Lord of the Rings Collectors Chess Set

Updated on February 8, 2015

Collector's Chess Set by the The Noble Collection

This rich, exquisite and yes "precious" Lord of the Rings Collector’s Chess Set contains a map of Middle-earth, which is mounted below the playing surface. The base contains images of the most memorable characters and scenes from the film. The board measures 15 by 15 by 4.5 inches. The top of the board is plexi-glass with the rest of the board made out of cold cast porcelain.

This has been placed on my wish list of unique and collectable gifts. An ideal gift for my husband, because it takes skill and patience to play. Patience in not a word in my vocabulary, but I would love to own this chess set for it’s beauty and fine crafted playing pieces.

This is a chess set that can be treasured for many generations.

Every detail is authentic, richly realistic and true to the Academy Award winning epic film.

The 32 playing pieces are precise miniature sculptures in fine pewter of the actual cast members and each likeness is so realistic-they were personally approved by the individual actor.

An epic storyline, and a gifted writer! The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien is adeptly suited to the chessboard in this attention getting 4-1/2" theme chess set. In the magical land of Middle-earth, Elves, Men, Dwarves, Hobbits, Orcs, and many other creatures dwell; good against evil is the constant struggle, and Tolkien has chronicled many years of these wars.

This theme chess set depicts characters from the War of the Ring, near the end of Tolkien's famous works, and particularly details many of the characters involved in the Ringbearer's Quest. Frodo Baggins, Sam Gamgee, the Dunedain Aragorn, the Lady Arwen of the Elves, and the whole cast of evil geniuses engage in combat in the greatest thinking game of all time!

The War of the Ring encompasses several milleniums, from the time the One Ring was forged in the forge of Mount Doom by the evil Lord Sauron, with the secret inscription of, "...One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them..." Sauron deceptively forged the One Ring in secret, to rule the three rings of the Elven folk, the seven rings of the Dwarf-Lords, and the nine rings for the Men, which he had all made and deceived their owners as to their true purpose.

The film series of the Lord of the Rings covers the End of the War of the Ring, in Sauron's last rising, and the events leading to the destruction of the One Ring, in an exciting and action filled film, highly acclaimed by all critics.

Zoom into this chess set to see the detail of the characters.
