"Time is short. See! The beacons of Gondor are alight, calling for aid. War is kindled. See, there is the fire on Amon Din, and flame on Eilenach; and there they go speeding west."
-Gandalf, The Return of the King
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of The Flame of the West, the fifth The Lord of the Rings Saga Expansion for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game!
Brave the Paths of the Dead, battle the Corsairs at Pelargir, and stand fast against the Witch-King and the armies of Mordor during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields! Drawn directly from the key events of the first half of The Return of the King, The Flame of the West returns our attention to Aragorn, the Grey Company, and the plight of Gondor, even while the fates of Frodo Baggins and the One Ring remain uncertain.
With its 165 new cards, The Flame of the West introduces three new scenarios with a decidedly epic bent. War is kindled, and your actions will determine whether or not Gondor stands. Fortunately, you will not ride alone. The Flame of the West introduces a new version of Aragorn (The Flame of the West, 1) to lead you, as well as two new heroes, two boons, and thirty player cards (three copies each of ten different cards) divided between the four spheres of influence.
Whether you dive into The Flame of the West with only the Core Set, or you play through it as the fifth movement in your The Lord of the Rings campaign, you'll be thrilled and challenged as you race across Gondor to defend the city of Minas Tirith in its moment of greatest peril!
