The A to Z of middle earth.

Ok,this is how it works, like a childrens rhyming A-Z, but all the word used must be things from middle-earth, the undying lands or numenor.

One person gives the first line. fort example. "A is for Anduril, the flame of the west"
THe other players must make up a rhyming line. for example "B is for Bilbo, whom gandalf knew best."

When the reply has been made, that player may then set a rhyme for the next rhyming couplets.

"C is for Celeborn, in Lothlorien green.

and the other players must once again come up with a second part for this couplet.

The game continues to the end of the alphabet. Try it! It's harder than it looks.

I'll start with.

A is for Aragorn, both Ranger and King,

I'm pretty sure someone's done this game before, but I'm certainly not complaining. (It was something like Gashlycrumb Downers, anyway.)

Y for Yvi - we're skipping X, right?
OR, if you insist, there is nothing on X from Tolkien, but maybe at least on this forum
X is for Xyzzy, the wolf by your side.
ALL RIGHT, that was enough - now seriously
Y for Yavanna, gentle and mild.

Z for Zirakzigil - this is the end;
should we now turn it and start again?
