“We sought for Gollum down the whole length of Wilderland, without hope, and without success. But at last, when I had given up the chase and turned to other parts, Gollum was found. My friend returned out of great perils bringing the miserable creature with him.”
    –Gandalf, The Fellowship of the Ring

Retailers: Build your local player base with Season Three 2013 Game Night Kits for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, now available for pre-order through our B2B store or your distributor!

Along with a custom playmat, rules sheet for an optional tournament format, and promotional poster, these kits offer three more “Nightmare Decks,” with which players can increase the challenge of their games. Each twenty-two card Nightmare Deck is designed to add new terrors and surprises to familiar scenarios.

What’s a Nightmare Deck?

As many retailers may remember from the previous seasons of The Lord of the Rings Game Night Kits, Nightmare Decks present players the opportunity to revisit past scenarios cast in the shadows of a challenging new Nightmare Mode. Featuring deadlier enemies, darker locations, and more terrifying surprises, each of the Game Night Kit’s three Nightmare Decks introduce twenty encounter cards and instructions for using them to reshape existing encounter decks. The result? A nightmarish journey that will have players on the edge of their seats!

These Nightmare Decks will be available as Print on Demand expansions in 2014, after the Game Night Kits rotate out of circulation. Until that time, they are exclusive to our The Lord of the Rings Game Night Kits and can help you turn your store into a hub of adventure and excitement! Please note: The cards in this kit are produced through FFG's Print on Demand process, and as such, they may appear slightly different in color and texture from the game's other cards, and we strongly recommend that players who use these cards sleeve their encounter decks with opaque or art sleeves.

What’s in the Season Three 2013 The Lord of the Rings Game Night Kit?

Each Season Three 2013 The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Game Night Kit comes with materials built to support players in their nightmarish new adventures in Middle-earth:

  • Three new Nightmare Decks, each with twenty-two cards: The Hills of Emyn Muil, The Dead Marshes, and Return to Mirkwood
  • A custom playmat featuring artist Magali Villeneuve’s stunning depiction of the Elven archer, Legolas, in action
  • An eye-catching promotional poster
  • Optional tournament rules with a competitive team play format
  • An informative pamphlet with instructions for running your Game Night
