Hi, is it just me, or do you have to set your three hero cards out in a certain order?

i.e., when i play Gimli, Legolas Aragorn, i have to have them in right to left along the table like that or If i play Eowyn i have to have her on the left side. Or put card draw heroes closest to my deck???

Can anyone relate to this - or ami insane?!?

Eowyn is always on the left. Couldn't play the game any other way. ;-)

Funny you should say that...

I feel the need to rank them left to right by Threat, Willpower, Attack, Defense, Life Points.

For me it's questing heroes (and allies) on the left, defensive heroes on the right and others in the middle - so Gimli, Legolas Aragorn would always be (from left to right) Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli :-)

It's a little bit of both, I think.

always puts them Bifur-Thalin-Gimli. I sometimes change 'em up, but it is usually Frodo-Loragorn-Bilbo.

Lately, I've played a few games with Aragorn-Beravor-Dunhere, and I always put Aragorn on the left, because he's obviously the leader, and then Beravor next to him, because she's also a ranger, so they might know each other, and then Dunhere on the other end, because he's probably just some random guy they might've picked up along the way.

So, no, you're not the only one.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

I usually re-order them if I fail at a quest before I try again. Just to make things seem different

It's EXTREMELY important to have your heroes in the exact right order! I have no logic behind it, though. It's just the way they've always been, so it's the way they should stay. My 2/3rd Dwarf party is very traditional (and rich).

Unfortunately, I sometimes forget what the exact right order of my heroes was (we play with wine!), but fortunately

On the left : fighters.
Middle : explorer (Eow4thewin or Glory2windel)
On the right : backers / defenders.

This is the way to win !

1st mag: Leadership/Tactics/Spirit/Lore
2nd mag: Threat Cost
3rd mag: Release Order
Allies are arranged in order which I play them during game

Heroes on line 1, along with Unique Allies.
Questers on line 2, left hand side.
Attackers/Defenders on line 2, right hand side.
Special effects on line 3.

Good to know I'm not the only crazy person in town.

Of course they need to be in a certain order!
The Spheres should be kept together.
Any hero who is "royalty" should always be to the right of the others.

My presumed party-leader (usually Leadership hero, but could be Elrond) is always on the left side.
When I play dwarves, the Heroes are on the left, followed by unique dwarven allies, then Gandalf and then non-uniques.

OCD is strong in this one.
