1)Can the wathcer attack enemies after beeing revealed? If not its by far the most useless charracter in the game! How can you play with the watcher?! Is there any strategy?! Is there any use for this charracter. Lets say pippin etc reveals the wathcer an uses his ability to retreat back! The end you just losed a charracter! Everyone can avoid it if they know were it is.
Park him in Gondor and leave him there (hidden or revealed). Str 6 blocker, forcing a tough fight or otherwise blocking half the path to Mordor for Frodo (or Sam).
Cave troll being one of the best by far against my usual opponents who waste 5 and 4 strenght cards at the beginning of the game everytime!
Unless Gandalf does the meeting, I never use 4 or 5. Noble Sac removes him nicely (sure I'd like to save it for another nasty, but against CT it's 100% guaranteed success).
What strategies do you use to get anything positive with this card?
We never use any of the special cards.
