Advertisment for METW

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

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.

METW was sold in starters and boosters (no cards from other sets were needed to play). A booster (15 cards, 36 boosters per display) holded 1 rare, 3 uncommons, and 11 commons. A starter holded a fixed set (at random), 3 rares, 9 uncommons, and 40 commons.
