The Lord of the Rings (LotR), the Card Game is a cooperative, Living Card Game (LCG) published by Fantasy Flight Games. One – two players (or up to four, with two core sets) take control of powerful characters and artifacts. Players will gather allies and coordinate efforts to take on the biggest threats to Middle-earth.
The Black Riders is the third Saga expansion for the LotR LCG. Saga expansions allows you to play scenarios adapted directly from the narrative told by Tolkien. In The Black Riders, you will find three scenarios based on the first half of The Fellowship of the Ring. These scenarios can be played individually, or linked together, to form a campaign. The campaign can be continued with The Road Darkens saga expansion – which includes scenarios that span the second half of the novel.
This expansion contains 165 cards including five heroes: Fatty Bolger, Merry, Pippin, Sam Gamgee, and Frodo Baggins. Join Frodo and his companions, as they learn of the Ring of Power and the desperate struggle to control it. Take your heroes from the safety of the Shire, tread a path in the footsteps of Bilbo years before. Journey to Bree and beyond, toward an encounter with the Witch-King and the Nazgul at Weathertop.
Note: This product is not a standalone product. Players will need a copy of The LotR card game: Core set in order to play. A copy of The Road Darkens is not necessary to enjoy this expansion – but the two have been designed to be played as one combined campaign.
