so with talk of dead forums about…i know this is nothing new, but i thought id try to inject a little activity…..with a word game. this thread is just to see if there is interest. if there is ill go ahead with it, if not then no bother….its not everyones idea of something to do

the word game i had in mind is the following (cant remember the name sorry)…i had the game about a year ago on here

example

my clue = meteorology head

answer = weathertop

clues must be tolkien related

any takers?

rich

Sure, I play but I foresee I shall suck my socks off at this. And I'll probably have to think hard to make a riddle.

the first part is borrow i'm guessing, and then that makes me want to say "Barrow-Wight", but then the "Lake" part keeps throwing me off. Hmm…


Playing an intense scenario, on the last stage, right when you notice you've been playing with two Bofurs the whole time.

youre correct on the first part, as for the second think near moria

(i actually think it may be just a UK english word im using here, though it does feature in the fellowship of the ring…though tolkien was also english….)

Ohhh! Mere! Of course. I kept trying to think of it too technically, like "Borrow" and something else would form an actual word, not just sound like a word. But I see now.

Moments ago, I finally could think of one, I was going to ask it even though I had never guessed any, I wouldn't have asked any otherwise I feared…

… so I was gonna write: fortune + end + mathematics operator; I thought it was clever, only to see it asked and aswered as I opened the thread… well congrats!
