We are big fans of chess in this house and you may have noticed we are pretty big Lord of the Rings fans too. I mentioned in an early blog post how we taught the children to play chess back on holiday in France in 2009 with a Lord of the Rings chess set-the children were not fans back then I should add. We have been looking for a new chess set for a while and we saw this one at the Vintage market in Chesterfield, the children begged me to buy it but at £25 it was a little steep and out of our budget. A week later and the exact same set came up on a facebook selling group Hubby is on for £5!! So we picked it up and guess what? The kids have played it loads...
Cordelia and Ruben actually switched off Minecraft/Howrse on the laptops to play several games against each other :-o
Feels like every time I come into the room someone different is playing it-which is brilliant of course! I have to admit I'm struggling to play with the different charcaters after only ever playing with a "normal" chess set, hubby too but the children are having no such problems.
Bargain of the week!
