We will be kicking off pods of 4 players as they are ready. We plan to do the epic 12 player event starting at about 15:00 (assuming we still have 12 players who would like to play it)

 

Event Description (From the FFG Website): In Assault on Dol Guldur, players join the host of Lórien in a direct attack against Sauron’s Mirkwood stronghold taken straight from the appendix for The Return of the King. This unique scenario can be played by 1-4 players in Standard Game Mode or 3-12 players in Epic Multiplayer Mode. Only one copy of Assault on Dol Guldur is required to play Standard Game Mode, while three copies are required for Epic Multiplayer Mode. The scenario includes two double-sided setup cards, one for each mode, that players use to play the game in the desired fashion.

 

In Epic Multiplayer Mode, a group of 3-12 players are divided into three teams, and each team has its own encounter deck, quest deck, and staging area. Each team begins the game at their own stage one, but when everyone advances to stage three of Assault on Dol Guldur, they will find four different stage threes to choose from. Each one represents a different part of the siege, and only the team at that stage can make progress on it. In this way, each team is dependent on the others to do their part in order to win the battle and defeat the scenario.

 

Even though all three stages are interconnected, each one counts as its own game. So a card ability at one stage cannot affect the game state at another stage, unless it specifically says it does. Because each stage is its own game, two players at different stages can use the same unique card. That means players only need to coordinate their heroes with the other players on their team, not the entire group.
