He took to thieving, and going about muttering to himself, and gurgling in his throat. So they called him Gollum, and cursed him, and told him to go far away.

The Hunt for Gollum begins today, as the first Adventure Pack for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is now on sale! Head to your local retailer today to purchase your copy.

Venture into the Shadows of Mirkwood

The Dark Lord’s strength increases and his plans near fruition; there is no time to lose. At Gandalf’s request, the heroes of Middle-earth venture to the Anduin Valley in search of clues that may lead them to Gollum.

The Hunt for Gollum provides players a brand new scenario to explore as their heroes fight new enemies and scout new locations in search of clues. Gollum’s trail can be treacherous, however, and if your heroes aren’t careful they may spend all their time pursuing false leads.

Experience the adventure

While you don’t need more than The Hunt for Gollum and the Core Set to play the expansion’s new scenario, it also begins the narrative arc of the epic Shadows of Mirkwood cycle of Adventure Packs. This first chapter sends your heroes out to find Gollum’s trail, but it’s no easy road. The Shadows of Mirkwood cycle continues the search for Gollum past the Anduin Valley, through perilous combat, to hidden locations, and even on a mission of mercy.

These monthly Adventure Packs each contain a new, unique scenario and new cards that give you greater flexibility in your deck designs. The Hunt for Gollum begins the journey, and next month your heroes will dive into combat with trolls in Conflict at the Carrock .

Don’t let Gollum slip away

Gollum is a slippery creature, and the best trackers in Middle-earth struggle to find him. Don’t let him elude you. Head to your local retailer today.

Players will select heroes, gather allies, acquire artifacts, and coordinate their efforts to face Middle-earth’s most dangerous fiends.
