Hello everyone! I am going to jump into the 100 game exercise with Lord of the Rings, inspired by Wojo's insightful (and just delightful) thread http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_foros_discusion.asp?e... on the FFG forums

Based on the experiment presented here on the Geek http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/142757/the-100-play-ch... brave adventurers choose a game and play it 100 times (not in a row or all at once, though) and during/after each play, take notes based on what is going through your head or what is happening. Hopefully, by the end of the experience, we'll have had a good time, gained a lot of gaming wisdom, and maybe even come up with one (pair of) deck(s) to rule them all.

To make things a little different from just treading the same ground as those before me, I am doing three special things:

First, this will be Nate and Zackery's excellent adventure. Every game will be a two-player affair, we'll see if our friendship can survive
Second, We're going to play the quests in order of publication. However, there will be no moving on to the next quest until we defeat the quest that we are currently on. How many quests can we defeat before the 100 game "timer" runs out?
Third, and the point of this post, we're going to pick some of our heroes based on what you tell us to pick! I'm throwing open a vote, as follows:
Please pick and post the names of four heroes that you think we should use in this 100 play experiment. It can be based on power, winnability, your personal favorites, card art, spheres you think we should use; vote for whichever four heroes strike your fancy.

We'll get underway in about a week, so stay tuned and please vote.

I would say Legolas and Eowyn certainly. Also Eleanor (?) or whoever it is who can cancel shadow cards.
I don't have cards from beyond the Hunt for Gollum chain.

I think it would be interesting to go with fan made heroes. Then again, I'm being biased having just received my first artscow pack...epicness!

This is a tricky choice.

Do you want "good" heroes?

Or do you want "crappy" heroes to make the challenge harder?

Bilbo

I can't imagine a 100 play challenge without the good old Bilbo Baggins.

Edit:
You want me to name four so here are the other three:

Eowyn
Frodo
Aragorn (Lore)

I just had a great time with

Aeowyn
Dunhere
Thalin

Came close to playing 100 games with these 3 over the last 2-3 weeks. You should be able to do well with them in almost all scenarios.

You wanted 4?

I think I would use Bilbo or Frodo to come off the bench as a substitute.

There is NO WAY that I'd ever choose a crappy hero over a good one.

That said, are there actually crappy heroes? Or are they all just good in their own special way?

Who is this? Is it Eowyn? Or a fan made card? Or is it a hero from an expansion I don't have yet?
