Build Two Towers – But not what you think

Cryptozoic-Entertainment-logoI’ve only played one deck building game, Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game, and I’ve only played that once, but I must admit it was a very interesting experience. I would have to play more deck building games to decide whether or not I like them. So maybe I could learn some more with a new release from Cryptozoic Entertainment, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Deck Building Game.

To me, the Lord of the Rings book are a very good read, a set of books that I think everyone should read at least once in their life time. The movies are, aside from a few minor issues I have with some parts, very good. This game is based more on the movies than the books in respect of the art used within the game. 

lotr_dbg_boxThis game can be played stand alone out of the box, or it can be combined with the already existing Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring Deck Building Game for a more rich and in-depth experience. There are variant rules provided to enable it, or mix and match for your own flavour.

I can only assume that a third one will be coming out at a later stage, for Return of the King. Full information on the announcement page, as per usual.
