The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game tasks players with completing quests by leading a band of three heroes through various locations, completing objectives and defeating enemies along the way. A player’s deck consists of 30 cards, comprised of attachments, events, and allies. The cards that you can include in your deck are determined by your heroes’ identities. There are four spheres of influence—Leadership, Tactics, Spirit, and Lore—and if your hero belongs to one of these spheres, you can add cards of that type to their deck.
The players lose the game if all of their heroes die or if their threat (determined by the heroes in the campaign and increased by Sauron each round) reaches the maximum threat level.
In The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game, there are essentially only two phases—Planning and Adventuring. The AI handles the duties that come with operating the game and controlling the scenario, including playing cards from Sauron’s deck and using enemies to engage the heroes. The players are freed from controlling the operation of the game to focus on the choices they make with the cards in their hand and their characters on the field.
The result is fast, focused gameplay. The structure of The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game leads to a lot of improvisational tactics, as well as some more meticulous planning and plotting. Players can focus their mental energy on their own decisions, as the AI keeps track of the nuanced rules and gameplay restrictions.
