Join us this Saturday at 6:30PM for a Middle-earth adventure like no other! We're celebrating the release of the much-anticipated Lord of the Rings crossover set with a special global effect and point system inspired by the iconic "The One Ring" card. (Please note, the Lord of the Ring set does not release until next week)
Bearer's Burden: In the spirit of the One Ring, we're introducing a new global effect, the Bearer's Burden. At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player may choose to bear the burden. If they do, they lose life equal to the number of cards in their hand and then draw two cards. If a player does not choose to bear the burden, they must skip their draw step. However, if they do skip their draw step and have no cards in their library, they lose the game at the beginning of their next upkeep.
This effect is meant to capture the essence of the One Ring - powerful, but not without its risks. Choose wisely and remember, the fate of Middle-earth is in your hands!
This week, we're offering special points for the following achievements:
Ring Bearer: Embrace the spirit of Frodo Baggins and bear the burden during your turn. (+1 Limit 3)
Hobbit's Resilience: Demonstrate the perseverance of our favorite halflings and end your turn with 7 or more cards in your hand. (+1 Limit: 3)
Gandalf's Guidance: Channel the wisdom and might of Gandalf the Grey by casting a spell of 5 or more mana cost. (+1 Limit: 3)
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday for an epic adventure through Middle-earth. May the luck of the hobbits be with you!
