**Party Game: Scrambled Gifts Can't Post

Happy Hobbit Birthdays! In honor of Bilbo and Frodo, here is a Word Scramble/Scavenger Hunt.

We all know that after The Party, Bilbo left special presents to be given to certain Hobbits. Do you remember what they were? To find out, you can use the clues to look them up in the book, or have fun unscrambling the words!


1. For the Gaffer, a bottle of MINTNOTE

2. And two sacks of STOOPATE

3. And also a woolen SACATOWIT

4. For Adelard Took, an ARUMBELL

5. For Dora Baggins, a waste-paper SAKBET

6. For niece Angelica, a round convex ROMRIR

7. For Hugo Bracegirdle, an empty KOBO-ASEC

8. For Rory Brandybuck, a dozen bottles of DOL SWAYDRIN

9. For Milo Burrows, a gold pen and KIN BETLOT

10. For Lobelia, a case of silver SNOOPS
(yes, very appropriate! Laugh)

Right, I'm doing this closed-book. [In reply to] Can't Post

1: Ointment.
2: Potatoes
3: Waistcoat
4: Umbrella
5: Basket
6: Mirror
7:Book case
8: This one's got me stumped. Old ... ? Or something Dorwin?
9: Ink bottle
10: Spoons!

Thanks for the game! Although number 8's answer is going to bug me.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Glad to start out with an easy quiz! [In reply to] Can't Post

I apologize, without my glasses it was hard to see some of the letters. The good news is that without them, A's and F's look the same!

1. For the Gaffer, a bottle of MINTNOTE


MINTNOTES - they're like a cross between envelopes and sticky notes. You have to lick them to stick them, and they have a pleasant minty glue.


Quote
2. And two sacks of STOOPATE


TOOTHPASTE


Quote
3. And also a woolen SACATOWIT


SCARECROW


Quote
4. For Adelard Took, an ARUMBELL


DUMBELL - Adelard was a workout fanatic


Quote
5. For Dora Baggins, a waste-paper SAKBET


MATH TEXTBOOK - just some light reading for our favorite teacher


Quote
6. For niece Angelica, a round convex ROMRIR


ROMEO- Angelica likes 'em nice and pudgy


Quote
7. For Hugo Bracegirdle, an empty KOBO-ASEC


KABUKI MASK - Hugo is a well-know thespian


Quote
8. For Rory Brandybuck, a dozen bottles of DOL SWAYDRIN


A dozen DRUMMERS DRUMMING


Quote
9. For Milo Burrows, a gold pen and KIN BETLOT


BLANKET - for writing on those cold winter days


Quote
10. For Lobelia, a case of silver SNOOPS


SNOOPS - like opera glasses, only more discreet

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

Oh, dear! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope you don't drive without those glasses! Laugh

The Gaffer's teeth must be in really bad condition, to be given two SACKS of toothpaste!

And what a nice gift for our dear Aunt Dora. Heart

I think I once had some scratch-and-sniff minty notes...

So I totally relate to this game! ;)

Here goes...

1. MINTNOTE = ointment
2. STOOPATE = potatoes
3. SACATOWIT = waistcoat
4. ARUMBELL = umbrella
5. SAKBET = basket
6. ROMRIR = mirror
7. KOBO-ASEC = book-case
8. DOL SWAYDRIN = old winyards
9. KIN BETLOT = ink bottle
10. SNOOPS = spoons

And I didn't "snoop" at the book! This was a perfect resurrection, dernwyn. THANKS!
