A Middle-earth Logic Puzzle Can't Post

This one's not too hard...go on, give it a go!

When Gandalf made his dramatic appearance in Goblin-town, laying flat dwarves and goblins alike, his big bad Gandalf magic went a little awry. When the dwarves staggered back to their feet, Nori tossed weapons one at a time to each of five dwarves. Unfortunately, Nori’s aim was poor and each weapon wasn’t necessarily caught by its original owner! But then, thanks to Gandalf’s wonky magic blast, each of the five dwarves turned to battle goblins but instead ended up slaying a different foe – thus completely rewriting the history of Middle-earth.

Can you figure out the weapon that each dwarf caught, the order in which he caught it, and the enemy that he slew?

Dwarves: Bofur, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Thorin
Weapons: Bombur’s soup ladle, a pair of axes, a bow with a quiver of arrows, a mattock, and Orcrist
Enemy: Smaug, Bolg, Azog, Sauron, Great Goblin

1. Four dwarves, in consecutive order of catching their weapons from first to last, are the one who received Orcrist, Bofur, the one who caught Bombur’s soup ladle, and the one who slew Bolg.
2. Dwalin caught his new weapon immediately before the dwarf who caught the mattock but immediately after the one who finally offed Sauron.
3. Thorin (who, alas, is not the dwarf who slew Azog) caught his weapon immediately after Fili.
4. The dwarf who deprived Bard of his heroism by slaying Smaug caught his weapon immediately before Fili but immediately after the dwarf who caught the bow and quiver of arrows.



Remember to keep answers out of your subject lines! Have fun, and I'll post answers when I get a Round Tuit.
