We don’t know about you, but here at Sporcle HQ, we’re pretty hyped about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. For weeks we’ve been tracking down awesome Lord of the Rings and Hobbit quizzes, slyly sharing our excitement through Hobbit-themed Facebook posts, and maybe even sneaking in a second breakfast.
While we can’t share any exclusive, behind-the-scenes interviews, or give you minute-by-minute updates counting down to the premiere, we do have…(drum roll)…quizzes!
Here are some of our favorite LOTR and Hobbit-themed quizzes, along some brief commentary:
Meals for Hobbits: If it really is true that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, than why not have two of them? Those hobbits really seem to know what they’re doing when it comes to meal appreciation.
‘The Hobbit’ Dwarves: Not to be confused with Snow White and her seven dwarfs, these thirteen dwarves have names that rhyme! Even if you don’t get many right, you can still have fun saying their names once the time’s up.
Middle-Earth Characters by Father: On this quiz, it’s time to give credit where credit is due. Dads can get us wrapped up in some crazy adventures. Like shopping for tools at Sears, or fighting Smeagol. Each is equally dangerous.
LOTR vs Harry Potter: We know, we know. Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are completely different and shouldn’t be compared. But, with all these similarities, who can really blame us? We’re trivia people, this is the kind of thing that keeps us up at night.
Name to Name: This quiz is a way to test your knowledge of names AND plot. Or you could see it as a complex refresher of your favorite characters and plot points. Either way, this quiz is challenging but satisfying.
Who Held the Ring?: Another character/plot quiz. Though it may seem simple, the extra info provided helps clarify any lingering questions you may have.
LOTR or IKEA?: Until the dawn of the quiz, you probably did not realize how LOTR characters’ names are eerily similar to IKEA Furniture Lines. Perhaps there’s a deeper connection, hidden in the secrets of Middle Earth. We’re hoping there’s a least a laugh in there somewhere.
