The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game | Published 20 April 2011

“You have done well to come,” said Elrond. “You will hear today all that you need to understand the purpose of the Enemy. There is naught that you can do, other than to resist, with hope or without it. But you do not stand alone. You will learn that your trouble is but part of the trouble of all the western world.”
     –“The Council of Elrond,” The Fellowship of the Ring

Gather your fellowship – your adventure begins today. The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! This latest addition to our line of Living Card Games is a game of heroes, perilous journeys, and adventure set in the lands of the epic fantasy masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings.

The Adventure Begins

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a fully cooperative card game 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. Players will select heroes, gather allies, acquire artifacts, and coordinate their efforts to face Middle-earth’s most dangerous fiends. By cooperating to overcome the obstacles drawn from the encounter deck, you will complete the quest before you and claim victory!

In The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, players take on the roles of heroes attempting to complete dangerous quests. But instead of directly retelling the classic stories that have previously been narrated, this game provides players with a variety of elements —characters, settings, enemies, events, items, artifacts, scenarios — that allow them to embark upon new adventures and share new experiences with these beloved characters during this ominous period of Middle-earth history.

Tell an Ongoing Story

And as a Living Card Game, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a constantly expanding experience. Coming soon with the first Adventure Pack in the Shadows of Mirkwood cycle, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game delivers an ongoing narrative in which you are the hero. Check out our LCG website to get all the details of this exciting concept in gaming.

Are the cards packaged in 3x sets, or is it 1x of each?
