Last night, Kim was claiming that, on account of the absence of the word "other" in its text, Magic counts itself as a Maneuver for the purpose of giving itself extra Power. Which makes it +3 Power even before any other Maneuvers are played.
I call shenanigans on that interpretation, as that is ridiculously overpowered for a 4-cost card.

Anyone?

The card was misprinted.
We are reprinting it in the Smaug expansion.
The wording is supposed to be:

+1 Power and an additional +1 Power for each different Maneuver you play or have played this turn (including this one).

Hey Matt,

just noticed that you mentioned the "Smaug Expansion". Are you referring to the second Hobbit Deck Building Game? Or are you referring to an expansion built on to the first game?

I've heard rumours of expansions to the LoTR deck building games, but there's a lot of confusion from everyone I've asked about it.

Thanks!

Oh, and just FYI, this game is AMAZING!!! Easily my favourite of the three games so far. SO many different combos and synergies throughout the game, some real excitement with cards like Riddles and I love the new system with starting cards and archenemies ambushes and loot. Great job Matt - if the RoTK game and Hobbit sequels are as great as this game I will be stoked.

The only minor curiosity I had about the game though was that so many of the cards are really, really dark. Many of them you have to really look to even see what it's a picture of, and of course the pictures add a lot of impact to the game. Just a minor quip though, overall an amazing and fun game.

Smaug is going to be an expansion to the Hobbit Deck-building Game.
There will not be a standalone Smaug DBG.

Yes, the art turned out a bit too dark, so we are going to lighten it up in house before sending it to the factory in the future.

Thanks,

Are you saying future games will have better images? Or reprints of The Hobbit will have the better images? Should I wait to get this when the graphics are improved?

There won't be a reprint. Not for a movie franchise that is ending this year.

We will improve the brightness on future games that use dark movie images.
