WotC SEA Celebrates The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth MtG Set with Welcome Party

Wizards of the Coast SEA will be hosting a Welcome Party on 1st and 2nd July to celebrate the release of “The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth,” the latest set and the most ambitious collaboration to date for Magic: The Gathering (MTG), the world’s premier trading card game.

New and experienced gamers are invited to join the fellowship and embark on a magical journey into the Middle-earth-inspired world of MTG. From beginners’ sessions and mini-games to immersive Commander games, photo opportunities, and appearances by cosplayers, the MTG Welcome Party promises a range of activities that will appeal to all levels of fans.

Best of all, registration for the Welcome Party is absolutely free.


This epic celebration is set to take place at three Wizards Play Network (WPN) Premium Stores in Singapore: Dueller’s Point, Games Haven, and Grey Ogre Games. Newcomers to MTG will have the opportunity to learn gameplay basics through free mini-games and sample the thrill of an MTG adventure using a Starter Kit, complete with iconic Middle-earth characters.
