Here is a fun game that I have thought up for all of us to play.
Directions: Someone mentions a few features of a particular place in Middle-earth. For instance, if you were to choose The Shire, you might say, "I'm going to a place where the Ale never runs dry and where the pipes never stop smoking."
Then someone would guess it, and most likely know where it is you were going. So all you basically do is pick a place from Middle-earth, hint something about it, and let someone guess where it is in Middle-earth you're headed.

Make sense? I hope so.

I'll start first...
I'm going the land that is the greatest kingdom of man.

johanna (johannad_m) Mmm, Gondor? Or Numenor? Oh, yes Numenor? I just googled it to make sure it was men and now elves ^^

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
First guess. (Gondor) That's where I'm going :)


message 4: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Ah, because I found this on Wikipedia:
"Númenor (pron.: /ˈnuːmɛnɔr/), also called Elenna-nórë or Westernesse, is a fictional place in J. R. R. Tolkien's writings. It was a huge island located in the Sundering Seas to the west of Middle-earth, the main setting of Tolkien's writings, and was known to be the greatest realm of Men."

But I guess Gondor is the greatest in Middle Earth ... it sounds like Numenor is west of Middle Earth :)

My turn!

I'm going to a place where a great battle was fought in The Two Towers.

Well, I found this on Wikipedia as well: Gondor is a fictional kingdom in J. R. R. Tolkien's writings, described as the greatest realm of Men in the west of Middle-earth by the end of the Third Age.

I just re-read it now and saw that it was the greatest kingdom of man in the west.
Ooops. Pardon me. My mind did not absorb that the first time.
You are right.
I was supposed to be going to Numenor.


Ah, is it Helms Deep?


message 6: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Lol! No, it's fine :)

Yep ^^ Good job.

Your turn! :D


message 7: by Lótë (Iris) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
Hmmm.... I'm going to a place where a demonic creature called 'Balrog' was found...


message 8: by johanna (last edited Apr 10, 2013 10:39PM) (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Mines of Moria? Or do you mean before that?


message 9: by Lótë (Iris) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
You are right, Mines of Moria.

Your turn :)


message 10: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) This is fun :D

I'm going to a place which was almost destroyed from the inside.


message 11: by Lótë (Iris) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
Ummmm...ehhhhh....It's not coming to me.
Hmmmm...... I dont know.
You got me! :P


message 12: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Sorry, lol, that was a hard one xD. Since I can't think of another clue for that place; it was the Shire :)

Let's see ... hmm ...

I'm going to a place where someone used to live who at one point named themselves after a sea creature.


message 13: by Lótë (Iris) (last edited Apr 11, 2013 07:38PM) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
I thought about it all night, Johanna.
My mind cannot remember this place.
You are going to some hard places that I cannot remember nor find.
I'm lost!
Haha. You got me again.


message 14: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Lol! Okay, sorry ;P I was being unnecessarily cryptic, then :P It's easy to know what it means when you've made it up lol, but not so easy when you haven't! :)

I'm going to a place which was destroyed by water.

(Same place, by the way. I'm fairly sure it's the only place ever to be destroyed by water in Middle Earth :))


message 15: by Lótë (Iris) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
It's fine :)
You're just good at asking hard questions. Nothing wrong with that.

Hmmm... Isengard?


message 16: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) :D Yes! And it was the same as the question before - Saruman used to reside there, and he afterwards went under the name Sharkey, which is taken from a sea-creature, since a shark is a sea creature ;)

I guess that was kinda tricky :P

Good job! Your turn ;)


message 17: by Lótë (Iris) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
I'm going to a place that was once named Greenwood the Great, and that lies east of the Misty Mountains' rain shadow. :O


message 18: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Mirkwood, if I'm not mistaken? :)

I'm going to a place which has seen much wealth in recent times, and over which was fought a great battle including more than two armies.


message 19: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Erebor? I think, lol. That's where they had the battle of five armies.

Perfect :) Yep, that was it. Thanks for joining, L.Y.! Welcome to the group!

Now it's your turn :) Or Lote's, or whoever wants to do one, lol.

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
I'm going to a place that used to be the site of a watchtower in the days of Arnor...


message 23: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Sorry :) I'm not that good at Tolkoen facts - wait and see if someone else can get it, though :)

Not a problem! I've got my whole family trained. In other words, I'm no longer the only one who quotes it on a daily basis. :D Glad to be here.

Lote, would you be going to Weathertop? Just guessing, lol. If I don't get it right I'm going to pull out my books. xD


message 25: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Sounds promising ^^

I would! Good job :)


message 27: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) L.Y.'s turn! :) Well done.


message 28: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Cool! Now I get to come up with something. :D

I'm going to a place that has a plant that only grows in one other place.


message 29: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Ooh. Is it ... Ooh. Lothlorien ...? Or the Shire? Because Sam's tree was a 'Lorien tree, am I right?


message 30: by Lótë (Iris) (last edited Apr 19, 2013 03:08PM) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too.


message 31: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Yup! You got it Johanna. The Shire. :)


message 32: by johanna (last edited Apr 20, 2013 07:34PM) (new)

johanna (johannad_m) :D That was a good one, L.Y.! @Lote - I think we should store up some of the best ones of these and keep them for further use ... I don't know what further use, lol, but they make a nice collection ^^

Ummm .. let's see ... Thinking riddles.

I'm going to a place in which at least one character was accused of being an orc.


message 33: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Fangorn Forest?


message 34: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Oh, and thanks, lol. I was in such a hurry to guess, I completely forgot you'd said something else. xD

We should save them...maybe someone could use them to make a LotR game. That would be cool. :D


message 35: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) That would be awesome :D

Yep, you're right :)

Your turn!


message 36: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Oh. Umm...

I'm going to a place where there are lots of bees.


message 37: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Bees ... umm ... nope. Nothing coming ^^

Lote?


message 38: by Lótë (Iris) (new)

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 207 comments Mod
Hmmm. Nope. I've got nothing.


message 39: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Really? It's in The Hobbit. Hmm. What hint can I give that won't give it away...?

Okay. Upon arrival, not every character is introduced at the same time. They're spread out. :)


message 40: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) OH! I'd forgotten :D Lol, good one - Beorn's House, am I right? :)


message 41: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Yes! Your turn. :D


message 42: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) I assume there were bees there ... but I can't seem to remember them for some reason >.< Come on, Johanna, you only re-read it the other month! xD

Okay ... hmmm ...

I'm going to a place where there was seen a deer.


message 43: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Yes...I believe they were described as being very large, too, lol. I was trying to pick something obscure this time. xD I guess I succeeded!

MIRKWOOD! Is it Mirkwood?


message 44: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) You definitely succeeded ^^ Good one!

Yes! :D Your turn :)


message 45: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Yes! I like this game. :) My first thought when you said deer was the one the one that Thranduil was riding in the movie, lol.

I'm going to a place where a conflicted character died.


message 46: by johanna (new)

johanna (johannad_m) Lol I thought that was a moose o;
Me, too :)

Erm. That's gotta be either the Shire, Mt. Doom, or the bridge where Boromir died xD

They're all conflicted ^^


message 47: by L.Y. (new)

L.Y. Levand (lylevand) | 208 comments Maybe it was a moose...it had antlers, anyway. xD

You got it. Amon Hen, lol. Where Boromir died. Your turn! :D


message 48: by Fruit Salad! (new)

Fruit Salad! (FruitSalad) Is it ok if I go?


message 49: by Fruit Salad! (new)

Fruit Salad! (FruitSalad) Actually, I don't think anyone will answer that so I will just put one up:
I am going to the home of the prancing pony.

Ps. I know it's easy but the best I could think of.
