***Guess the Phrase Game: The Fellowship of the Ring Edition*** Can't Post

For the celebration of the 60th Anniversary since the publication of The Fellowship of the Ring, please enjoy a special round of Guess the Phrase game. All of the riddles relate to the book.

The usual rules and how to play are below, but you can find previous games here, here and here if you want to try out some others first.

The rules:

The aim of the game is to guess the character, location/place, chapter title, 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.

There will be 3 posts after this with 17 riddles in total. Remember, enjoy and use your imagination!

Smile
