Considering the very Tolkien year we have been having, with the release of The One Ring RPG, The War of the Ring: The Card Game announced from Ares Games. And who could forget about the upcoming release of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power coming at the end of the year.

Fantasy Flight Games have now released a new cycle for The Lord of The Rings: The Living Card Game, bringing the revised edition into full force. The Angmar Awakened Cycle has been reimagined, adding the second cohort of cards to the new edition with a new format of release.

Ready to be purchased at your FLGS stores, and online - the new set will be taking players into the cold and desolate lands of Arnor and Angmar. With their chance to dip into two different ways of playing. Whether you want to build your decks to create a brutal fellowship or dive into scenario after scenario, there are two ways to get involved in the revised edition.

With two different routes to adventure, via the Campaign Expansion, or the Heroes Expansion. The campaign brings scenarios to the forefront, so you can take whoever in what deck the mission with you if you. This means you will not have to buy both sets, unless you want to of course! However, if you are looking for more of a deck-building experience and want to make the dark lord's forces sweat, the Heroes Expansion for this cycle will see players with a growing bank of cards for the attack and defence.

I am really excited by the newly revised cycles, and I can imagine they will encourage more players to get involved with more options and paths to journey down. Bringing some of my favourite heroes into releases, such as Arwen Undómiel, Aragorn and Merry.

I will mention, that if you have not visited up north for your Lord of the Rings adventures, the scenarios can be quite difficult - especially with just the core box cards. This set is not going anywhere, so if you are looking to bolster your forces with a few different sets to make sure that your trip to the snowy lands of the north doesn't stomp you too much - you may want to look at a diverse team and deck.

Both Angmar the Angmar Awakened Campaign and Hero Expansions are now available for purchase in both retail and online stores.

Are you tempted to join in on the Living Card Game now that the cycles have changed to become easier to approach for new players?
