The third part concludes the first of the six saga expansion boxes for the Lord of the Rings (LCG). I did not liked this quest, because you get swarmed by Nasguls and as far as I rember you have to use the addional burden deck cards a lot to cancel all the attacks. Also, the ring bearers‘ life is ticking away which makes it quite uncomfortable to play.
I had Thorongil, a Dagger of Westernesse and a Staff of Lebethron in my starting hand. I could play all three with my 5 starting resources. With all that equipped, there was no risk engaging (and killing) one Nasgul each round.
The Last Bridge forced to reveal a card from the burden deck, I drew Eaten Alive!, usually quite harmless in single player, but with the low health pool of the Hobbits it can get nasty. Later I drew a Raise the Shire, decided against the all-so-good combo with Farmer Maggot (the few enemies that apeared were managable) and searched my deck for Odo Proudfoot instead. That nets two more Hobbits to draw and brings more hardly needed quest points.
With finaly getting the Red Book of Westmarch I can quest heavily and win the game after 26 minutes on round 8. This time the quest was an easy walk through. One attempt, one win.
