hi,
in a 3 or 4 player game with 2 core sets, should i include all encounter cards from both core sets? for example: the anduin scenario should include 4 trolls instead of 2.

No. just the encounter set from one core set.

Unless you enjoy the pain.

No, you should only be using a single encounter deck. That said, you can always tweak the rules if that makes the game more enjoyable for you.

Also, remember that only one of each unique card can be in play no matter how many players are involved.

Thx for the quick response.
So basically, buying 3 core sets is only to make sure that I have 3 copies of each card? What are you suppose to do with all the other cards?

Well, whatever you want. That's the problem some people have with the way FFG packaged the core set. If you want three of each player card, you end up with a lot of useless extras. You may be able to sell some to other players on ebay? Not sure about that.

I only have one core set myself.

Correct. I bought 2 core sets and 1 of each expansion. I have problems cutting down to 60 card decks as it is. I don't miss the few cards that I only have two of.

I'll pick up a third set when I find one cheap enough. I built a tool to watch the various auctions that pop up on BGG, filtered down to my wishlist. If you're interested, add LotR to your wishlist as a "1-4" and it will show up here and also in your news feed when someone puts it up for auction.

I use those extra cards as on backround for custom scenario cards. I allso need some cards for many diferent decks, so I have sitution when I can have even 6 copies of the same gard in the game (not unique ofcource).
But it is not very usefull to have 3 copies of core set. 1 or two is enough!
I just bought my 4rt copy of the core set just so that I can make more decks ready to play... hmmm... maybe one more...

Having extra sets of encounter cards is really nice because you can have several different quests set up and ready to go. It is very convenient.
