The best of middle earth

This podcast is great for anyone playing or interested in playing Lord of the Rings LCG.

Great until 123

The first 122 episodes were fantastic. Great charisma and charm from Brandon (who really carried the show), the cohosts changed some but overall were outclassed by the Canadian sensation that was Brandon. After episode 111 it does take a gentle turn towards the end and it came as no surprise to me that 122 marked the ‘end’ of the show. The new hosts are vanilla ice cream compared to the 31 flavors of Baskin Robbins we had before. Chris is a great player and has the best insight but listening to him correct Chads incorrect assumptions about how cards work or game mechanics got old real quick. I slogged through it and am current as of ep 149 but it has been more out of my insanity for completion than enjoyment for the show. For me the eps past 123 are more about mining for Chris’s nuggets of game logic. Am still giving 5 stars because the first 122 deserve it, after that...2.

Meh...

Kind of a let down. I have to wade through alot of chatter. Jared, the Australian, is the only one with solid deck building tips while the host seems to steer the overcrowded conversation as best he can.

*update

Went from “meh” to “ha!”
