Earl Lee.


2. Give two reasons why Gandalf gave a 'hard rat-tat' on Bilbo's door the afternoon of the Unexpected party.

3. Trolls detest Dwarves unless they are in what condition?

Well-groomed and wearing duct tape.


4. Who was Bilbo's grandfather?

That’s exactly what his grandmother’s husband wanted to know!

Sailor Jack and his box of caramel coated popcorn and peanuts.


6. Whose guard-watch did Bilbo take so that he could sneak away from the Front-gate?

8. Where was Sting made?

In London in 1977 where he joined Stewart Copeland and Henry Padovani to form The Police.

Cinnamon trolls, Kaiser trolls, and trollhouse cookies.

12. How many trees did the Company climb into to escape the wargs?

As many as they could.


13. Name the five armies in the Battle of Five Armies.

The left army, the right army, the Orkin army, the calimary, and Bob.


14. Name the three animals that served supper at Beorn's house.

Alferd Packer, Hannibal Lecter, and Sweeney Todd.


15. What was the main entrance to the Halls of Erebor called?

The Escape Hatch. (In retrospect a poor choice.)

The murderer!


17. Why was Gandalf on friendly terms with the Lord of the Eagles?

They were just good friends.


18. Give three names for "Orcrist".

Dewey, Hackam, and Howe


19. Who was the last Dwarf to arrive at Beorn's house?

Final Lee.


20. What part of Smaug's plunder did Bilbo take?

All the candy doubloons, which oddly enough accounted for 90% of the treasure.

******************************************
Queen Beruthiel, Queen Beruthiel, there's no one like Queen Beruthiel,
She's broken every Gondor law, she breaks the law of Earendil.
Her powers of feline-ation would make Aiwendil stare,
And when you reach the scene of crime - Queen Beruthiel's not there!
You may seek her in the Hallows, you may search throughout the square –
But I tell you once and once again, Queen Beruthiel's not there!

*whew* There's hope, eh? For our games as well... :D [In reply to] Can't Post

I've found that even if we don't have big turnouts of responses, that doesn't mean people aren't having fun with them. I observe the hits on posts more than actual responses. Same with my TIME/BS/Walk to Rivendell responses. I always smile when I see that they're being looked at... even if it's by only a few.

Never Fear! Sibbies are here (and LOADS of visiting lurkers that never register ;) *fondly waves hi!*
