Bilbo Baggins

Minor(s): Kili & Fili

Back to LOTRED

Unlike his nephew, Frodo, Bilbo’s deck revolves around his using the ring.  This deck was updated in January 2020.

Bilbo Baggins
14 HP
Brown Deck

Kili & Fili
4 HP Each
Strong Ranged Minors

A4. STING does double any damage, up to 6 total.

A2*. The defending character may not defend your next attack this turn. If a card with INVISIBILITY in the title is on top of your discard pile, playing this card does not count as an action.

Move Bilbo up to 5 spaces and Bilbo may move through enemies. If a card with INVISIBILITY in the title is on top of your discard pile, playing this card does not count as an action.

D*. *Bilbo takes no damage from the attack.  After defending move Bilbo up to any vacant space.

D10. Draw a card.

You may search the discard pile for any attack card and put it in your hand.

Notes:  In January 2020 I made 2 changes.

  • Changed INVISIBILITY ATTACK from an A1 to an A2.  The point is that you can chain them together to get something out of them, not that you necessarily have to combine it with STING, though that’s still an option.
  • Reduced Kili & Fili from 5 HP each to 4 HP each and it’s an important change.  In LOTRED for strong minors, only mounted warriors get a 5th HP, otherwise they get 4 HP.  I was thinking that Kili & Fili and Balin & Dwalin from the Thorin deck had enough screen time to warrant 5 HP each, but they’re not personality minors; they don’t have their own cards and have to follow the LOTR rules.  It better balances out the Bilbo and Thorin decks anyways.

    I’m actually thinking INVISIBILITY ATTACK should be an A3. You could potentially string 3 of them together with a STING to do 12 unblockable damage. But, you need an exact set of 3, which almost never happens. Even doing 9 damage will be almost never, but it would give the “invisibility no action” effect a little more bite. It’s not like Bilbo is really tough though his defense is very good.

    Could you specify the function of sting? Which damage does it double? Previous damage up to 6? Following damage up to 6? Does it have to be damage from the same turn? Having difficulty because there’s nothing specific to the description. Could you possibly give an example? Not sure if it means 6 base damage before doubling or up to 6 doubled damage as well. Thanks! Love playing all of these decks and appreciate the work put in!

      Hi, thanks for your interest.

      Any damage done by STING as an A4 is doubled. If it is defended with a D3, it does 2 damage (1 damage doubled). If it is defended with a D2, it does 4 damage (2 damage doubled). If it is defended with a D1, it does 6 damage (3 damage doubled). If it is not defended, it does 6 damage (4 damage doubled is 8, but the card says “up to 6 total”). Hope that helps.
