  1. Had a tough day at work, the joy of the day was managing to snap up a copy of the Treason of Saruman, came home to listen to your podcast and it made me laugh out loud as well as being insightful and thoroughly entertaining, you guys are a joy to behold. Lots of love, Mark from the UK. PS I’ve been reading Tolkien religiously for the last 35 years so I guess I’m a 9, there’s always something new to learn about the world he created so thank you for introducing it to so many new people. xxx PPS. I can’t wait to see you tackle The Lost Realm as I’m having real difficulty with it.

  2. We actually just had a card of the day post about Tactics Boromir the other day on reddit.com/r/lotrlcg! Reddit can be crazy and strange but the lotrlcg subreddit is really neat. There are few of us that are truly active there but its a great place to go and discuss all things LOTR LCG!

  3. Yes! The Hobbit trilogy compared to LOTR is EXACTLY the same as the 4th Indiana Jones movie is to the others.

    I was so sick of the stupid Thorin/Azog fight. I wanted more Eagles and Beorn!!!
