Yay! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What color is the big banner that says "Happy Birthday Bilbo" at the party?
The banner is cream with, I think, dark blue or black writing.

2. What color wax does Gandalf seal the envelope with the Ring before giving it to Frodo?
Red!

3. What color flights are the arrows the Elves shoot at Helm's Deep?
Flights? Flets? Fletches? I'll go for the white (if we're talking about the feathered bits).

4. What color cloak does Haldir wear at the Battle of Helm's Deep?
Red!

5. What color cloak does Éowyn wear in the Houses of Healing?
Er... let's go for grey. Or white. Final answer: White.

6. What color is the door Sam closes at the end of ROTK?
Yellow.


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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Last week I did well with guessing, so I'll try again [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What color is the big banner that says "Happy Birthday Bilbo" at the part?
I guess cream, or off-white. No, cream is better.
2. What color wax does Gandalf seal the envelope with the Ring before giving it to Frodo?
Red, I think. But I would likje to see the will, with it's seven signatures of witnesses in gold ink.
3. What color flights are the arrows the Elves shoot at Helm's Deep?
I don't know. White or yellow would make sense at night, as a sort of marker (like armies today use red-tipped bullets). But I can't remember noticing any colour. Maybe blue? I'll guess blue.
4. What color cloak does Haldir wear at the Battle of Helm's Deep?
Here comes the part when I wonder wether to make a rude remark, instead of an answer. But I don't know, either. In the books, Legolas is described as clad in green and brown, so that would be logical; but the Lorien cloaks are grey in the films. I'll try grey.

5. What color cloak does Éowyn wears in the Houses of Healing?
I'll go with deep blue, because that is the colour of Finduilas' cloak Faramir brought for her in 'The Steward and the King'. It would be a great homage, and if I were the producer, that's what I would do.

6. What color is the door Sam closes at the end of ROTK?
Brown, I think.

Someone I met at work discussed something which had to do with colours. He said: "Being male, and Jewish - I know nothing about those things; but it works". Being another, I concur.

PS. It's fun to be able to edit after seeing what other people answered. Well, assuming they know their movies - I didn't do as well as last week. Never mind.

Oooooh, tricksey.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I assume I am not supposed to do any *research* to achieve my answers, so here goes:

1: Cream

2: Brick red

3: Ummm... white? (Don't know how you could see them at night otherwise)

4: Maroon

5: Dark blue

6: Yellow

7: What colour did my face turn while trying to think of the answers? Crimson.

research: [In reply to] Can't Post

I think most people around here approach quizzes and games as closed books BUT I'm an ex-educator and I always feel anything that makes you research an answer is like sneaking vegetables into a dish. It's a good thing.

So for this qame, because I am the quiz-mistress, you can go closed book (movie) or research -- whatever rocks your socks. You can do it one way first, and another way second (although, there's really only one order that makes sense). I would just suggest if you research your answer that perhaps you declare doing so.

For me, if I can only answer from memory, I'm sunk. I don't pride myself in my memory. I pride myself in being able to knowing how to retrieve and find information I need. So I can't even participate in most closed books quizzes and games. It's much more fun, for me, to research an answer. Researching is a game in itself.

my color-blind answers.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I am sure that this is going to be another not-a-perfect-score week for me, but here goes!

1. What color is the big banner that says "Happy Birthday Bilbo" at the part? White, I think with black letters? I can perfectly picture the happy hobbit lady who is shown applauding when it gets put up, however, does that get me any bonus points?

2. What color wax does Gandalf seal the envelope with the Ring before giving it to Frodo? Red

3. What color flights are the arrows the Elves shoot at Helm's Deep?
Plaid? You know, like in Spaceballs when they go so fast they go to plaid? I think it was an homage by Jackson to Mel Brooks...

4. What color cloak does Haldir wear at the Battle of Helm's Deep?
Red and silver maybe? Sorry, but it's not usually his cloak I look at in his scenes....

5. What color cloak does Éowyn wears in the Houses of Healing?
Dark blue, but I only know this from the book...who looks at cloaks when you have Faramir on screen, especially in this scene...sigh....

6. What color is the door Sam closes at the end of ROTK?
Yellow, I think...though if my mascara runs when I'm crying it's brown...

Thanks -- this was a fun approach!

Reminds me of a T-shirt [In reply to] Can't Post

my hubby has. The front is several rows which list colors - and all the colors are printed in the color they aren't. The task is to try to read the T-shirt out loud!

All answers are, of course, best guesses...Evil

1. What color is the big banner that says "Happy Birthday Bilbo" at the part?
White, with black letters

2. What color wax does Gandalf seal the envelope with the Ring before giving it to Frodo?
Red

3. What color flights are the arrows the Elves shoot at Helm's Deep?
Um...Dark? Is that a color?

4. What color cloak does Haldir wear at the Battle of Helm's Deep?
Bluish silver

5. What color cloak does Éowyn wears in the Houses of Healing?
Deep blue

6. What color is the door Sam closes at the end of ROTK?
Green

And his cloak of many many colours... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What color is the big banner that says "Happy Birthday Bilbo" at the part?
All the colours of the rainbow (and then some)
2. What color wax does Gandalf seal the envelope with the Ring before giving it to Frodo?
Pink.
3. What color flights are the arrows the Elves shoot at Helm's Deep?
Red, Blue and Orange. They were trying to lighten up the drearyness of the fortress. Men, they have no sense of style!
4. What color cloak does Haldir wear at the Battle of Helm's Deep?
Every colou under the sun. I mean, Saruman pulled it off against black, but against stone and rock? I mean, how's an Elf supposed to accessorise in monochrome?
5. What color cloak does Éowyn wears in the Houses of Healing?
Black... She was the original Goth... Apart from Gothmog, who was None More Black...
6. What color is the door Sam closes at the end of ROTK?
Yellow. And the rot was green. And the woodworm holes were brown. And the handles were brass. And the hinges were rusty... Tolkien loved his descriptions, but by the end, Allen and Unwin's editor had really lost the will...

"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both."

Colourful! [In reply to] Can't Post

These are (mostly) all guesses - I'm hopelessly unobservant about stuff like this... Blush

1. What color is the big banner that says "Happy Birthday Bilbo" at the part?

Yellow


2. What color wax does Gandalf seal the envelope with the Ring before giving it to Frodo?

Red


3. What color flights are the arrows the Elves shoot at Helm's Deep?

Silver


4. What color cloak does Haldir wear at the Battle of Helm's Deep?

Deep red/purple


5. What color cloak does Éowyn wears in the Houses of Healing?

Dark blue (pretty sure about this one - because it's in the book!)


6. What color is the door Sam closes at the end of ROTK?

Yellow (sure about this one - the little low door to number 3 Bagshot Row, with its faded paintwork, is clear in my mind...)



...and the sails were drawn up, and the wind blew,
and slowly the ship slipped away down the long grey firth;
and the light of the glass of Galadriel that Frodo bore
glimmered and was lost.

3. Ehhh.... uhhh... gold, IIRC. Maybe green? Going with gold though. *shrug*

4. ... red? I remember something about him being red.
