** World Hobbit Day ** The Hobbit Trivia Quiz! Can't Post

Hello and welcome to The Hobbit book trivia quiz in celebration of it's 75th publication birthday!

There will be two parts to the quiz: Part 1 (today) and Part 2 (tomorrow). To answer the questions you simply need to have read (and remembered the details of ...) The Hobbit! You definitely don't need to be a Tolkien scholar, though some of them are tricky. You're welcome to have the book at hand if you wish.

To add an element of competition, points will be handed out for correct answers. You may get an extra point for creativity. But remember not to post your answers in the subject line.

Enjoy!

5. What word reminds Gollum of his Grandmother?
6. What is the answer to the riddle: “This thing all things devours: birds, beasts, trees, flowers. Slays king, ruins town, and beats high mountains down!”
7. What were the troll's names that the company encountered?
8. True or false? One should never say the word muff in Beorn's presence.

1. Who is the only female character named in The Hobbit?

Lobella Sackville-Baggins

2. Which Dwarves died in the Battle of the Five Armies?

Thorin, Fili, Kili, and hundreds of un-named ones.

3. Which 5 Armies took part in the Battle of the Five Armies?

Oooooh, a subject of much debate! My answer: Dwarves, Elves, Humans, WargOrcs, Eagles

Or is it: Dwarves, Elves/Humans, Eagles, Orcs, Wargs?
Or: Dwarves, Elves/Humans, Eagles, WargOrcs, Bats?
Or: Dain & kin, Thorin & Co, Elves/Humans, WargOrcs, Eagles?
Or: Bilbo, Gandalf, Dwarves/Elves/Humans, WargOrcs, Eagles?
And what about Beorn?

And exactly which Two Towers did Tokien mean, anyway?

4. How high was Dwarves' secret door?

18 hands. We just don't know whether those hands were hobbit, elven, dwarf, troll or stone giant. We're reasonably sure they aren't bat, eagle or thrush.

5. What word reminds Gollum of his Grandmother?

We eats it whole!

6. What is the answer to the riddle: “This thing all things devours: birds, beasts, trees, flowers. Slays king, ruins town, and beats high mountains down!”

I don't have the time for thinking much about this quiz.

7. What were the troll's names that the company encountered?

Rock, Cliff and ol' Stoney. At least, that's what they went by in their later years.

8. True or false? One should never say the word muff in Beorn's presence.

True. Beorn is a big 49'ers fan, and after a muffed punt killed their chance to play in the Super Bowl last year, the word makes him incredibly distraught and angry. Although unlike many other more orc-like creatures, he never issued death threats to the player on Twitter. Let's all take a moment to think good thoughts about our admins who beat the bounds in a world where THAT happens on the same internet TORN resides on.

9. What was gifted to the King of All Birds, and his 15 chieftains?

Golden collars

10. What is the colour of Bilbo’s front door?

Green

11. Which character said: “If we don’t get blown off or drowned, or struck by lightning, we shall be picked up by some giant and kicked sky-high for a football”?

Thorin

Notta


Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

We should have these more often :) [In reply to] Can't Post

So, it's been a couple years since I've read the book. This could be a train wreck! Unimpressed

1) Belladona Took
2) Fili & Kili (Thorin died after, so I'm not counting him)
3) Erm... Elves, Dwarves, Men, Goblins, and Wargs? I always get confused because there's bats and eagles, too.
4) 5 feet
5) eggs?
6) (give me) Time!
7) Tom, Bill & Burt, I think.
8) I don't know...false? Why would it matter if one said muff?
9) Gold crown? or necklace maybe?
10) Green (going by the LOTR movies...)
11) No idea. Balin?

Extra Round: Is this a legit question!? Shocked

Well this will be zero for one. Dis?

2. Which Dwarves died in the Battle of the Five Armies?
Fili and Kili (mourn), and Thorin.

3. Which 5 Armies took part in the Battle of the Five Armies?
I never get this right: Elves, Dwarves, Men, Wolves and Goblins. I think.

4. How high was Dwarves' secret door?
Very.

"Eggses."

Heck, I wouldn't say that in front of my mother.

Extra Round:

Yeah, I might just skip that extra round!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Don't worry about it. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a quirk of international variations in language. For example, North Americans happily root for a team - which has an entirely different meaning down here! :D

BTW is 'muff' in The Hobbit? (It really has been a very long time since I read it.)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Best I can do without referring to my book. Honestly. [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Belladonna Took, Bilbo's mother
2. Thorin Oakenshield and his nephews, Fili and Kili
3. Wargs, Goblins, Elves, Dwarves, and Men of Laketown
4. Five feet high and three may walk abreast
5. He sat on the water's edge and taught his Grandmother how to suck: Eggses
6. Time, time, time!! (he got lucky)
7. Will, Tom and some other guy that I can't remember. Maybe I can get half credit! Unsure
8. True. Never remind Beorn that animals get eaten. Or turned into furniture and clothes.
9. Golden crowns
10. Green
11. Bilbo, I think.

No extra round for me. Did you really count how many times their names occur? You should get out more, DanielLB.

"Yes", said Ma. "I'm thankful that so far they don't happen to us."

I'll give it a try. [In reply to] Can't Post

Closed book, and it's been a while since I read it, so it will be interesting to see how much I remember!

1. I can't recall if Lobelia Sackville-Baggins is actually named. Somehow, I think she isn't until the first chapter of FOTR. If not, it would have to be Gollum's grandmother.
2. Thorin, Fili and Kili.
3. Five armies: Dwarves, Elves and Men vs. Goblins and Wargs. The Bats, Eagles, and Beorn get no credit because they forgot to RSVP.
4. Five feet high, and four can walk abreast. I think. Which, when you think of it, is a very unspecific dimension. Perhaps dwarves are really supposed to be as wide as they are tall, in which case it would be a most peculiarly-shaped door. I do hope the filmmakers have carefully thought this out. Wink
5. Eggses! Sucking eggses. Ahhh, good times! Tongue
6. Time.
7. Bert, Bill, and Tom.
8. Yeah. Wasn't "tippet" mentioned in there too? You have to watch that these common words don't keep creeping into your conversation. Probably best not to mention lamb chops either. I wonder what Beorn fed his dogs?
9. The King got a golden circlet like a crown and the chieftains all got gold chains around their necks. It all sounds highly inconvenient for flying creatures. It would be terribly embarrassing if one's crown fell off while diving to catch prey, not to mention the snickers of the younger Eagles if you landed in a tree and got your gold chain of office stuck around a branch....
10. Green.
11. Hmm. One of the dwarves, I think. I can't remember which, though, so I'll just go with Thorin.

Extra Round:
Approximately, eh? Just how approximate are we talking? Ah well, wild guesses it is, then!

A) Bilbo 217
B) Gandalf 143
C) Arkenstone 28
D) Thorin
62

Hmm, I'm going to say true.

7. True of false? Thranduil’s Halls are located in the East Bight of Mirkwood?
I don't remember any very specific location. The river Running runs through it (or under it), that's all I know.

8. What are the last word(s) in The Hobbit?
The last spoken words are "Thank goodness!" said Bilbo...and then he reaches down his tobacco jar.
(Which really ought to set to rest all this silly arguing about pipe"weed").

Huh. Berries, I think. I don't remember quantities, but I'll say 6.

Hmmm....Balin or Dwalin? I'll say Dwalin. And he has....a blue beard? I never remember exactly.

No, I think it was Fili and Kili.

George Allen Unwin, publisher of the Hobbit! (Very clever, Precious!)
