Sick and tired of getting run over by Nazgul? Annoyed by pesky Moria swarms? Don’t fight harder. Fight smarter, with the help of the Baggin’s Braintrust. We may look small, but don’t let that fool you. With the help of our founder Bilbo and the company president Frodo, you’ll soon find that the thinking man’s solution is worth more than brute force any day of the week.

A few brief notes on play style: Bid around 4 or 5. You’d like to go first, but its not the end of the world if you don’t because that should net you an early Treebeard. Toss Merry and Pippin during other people’s skirmishes. If trackers don’t get played in your area or if Nazgul have died down, consider Mind Your Own Affairs or Power According To His Stature as replacements for Fearing The Worst, one of the Filbert Bolgers, Frying Pan, etc. in flavor with your local meta. It takes a few games with this deck to really get the hang of it, so don’t get discouraged too quickly.
