    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    What has changed?
    The new basic game of The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a revised new edition of the popular classic that is fully compatible with all previously published expansions.
    The new box contains enough game material to take on the scenarios directly with up to 4 players.
    A few revisions have been made in the new edition, for example there are markers with the values 3 and 5. There are 3 new types of cards: Campaign, Favour and Burden cards. These cards can be downloaded from our website as a print-and-play version after game release. There are also campaign rules and a campaign logbook, which we will also make available for you to download on game release.

    Who is the target group for the new edition?
    For new customers who do not yet own a basic game.

    I already own the old basic game, do I need the new box?
    No, this box is aimed entirely at new customers.

    Can I play the new edition with old expansions?
    Yes, the new edition is fully compatible with all previously released expansions.

    Can I play future expansions with the old basic game?
    Yes, they will be compatible with the old basic game.

    When the first announced the repackage/rerelease the other month they had pretty much said that. Which is the reason I am looking forward to this as I never got into it originally and would like to now.

    Good to hear as I only started playing the game a about four months ago and I’d hate to be tempted into getting the new set.

    This is a classy move by them, far better than I expected. I love the LOTR card game and being able to get the new stuff on Print and Play rather than having to buy  everything over again is really nice… and makes me want to buy the new stuff to support them. What is wrong with me?!?!
