War of the Ring: The Card Game: Against the Shadow

Product Code: AREWOTR102

Inspired by the best-selling and award-winning War of the Ring board game, War of the Ring – The Card Game immerses players in the quest of The Lord of the Rings. The game allows them to explore their own version of the trilogy, using uniquely designed card decks representing the strengths and weaknesses of the peoples and characters who fought in the War of the Ring.

Its first expansion, Against the Shadow, enables players to experience the adventure alone or cooperatively. The player(s) control the Free Peoples, using the normal rules and cards included in the War of the Ring – The Card Game.

Automated players control the Shadow, using the new decks, which entirely replace the cards included in the core set and which are tailored for solo/cooperative play. In conjunction with a simple flowchart, the new Shadow decks provide a sophisticated challenge for one or two players.
