War of the Ring: The Card Game

Activating Battlegrounds


In the Trilogy scenario, the battleground activated during the Location step is selected at random from those in the battleground deck of the starting player’s team.

In the rare case your own side’s battleground deck has been depleted, draw a battleground from the other side’s battleground deck. In the even rarer case where both battleground decks are depleted, do not activate a battleground during the Location step.

When a battleground is activated due to a card’s game text or activation text, do not select it at random; if more than one battleground matches a card’s text, the activating player may choose one. After you take a specific battleground from a deck, shuffle it.

There is no limit to the number of battlegrounds that can be simultaneously active.
