An unexpected giveaway

21 Dec

I was everso fortunate as to attend the midnight opening of The Hobbit in IMAX 3-D, and as we were leaving, the theater/IMAX/movie production company generously provided us with complimentary movie posters.  There are four 13.5″x19.5″ mini-posters: one each of Thorin, Gollum, Gandalf, and Bilbo.  Since this is the season of giving and good cheer, and since I have so much to be grateful for, I wanted to share the luv with you.


From now through New Year’s Eve, you can enter to win the posters.  All you have to do is answer the questions below correctly (please put your answers in the comments section), and on New Year’s Day I will randomly select a winner.  May your Christmas season be especially Hobbity, and good luck!

1 – Which of Bilbo’s ancestors was big enough to ride a horse?  And which game did said ancestor invent?

2 – What three things did Bilbo forget when he left Bag-End on his unexpected journey?
