The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth
Friday, 16th June 2023 (7pm)
In-store prelease events are sealed deck, where each player builds a 40+ card deck from the cards in the Prerelease Pack (plus any basic land cards that they require). Each prerelease kit also includes a brief ‘How To’ guide for anyone not already familiar with the format. Players are then paired up for 3+ rounds of head-to-head play.
Prerelease events are designed to be fairly casual and players are free to modify their deck throughout the event (between games) but only with the cards contained in their own packs. No trading until afterwards.
Each pack costs £30. Each event lasts for 3-4 hours (deck building + 3 rounds of up to 50 minutes each).
The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Prerelease Pack:
- 6 The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Draft Boosters
- 1 foil, year-stamped Rare or Mythic Rare
- 1 deck box
- 1 spindown d20 die
Each The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Draft Booster contains 15 cards, with a combination of 1 card of rarity Rare or higher and 3 Uncommon, 10 Common, and 1 Land cards. Traditional Foil of any rarity replaces a Common in 33% of boosters.

FOOD & DRINK
Clifton Road Games do not provide or sell food and/or drinks on the premises, but customers are welcome to bring their own.
Newtown Stores is just up the road (on your left as you exit the shop), The Clifton Inn has an in-house bakery, as well as their regular pub menu, and is also just up the road (on the right as you exit). Exe Coffee Roasters are across the Triangle Car Park (opposite the Pyramids Leisure Centre).
We generally advise that gamers take specific breaks for food and drinks, rather than snacking throughout. It’s safer for the games components.
Customer toilets are available. Note that these are wheelchair accessible but not fully equipped as disabled facilities (ie. they do have extra space for a wheelchair and low hand basins; they don’t have hand rails or emergency assistance alarms).
