**World Hobbit Day** Guess the Phrase Game! Can't Post

Hello and welcome to a very special round of "Guess the Phrase" game in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the publication of the book we all love.

The aim of the game is to guess the character, location/place, or part of a well known sentence/poem, from the picture riddles. Some of them are (very) easy - you just have to literally take the pictures as the actual words (see example below). Some of the riddles require thinking outside of the box, or having an imagination (adding “ing” onto the end of words, for instance). Likewise, the riddles do not contain (common) words like: the, of, and, a, to, are ... and so on, so bare this in my mind.

I have tried to make them so that if you can guess at least half of the pictures, you should be able to deduct the rest. You may need your book handy for the more difficult ones.

Here is an example (in case all of the above has just gone “whoosh” over your head):



Answer below
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Reading this literally, one would get | BARRELS | OUT | (james) BOND |. After a bit of thinking, you will eventually get “Barrels Out of Bond”, which, as we all know, is a chapter in The Hobbit.

Understood? Good! I’ll start posting some of the riddles below. They’ll be separated into several posts, just to keep within TORn guidelines. Each post will have a mixture of easy (*), average (**), and hard (***) picture riddles.

1. hmm. this one is marked easy but I'm struggling. Bill Gates + bow tie - I'd go with Gates but that doesn't get me closer to solving - OH, d'oh. Bill + bow - Bilbo. haha.

2. thirty white horses upon a red hill - ('upon' may not be precise - this is one of the riddles, the answer being: white horses = teeth and red hill = lips/mouth)

3. Dol Guldur

4. haha... shape shifting Beorn

continuing my amazing winning streak here... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Smart-bow -- The new and improved weapon they will be giving Legolas in the Hobbit films
2. At the Sign of the White Ponies by the Red Hill -- It's been a long time since I read the books, but I'm sure that's in there somewhere...
3. Curtsey! Duck! Door! -- Bilbo's famous words as he leaps over Gollum to escape...
4. Colors shifting bugs Jar Jar Binks - you left off the other jar and some kind of bink thing, but I still figured it out...

Or the answers might be Bilbo, I have no clue, Dol Goldur and Shapeshifting Beorn...Smile

5. The words "I AM", and that's a magnifying glass, not a couple of key rings!
"I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly."

6. uh...still working on this one...

7. Neck? Throat? Shoulders? Boat? Row? Man? See? Neck-row-man-see...Sir!

fun round 2 [In reply to] Can't Post

5. Woah... is that first image a country specific clue? Well, Sting + fly seems straight forward. The icons I recognize are browser icons. Scissors... or cut? I think the second image is a magnifying glass. The first, other than 'sign' or 'emblem' or 'logo', I have no clue about.

could the browsers indicate web?

___ + ____ + web + cut/scissors + Sting + fly

had to look it up. It's one of Bilbo's 'riddles' for Smaug: I am the clue finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly.

clever.. but one definitely had to remember that taunt to get the answer.



6. clap, snap, black, crack (is that the crack from Doctor Who? If so, I should get extra credit). Keep in mind I have not read The Hobbit in quite a few years. But I can remember this phrase, although I'm not sure where it's used or if 'black' is correct. Was it in the goblin cave?


7. neck + row + man + sir (clever on there) = Necromancer


8. Misty Mountains (I think I have this image of the foggy tree somewhere on my computer)

four more somethings! [In reply to] Can't Post

5. Aim, Chain, Logos, Scissors, Sting, Bug! -- The hobbit version of Rock Paper Scissors
6. Two hands beats one, one hand beats no hands, no hands beats...uh..no sun? -- nice try on trying to finish Bilbo's third riddle, but really, there was a reason Tolkien rejected that one...
7. Throator Menonly Sirpeter -- Smaug's real name, but no one ever uses it
8. Foggy Mountain Breakdown -- you forgot pictures for the breakdown part, but I'm glad to help you out there...

I liked Necromancer and Misty Mountains the best on this one -- especially since those are the only ones I actually got! The rest are just a good cover for my ignorance!

fun round 3 [In reply to] Can't Post

well, I'm not doing too badly for not having read the book recently but I'm struggling a bit.

9. is River's Run (or some version of that) in the book?


10. flower, petals, + not sure what that could be. Google image search says it's the United Nations Security Council
okay... White Council?




11. Five + feet + hands/span + door + three (although it took me a minute to recognize it as something other than an abstract figure) + walk/step + udder (under).
This sounds familiar - probably the measurement found on the map for some door or opening into the mountain.

Looking it up: "Five feet high the door and three may walk abreast."

uh... 'high five' into 'high' was stretching it a little, imo. Definitely had to know the quote to get the answer.


12. Burglar Baggins - although you needed a plural indicator here on 'inn'. :-)



13. Arkenstone - although you have a plural when you wanted a singular on 'stone'. :-P


I think you would have enjoyed TORn's Cryptic Crossword Challenge. I've never had so much fun as working on that puzzle with a friend of mine.
