yes, Aule-master of crafts, it was Bilbo's eyes. Gandalf says this when Bilbo is the only who notices that a bear has been following them while borrowing Beorn's ponies. Your go.

How old was the Old Took when he died and how old was Bilbo when he sailed away. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

The Old Took was 130 when he died, and Bilbo was the same when he sailed, I believe.

No, not completely. The Old Took was 130, but the day Bilbo and Frodo sailed to the Grey Haves, Bilbo turned 131.

Quote:
Then Bilbo woke up and opened his eyes. 'Hullo, Frodo!' he said. 'Well, I have passed the Old Took today!'

Oh my goodness! At first I put 130 and 131, but then I changed it! Oh well. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Ok, this might be an easy one if you know exactly where to find it. What was the first thing that Pippin and Merry said to each other when they met for the first time after the battle with the Nazgul Lord? (I am looking for 2 lines here.)

Oh, I thought it meant it had to be about Hobbits. Cause the last question was from ROTK wasn't it? Ok, what's the deal?

That last question had a little to do with The Hobbit because it asked what age Bilbo was when he set off on his journey. The rest of the question was from Rotk, though. So technically, that was not a good question to ask:

Quote:
This is a thread strictly for trivia questions concerning The Hobbit. Knowledge of Tolkien's other works should not be necessary to answer any trivia in this thread.
quoth Musnud, the starter of this thread.

If you look at the rest of this thread, I'm pretty sure most of the questions are from The Hobbit.

Only trying to help! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Whom does Gandalf wish were banished from this world?

It is from The Hobbit, so you need not search throughout all of Tolkien's works!

I knew it was something about a snail, and since I had to look it up anyway, I decided to post it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Now for mine....
Who was the last dwarf to set foot in Bag-end?

Oh goodness. I was just thinking about the first chapter. I forgot Balin comes to visit! *sulks in corner* [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] I guess I'd better brush up on my Hobbit skills!
