    Wait, IS this playable?? If it is can u teach me?

    • It is. I developed some alternate rules to use with those Tolkien cards. It works much like Magic The Gathering, but dice are used as well and I created some strength/weakness combos for some specific cards according to the mythos.

      I like to create games and alternate rules for existing ones. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid. Unfortunately, I have the bad habit of NOT writing the rules and ideas I come up with. Sometimes, I tend to forget them and need to rethink everything again. Those Tolkien cards were created in 2007 and obviously, some rule details are a bit obscure even for me, the creator. It’s a pity, but it’s true. That’s me….some potential creativity but with a bit of laziness attached to it!
