Search

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

Search is an unloaded keyword that appears on Shadow conditions and events in Fellowship Block and The Two Towers. The cards appear in Culture Isengard.svg Isengard, Culture Ringwraith.svg Ringwraith and Culture Sauron.svg Sauron cultures, and often exert companions, cancel out Stealth cards, or make it difficult to play many companions. Search cards are often associated with Tracker minions, especially with the Culture Isengard.svg Isengard conditions in The Two Towers.
