Frodo went to Mordor and brought back a....
 
Ok, the rules are simple. For those who have played 'my auntie went to London and brought me back a...' you'll know how to play, but for those who don't:

It involves the alphabet, you'd say, Frodo went to Mordor and brought back an...
apple.
The next person would go: Frodo went to Mordor and brought back...
An Apple and a Banana...

It would help if you bolded the objects. If we get to z we just go to a and carry on, one of the moderators could tell us to start over... If it gets too much.

Please have them Tolkein related.

I'll start:

Frodo went to Mordor and brought back...

Aeglos (Spear of Gil-galad)...

The Saucepan Man 07-30-2005 06:30 PM

Hmm. Not sure about this one. The point of the original game is to remember what everyone before you has said, so being able to see the preceding items on the screen would rather seem to defeat the object. But I'll let it pass for now and see how it goes down.

It should, however, be in the Quiz Room rather than Quotable Quotes, which is why I'm going to move it there.

Alcarillo 07-30-2005 11:58 PM

I'll Give It a Try
 
Frodo went to Mordor and brought back...

This won't make it incredibly hard, but how about after each item you mention where it appears/is mentioned in Tolkien's work?
ex: Frodo went into Mordor and brought back...the Arkenstone (mentioned in The Hobbit, chapter 15: A Thief in the Dark)
