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!
After sailing across trecherous seas and escaping a jungle infested with the Undead, you have finally reached the Temple of the Deceived only to discover that there are yet more obstacles standing between you and the mysterious chest you seek. In The Drowned Ruins Nightmare Deck,the water is quickly rising, threatening to drown your heroes before they can complete their quest. New monsters lurk beneath the surface in previously undiscovered Underwater locations, and the dead refuse to remain at rest. New rules and encounter cards keep you in a constant state of peril, creating the ultimate adventure for Middle-earth's most daring adventurers.
Nightmare Decks are available via FFG's In-House Manufacturing and may differ subtly in appearance and texture from Core Set cards. Players are encouraged to utilize opaque or art sleeves while playing in Nightmare Mode.
