I've recently started collecting the Eaglemoss Lord of the Rings chess set, but I've realised that they haven't yet released all the pieces. Does anyone know anything about the release dates?
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

WOW, it looks really good! []

Anyway, Eaglemoss in South Africa at least, was rubbish. Their things were hardly ever on time and most often damaged. I hope it works out, the chess board at least is gorgeous.

I am such a sucker for chess boards. I adore beautiful chess sets, but sadly, I suck as a chess player. partly, I suppose, due to my impatience and thinking far too many moves ahead. []

From what I've learned in chess, it isn't thinking so many moves in advance, it is knowing what you can do at all, as well as recognizing opportunities that present themselves. Oh yes, it is also about the avoidance of presenting the other person opportunities.

If you can do that,then you can beat alot of people.

Bah, I have right about given up on chess. On PC, I am very good at strategy games, even turn based ones, but I suck at chess. I know what all the units can do, but because I think so far in advance and I am impatient, I normally do a few moves ahead of where I am - which is why I lose. []

Evidently you aren't good enough to think several moves ahead. Change your approach. Play each move as if the board has totally changed. Play in the moment, not what you think the board will look like in the future.

I know I'm no where near being able to predict what an opponent is going to do, certainly not 2 or 3 moves into the future. Evidently neither are you.
