Nintendo Switch: The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game – Definitive Edition

We haven’t had a lot of videogame coverage here to date, but there are crossover games to movies and TV shows from time to time (see: Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues Videogame Coming in October) which warrant coverage. Maybe we’ll establish some sort of FIRST LOOK type thing for videogames. Call it WISH LIST or something? Any suggestions welcome in the comments.

Anyway, we have enjoyed playing games for 30+years. Me? Since Pong, so that takes me way, way back. Like retrogaming on steroids.

The console-portable hybrid system we play most currently is the Nintendo Switch, although we do own a PS4 and Xbox One which have better graphics and systems that are more powerful. They aren’t even hooked up to a TV at the moment (long story). We are also playing a lot of the Ultimate Legends Arcade system (see: Arcade and Console Videogaming Heaven – Legends Ultimate Arcade), which lets us access all sorts of arcade and console games on a standup cabinet.

Eventually, when we can find one in retail stores normally, we’ll probably pick up the newest Xbox and PS5. It’s not a priority.

We also enjoy board games and card games. Lord of The Rings on Nintendo Switch has a card game that looks interesting and made our wish list and purchase for $19.99.

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game – Definitive Edition includes: – Two additional campaigns: The Shadow’s fall & The Witch-King’s Grasp and their respective heroes. – A brand new mode: the Mirror of Galadriel which lets you test your deck in randomly generated quests. – The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game’s current owners will get the Definitive Edition for free. Build a deck of iconic Heroes and challenge the forces of Sauron in this thrilling tactical card game. Go forth and explore famous locations, complete story-driven quests, and forge your own legend of Middle-earth. But beware the Eye of Sauron—should you draw his attention, all will be lost…

Played it only a couple times so far. Graphics are excellent but I get the sense I’d rather play the card game with cards and a board game than as a videogame.

Any other console or retrogamer readers? What movie or TV-related games have you enjoyed playing?
