hi,
What is the correct way to play this card?
If the players have crossed the anduin, does this location get +3 threat while it is in the staging area or as only when it is an active location? What happens if there are more than 1 card of this type in the staging area?

The threat of a active location is (generally) irrelevant, so the text is affecting the card in the staging area. If there are two copies there, each card gets +3 threat soblue

Thx for the reply,
So, The text on most of the location cards refers to the staging area- right?

If it doesn't state which, then the text of a card like Captured Watchtower and Emyn Arnen Overlook applies whenever the card is in play, whether in the staging area or the active location.

Compare the card Morgulduin which specifies that its effect applies only when it is the active location.

Of course, as noted, the threat increase to Captured Watchtower is only relevant to play when it is in the staging area, but technically speaking it still has the extra threat when active too.
