Middle-earth: The Wizards (METW) was the first basic set, released in 1995, for the Middle-earth Collectible Card Game (MECCG).

METW deals with the good side, and includes most of main characters from the books, like Gandalf, Frodo and Aragorn. The set features a pretty straightforward gameplay with relatively simple marshalling point cards and hazard creatures.

Middle-earth: The Dragons

Middle-earth: The Dragons (METD), released in (1996) was the first expansion set for METW. As the name implies, it deals mostly with Dragons, their treasure and the northern regions of Middle-earth.

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).
