Hello all - I'm very fortunate to have two copies of the Tactics Boromir from GenCon, so I'm going to sell one. I'm not sure what I think of this, this, or this, but feel free to PM me with offers. I'll decide by the end of the week.



Thanks!

Do you have alt art legolas? If not do you want to trade? I put my spare one away somewhere (just have to find the safe place I put it).

Does anyone have any idea how many/few of these were printed? I bought a copy on Ebay for $67.00 and that's the cheapest I've seen them sell for. Still looking for the Gimli card

I *think* there was 48 spots in each Gen Con event and that there was maybe 3 of the events? Maybe 4?

Either way I think there is probably under 200 of these out there.

that's so heartbreaking lol

i really wanted that Gimli from last year because he fit with Legolas and the playmat (which i do have, thanks to Ira, coincidentally enough), but felt that $50 USD was way too much

now this Boromir is going for way more than that lol.


i get that they're going to have promos for special events, but compared to any other LCG, they have a LOT of available alt-arts, mats, tokens, etc., and this game has barely anything. not even a retail-purchasable playmat like many other LCGs do


also, sorry for the derail <_<

When they reprint the deck after GenCon, does it include the alt art cards? I always get them at GenCon so don't know the answer but assumed they did.

the fellowship quest from last year included the Murder at the Prancing Pony quest, the Gimli/Legolas playmat, and the Legolas card, but NOT the Gimli card

similarly, this year's fellowship quest will include the Siege of Annuminas quest, the Faramir card, and the Sterner Than Steel playmat but will NOT include the Boromir card

But wasn't Gimli part of the Old Forest deck? Why would he be in the Prancing Pony again?

And crap, now that you say Legolas, I don't see him in my Prancing Pony deck. I know I had the card but don't kow where I put him! Was he in any other deck?

actually, now that i remember, i thought Gimli was part of the Ruins at Belegost (because there wasn't enough confusion), but what i do know with absolute certainty is that Boromir and Gimli were only available at gencon


i did get Legolas as part of my stuff with Murder at the Prancing Pony, but no place ever did anything here in NZ for it, so i paid to have it shipped to me by Ira (the op)

The Alt Art cards are part of the deck you get at GenCon. I guess the question still remains if these are exclusive to GenCon or if they come in the complete deck if you buy it POD later.

Luckily, I found Legolas in a stack of promos I haven't put away. I remember now we didn't have any Fellowship events around here for me to get Prancing Pony and I had to trade for it. The trader put him in a sleeve to make sure he arrived safe and I placed him in a different stack of cards. Whew.

Yes, I mistyped, Gimli was Ruins of Belegost. Fog on the Barrow Down was Aragorn. Old Forest I am not showing an Alt Art card. Is there a complete list of all the alt art cards?

Having purchased many of the POD expansions after the events, I can confirm that they do not include alternate art heroes. I don't have Murder at the Prancing Pony, but I don't expect they've changed their plans with that release.

I really hate how FFG is handling these alt art cards. It especially sucks if you've been a long time fan of this game, buying everything, but you just happen to live VERY FAR from gencon.


I really love that the exclusive promos consist entirely of alt-art cards, so that I don't lose any content from being unable to go to GenCon.

For $100 I would rather buy 3-4 extra core sets!

A shame, as I would really love to have the alternate art promos (Gimli, Boromir), but they are simply not worth that much money to me.

I'll print a custom holo foil with the art. I'd like the real thing but not for what it would cost.

there is absolutely no question.

Aragorn, Gimli, and Boromir are not available outside of those who have attended GenCon (and anyone they've sold their copies to, or they have sold theirs to, etc. etc. etc.)

they are absolutely not available in the POD quests


Legolas and Faramir are, however, as are the playmats, available during the fellowship event.

if you wait to POD it long after the event, all you'll get is the quest.

that's it:

Aragorn

Gimli

Legolas

Faramir

Boromir

i'm absolutely sure about all of this information. all of the previous game night kits included nightmare decks and a playmat (Khazad-dum and Heirs of Numenor), but they were set up in a 'competitive' manner, with only one copy of each of everything, making it quite difficult to implement into a co-operative game

Faramir is in which set? An upcoming one? You mentioned siege above, but that should have just been Boromir

Hall of Beorn has the Aragorn alt-art card listed for both The Old Forest and Fog on the Barrow Downs and I know that I got a copy of the Aragorn card with my purchase of The Old Forest on Ebay. The seller was a private individual, though, so he probably got the card at GenCon 2014.

Faramir is from the Siege of Annuminas Fellowship event

Boromir is from GenCon

i have both of these as POD quests, and they did not include an Aragorn


i could be incorrect about whether it was GenCon or Fellowship event though, but no alt-art cards are ever in the POD quests themselves.

Aragorn was part of the Fellowship 2014 Kit. Maybe he was given out with the Old Forest event on GenCon the same year.

That actually sounds familiar. I think he was handed out loose before they started putting him in the deck.

Does anyone have images for the alt art cards? Can't say I have seen any other than the Boromir card.
