With the Mûmak Hunt winding down over at Tales from the Cards, it is high time for a new contest here at The Hall of Beorn. I find myself in possession of an extra copy of the just-released Nightmare Deck for Khazad-dûm and it needs a new home. In the spirit of Ian’s contest and the massive swarms of Orcs and Goblins in Moria, it seems fitting to continue with the hunting theme. Also, our recent four-player game had Matthew sacrificing a Beorning Beekeeper to damage nine enemies in the staging area – which was quite fun. This got me to thinking, as a bear is wont to do, just how many enemies could one kill in a single round?
So, here are the rules for this competition. Choose any scenario in the game, any mode and any number of players. The contest is to see who can rack up the biggest kill count in a single round. The reason for the one round limitation is that I am not interested in decks which include threat reduction and Will of the West to spend 50 rounds to kill the most enemies. This is more about one epic push to win the game, not about controlling the staging area and picking off a single enemy at a time. Please submit stories of your epic exploits in the comments below.
Style matters; it isn’t just about how many enemies killed, but how you killed them. Creative descriptions and ingenious means for maximum carnage (hint: The Hammer-stroke) are absolutely encouraged. The contest will run until midnight on Monday June 16th so you have a week to get your comments in. The story that I like the most will receive a free copy of the new Khazad-dûm Nightmare Deck, delivered anywhere in the world. Good luck, and happy hunting!
