    Could have been better

    I like the slip-case, as it really does look like a book. Looking at it from the outside the ¿pages¿ look gold, which I thought that was a nice touch. I also liked that there¿s a way to keep it shut so the cards, book, ring, and map don¿t fall out by accident. They used a green ribbon for this that you can tie if you want it closed. The map is folded in the case, so when you take it out I recommend laying a few books on it for a minute so it can stay flat. No matter what there will be markings of where the map was folded, but that doesn¿t really make a difference. The map isn¿t very detailed, but the colors work well together. As for the cards, I liked them the best. There are 40 cards included. Some of my favorites are: The Ghost Army of Dunharrow, Old Man Willow, Mirror of Galadriel, Realm of Lothlórien, The Shire, Misty Mountains, Staff of Gandalf, and the Blessed Realms. The ring is a gold color, and has inscriptions on both sides. If you lay the ring flat, it¿s a little bigger than a quarter. It¿s also very light. Don¿t expect to be able to wear it on your hand, although it could probably fit on your pinky finger if you have small hands. If you¿re not using this set for divination purposes, you could easily use the ring as a necklace (if you get some string) and tie it around your neck. The book tells you how to use the map, cards, and ring together. Each card has its own page in the book- along with their meanings. The book also includes a short biography of J.R.R. Tolkien. Terry Donaldson, the author, also has a short section about himself. The only thing that you would need to get if you don¿t have any in your household is a piece of string. The string is used along with the ring to answer your questions about the future. Overall, I expected this to be better than it was. The cards were really the only thing I fully enjoyed. If you¿re a Lord of the Rings collector, I would recommend getting this set to add to your collection, although this definitely is not a must-have.
