Post by kevinfelker42 » Thu Jan 18, 2007 8:56 pm

Hi Kevin, welcome to MeCCG.net.

No, it differs per language.

We have the All About the Cards board over here for this sort of topic. I think with some browsing you'll will find most (all?) of this already covered. I moved this one alongside.

That looks like a very comprehensive list and well researched.

I'm not sure about the "what nots". I think you may find there are a few other promo items/prizes.
So that's where that southerner is hiding...He looks more than half like a goblin.

A quick search revealed these threads:

Prizes: http://www.meccg.net/dforum/viewtopic.p ... ght=prizes

Promos: http://www.meccg.net/dforum/viewtopic.p ... ight=promo

"Foreign" (non English language) editions: http://www.meccg.net/dforum/viewtopic.p ... gn+foreign

Do you need anything not covered so far? If you've found anything else not covered in your inventory it would be great to add it here so its all in one place.

There is also a "Starter set" out there. You can see the picture of it on boardgamegeek.com. I don't believe it is the "Gift set". Because it says on it "Starter set", not "Gift set".

This set has I believe two decks(gandalf and sauromon), a player map and two player sheets,adventure guide, 2 dice, 2 hobbit marker (figurine), and two marshalling point markers.

Sorry if this is common knowledge but I didn't see it on the forum.

Here is the picture:

Where can I get one of these bad boys?
