Two minutes too much? Should it be one?
Apr 5th, 2012 at 04:13 GMT
I think two minutes is fine but the O in Bifur's name should be U.

I like the LOTR series, but am not familiar with everyone; however, I don't understand why 'G' doesn't show up as a dwarf. Could you explain? Thanks.

If you're referring to Gimli, he's a dwarf, but he's not in the Hobbit, he's in the Lord of the Rings.
Apr 5th, 2012 at 04:48 GMT
Oh, I'm so dumb.......I thought you meant pick out the dwarves from the hobbits (race)! Great quiz, and I'm off to look contrite. :)
Apr 5th, 2012 at 16:53 GMT
Good point, bows- I've changed the wording of the question to avoid that confusion.
Apr 6th, 2012 at 01:30 GMT
30 seconds. One minute should be plenty.
Apr 10th, 2012 at 02:52 GMT
Excellent quiz. I loved the book and can't wait for the movie!
Apr 13th, 2012 at 03:00 GMT
First guess was Gimli...I better stick to LotR movie quizzes
Apr 18th, 2012 at 12:26 GMT
Hmm, I think maybe the time limit is a touch excessive - I got all 14 in just over 30 seconds. But then again, I am a huge Hobbit fan :S
Apr 21st, 2012 at 04:59 GMT
I don't remember Dain...somehow I thought there were only 13 (hence needing a Bilbo as a 14th member of the party). What am I missing/forgetting?
Apr 22nd, 2012 at 08:04 GMT
Dain is least guessed! Somebody should study this...
Apr 22nd, 2012 at 14:41 GMT
@elirose- Dain is Thorin's second cousin and leads his army of dwarves into the battle of the five armies. Ultimately he becomes King Under the Mountain when Thorin is killed.

It would also be fun to try and match the dwarf with his picture.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 15:50 GMT
Props for including Dain--I almost forgot about him! Also, good work on the selection of wrong answers--nice variety.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 16:22 GMT
I immediately just went for the main 13, then thought the quiz was broken. Then I remembered my friend uses Dwarves in Lotr the game and I just had a sudden realisation. Well Played, great quiz.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 16:39 GMT
It definitely helped that I've been scrambling to re-read the book before the movie comes out. Otherwise, I'm sure I would have fallen for the Gimli decoy.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 16:39 GMT
Dang! I knew Gimli isn't in The Hobbit, but I clicked it anyway my first time through.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 17:04 GMT
Laughing at Pharr and I hit Dopey by accident.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 17:32 GMT
LOL, to the seven dwarves thing...
Dec 12th, 2012 at 18:29 GMT
Before I hit "Play" I thought, no way I was going to get these. Then I remembered that many of them rhymed, so I ended up only missing two. Woo-hoo!
Dec 12th, 2012 at 19:32 GMT
my first choice was Gimli... Wrong.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 19:47 GMT
Nice quiz. Forgot about Dain.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 20:15 GMT
Interesting (not really) fact: popular IQ tests from the eighties used to have questions like "If every Balin is also a Bifur and some Bomburs are Balins then..."

A note for those who are curious about the wrong answers. Many are other Middle Earth characters who are not dwarves or who appear in the Lord of the Rings or the Silmarillion, but not in The Hobbit. Kuzdul is the language of the dwarves. Two are Snow White dwarves. Brimir and Blainn are alternate names for Ymir, the Norse god who is lord of the dwarves (and also the name of a mythological hall). Ramme and Pharr are inside jokes to those familiar with Sporcle (which is why caramba notes his laughter in his comment above). Matt Ramme is Sporcle's creator/founder and Derek Pharr is it's VP of products (http://www.sporcle.com/about.php). If you have as much fun on Sporcle as I do then you owe those two men (and others who I don't mean to slight) an awful lot of thanks.

Got the first 13, then tried to figure out whether the last one was Gimli or Dain. I was pretty sure Gimli wasn't in The Hobbit, but I remembered Dain only as the earlier king, not realizing there were two with that name.
Dec 13th, 2012 at 03:26 GMT
Completely forgot about Dain.
Jan 2nd, 2013 at 21:17 GMT
x_x Dain... I completely forgot about him :(
