Gandalf The Grey

From Board Game Online Wiki

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.
