GEMP-LOTR is an online platform allowing players from all over the world to play Lord of the Rings TCG against each other. Development began in summer 2011, soon after first beta version (including only cards from Fellowship of the Ring set) was released. Currently all cards released are available and extra features are under development. GEMP was originally hosted at http://www.gempukku.com/gemp-lotr, but is now ran by the PC at https://play.lotrtcgpc.net
Most important features
Contrary to previous LotR Online TCG platforms, GEMP is a completely browser-based game. It requires no downloads and player can log in from nearly any device that has access to Internet (including some mobile phones). Similarly to Decipher-supported Lord of the Rings Online, game rules and card effects are carried out automatically in GEMP, allowing for faster and smoother gameplay. Additionally, the game is completely free to play. Both casual games and competitive playing (in form of leagues) are supported. GEMP is currently the biggest online LotR TCG environment, with close to 200 active players.
