Expansion sets

Middle-earth: The Dragons

Middle-earth: Dark Minions

Middle-earth: Dark Minions (MEDM), released in (1996), was the second expansionset for METW. It adds many powerful hazard cards including more Undead and introduces the agents - a subtle group of Sauron's servants, concentrating on intrigue and influence. Also adds an underground network of site cards, The Under-Deeps, which later becomes The Balrog's realm (for MEBA).
