I couldn't believe how long it's been since I ran Rohan- and in particular the Riders of Theoden. I was pretty excited to put them on the table! Andrew brought the Black Gate Opens with his new love for the Mouth of Sauron. We rolled for scenario and came up with Recon. We almost re-rolled since that feels like a big advantage for Rohan... on the other hand could two hurling trolls win the day? In the end we stuck with it, even assuming it might be a tougher fight for BGO.

Andrew's Black Gate Opens list.
Closing Thoughts: Well, we sort of knew this might be pretty lopsided for Rohan unfortunately. Sometimes it's still good to play it out and be reminded? I guess? It was a refresher for me on how to play cagey with Rohan and that bit was at least a little bit fun to see play out but.. whoof. Andrew was in a real pickle here.
