiting yourself to only heroes (or only cards, or however) that were 'available' for the given quest is a fun way to constrain yourself and force a more creative deckbuilding strategy.

I also thought that with current card pool, previous quests would be way too easy, then hopelessly lost to Road to Rivendell.

Overall I don't feel much difference.
Except that I can build deck according to my wishes, e.g. Elves/Eagles/Dwarfs e.t.c.

There are so many variables that go into what makes a playthrough of a scenario difficult including # of hands being played, the randomness of the scenario itself, how specialized of a deck the scenario requires, the power level of the deck itself relative to the types of decks that work well with the scenario, how inherently nasty the cards are within the scenario, proper strategy and luck on the players part.... hero choice is just one small part that goes into that.

Does anyone know how to do this? The hero cards don't have set symbols on them, to my dismay. They have numbers, but I don't know what numbers correlate to what set.


Really? They should have set symbols...

Anyways, apart from the Cardgame DB link above you can also use this one here, which works really well and might be easier to navigate (for me, at least, it is).

Ah, I think I know what you mean... the set symbol is only for whole cycles or bigger expansions. It does not say, which individual box they came from for the smaller expansions.

Yeah, it is the easiest way to just look it up in one of the online databases.

Bye
