Show #19.5 Session Report: The Lonely Mountain, the Lair of Smaug the Dragon

In this Session Report show, we "Point-5" one of the games we discussed during our Lord of the Rings Extravaganza of Show 19.0.

This Session Report is based on a friendly game of ICE's Lonely Mountain: The Lair of Smaug the Dragon, that we shared with our good friend Bill. This is a light discussion of some of the strategies each of the three of us employed, and also of some of the unforeseen events that threw a wrench into most of our strategies. While this play example was quite atypical for a couple reasons, we still got some fun insights into this game, and so we hope you enjoy hearing about some of the surprises that awaited us deep in Smaug's Lair.

We always love to hear from you, so please post a comment to this blog entry (at or, or send us an email at!

Stay tuned for Show 20.0, on its way to you very soon.
