I wanted to share my questing setup. As my friend Sean and I continue to work on beating every single quest (So far we're just over halfway done, having recently defeated Assault on Osgiliath), the comfort of the Questing HQ became a major focus!
2 Player Mat, and Colored Sleeves
Secondly, the two player mat was one of the best purchases I've made for any game! I downloaded the file from Board Game Geek, and got it printed at Inked Playmats (by selecting the custom, double sized mat). Nothing but good things to say about Inked Playmats, and I've now also ordered some Netrunner mats from them.
The mat is perfect for cards- it feels like a mouse-pad, so picking cards up off the table is easy. Plus, it has a staging area threat tracker, a willpower tracker, and spots for the Encounter Deck, Quest deck, Active Location, and Discard pile. Just fantastic.
Beads and Storage
I store all of my cards in a 5,000 capacity baseball card storage box. I'm using less than half, but that leaves extra room for threat trackers, tokens, etc.
Since the Lord of the Rings movie craze has died down, I was able to find this awesome map online for $1.13. I bought a frame, and hung it up next to the table so the quests can have some context!
"Quest HQ" is designed with two players in mind, but in a pinch can host 4. In the future, however, it's probably worth moving to the dining room table with 4, as it gets a bit crowded!
What card gaming aides do you guys use?
