Problem solved. For the benefit of anyone else with the same issue, here's the fix: 1. edit file "installed.xml" in \GCCG\xml directory 2. replace this line:   <source url="http://160.97.31.8/.gccg/"/> with this one: <source url="http://gccg.buonanno.org" /> All *.bat files now work fine for up...

GCCG: "Bad file descriptor" when updating

I'm trying to update my GCCG software (amongst other reasons, in order to play MTG with a friend).  However, when running the "Update Everything.bat" file, I'm finding that the update fails at this point: Fetching module list [4] http://160.97.31.8/.gccg/available.xml => available.xml Connectin...

Mark, thanks sincerely for taking the time to respond!  I have a few questions for you or any others prepared to tackle them: This deck is pretty badly designed.  It's all over the map Do you mean that geographically the target sites are too far apart?  I thought that most of the acti...

For beginners & experts: customizing the Challenge Decks

I'm still relatively new to MeCCG, and enjoying the Challenge Decks.  I thought it might be useful to have some threads here discussing some of the individual Challenge Decks, in order to help beginners understand how a deck works, and some of the basics of deck-building.  My idea is to us...

Analysis from Card of the Day #768 This is an interesting deck. I have to pause and try to understand why the designers chose to use Pallando with all these Dwarves ("Thorin and company, at your service.") instead of a Wizard who could take a more active role (namely, Radagast and Gandalf--for his ...

One more suggestion: playing a multi-session game.  One of the draw-backs to MeCCG is that those with a busy lifestyle will sometimes find it hard to complete an entire game in one session.   What I did with my son recently is set the game up on a corner table, and we played it in three sh...

My son is only 9 years old, but he just beat me with the Radagast Challenge deck versus Pallando, 35-33 (despite losing Legolas early in the game).  We both had 33 points when he called the Free Council, but he got double points for his allies since I didn't have any, so the extra 2 points were...

Perhaps it's because I'm only playing with the five Hero decks, and the environment cards like Doors of Night play a greater role in the five Minion decks?

Redundant cards in the pre-constructed Challenge Decks?

A question about the Challenge Decks: were they designed to be played against regular decks, rather than against each other?  It seems that they contain several cards (eg some of the environment cards like "Twilight" and "Gates of Morning") which don't really function much when playing against ...
