Normally I don't make posts about our game sessions but I'm super stoked about this one.
We beat the game last night on what we call extreme hard mode. That means the following:
Play Game 7
Start location 1 with 2 darkness
Start each other location with 1 darkness when revealed
Play with all 3 versions of Voldemort
Variant where when one of the 3 final villains is defeated the game 5 Voldemort moves down a space revealing the game 6 Voldemort. Then when the next Villain is defeated the Game 6 Voldemort moves down and the game 7 is revealed.
Thus all 3 abilities are triggering every turn.
Also you may only assign damage to V5 once all normal villains are defeated. You cant assign damage to V6 till V5 is defeated and no damage to V7 til V6 is defeated.
Wow that was rough but we were able to clear the game.
We played 2 player with Ron and Hermonie
Proficiencies were Potions on Ron for the extra damage when playing diverse thus triggering the heals when 3 dmg is reached.
Hermonies Proficiency was the one that gives you discounted dice and rerolls.
We lost location 1 very very fast and were able to hold location 2 for a while but eventually lost it. But location 3 was no problem and never was defeated thus we never had to encounter location 4.
The key for us was being able to discard 2 junk cards with Ron to remove darkness from the reward from the horcruts
We defeated horcruts 1 and 2 quickly to get the abilities and sat on 3 for a while not wanting to reveal number 4 but once we did it was a breeze with hermonie having 2 to 3 die rolls per turn with the cards she had and the abilities from the past horcruts
It was a ton of fun.
One note is that on the final turn Ron was stunned lost half his cards and was still able to do 16 damage on the final turn.
Pretty epic game
Now we will be trying to do this again but with different proficiencies hopefully beating the game with every proficiency with no duplicates. So we will see how that goes but it will take a while
Are you a core deck builder player?
I challenge you to do this Extreme Hard Mode!

We did it again last night but this time with Harry and Nevel.
We used the proficiencies Transfiguration and Divination
Defiantly much more of a challenge with this extreme hard mode.
Recommend trying it if your up for the challenge.
I believe in you.
After easily beating Game 6 our first time through (When we won, we were on location 1, with full health, with no location markers...) we decided to do this for Game 7.
We were beaten to a bloody pulp twice. :-/
We'll probably go back to normal rules next time.
