Jaded and I learned that one can't just move the .gccg folder over from a windows install to a linux one and expect it to work. We didn't explore the reasons in detail. If anyone needs to truly share his installation between the two OS-es he's encouraged to explore and report back here.

I think Arinmîr is indeed a woman. I've seen an all women deck played once. Its strongest asset were the factions some of these women have cool bonusses against. It had mainly very small companies / single women popping up at their homesite. This is pretty far from an actual deck so far, so I've mov...

Welcome to and merry christmas :D If a creature isn't killed during its attack, it goes to your discard pile at the end of the attack. That's sort of a general rule btw: cards are discarded after use. So everything that isn't specified to be in a particular place anymore (MP-pile, hand, in...

I've seen something of the sort played at a Lure once (they use it as part of the rules for their "Crazy German Boxes Sealed"). IIRC it created lots of item sites, with the type and auto attacks specified on the rules sheet. Personally I didn't fancy that. So many item sites suddenly, IMHO it unbala...

Welcome to, Jonathan :). I've never actually read Mastering Middle-earth (just browsed a bit), so I can't really speak about that one. Beside that, I'd personally go for (way) more cards first, starting with the remaining challenge decks. IMHO having more cards opens the game up way more t...

Actually, that side of the pond will probably be 2010 again. Meanwhile, make it easy on you and do that 2009 in those Netherlands? ;)

Yeah, be happy you got the Balrog (and MEAS)! Contrary to a few years ago, MELE and MEWH aren't all that big a deal anymore.

No, it's not encrypted. What you were looking at was probably an actual password. If you want to use your account on another computer, you need to copy the .gccg folder over. It contains your password, decks and some settings. It is somewhat frustrating that people carelessly throw this away, even t...

Not everyone has the time to read 113 Digests, the rules, the CRF, etc with all their contradictions and further corrections. I know this game needs all this work, and be sure we appreciate all the effort put into it a lot, BUT, we need to have all these stuff condensed in only one document That's ...

Buying commons and uncommons in bulk is a cheap way to get a lot of cards fast, so in that sense it can be very interesting. However, if you eventually want the rares too, you'll find you can more or less get the commons and uncommons for free alongside those. I.e. if you buy sets or boosters to get...

3-player table!

There's 3 player table available for the month December. Enjoy it while it lasts! (The server hardware can only support a limited number of tables, so a 2 player constructed table had to be removed for the time being. This table will be sorely missed when the constructed tournament starts in Januar...
