MECCG, the Middle-earth Collectible Card Game, is a game that allows the player to tell his own stories within the realms of J.R.R Tolkien's Middle-earth. The game premiered in the last quarter of 1996 with the base set, Middle-earth: The Wizards. Middle-earth: The Wizards is aptly named, because as a player you will take the role of one of the Wizards, Gandalf, Radagast, Saruman, Alatar, or Pallando, sent to Middle-earth to aid the Free People's in their fight against the Shadow.

The basic concept of play in Middle-earth is that a player guides a company of characters in an effort to gather resources. While the player is traveling around Middle-earth in an effort to gather resources his opponent is playing hazards on him in order to hinder or stop the player from interacting in the world of Middle-earth.
