I'm doing it, I'm doing it! Please don't call time on this yet! Pretty pretty please. Give us through the weekend please!

The trouble is, I have way too many time-consuming interests.....

No prob, I'll wait for you [] The more, the merrier, at least in this game. []

But you were right to post, since I was about to post the results soon and I hadn't chose a deadline

Hmmm ... if there's another weekend for submitting an answer, perhaps even I might find some time for one.

Don't hold your breath, though []

Sorry I missed your post ! I've been having the results done for a while, but I was still waiting for an answer to my last post. []

So there it is ! []

We had two new players for this third session The Woodwose and Sauron's Secret Agent [] I hope they will continue to play ! []
(I will post the details later today, since I have to go, but here's the scoring anyway)

0 1 2 3 4 5 6

2 1 3 1 2 1 3 Olo 36
1 2 3 1 2 1 2 DQ 24
1 1 1 1 2 1 3 WW 6
1 2 2 1 2 1 1 Arta 8
2 0 2 1 2 1 3 SSA 96
1 1 3 1 1 1 2 Ham 6

Hence :

1. The Woodwose and Hamfast Gamgee, 6
3. Artaresto 8
4. The DarkQueen Iauraearien 24
5. Olofantur 36
6. Sauron's Secret Agent 96

Not a bad performance from me at first sight! I might even have beaten Arty [] Mind, I still think having lower points winning is just weird. I can't think of many games that have this system. Golf, perhaps?

Not too bad as I didn't understand what you meant by some of the questions. []

I need to post the detail !

0) Name a constellation devised by Varda when she created the stars.

2 Wilvarin
1 Menelmacar
1 Soronume
1 Telumendil
1 Valacirca

So every possible answer has been given here, and only one was given by two of you. Good job on that !

1) Give the name of an Orc that is mentioned in The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit.

2 Ufthak
1 Uglûk
1 Golfimbul
1 Gorbag

WRONG
1 Goblin-King

As stated in the rules, when I ask for a name I need an actual name, hence "Goblin-King" is wrong. Other answers included Azog, Bolg and Grishnakh. None of you fell for the "Snaga" trap !

2) Name a dragon from the Legendarium.

3 Ancalagon
2 Scatha
1 Glaurung

The most obvious dragons (Glaurung and Smaug) were forgotten ! There were only 4 answers for this.

3) Give the name of an human (not the race) from the Lord of the Rings that has at least a line of speech in the book but that doesn't appear in any LoTR PJ movie.

1 Erkenbrand
1 Gildor
1 Nob
1 Halbarad
1 Ghân-Buri-Ghân
1 Imrahil

There was plenty of answers for this, and I have to say that I was impressed by the diversity of answers. In particular, Ghân-Buri-ghân had not come to mind.

4) Name a primary source of light devised by the Valar/Maiar that is not a star.

2 The Moon/Isil
2 Telperion
1 Illuin
1 Illuin/Ormal

Illuin/Ormal are actually 2 sources of light, but a correct answer, so I counted them as 2 since Illuin was given by someone else. Other possible answers were Anar/The Sun and Laurelin.

5) Describe a poem from the Lord of the Rings that is told by a Hobbit. Be careful to identify it properly.

1 Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go...
1 Farewell...
1 Trolls
1 The road goes ever on
1 O! Wanderers...
1 Bath song

All good, and all different. []

6) Name a character that has at least one line of speech in both LoTR and The Hobbit.

3 Gloin
2 Elrond
1 Gandalf

The poor Bilbo himself has been put aside ! I don't know if other characters that suit the question exist.

Anyway, you've been all very good at this ! I'm sorry if some of the questions are not very well put into words. Don't forget to ask any question you want about the questions before answering !

See you all next time ! []

[] I like how we all avoid the obvious answers to the point where they actually become really good answers, if only any one of us dared to give them.

Those results where we'd managed not to double-up at all really surprised me. []

E: I watch Pointless. []
