Here is the most up-to-date version of the Arda rules:

Middle-earth “Arda” Shared-deck
(A MECCG Game for using one shared play deck between two or more players)
Rules 2.5
Created by Joe Bisz


First, you must design one MP deck, Play deck, and Roving Character deck. Pick from different rarities of cards and only pick cards that would seem potentially useful (and exciting!) in a game, no more than 2 or 3 of each, use differing artwork when possible. Remember that people like looking at the beautiful artwork and interpretations too. A map and a full site deck is necessary. Ideally the site deck should be arranged in 9-pocket sheets by site type or area of map so that the new player can EASILY look at and choose sites to go to. I would STRONGLY recommend using the “optional” rules below for where you can play items if playing with new players—this greatly simplifies one of the most time-consuming aspects of the game for new players (if you don’t use the rules you’ll regret it!). The Wizard errata helps encourage more exploring of particular card themes.

Game Setup
- One shared “MP deck” (non-character cards worth Marshalling Points) that you never draw from unless resolving your MP hand.
- One shared “Play deck” (resources and hazards) that you do draw from.
- One shared “Roving Character deck.”
- One shared “Minor Item deck.”
- Playing with more than 5 players is not recommended (unless you use “Simultaneous Active Turns”; see below) since there will be too much time between your active turns. One player might also choose to play a minion challenge deck and sit between the players and interact with them normally. Non-active players should plan out the sites they will travel to before it is their turn.
- START OF GAME: Each player draws 5 cards from the MP deck and 8 cards from the Play deck, then picks their Wizard. Next, players draft from individual random pools of 10 characters (from the Roving Character Deck) and 4 minor items (from the Minor Item deck). Start the game with your Wizard in play at Rivendell.

Game Rules
- During the organization phase, turn one “Roving Character” face-up. He may be brought into play by any player as if in hand. When there are as many Roving Characters face-up as there are players, discard the earliest revealed character at the end of the current organization phase.
- Company limit of 3.
- Unless it’s your turn, you may “free trade” an equal amount of resource or MP cards with a player.
- If enough players are present (more than 4), you may designate two simultaneous active players to speed up resource play.
- At a Dragon’s Lair site, you may play any item playable at the site instead of the ‘free’ minor item.
- Mechanics that affect “hands,” including the end-of-turn discard, may affect either the Play hand OR the MP hand. Resolving hand size affects both. The maximum Play hand size is 8, and the maximum MP hand size is 5.
- Standard Multiplayer Rules: Roll dice to see which player begins his turn as the active (resource) player. After his turn, the new active player is the person sitting clockwise to him. The only hazard player that draws cards is the one sitting clockwise of the moving player. When this hazard player is finished playing as many hazards as he likes, he may “pass” (this reduces the hazard limit by one) to the next inactive player sitting counterclockwise, who becomes the new hazard player and may resume playing hazards, until he “passes,” etc. until there are no hazards left or all hazard players pass consecutively. Permanent-events, long-events, and all other “global” events affect all players. All players may discard one card during any player’s end-of-turn phase. If you have 20 MPs you may call the Council without exhausting the shared-deck. Each other player gets one more turn. The doubling of your MP based on a MP type only applies if none of your opponents has a card in play of that type.

Card Errata
- Gandalf: May tap to test a ring; you may roll twice and add 2 to roll. +1 to corruption checks (+3 if from his spell).
- Saruman: May tap to take a spell from the discard pile. In his company: Any character may use a Palantir, and each Palantir may be untapped once per turn.
- Alatar: May draw 1 additional card for each Coastal Sea or Dark-domain in his site path. If a hazard creature is played on another of your companies, may “teleport” at any time to join that company and face 1 strike.
- Pallando: +1 to your hand size. During your organization phase, opponent must reveal two hazards from hand (or else whole hand).

Optional Rules
(These rules are well-suited for introducing new players to the game, since it eliminates the need to study many sites at once to determine item playability. Trust me, new players HATE this!)
- Greater items: are playable at Shadow-holds (except Goblin Gate) or Dark-holds; or a Dragon’s Lair in Withered Heath.
- Major items: are playable at Shadow-holds, Dark-holds, or Ruins & Lairs (but not in Rhudaur or Arthedain).
- Information events: are playable at Ruins & Lairs and Minas Tirith.
- Gold Rings: are playable at Dragon’s Lairs; or Ruins & Lairs that are in Anduin Vales, Brown Lands or a Coastal Seas region. Also playable at Goblin Gate.

Optional: Simultaneous Active Turns
Active players must always be separated from each other by two hazard players, unless one player is ‘Hiding’ for that turn (doing nothing). This is so that a given hazard player does not need to be playing hazards on TWO active players at the same time. It’s not necessarily less interactive, even though players will only ever interact with the 2 players adjacent to him (left and right), because normally an inactive player will not get a chance to play many hazards anyway.

Playing simultaneous turns with 4 people is perhaps not recommended for Shared-deck because in order to avoid a hazard player having to play hazards on 2 resource players at once, you would have to assign only ONE hazard player, which means the assortment of hazards thrown at a resource player would be possibly pretty weak.

With 6 people, create 2 simultaneous active turns at once (so the two current resource players will always be separated by 2 hazard players). *Using this method, a given player would get TWO resource turns for every round of 6 turns (as opposed to ONE resource turn for every round of 6 turns).

With 5 people, create 2 simultaneous active turns plus a ‘Hiding from Sauron’ player who takes no actions for the current turn. The Hiding Player alternates each turn. Be sure to start the game with the Hiding Player positioned next to a Resource Player, so next turn the old Resource Player will become the new Hiding Player (this prevents a player from going 2 turns without getting to move his companies). There will still always be two hazard players flanking a resource player as long as you remember to skip over the Hiding Player when determining which hazard player is “adjacent.” Although it might seem like the Hiding Player is losing out on a whole turn of player, in actuality he is only missing out on a turn as the hazard player, and since often inactive players at the end of the line of “passes” don’t have much to do anyway, the benefits of two resource simultaneous turns would seem to outweigh this negative (if its even a negative—some players would see it as a ‘breather’!) *Using this method, a given player would get TWO resource turns for every round of 5 turns (as opposed to ONE resource turn for every round of 5 turns).

Also as I believe it should pre-contructed (so my challenge-decks) for the dream cards events as "contructed" would imply that people acctually build their own decks.

Well maybe you had that in mind, I was just wondering
