I want to buy LOTR Card Game, but I see there are a lot of expansions to the game. Can anyone give me the order of the expansions by date.
Thanks in advance!

The Living Card Game format goes through "cycles" of monthly packs, and then often time a larger "deluxe" expansion in between cycles. With Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, the first cycle is the Shadows of Mirkwood (6 packs). This was followed by the deluxe expansion Khazad-Dum. Then the second cycle, the Dwarrowdelf cycle, started and also consists of 6 packs (Not sure if all have been released yet, they are towards the end of that cycle). Maybe a list is more useful to you:

Shadows of Mirkwood Cycle
- The Hunt for Gollum
- Conflict at the Carrock
- A Journey to Rhosgobel
- The Hills of Emyn Muil
- The Dead Marshes
- Return to Mirkwood

Khazad-Dum (Required to play the Dwarrowdelf adventure packs)

Dwarrowdelf Cycle
- The Redhorn Gate
- Road to Rivendell
- The Watcher in the Water
- The Long Dark
- Foundations of Stone
- Shadow and Flame

There is also a "Print on Demand" expansion, The Massing of Osgiliath, that contains a difficult quest but no player cards.

The next planned release after the Dwarrowdelf cycle is the "Saga" expansion, "The Hobbit: Over Hill and Under Hill"

You can see all this information along with difficulty ratings on the game's BGG page, HERE. Just scroll down to the "More Information" tab.

Base Game


Shadows of Mirkwood cycle
Hunt for Gollum
Conflict at the Carrock
Journey to Rhosgobel
Hills of Emyn Muil
