** ~ Movie Trivial Pursuit ~ ** NEW GAME : Feb 3 Can't Post

Well, another busy week on the movie board. Very busy.

I think it's worth asking if we want to continue the movie trivia while the boards are so busy.

At the moment, we've got three sorts of threads going:

  1. In depth conversations about the LOTR movies
  2. game threads about the LOTR movies
  3. Hobbit movie news and speculation

And, at the moment, we've got two regular game threads going: movie trivia and the images game.

On one hand, I think having a wide variety and range of thread topics means that a wider range of people can participate - depending on their interests and/or their availability for time commitment.

On the other hand, it can get overwhelming to have too much going on and it can mean that, perhaps, each area is getting shortchanged by the wealth of opportunities. (I am one who gets a bit overwhelmed.)

So, I'd really like some good honest feedback on how you all feel. Let me say that I am very willing to continue if that is the will of the board and I won't be at all offended if we take a hiatus. So, don't worry about me. I will also say, however, that we don't have a limited supply of questions. We will, at some point exhaust the 'usable' questions from the board game and it's not as easy to come up with new ones as one might think, especially on a regular basis. So we should spend them wisely.

I think our options are:
  1. continue movie trivia on a weekly basis
  2. put movie trivia on hiatus until a time when things slow down a little
  3. have movie trivia on a regular basis other than weekly.
  4. other?

So: what say you? Regular participants, newbies and lurkers are all welcome to chime in.

And now... the game. If you normally swipe the entire section, copy and then paste it into your reply window, you might want to read through the questions first before doing that.

1. When the Fellowship stops to rest in Balin's tomb who's carrying their torch?

2. According to Treebeard when is his "business with Isengard" Magpie notes: the board game provides 3 choices. I don't think most of us need those choices so I'm going to put them in invisible font for those who want a challenge. Feel free to highlight to see the question as posed on the card (and if you highlight this to copy and paste, you will see it):

>> today, tonight, or tomorrow? <<

3. What are the three rules of the drinking game that Gimli and Legolas play in Edoras?

4. Into how many shards did Narsil shatter?

5. What character's portrayer agreed to have his/her eyebrows shaved off to make him/her look "seriously weird"?

6. Which Lord of the Rings screenwriter wrote the lyrics to the song, "In Dreams"?
