A saga Bond of Friendship deck with all the original Bag End boys...

I like it. It's too bad Fatty's ability is garbage and in direct contradiction with Hobbit synergy. But he makes a decent defender for a Hobbit. Are you doing a saga playthrough with this?

Bag End Boys. Like The Fighting@Uruk-guy said too bad Fatty stinks. HE deserves a better version.

Mar 17, 2021 nelloianiro 545

why? He does nothing in the books

@nelloianiro If I remember right he fools the Nazgul by dressing like Frodo to give the real Frodo more time to get out of the Shire with the ring.

@nelloianiro And if I remember right, he leads a band of Hobbits against the ruffians before the rest of the Bag End Band return, that's what lands him in the Lockholes. "Fatty no longer"

Who do you use for Sword-thain?

@Uruk-guy Indeed. A Shadow of the Past was a breeze, killed 3 Nazgul, ended up with 22 Threat, 5 cards left in the deck and questing for 40+ in the last turn (the 7th one). Fatty with Ring Mail, Hobbit Cloak, Staff of Lebethron and 2 Spare Pipe was a beast (and when Rosie Cotton showed up she basically was superfluous since Fatty defended anything and Merry+Sam Gamgee killed everything).

@TaudirIt really depends on which cards I end up drawing and which resources are more needed. Bilbo Baggins, Rosie Cotton and Robin Smallburrow are all possible good targets.

I am logging the Saga quests while I play them, but they do not seem to be showing up here, someone knows why?

@Alonewolf87 Right under the big 'save' button, there is a little checkbox that says 'make this questlog public'. Click that before you save the questlogs.

or it says something like that.

@Truckthanks, now it works

Haven’t played for a while so silly question if I may- how are you hitting x5 heroes? Bond allows x4... what am I missing...

Mar 25, 2021 Truck 512

@David Mac, saga expansions add orange sphere heroes, which you must use and do not count against the hero limit. It is not in Frodo Baggins text box, but you must use The One Ring objective, and that has the text that says it does not count against the hero limit.
