LORD OF THE RINGS LCG: Revised Core Set
Sometimes, in order to truly appreciate a tale, one must first go back to its beginning. Grand adventures and strong fellowships are important and wonderful, but the first step of any journey is just as important as the last. With that in mind, it’s time to return to the beginning of one of the most epic adventures of all…
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Revised Core Set!
With increased contents and some quality-of-life improvements, this new version of the classic LCG’s core set is the perfect opportunity for a new player to dive into the game. The box comes with everything you may need to kick off your adventures, including enough cards and components for four-player games right out of the gate. Read on to learn more about The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game and why it has been a fan favorite for over ten years!
What is The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game?
For those of you who have never played The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game before, this game is a cooperative Living Card Game set in the fantastical world of Middle-earth. Players form Fellowships that undertake epic quests, travel through perilous locations, and battle vicious enemies such as Orcs, giant spiders, and the dreaded Nazgul.
What is New?
For the most part, this product is the same The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game that countless fans have known and loved for the past ten years. The rules are the same, and almost all of the cards included in the Revised Core Set are also the same. There are, however, three types of cards included in the Revised Core Set that were not part of the original release: campaign cards, boons, and burdens.
If you already own everything from The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, you do not need to buy the Revised Core Set to experience this campaign—instead, we are pleased to announce that all campaign cards, boons, and burdens will be made freely available as print-and-play content on our website. We will also be posting the campaign rules and campaign log to the site as well, which means anyone who owns a core set for this game—original or otherwise—will be able to fully experience this new mode.
The Road Goes On
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game has been around for over ten years now, and the dedication of its fans has only proven that this game is something special. Because of this, the core set is not the only product getting a revised release; both new and existing fans can look forward to continued efforts to repackage and rerelease past popular content in the near future. Which is good news, because when the Revised Core Set arrives in early 2022, even more players will learn just why this game has stayed strong for over a decade and will remain so for years to come!
