The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, A New Board Game of Adventure and Heroism from Fantasy Flight Games
Jan 11, 2019
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, a fully cooperative, app-supported board game for one to five players, inviting you to become the greatest heroes of Middle-earth!
The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth lets you embark on your own adventures in J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic world, embodying heroes of the Free Peoples and fighting back against the oppressive might of Sauron. You’ll battle villainous foes, make courageous choices, and strike a blow against the evil that threatens the land—all as part of a thrilling campaign that leads you across the storied hills and dales of Middle-earth.
Each individual game of Journeys in Middle-earth is a single adventure in a larger campaign. You’ll explore the vast and dynamic landscapes of Middle-earth, using your skills to survive the challenges you encounter on these perilous quests. As you and your fellow heroes explore the wilderness and battle the dark forces arrayed against you, the game’s free companion app guides you to reveal the looming forests, quiet clearings, and ancient halls of Middle-earth, while also controlling the enemies you encounter. Whether you’re venturing into the wild on your own or with close companions by your side, you can write your own legend in the history of Middle-earth.

You may have escaped your battle with the Cold-drake with your lives, but scarcely had the beast been slain than word of an even greater threat reached your ears. A terrible Dragon roosts in the Orcish stronghold of Gundabad and your only way in is a fiendish Goblin you have taken prisoner. Now, you have no choice but to place your trust in him and set off on an uncertain path through Wilderland.
Roam Across Rhovanion, the second Adventure Pack in the Ered Mithrin cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!
Your battle with the Cold-drake in The Withered Heath has earned your company of heroes an unexpected reward: the Goblin Urdug is now your prisoner, and he claims to know of a hidden entrance into Gundabad that would make entering the fortress all the easier. Despite being your captive, however, Urdug will not part with this precious information easily. Only after you’ve helped him recover three things he lost in the craggy ravines and grey moorland of Wilderland will he lead you to Gundabad.
With Rhovanion spread out before you, the fate of your quest lies in the hands of a treacherous Goblin. The question might not be if he will betray you, but when. Still, you have no choice but to follow where he leads. Stay on your guard and head off into the wild!

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce Fire in the Night, the third Adventure Pack in the Ered Mithrin cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, coming Q4 2018!
This Adventure Pack finds you joining the Woodmen in a spirited defense of their home. Your quest had pointed to Mount Gundabad and a hunt for the Dragon Dagnir the Terrible, but now she has found you. You can only imagine the destruction she will cause if she escapes into the night. This must end now.
Unlike most other adventures you’ve experienced in The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, Fire in the Night plays out across a single Quest Card. Dagnir (Fire in the Night, 74) is a ferocious beast, and her fury has only been stoked by the death of her children. Rather than attack individual characters, then, she unleashes her wrath on the entire settlement of Hrogar’s Hill. It’s up to you to defeat her before she leaves the Woodmen’s stronghold a smoldering ruin.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that The Drowned Ruins Nightmare Deck, A Storm on Cobas Haven Nightmare Deck, and The City of Corsairs Nightmare Deck are available for order now.
Each of these carefully crafted decks are designed to enhance a corresponding scenario from The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, increasing the peril of your quests to create the ultimate challenge for thrill-seeking adventurers. With new rules, locations, and encounter cards, you can revisit the stories you think you know, now twisted and corrupted into new horrors that will make your heart pound and push your courage to the limits!
In The Drowned Ruins, you enter the Temple of the Deceived only to find that you must navigate labyrinthine Underwater passageways to reach the mysterious chest that can only be opened by the key in your possession. Holding your breath as you move between grottos, you are unable to ask for help from new allies whilst trapped in these locations, even as you suffer terrible Forced effects. But you have come too far to give in now.
After a wearying journey across the sea, battling Corsairs, Monsters, and legions of the Undead, A Storm on Cobas Haven asks you and your noble team of heroes of to lend the remains of their strength to the citizens of Dol Amroth. In a city under siege by the Corsair fleet, you must fight ship-to-ship, using every ounce of your newfound nautical prowess to gain the upper hand and defend the citizens of Dol Amroth.
Marking the grand finale of the Dream-chaser cycle, The City of Corsairs Adventure Pack sends you to sea once more, charting a course for the lands of Umbar to retrieve your stolen artifact. But the relic has gifted your enemies with unnatural power, and they are not likely to surrender it willingly. Will you be able to defeat the Corsairs on their own land and end your quarrel with them for good, or will their increased strength prove too great an obstacle after the trials you have already endured?

The fate of the world is in your hands. The Mountain of Fire Saga Expansion for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is now available at your local retailer!
An expansion of dire, world-shattering stakes and Epic Multiplayer possibilities, The Mountain of Fire carries you far from the quiet comforts of the Shire and deep into the climactic events from the end of The Return of the King and the end of Middle-earth’s Third Age.
Its scenarios lead you and your heroes from the Tower of Cirith Ungol to the Black Gate, where you’ll confront the Orcs, Trolls, and Men of Mordor. Survive your battle long enough, and you just might buy enough time for Frodo Baggins (The Mountain of Fire, 1) to cross the ash-ridden, smoke-filled wastes of Mordor and climb the slopes of Mount Doom until he stands before the fiery chasm in which the One Ring must be destroyed.

Some people might find themselves stranded in the arid wastelands of a hostile nation and rail against the fates that led them there. You? You begin the long journey north, endure the many trials along your way, and look for any opportunity to strike back at the enemy.
One of those opportunities has now arrived… The Black Serpent, the fourth Adventure Pack in the Haradrim cycle, is now available for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game!
Even while tired and hungry and hundreds of miles from the safety of Gondor, your heroes are willing and eager to temporarily set aside their thoughts of home to launch a raid against the Southron caravan that they find carrying tributes to the Dark Lord of Mordor. The element of surprise may be with them at the outset, but they’ll have to strike swiftly and true. The Southrons greatly outnumber them.

The time has come for a small band of Middle-earth’s greatest heroes to set forth on the next leg of their perilous homeward journey through the hostile lands of southern Harad… Beneath the Sands, the third Adventure Pack in the Haradrim cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!
So far, these heroes have endured a shipwreck, desert crossing, and an assault upon the village where they had been granted a chance to rest. They have made allies of a small band of Haradrim willing to resist the Dark Lord. They have traveled with these noble Haradrim into the jungles to tame the wild Mûmakil, and they have crossed the barren wastelands, racing hard to stay ahead of the band of Orcs and Wargs that nearly spelled their doom.
Now, as the Haradrim cycle continues to follow these heroes and their allies along their northward trek, it finds them in the desert once more, where the sands don’t just make for long, hard days of travel—they also conceal whole nests of deadly predators.
And when these predators strike, abducting several of the heroes’ new friends during the night, these heroes—your heroes—must act swiftly to save them. They’ll descend into an underground series of tunnels, navigate labyrinthine corridors, and fight hordes of deadly creatures. They’ll save their friends, or they’ll die trying. But either way, it will be an adventure worthy of song!
