A Pack at the Door

After Gimli had his pick on one of the German special cards (nicely done, by the way), I will try to elaborate on the other eight cards.

As the Hobbits only vaguely remember, there was a time when wolves hunted in the Shire. With this card, you can turn back the wheel of time and relive those dreadful days when there was

Das Pack vor der Tuer :: Spezial :: Langfristiges Ereignis

Spielbar wenn die Tore der Nacht im Spiel sind. Jede nicht einzigartige Tier-, Spinnen- und Wolf-Kreatur kann in Grenzreichen, Grenzorten oder Ruinen & Horten gespielt werden. Die Kreatur muss in einer Region spiel- bar sein, die keine Meereskueste ist.

(Translation: Pack at the Doors :: Special :: Hazard Long-event

Playable when Doors of Night are in play. Any non-unique animal-, spider- and wolf-creature can be played keyed to Borderlands, Border-holds or Ruins & Lairs. The creature must be playable at a region other than a coastal sea.)

I consider this one a staple card for any hazard deck concentrating on one kind of animals or the other (or perhaps all of them). They remove the need of double wilderness from Dire-wolves and Giant Spiders and extends the range of all animals to some areas previously thought save from them.

OK, it needs Doors of Night, but when you play animals, you certainly want to use Wake of War to its best extend and preferably play Shelob and her brood (known as Spider of the Morlat) to harden your little pets anyway, so that is no real hinderance to using this card.

It is only a longevent, and it is hard to get by (remember, you get one with one of those Gift Boxes, which go for about 150,-DM (100$)). So you should plan for some ways to either get it back quickly or to keep it in play - Will of Sauron, anyone?

Of course you are in for some heavy weather when meeting another animal hazard deck, in which case you basically have two options: Take the bea- ting, and hope to give more than you take, or don't use the Pack.

this reviewer has spoiled me - i expected more from this card - it was nicely done but not as extensive as other reviews - fell a little short on this one
