I can honestly say I have never heard of the game, but it looks great. You did a very nice job on the carving of it.

That makes two of us that has never heard of the game, but i can honestly say I love the board. The legs fit the design perfect. You have a ton of woodworking eye candy all over this… I for one would like to hear more detail on what all was involved in building this.

Very cool! (even though I know nothing about it…lol)

beautiful work – I would never guess it’s plywood.

I’m a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and I really like the craftsmanship, especially the runes. Are they gold leafed?
Like Dan says ..”Lots of eye candy”.

Very, very nice work.

Superb and precise detail. Excellent craftsmanship. Very cool gift! Can’t even tell its plywood.

ah, this is a fun game. I have one that I bought a while back because it looked like it would be fun to play. It looks nothing like yours though! Yours looks very fancy and I too wouldn’t have guessed it’s out of plywood

The lettering alone must have taken hours and hours! Nice job.

We put so much heart in making this theme “Lord of The Rings. ” I made many sketches for this game. My brother is a fan of the movie “Lord of the Rings. ” so I made this theme for him.
The next project will be a rummy on theme “Star Wars”. It will be a great project. All elements of this game will be different: pieces, game board, game box, the system of opening the box, presentation of the game and more. I want to be something different from what exists on the market. Combining wood and color. All combined into a single harmony. A pleasure to admire.

I was guessing CNC :). But that doesn’t take away from it in my eyes. Great design/implementation.

Here are the simplistic rules:

How to Win: Get your token to the opposite side of the board.
How to Play: Each turn you can either move your token 1 space or place 1 wall piece to block off an opponent
Rules: You may not close in an opponent. He must have a way to get to the opposite side.

Have your say...
