Gaming (of sorts): LOTR Board Game - Xoanon @ 11:00 PST
From: Geenius at Work

Reiner Knizia, a titan in the German board game design industry, has designed a "Lord of the Rings"-themed game. The game was recently announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany. Available details are limited: The game will play on four boards, each corresponding to a location in Middle Earth where the story's action takes place. Chris Lawson, a friend of Knizia's who is often involved in the play-testing of his games, announced on rec.games.board: "Like the film that is currently in the making, it is going to be very dependent on personal taste. We all have our own preconceived ideas, and 'Lord of the Rings' is no exception. But (places 'smug' hat firmly on head) having play-tested the game a lot, I think it does retain the theme and will keep the fans happy."

The game is being produced by German board game company Kosmos under the title "Der Herr der Ringe," and it's due to hit shelves in Germany in October 2000. In the United States, the game probably will not be available through mass-market channels: "hobby" games, such as the recent bumper crop of German imports, are typically sold only at specialty retailers and online. No price has been announced, but similar imported games are priced at US$40 to US$60.

Knizia is a highly respected and prolific game designer whose "hits" include Modern Art, Samurai, Through the Desert and Euphrates & Tigris.

From: Kevin L

I'm a member of the SFBC (Science Fiction Book Club). in the most recent issue of their monthly newsletter, they stated that they plan to offer a 3-in-1 Omnibus edition of Tolkien's LORD OF THE RINGS, and they even showed a preliminary sketch of the cover art. Sadly, I do not have a scanner, or i would have scanned the image.

UK LOTR Box set in Radio Times - Xoanon @ 09:10 PST
From: Matt

Hey, just picked up this weeks Radio Times in the UK ( it has Ardal Hanlon on the cover) inside they have an offer on the new release of the BBC radio production of LOTR. It costs 79.99 and you get the whole series on 14 cds in a swish leather case (it's on Amazon.co.uk if you want to take a look). If you order via this RT offer you also get "The Hobbit" on CD plus a special CD featuring an hours worrth of music from the series. It looks really nice!! It's also on tape for 50. I've never heard this production (well, never been able to afford it is closer to the truth) but apparently it's one of the best you can get. :)
