  1. Thank you for the fun game!! It was so fun to taks part!!!

    1. Thanks for playing, MovieCritic! I'm glad you had fun :-)

  2. Oh, this was a very fun one too! (They all were, GAWSH. You sure know how to party. ;D)

    Haha, and I didn't even do too bad! Although why is it I remember things as soon as I see the answer? :P And then kick myself and think, "Duh, you SHOULD have known that! What were you THINKING?!" But no, it was a challenging game and I love a challenge!

    P.S. I think one of the many reasons of my getting ANY answers right, other than reading the books and watching the movies, is that I've played a large amount of the LOTR trivial pursuit (which is SO good, may I just say) and honestly, it tests your knowledge to the limits. How else would I know who's the tallest of the hobbits, what Gandalf's sword's name is, and how many times Gandalf whacks Denethor with his staff? :P Trivial pursuit is always about such serious, life changing stuff, I know. But at least it makes me FEEL smart. Hehe.

    1. Miss Meg, I LOVE the LOTR Trivial Pursuit game! We've owned it for years, but only played it a few times because we don't have a lot of LOTR-loving friends who live near enough to play such games together. (And how many times DID Gandalf whack Denethor? Not often enough, methinks.)


What do you think?
