I’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.
This 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.
