Fantasy Flight Announces New Lord of the Rings: TCG Starter Decks

Every epic journey starts with a single step. Just like that, every deck depicting an epic journey starts with a single starter deck. And four new ones are coming to the Lord of the Rings: TCG from Fantasy Flight. Get a look at these new decks in this preview.

From the article:

Every adventure begins with the first step. For many new fans of The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, the Revised Core Set is that first step. But what about the next step? Or, beyond that, what if your friend is the one with the Revised Core Set, and you want a deck to call your very own? Not to worry, because there won’t just be one deck for you to choose from—there will be four!

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce four The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game starter decks!

These starter decks are Dwarves of Durin, Elves of Lórien, Defenders of Gondor, and Riders of Rohan. Each deck is built around a different theme and playstyle, and they all can provide the perfect jumping-off point for players who want to try the game with a friend or dabble in deckbuilding beyond what is available in the Revised Core Set. In addition to having fully pre-built player decks that are usable from the moment you open the box, each of these products also includes multiple additional cards that can be used to enhance any decks you build yourself. Whether you plan to use these decks yourself or lend them to a friend who’s trying the game for the first time, there is no doubt that you will want to add these starter decks to your collection!

Note: For longtime fans of The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, if you already own all of the game’s expansions, you will not find any new cards in any of these starter decks. However, you may find it helpful to have one of these decks on hand when you introduce a friend to the game, since these decks have been tailor-made for new players.
