The Game
The game lasted around 2 hours . My dad's threat ended at nine (with a Favor of the Valar attached to his threat tracker), he attacked an enemy with 83 attack, we had three White Wargs trapped in three Ranger Spikes, none of our heroes or allies were damaged, and my dad had 25 allies by game end.

Now we are taking these decks to Across the Ettenmoors!

Here's some Geek gold for the lists of your decks, I have never really worried about the deck being exactly 50 as long as the deck doesn't depend on specific cards to "work" your dad;s deck seems to fall into this category and is an example of a deck larger than 50 still "working"
