I recently acquired a (free) used copy of this game that is missing the Gandalf's Gifts cards. Anyone have the text of these cards so that I can at least give the game a shot?

You do realise that is 24 game cards that you have missing, not sure why someone would remove them before selling this on?

I will try to get the info up for you later.

Do you still want it?

Thanks much. The game was actually part of a package and I wasn't particularly interested in this game. Yes, I do know that's 24 cards - previous owner lost this deck and hadn't realized it before it got sent off.

If you're still willing I would appreciate it, as FFG has no extras left.

Okay, as promised. Each card has a category, its specific name, a very brief description of its purpose / use and a related quote from the book (that bares no relation to game play so if its okay I will omit this bit). Certain cards also have the requisite Smaug symbol for the final part of the game, I will use this symbol * to highlight which ones carry this.

Thank you! This is extraordinarily helpful. I'm a bit of a noob to BGG and as such have earned no GG for a tip at the moment, but once I earn some ... this is certainly deserving!
