IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS EXPANSION REQUIRES THE LORD OF THE RINGS CARD GAME. IT IS NOT A STAND-ALONE PRODUCT.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a print-on-demand item. Variations in printing mean that cards from Print on Demand expansions are subtly different in appearance and texture from base game cards. Therefore, any necessary base game cards (such as the “nothing of interest” Exploration cards) will be reprinted in each expansion, to retain a consistent appearance when shuffled.)
When your heroes chase after a band of Orcs fleeing into the woods of Ithilien, their hunt leads them perilously close to the hidden enemies from The Blood of Gondor Nightmare Deck. In The Blood of Gondor, your heroes are ambushed on all sides by "hidden cards," which enter your play area facedown until different effects force them to flip over. The Blood of Gondor Nightmare Deck amplifies the tension and excitement this mechanic creates, adding more effects that cause you to take hidden cards, more effects that flip them over, and a number of nasty surprises that trigger when they're flipped faceup.
Nightmare Decks for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game allow you to revisit your favorite scenarios cast in the shadows of the game's challenging Nightmare Mode. Featuring deadlier enemies, darker locations, and more terrifying surprises, each Nightmare Deck introduces new, alternate encounter cards and instructions for using them to reshape a scenario's encounter deck. The result? A nightmarish journey through territory you thought you knew, but with twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat!
