War of the Ring: I was this close....
Steve and I played a game of War of the Ring (with Expansion of course!) today. He had never played nor read the rules, so I set him up with the Shadow. Wouldn't you know, he beat me!
I decided to try out my Strider push strategy by immediately separating Strider, Boromir, and Pippin on turn one, shooting them down to Fangorn, dumping Pippen next to Treebeard, then blasting down to Minas Tirith on Turn 2. Unfortunately Will of the West dice did not appear and for some reason I overlooked just burning an elven ring to get one. I held the Deadmen of Dunharrow card, so I shot Strider back up to Edoras. Steve had an army mucking about near Dol Amroth, and I was going to put the hurt on him with the skeletons. Unfortunately, I was one impulse too slow, and he moved out of skeleton range after sacking Dol Amroth before I could spring my trap. So, I just teleported down there with the skeletons, crowned Strider, and recaptured Dol Amroth. This whole process was fun, but I think it burned way too many dice doing all this.
Anyway, to make a long story very short I made it all the way to two Mordor spaces away from the rink dunk (still having only 2 corruption and a Fellowship consisting of Gandalf, Gimli, Legolas, and Merry: very strong but perhaps moving a turn or two too carefully), when Steve achieved 10 military VP. Great job, Steve!
