    Riddles in the Dark - CLOSED

    A couple of months ago I was able to buy one of my sought after statues; Gollum to complete my Smeagol from the TTT dvd. However, buying this one meant I got an extra Smeagol and the extra dvd as well.

    I cannot imagine anyone missing this lovely statue, but still I am giving you the opportunity to get him for free! The dvd that goes with it is absolutely amazing and really shows how much love Weta is putting into the making of the collectibles. I have to admit though, the box of the dvd has seen better days. Also no box for Smeagol is available, but he will be packed carefully.

    Maybe, if you’re lucky, I’ll throw in some stroopwafels as well, as I know these are currently the most sought after items on this forum.

    What do you have to do? Imagine you are Bilbo in a dark cave, and you encounter a sneaky creature who wants to play a game of riddles with you. What would be the riddle you would ask him, to make sure you win the game and get out of the cave alive?

    This giveaway will run until June 20th. Looking forward to your riddles!

    Almost round,
    Beneath the ground
    Under mound
    It can be found!

      Celaglar , what a great and generous giveaway.

      Valar , wonderful riddle, but I knows, I knows precious!

      I already have Gollum and the DVD. The DVD is a must have for any Weta; Middle-earth fan. If you don't have it, I strongly suggest entering the giveaway!

      I would still like to post a riddle, even though I do not wish to be a of the giveaway. It's an easy one.

      What has eyes but can not see.
      Has both protein and Vitamin C.
      Is rather bland when cooked along,
      But in a stew it find's its 'home'?



      Good luck to all those that participate.

        LOL Minuialwen


        I also have both items Celaglar so I'll also not be entering, but like Min I couldn't resist entering such a cool riddle competition!

        Agreed, the DVD is a must have and certainly not what you'd expect it to be! Probably the most must-have DVD for a Weta Middle Earth fan other than the movies themselves!

          I remember putting off watching the dvd for so long as I thought it was just another documentary of how they created Gollum for the film, and I had already seen loads of similar things! I had no idea it was about the collectibles!

            I'm tempted to enter this just for the Stroopwafels!
            Looking forward to reading the riddles

                    Great riddle Smithaven.

                      My guess too!

                      I suppose it could also be someone who is very busy

                        This is very kind of you and really fun (if my brains would work at least) but since I got both I'm not going to participate and just sit back and watch others riddle it out

                        Good luck to all who do enter

                          Awesome to see all the riddles coming in. I appreciate people not participating in the giveaway to still post their riddles!

                          I am thinking of a river as well.



                          Come on people, we need more riddles!

                            If stroopwafels weren't readily available just around the corner, I'd be tempted to enter as well

                            I only know one riddle, but I fear it's not appropriate for this forum. And I'm not too familiar with this new Valar mod so I'm not risking the ban hammer

                              This is a great riddle Valar! I didn't even think of that answer, being you, of course, it has to be the right answer.
                              I was thinking arkenstone. A po-ta-to would also work for this.

                              I thought of entering just for the stroopwafels, but decided not to, as someone else deserves to crave stroopwafels as much as I do.

                              Hmmm, I guess I'm not doing my job well enough if it Valar you are worried about.

                                Great guesses everyone! Our riddles both had the same answer Min:

                                POE-TAY-TOE!

                                because while a potato grows, usually the soil is mounded on top. At least that was the answer when I wrote it, but I suppose all three answers would work well!

                                Olórin oh I wouldn’t worry, I’ve not even worked out yet where Mjolnir is locked away! Must be somewhere in the depths of the forum, and I don’t want to delve too deep. Who knows what I might awaken!

                                      Hurry up Flamers! Get those riddles in before Gollum eats us alive!




                                      And just a quick reminder that this DVD is not really about Gollum at all, it really is a must-see for any Weta statue collector. Absolutely magical.

                                        Never moving,
                                        Always going somewhere;
                                        Yet if you follow,
                                        You'll leave it behind.



                                        (couldn’t resist making up another one!)
