Magic Geek's Free get FREE People MILITARY VICTORY ! , turn 9. Played Against an old foe, not my normal shadow.
7 companions to Moria as first move. His Palantir of Orthanc drew 5 cards because I could not roll WoW, and refused to use a Ring for the game.
Gollum march happily into oblivion as I spent about 6 character actions moving the FSP. He managed to pull all 4 eyes out having moved only just past Moria. The Balrog did not die because he cannot eat Gollum. Interesting rule only in the book, not on the card.
Orthanc Got Hillmen moved into Rohan and Hid in HD from the 9HP sitting Edoras.
Lorien got Legolas, Galadriel, 2 elites and a regular, and poked Moria. Moria got upgraded and sat till the rest of the game.
Rivendell got 2 elites and a regular, and charged through a Trolled Shaw, right up to Mt Gundabad and poked it.
Gandalf Went to Dale, marched to the Road, Zipped off to Mt Gundabad, collecting Gimli and a Hobbit from Carrock, and set fire to Mt Gundabad with Elves and the Secret Fire. 2VP !
The King Scouted away from Minas T, retook Os-G, got MASSIVE reinforcements from Pelagir charged North East swerved and conquered Dol Guldur.
At the end he was on 8 points and looking at the final 2 VP in Woodland Realm. He had rolled ZERO army moves and only ONE sword. The Easterlings did not have any leadership and could not win.
Maybe I could have liberated Dale or Pelagir. I had abandoned. . .Minas-t, Rivendell, Woodland Realm, Dale, Pelagir, Helms Deep. .. Literally 3 regulars had died defending those places. I think I scored my first hit in the 6th battle.
I reckon my next try is gunna be Dwarves going to Angmar, then Mt Gundabad.

Gandalf and Gimli went North, Merry went to Rohan, Pipin to Fangorn, Aragorn and Boromir to Gondor, Legolas to Lorien. Dwarves went to war early using Book. Witch King mustered Easterlings, attacked Erebor and died. Whole North united to create 5/5/7, they conquered Mt. Gundabad, Elite from North Downs took Angmar. Shadow enter non-guarded Dale, defeat one Regular defending WR, and place siege in Erbor (6/0/0 against 2/0/1). Great mustering of the Elves in Lorien, Gandalf and Gimli joined them. Rivendell and Lorien marched to Moria. Shadow reinforced there (and in Dol Guldur too), but not enough, Elves took Moria easily. Last canning Shadow plan was to play Shadow on the Misty Mountains to Mt. Gram and try to retake Mt. Gundabad (5/0/5 defended). He played Dreadful spells and made 2 hits, but in the first round against Shield Wall he could make only one hit, and FP regulars made 2. Last attack wasn't necesary, (1 regular vs 2 regulars in Stronghold, but we played it too, 1:1). One Regular remained in Mt. Gundabad for the Free People Military Win.
good to see 7 companions to Moria. . . And it worked!
Some of his actions seem a little odd too, but ya get that when you are playing a game that you know, and they are scratching around trying to figure out what to do.
A lot of his moves could have been tighter. Some of your moves could have been a bit tighter too. Are you sure his men were on the right pills? Definately requires a rematch.

Magic Geek's Shadow Hound, Oppress and Crush, turn 12.
I got Excellent Action dice. Hillmen got onto Rivendell, and Nazgul Searched the FSP onto Moria. Lots of high damage later he abandoned the FSP and wanted to try a FPMV. But, EVERYWHERE was FULLY defended. Fear Fire Foes was cute, but ineffective.
Lorien with friends go sat on purely as a Defensive measure, after their escape route was blocked. He started moving the FSP again out of desperation, and was doing OK.
The Wolves went running to Grey havens, but turned back and jumped into Orthanc just as the Ents turned up. Then they conquered Rohan, Orthanc got Ented, The Dwarves went to War 10 stack in W. Harandor, Sth Ithilian & Nth Ithilian, then push into Os- Giliath from Sth Ith. I was SO paranoid about the King, that retreated to Pelagir, that musterings of a long planned war, the excess trolls from Moria, AND the orthanc lumpies went into Gondor to make sure. 47 red men went into Gondor. Grind.
Rivendell got conquered. Shire and Grey Havens died to Lumpys and Hillmen. White lead Dwarves liberated Greyhavens and the Shire. Northmen liberated Rivendell.
Gondor + Rohan + Woodland Realm for the game. Very few Blue men were left to Muster.

This game went wrong. Turn 2 the FSP was on 7 movement. Then they got hounded and turn stalled into the ground.
Magic Geek's Free Lose online to Lord Aragorn's Brother. Tried 7 companions to Moria, did not quite work. Close-ish but he had all the right dice, cards and tactics. Only need about 6 wins in a row to win the next world Championship now
