I decided to do little experiment and try how many attempts I will need to win 5 times with deck, also using progressive play, so only the cards, which were available at that time, when scenario was out. This is #3: Escape from Dol Guldur.

I have to admit I tried several decks including my own Escape from Dol Guldur solo deck with Legolas, Gloin and Eowyn and I give up on them, when I was not able to win at least once in 10 games. At the end, after several different decks and desperate outcome I picked up the favorite killer deck and added few cards, which from my point of view are suitable for this scenario and it finally worked.

I won 5 games in 35 attempts and won my first game on 8 attempt and from then it went better and better. See the best thing on this game is really that it's not so important what you play, but how. It's about personal choices on particular situations, so if somebody will say this deck didn't work for him, well, it's not bad deck, but terrible tactician, who don't know how to use the deck.

So, what I noticed playing this? 1. never risk, not even with traveling to locations with reward, always pick up known choice and don't face to unknown, if you don't have to. Get Northern Tracker to hand asap and think about your moves, where you can (with help of Henamarth Riversong).

Note worth discussion: during setup based on 1A card, you still have 3 heroes, so if caught in the web will pop up or something similar, you can put it also on future prisoner, right? If your 'random' pick up work, cause you are choosing the prisoner on 2B. Anyway, let me know what you think about this. I won't touch this scenario until I finish mirkwood cycle, I had enough :D.

And yes, Beravor must be the prisoner, but its not so hard to shuffle 3 cards and still remember which is which.

Yes, but there is a low chance that the webbed hero will be captured.

And five out of thirty five, that's really good!
