The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a brand new cooperative card game from Fantasy Flight Games that puts 1-2 players (or up to four with two Core Sets!) in control of the most powerful characters and artifacts of Middle-earth. Select heroes, gather allies, acquire artifacts, and coordinate your efforts to overcome the obstacles drawn from the encounter deck, and you will complete the quest before you and claim victory!
The Core Set includes 216 cards that can be used to assemble a wide variety of decks right out of the box. Included are four perilous scenarios that, along with countless combinations of settings and enemies, offer near-limitless replayability.
Additionally, players can build a party from a set of 16 hero cards, and focus their decks on any combination of four distinct spheres of influence: Leadership, Lore, Spirit, and Tactics. Each sphere offer unique benefits to the party, so choose wisely. Select heroes, gather allies, acquire artifacts, and coordinate your efforts
Why not also pre-order the first three Adventure Packs while you’re there to be sure of enjoying this exciting new game to the fullest when it arrives at our warehouse? The first series is called the Shadows of Mirkwood cycle, and it begins with The Hunt for Gollum. The elusive creature known as Gollum is hiding somewhere in the Anduin Valley, and this pack sets the stage for the coming quests by tasking players with searching for Gollum and capturing him (the overall goal in Shadows of Mirkwood). For this first quest, players are tasked with uncovering the clues in the form of the Signs of Gollum Objective cards, which are shuffled into the Encounter deck. Featuring a new hero, new player cards for all four spheres of influence, and an assortment of new Encounter cards, The Hunt for Gollum begins your dangerous trek through the Shadows of Mirkwood!
The second pack, Conflict at the Carrock, sees players venturing down the banks of the Anduin hot on the trail of Gollum … only to hear whispers of a new threat looming. A new hero joins the quest, along with three copies of nine new player cards from all four spheres, a new deck of Encounter cards, and the Conflict at the Carrock Quest cards.
A variety of new player cards offer exciting deck-building options, featuring new and familiar faces. Frodo Baggins is beginning to feel restless in the Shire, and a Long-beard Mapmaker discovers a hidden Dunedain Warning that just might help the heroes avoid defeat. The lumbering Trolls terrorizing the Beornings, and while facing them in combat is fearful enough, Sacked! cards will endanger your heroes at every turn. And watch out for Muck Adders, that will snap at your heels while you try to navigate the difficult locations surrounding the Carrock.
Finally, in A Journey to Rhosgobel, after facing a fearsome group of trolls, the heroes have pressed further into the Anduin Valley to continue their search for Gollum. However, when they stumble across a dying eagle wounded in a fight with goblins, they are compelled to offer their assistance. Since the Eagles play such an important role in the Shadows of Mirkwood Adventure Packs, players will want to retain the trust of their winged allies by saving one of their kin. In order to do so, they must bring the bird to Rhosgobel and seek out the wizard Radagast, who knows many secrets of the wild.
A Journey to Rhosgobel contains 60 fixed cards from the Shadows of Mirkwood cycle. In this exciting expansion, even more Eagles join the Tactics sphere, while Leadership players are given a Dunedain Quest that will inspire confidence in their cause. The heroes’ trek through Mirkwood leads them to Haldir of Lorien, whose unnatural agility will aid the party in their task. However, the sky grows dark with foul minions of the Shadow, and every step toward Rhosgobel causes the heroes’ avian ally more pain. There is no time to lose!
Each adventure pack contains 60 fixed cards from the Shadows of Mirkwood cycle.
