The Rearguard
The Dark of Mirkwood #3 (x1)

3A-B (6)

When Revealed: The first player adds the set-aside Goblin Troop to the staging area. Each other player searches the encounter deck and discard pile for a Goblin enemy and adds it to the staging area.

The Goblins are aware of your pursuit and form a rearguard to confront you while the others retreat to their secret hideaway. You must defeat this troop before you can continue your chanse.

This stage cannot be defeated while Goblin Troop is in play. When this stage is defeated, the heroes discover the trail to the Goblins' secret lair and the players win the game.
