Take on the role of Frodo, Legolas, Aragorn, or their heroic allies in the struggle against forces of the Dark Lord Sauron! You begin with basic combat maneuvers, add new, more powerful cards to your deck as you go with the goal of defeating deadly forces that serve Sauron as you make way towards Mount Doom. The player with the most Victory Points from cards in his deck wins the game.
Each player starts with basic 10 card deck and draws a hand of 5 cards each turn. Power is the currency you will use to buy new, stronger cards to add to your deck. The goal is to craft your personal deck into a well-oiled machine. There are 5 different types of cards that can be required: Enemies, Allies, Artifacts, Maneuvers, and Locations.
To bolster their deck of cards, players use Power to acquire cards from "The Path", a large central stack of cards that supplies a 5 card line-up from which players make their purchases. Each player will always have 5 face-up cards to choose from each turn, so every turn there are new options and surprises. The Game also introduces an all-new feature: THE WALL. Can you protect the wall at Helm's Deep from the Armies of Mordor?
When a player has amassed enough Power, he may defeat more powerful enemies from the "Archenemy" deck, represented by notable enemies from The Two Towers. When an "Archenemy" is defeated, a new one appears and makes an Attack against each player in the game! Players defend themselves with Defense cards.
The objective is to acquire "Victory Points" at the end of the game. Nearly every card acquired has a "Victory Point" value, the "Archenemy" cards providing the most Victory Points. The player with the most Victory Points from the cards in his deck wins the game. The game is a complete game on its own, but also compatible with The Lord of the Ring: The Fellowship of the Ring Deck-building game.
