Ghan-buri-Ghan, Chieftain of the Woses (P) (0P56) Wiki

General Strategy

Ghan-buri-Ghan, Chieftain of the Woses is an interesting promotional card.

While you can spot two other Men, Ghan-buri-Ghan cannot be overwhelmed unless his strength is tripled. Perhaps as an oversight [or at least an interesting coincidence], Ghan-buri-Ghan does not specify between Free Peoples and Shadow Men. Additionally, Ghan-buri-Ghan receives a defender bonus at forest sites.

As a Gandalf Man, Ghan-Buri-Ghan can bear Beorning Axe, Armor, Heavy Chain, and Coat of Mail [though the latter does not benefit Ghan-buri-Ghan while three Men are in play].

While released during the Movie Block, Ghan-buri-Ghan does not benefit from any forest sites in that format. In unofficial “standard” or “open” games, Ghan-buri-Ghan gains access to several Gandalf skirmish events and pumps.

As it stands, Ghan-buri-Ghan is not legal in any play format and rarely sees time in casual play.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strong Versus...

  • Natural defender bonus at forest sites
  • Strong against Shadow Men, which can activate the overwhelm prevention text
  • Can bear Beorning Axe

Weak Versus...

  • Not legal in competitive formats
