“Gollum is cunning, and the spies of the Enemy are many. The dark things that were driven out in the year of the Dragon’s fall have returned in greater numbers, and Mirkwood is again an evil place.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring ~
Crafted for use with The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, Nightmare Decks allow players to revisit the three Core Set scenarios cast in the shadows of the game’s challenging new "Nightmare Mode". Featuring deadlier enemies, darker locations, and more terrifying surprises, each of these Nightmare Decks introduces twenty alternate encounter cards and rules for using them to reshape the encounter deck for one of the three Core Set scenarios. The result? A nightmarish journey back to the heart of Mirkwood that will have you on the edge of your seat!
The evil things of Mirkwood have grown in power and number. Still, a few brave heroes have traveled its dark trails, crossed its enchanted streams, and fought off its foulest denizens. Now, as they journey east in pursuit of the strange creature known as Gollum, the fate of Middle-earth hangs upon their success, but the foes and challenges they must face are the stuff of nightmares…
Three new Nightmare Decks for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game are now available! Nightmare Decks for The Hills of Emyn Muil, The Dead Marshes, and Return to Mirkwood enhance their scenarios with new rules and new encounter cards that you exchange with cards from the standard scenarios.
