Mines of Moria was primarily distributed in 4 different products:
- Fixed 60-card Starter Decks (with 2 starter-exclusive Premium cards and 3 random rare cards)
- Random 11-card Booster Packs
Foil cards were distributed randomly in booster packs, and were also distributed as Tournament Prize Support. Tengwar cards were distributed in The Fellowship of the Ring Anthology.
There are two different Starter Deck products: the MOM Gandalf Starter Deck featuring Gandalf, and the MOM Gimli Starter Deck featuring Gimli. You'll see a picture of Gandalf or Gimli on the front of the corresponding tuck box.
Each starter deck contains:
- 1 Frodo companion card,
- 1 The One Ring card,
- 9 site cards,
- 2 copies of a special Premium card as featured on the deck box (Gandalf, The Grey Pilgrim (2P122) or Gimli, Dwarf of the Mountain-race (2P121) )
- 47 mixed common and uncommon cards.
- 3 random Rare cards
- A Starter Rulebook
Starter decks for Mines of Moria were only printed in English. International versions of these starters were not printed, and instead the Common print sheets were modified so that non-foil versions of the Premium cards could be inserted into booster packs. Non-foil versions of these Premium cards were not distributed through Booster Packs in English, except for the Foil versions which could be randomly inserted as an Common.
Individual Starter Decks retailed for $10.99. The Starter Deck Display box came with 6 of each starter deck for a total of 12 starter decks, and would retail for $131.88 (i.e. exactly 12 times as much as a starter). Starter deck boxes themselves came in cases of 6 per case.

Booster Packs are the primary intended way of collecting cards from a set. Every pack contains 11 cards: 1 Rare, 3 Uncommon, and 7 Common cards.
On average, one in six packs (~17%) will have a diffraction Foil card replacing one of the common cards. The drop rate was rolled once per rarity, meaning that a pack with 1, 2, or 3 foils is possible, as follows:
- 1 Common foil every 13 packs
- 1 Uncommon foil every 18 packs
- 1 Rare foil every 26 packs
Boosters were produced in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Polish.
Individual boosters retailed for $3.29. The Booster Display Box came with 36 packs, and would retail for $118.44 (i.e. exactly 36 times as much as a single booster). Booster boxes themselves came in cases of 12 per case.
