– for experts –
Player cards and quests will be provided.
(16 players maximum)
Come without a deck. You will select your heroes and players card during a draft session. Play a classic or a interactive draft
Classic draft (8 players exactly)
Each player starts with a Gandalf ally, a random contract and a random hero from the draft pool. Then he or she gets 8 heroes and has to choose one and give the rest on his left. So everyone receive 7 cards, pick another one and pass the 6 other on the left. And so on until everyone pick 9 heroes. Each player will only play 3 heroes but those 9 heroes allow him to have some choice. Each hero comes with 2 players cards thematically linked to this character.
Then each player will receive a pack (called „booster“) of 16 player cards selected at random in the pool, choose one and pass the other on it right. We repeat it until everyone has picked 16 cards. Then we do that with 4 more boosters that we pass to the left, alernating direction with each pack. After this everyone builds a classic lord of the rings deck from those 9 heroes and 99 players cards. (Note: You are allowed to play all the copies of cards normally limited in 1 copies like Double Back or Magic Ring.)
If we finish early enough you can play a quick game with your deck before dinning. After dinning each group will face an Epic Multiplayer scenario.
Interactive draft (2 to 4 players each, up to 16 players at the end)
Each player starts with a Gandalf ally, a random contract and a random hero from the draft pool. Then we all receive 3 heroes, choosing one to keep secretly and one to pass to your neighbour face up. We repeat this action 3 times (alterning right and left if at least 3 players) so everyone get 5 heroes face up and 4 secret.
Then we select players cards with the same kind of method (it will differ depending the number of players) until everyone get enough cards to build a deck.
After that play against whatever scenario you like!
