Gandalf The Grey

From Board Game Online Wiki
(Redirected from Gandalf The Gay)

Gandalf The Grey can be reached from the Eye Of The Graeae event, the Khufu's Journey event, the Catapult's standard self-launch with the Lucky Buff and without the Floating Buff while hitting no player or from Coming Out Day! It can also simply be a random event.


In the event, you can make one of the following choices:

  • Go Forward!: Gandalf the Grey moves you for 8-15 spaces with the help of Shadowfax.
  • You can use a Pocket Ball to try to capture Shadowfax after moving forward; this can fail. If successfully caught, the Gandalf event will be queued with a 3-4 turn delay. If attempted but failed, you will move 6-8 spaces back and receive the Skip-A-Turn status.
  • If you find this event while Shadowfax is in a Filled Pocket Ball, the Go Forward! option won't be available.
