Name two ways Elrond and Túrin are related (one on their mothers' sides and one on their fathers' sides).

Elrond's father's father was Turin's cousin.
Elrond's mother's father's father's cousin's daughter was Turin's mother.

Oops, forgot Idril, and you are of course right. Take it away!

How are Elrond's own children related to him, except their relationship as sons and daughter, of course!

Hummmm..NightKnight, could you explain that. I am having trouble seeing the relationship that way. I am seeing it a different way...but, I might be missing something.

Well, Galadriel and Turgon were first cousins. That makes Idril and Celebrian second cousins, and Eärendil and Arwen/Elladan/Elrohir third cousins. And then Elrond is their third cousin, once removed. Some of the phrases might be wrong, but I think I've got it right.

Ah, I can see it that way too now.
The answer I was looking for was 'fourth cousins'. Elrond was a fourth cousin to his own children as follows:
1st cousins: Luthien and Earwen
2nd cousins: Dior and Galadriel
3rd cousins: Elwing and Celebrian
4th cousins: Elrond and Elladan/Elrohir/Arwen

Following the line as you did shows that Elrond and his grandson were also four th cousins!

Do you suppose that all the inbreeding is what caused their ears to be pointed?

Since your answer is correct, it is your turn!

That's it! You've solved it!

How were Merry and Pippin related?

Cheers.

What is the most distant way that Merry and Frodo are related?

(I hope this is at least remotely hard - it's getting tricky to come up with good questions for this game. )

All the hobbits are related somehow. The most distant way would be several pages long.
