***Founders Day "Guess the Phrase Game: TORn Special" *** Can't Post

For the celebration of Founders Day, please enjoy a special round of Guess the Phrase game. A lot of the "riddles"are relating to TORn, especially the forum and it's users.

The usual rules and how to play are below.

There is also a special round. In this round, instead of using the pictures to make a name, word, place etc., the three pictures are taken from TORn and other major linked websites. From the pictures, you have to guess "where I am". (Hope that makes sense).

The rules:

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.


And in addition to previous games:

A black letter with a red cross means remove that letter from the word previous to it. Take these two for examples:

1) HAIR (H) -----> Remove the "H" to get AIR

2) FLOWER (F) -----> Remove the "F" to get LOWER


There will be 4 posts after this with 19 riddles in total. The special round has 5 "Where am I?" clues. Remember, enjoy and use your imagination!

Smile

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel

10. Jaw + D ?? Hmm. (Remembers that British way of speaking that puts "R's" where there are none.)
Geordie!! Laugh

and not pronouncing the R's when they are present. Wink Many us in the UK prob would pronounce this as either Jawdee or Jeeawdee- (unless from Scotland or N.Ireland for example)! Another UKism, which I don't really notice with other native English speakers here is using "of" instead of "have" eg Instead of using "I could've danced all night"or " I could have danced all night" you get " I could OF danced all night". Accents eh?? Makes life more interesting thoughSly
