LOTR Chess Set Pictures - Xoanon @ 14:21 PST

NewLine is now advertising a LOTR:FOTR chess set on their web site.

I picked up the chess set while in London a couple of weeks ago. So, here are some pictures of the pieces, and one of the board.

The NewLine picture shows a great shot of the board, but I'm sending along pictures of all the pieces, front and back.

Here's the URL for the chess set at the NewLine shop:

Chess purists please confirm this - should the board be rotated a quarter?

I thought the white square (Heroes) has to be on the bottom right corner, which would mean the the pieces can't be played as shown.

(sigh) my ten-year-old nephew knows more about this than I do...
