Okay, then I'm getting some new questions ready. [] I'm trying my best to find easier questions, so that you could at least try and answer them without having to look up details in books. [] Of course, books might still help finding hidden answers, though []

I realized that I made a mistake while doing last session's sums... []

It should read like this :

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

1 1 1 1 0 3 1 1 Art 12
1 2 1 3 1 3 1 2 Olo 36
1 2 1 3 2 3 1 1 DQ 36
1 1 1 3 2 4 0 2 pi 96
0 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 Hamfast 320

Not much change, really. []

Maybe - if both the power and the connection and the laptop are cooperating [] (and there isn't too much else that ought to be done - I haven't even read the questions so far [] )

I gave every answer without looking in any book. If all are right, I'm not sure, but I would say the questions were simple enough and with an adequate set of alternatives.

I don't know the Histories well enough to do that, I had to research a little bit for some questions.

Time for results ! Thanks all for participating [] []

0 1 2 3 4 5 6

3 1 1 2 1 1 2 Art 12
3 1 1 1 3 2 1 Olo 18
3 1 1 1 3 1 2 DQ 18
3 1 2 1 3 1 0 Éomer 48
3 2 1 2 1 6 1 Hamfast 72
3 2 2 0 1 2 1 pi 96

Not much change since last time... Artaresto won again, and Olofantur and DQ both are in a tie for second. Yomer slips in then, and pi is last this time - he was mostly unlucky.

Now for the details :

0) Name one of the five oldest members of the Fellowship of the Ring.

3 Gandalf
3 Gimli

Out of 5 possible answers, only two were given. [] Well, at least everyone scored the same in that question. [] The other correct answers were Legolas, Aragorn and Frodo.

1) Name the answer to one of Bilbo and Gollum's riddles in The Hobbit.

2 Time
1 Wind
1 Ring
1 Sun on the daisies
1 Teeth

Unlike the previous question, a lot of different answers were given for this one. [] Fish was also a valid answer.

2) Name one of the Valier that is the wife of a Vala.

2 Vána
1 Yavanna
1 Nessa
1 Estë
1 Elbereth

Same thing here. The only other possible answer was Vairë.

3) Name a named character of The Lord of the Rings whose death in witnessed by a member of the Fellowship of the Ring and described in the narrative.

2 Boromir (Aragorn)
1 Saruman (Hobbits)
1 Grishnákh (Pippin, Merry)
1 Denethor (Pippin, Gandalf)

Wrong :
1 Halbarad

The easiest answer was given twice. Wow those Hobbits really saw a lot of people die. Other correct answers included Gollum and the Mouth of Sauron. Halbarad did indeed die at the Pelennor Field battle, but his death wasn't described, only mentioned.

4) Name a dwarf with whom Bilbo travelled in The Hobbit that died before the Fall of Sauron in 3019 TA.

3 Fíli
1 Balin
1 Oin
1 Ori

Why Fíli and not Kíli ? [] This game is weird. The obvious Thorin has been avoided as well.

5) Name a War against Morgoth that happened in Beleriand.

2 Dagor Bragollach/Battle of Sudden Flame
1 Dagor Aglareb
1 Nirnaeth Arnoediad
1 Dagor-nuin-Giliath
1 War of the Jewels

Since the War of the Jewels describes the ensemble of different wars against Morgoth after he stole the Silmarilli, it was counted as a less precise answer and thus given the score of 6. All the correct answers have been given ! Okay, there wasn't that many []

6) Name a river whose course is entirely enclosed in Eriador.

2 Lune/Lhûn
1 Thistle Brook
1 Brandywine
1 Greyflood

Wrong :
1 Carnen

There was a lot of possible answers here, although Carnen was wrong since it is flowing in Rhovanion. I had never heard of Thistle Brook before this game. [] The Greyflood (Gwathló) is one of the borders of Eriador, but I decided it was still correct. Other possible answers were : Glanduin, Water, Withywindle, Bruinen, Stock Brook...

Thanks for playing, everyone, and see you for the next game !

Gah, I actually typed Kíli first, then changed my mind and switched to Fíli! [] And I thought for sure that more people would have picked Legolas or Aragorn for #0. []

And I had bit of a blond moment (what? I'm from Rohan! [] ) when I picked Carnen for #6. In my rush to get my answers in, I forgot that you'd specified Eriador and thought you'd said Middle-earth. []

Why Fíli and not Kíli? Because they're Fíli and Kíli, not Kíli and Fíli. []

Still, that was fun (even if I did think of the most obvious dwarf). I nearly said Legolas for oldest members, but I wasn't SURE of his age and thought it better to go for something safe. I also thought Aragorn was too obvious. Bah. [] The twists and turns of this game! []
