Out of stock


An ancient evil stirs in the black lands of Mordor, and the people of Middle-earth speak of a terrible doom approaching from the east. The Dark Lord Sauron is gathering his forces, and should he acquire the power he seeks, he will cast the world into eternal shadow. The only hope lies in a heroic few who must work together to stem the tide of evil…

Select your heroes, gather allies, acquire artifacts, and work together with your friends to survive 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, you and your friends take on the roles of heroes attempting to complete dangerous quests. Instead of directly retelling the classic stories that have previously been narrated, this game provides you with a variety of elements—characters, settings, enemies, events, items, artifacts, scenarios—that allow you to embark upon new adventures and share new experiences with these beloved characters during this ominous period of Middle-earth’s history.

Unlike most card games in which the players compete against each other, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a cooperative game in which you and your friends work together, competing against a scenario that is run automatically by the game. In each game, you attempt to overcome the particular encounters, enemies, and challenges of the scenario, against which you either win or lose together.

Accordingly, each player gains the freedom to choose which role he will play and how he will contribute to the group’s overall success.
