Nicely played, my friends!


  1. At least I got 7/10! But alas, my LOTR knowledge is a tad rusty. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to reread all the books now. ;D

    1. Evangeline, you could also just listen to all the songs on YouTube a lot. Or, you know, do that while re-reading the books.

      Not that I've ever done that. ::hums an innocent tune::

  2. Good job everyone! I could probably have figured the 5th one out, but it's been to long since I've seen the movies, so I didn't want to risk it. :)

    Fun game, Hamlette!!

    1. MC, glad you liked watching even if you didn't play! Sometimes that's lots of fun too.

  3. I so enjoyed this game especially because I love all the songs to these and know them by heart.

    ...except Gollum's Song, obviously.

    Fun game and overall fun week, Hamlette! By next year's Tolkien week, I will have read the books. :D

    1. Elanor, I'm glad you had fun! Hope you get to read the books soon :-)

  4. boy if I didn't have a habit of listening to Peter Hollens LOTR album, I don't think I would have did too well on this game! Awesome game, Hamlette!


    1. Catherine, I was just listening to Peter Hollens' album yesterday! So good.

      Glad you liked the game!

  5. This was fun, and challenging!! Now I have an excellent excuse to rewatch the Hobbit films. :D

    1. Marian, glad you enjoyed it! And yes, I've really been craving a re-watch myself.

  6. Awesome game, Hamlette!!! Loved playing it. Great work, guys! XD
