As if your quest to save Middle Earth wasn’t already hard enough, why not delve into the depths of Mordor’s heart and make it a few levels worse? The Nightmare Decks for the Lord of the Rings LCG that were first introduced last year are expanding to bring your darkest fears forward in the the Shadow of Mirkwood cycle’s second half. The decks are The Hills of Emyn Muil, The Dead Marshes, and Return to Mirkwood.
If you are unfamiliar with Nightmare Decks, these are cards that you swap out with your standard adventure decks to increase the difficulty of the game. These often go deeper into Middle Earth’s lore and bring out the deadliest creatures and situations that are known to the regions in which you travel. The decks will even respond to your strategy, so it must be chosen wisely and at the precise moment.
More Hazards and Creatures will cross your path on your quest through the Hills, as you dredge through the Marshes, and as you dash back to Mirkwood. There are more in-depth peeks into how each of these decks are changing on the announcement page for these packs, and are worth checking out if you’re looking to challenge yourself and your fellow heroes. These decks are available now through the FFG website, or ask your FLGS to order them for you for local pick-up!
