My fav of Shadows of Mirkwood cycle Great, fun and exhaustive scenario. Players cards are not bad too. Dain is very strong character but I'm still regreting that in this AP isn't elves hero.

A "for variety" expansion, hence same rating as base game. This is rated a tough scenario and it feels like it too. There's a requirement to protect Gollum as all undefended damage goes through to him and he's only got 5 hit points, so you need to keep defense available. Which limits your questing. Guarding Gollum also sends your threat skyrocketing each turn though. To boot, there are heaps of big baddies, and with your threat headin' up, you've gotta just keep taking them and knocking them down. And with little left over to quest, this is a tough haul. Good fun though.

Expansion:

Very cool. I did not win it the first time with my pre-made decks. I need to do a little tweaking specific to this scenario.

Great conclusion to the cycle that combines questing and combat in possibly the most balanced quest.

Hero: Dain is one of my favorite Heroes so far. His passive ability is awesome in a Dwarven-focused deck with lots of Allies. 3 def and 5 HP make him a great defender too.
Player cards: The Eagle cards are awesome! Ever had that one Objective card you were looking for (Athelas I'm looking at you!!) show up as a Shadow card? Fear not, Shadow of the Past, the first Neutral Event, is here to save the day!
Quest/Encounter cards: It seems this quest can either go horribly wrong or perfectly. I have yet to experience something in between. Some of the treachery cards are a major pain, not to mention that deer-eating spider.

This scenario is a real challenge. I have not been able to make my standard Spirit/Lore deck work - which is a good thing for a change.
A Spirit/Leadership/Tactics approach with lots of Eagles finally did it.

They definitely saved the best til last. Some great thematic and fun player cards (such as Shadows of the Past, Dawn Take You All and Rumours from the Earth) topped off with the excellent dwarf hero Dain. The quest is also a tough one with some brutal cards which rival massing at osgilliath. Definitely recommended and has left me looking forward to the big box kazad dum expansion.

This is a great expansion. I'll give it a score of 8.5 (with the core being 9!) because I am more interested in the player cards than the encounter cards. You only get 1 hero and 27 player cards (which sounds like a lot but that is 3 copies of 2 cards from each sphere and 1 grey/neutral card) in this expansion. This expansion is better than most ... the player cards are quite strong and useful.

Dain Ironfoot. If you want to make a great Dwarf deck, this leader is a fantastic hero to have. The Gollum escort mission can be brutal, but the cards and adventure make it a great and fun challenge.

Hero
Cards
Quest

One of the strongest, most consistently interesting quests from Shadows of Mirkwood. Four quest cards makes for a lengthy experience and the Gollum inspired treachery cards can be pretty unforgiving. Attercop can be devastating at any time, meaning the player guarding Gollum must really keep some of his heroes ready even if the board looks clear. Could potentially do with more enemies...

The sixth and conclusive Adventure Pack in the "Shadows of Mirkwood" cycle. May great cards to be found here, Dain is a hero I can see myself using in the future. The quest is great. It is a hard quest, where the difficulty is placed throughout, not like journey down the Andiun, where it is heaviest at the start. Rampaging threat really gives this quest a sense of urgency. Best of the cycle. - Difficulty 7

Very nice expansion - theme is nicely done and the stages of the quest really give the feeling of the stuff that's happening. The only problem is the wrong kind of difficulty: one bad card can ruin the game as this is really tight mission.

Not a bad expansion. My experience saw extreme numbers of locations in the staging area with huge co-operative quests brute-forcing progress and many events causing the loss of cards. It certainly was challenging and required team-play to succeed.

Brutally difficult quest, in the realm of "don't even try this solo". Worth buying for a good selection of player cards including Dwarf superhero Dain Ironfoot and a bunch of other useful cards. But the quest is very much built around co-op play, practically useless for solo players.

The Lord of the Rings LCG is so good I can't really believe FFG made this (well, after seeing the huge amount of faqs and clarifications I actually believe it was made by them...).

The first cycle of expansions adds more awesomeness in form of new heroes, cards for the decks, and new quests.

Return to Mirkwood is a high difficulty scenario that's all about timing. It's fast and enjoyable, and a very appropriate last quest for the Mirkwood cycle.

I'll be coming back to this, later. Probably more fun with an extra player or more cards. Beat w/ a "Rohan Rush" deck (and lucky Encounter draw).
