Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I was too charmed and tickled not to brag, ahem, share. My 7 year old son spent his evening creating LOTR LCG expansion cards. One "Caught in the Trees" treachery card inspired by The Hobbit and one Balrog, one hero card (an as of yet unnamed rider of Rohan) and other allies and attachments.

He determined sheild and attack numbers, powers and consequences, etc. He drew their pictures and even colored the backs of the cards orange with an eye and brown with a ring. And if all that wasn't good enough, he even sleeved them.

Yeah, we'll keep him.

He's a card player, gambler, scoundrel. You'd like him.

The first is the Balrog complete with wings. There are allies for each deck (complete with symbols). And Caught "cot" in the trees is the first on the bottom.

We don't have a TV, and he hasn't seen the movies so all of his imagery is from the game and his imagination from reading The Hobbit, (and eavesdropping on Dad and I when we talk about LOTR).

Not sure he we be an artist when he grows up but perhaps a game designer!

He and my 6-yo daughter should team up. She draws Sauron's eye all over the place, and even designed her own LotR board game. Thanks for sharing.

Too cute!

My son did the same thing. Here is a picture of a Hero card he named after himself when he was 6. I wrote the combat action on the card for him, but he devised the effect and stats himself.

It's actually a good hero to play, though a little overpowered.
