I did consider asking for the seven dwarfs as well, but I didn't.

Nul point.

Gimli, son of Gloin, (I think)
No, Gimili doesn't appear in The Hobbit, either in person or by name.

Several relations of those dwarves already mentioned are among the remaining names to be found.

Ah, stupid of me; I misread it as Lord of the rings.
I read The Hobbit after finishing Lord of the Rings, so The Hobbit is a bit fresher in mind. Wasn't there two brothers called Killi and Fili in it? I don't remember the number of L's in the name, so I try both one and two)

Yes, Fili and Kili, Thorin's nephews.

2 points to norway1456.

There are still at least 12 names to find (10 dwarves and 2 ravens).

Taken so far:
HomeInMyShoes: Bombur, Gloin, Balin, Dori, Nori, Thorin
norway1456: Fili, Kili.

No offense intended, but The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings quizzes were the reason I gave up smoking dope (so I didn't have to be subjected to any more such quiz nights).

Then you may skip this one, and join in the next quiz.

Well, with orlok out of the running, the rest of you have a chance!

We're looking for the thirteen dwarves of the main company, another important dwarf who actually makes an appearance, and four dwarves who are only mentioned by name.

I know most of the Dwarves have already been answered, but I can remember them most easily if I run through all of the names in my head. So here we go:

Thorin, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Dwalin, Balin, Dori, Nori, Ori, Bifur, Bofur and Bombur.
Thrain, Thror, Durin, Dain, Nain
Ravens: Roac, Carc

I am nerdy. Hear me roar.

A copy of The Hobbit was the first purchase the Mr and I ever made together, back when I was 15. We still have that battered old copy, fragile with age (the book, not me), as well as two other editions.

I live in the country where the movies are being made, and I'm a moderator on a very busy Tolkien-related site. So yes, among the trivia crammed into my head is a fair bit of Hobbit/LOTR stuff.

You are obviously the winner, but you're missed one!

I overlooked Durin (which may be why you stopped at 18 dwarves). You've overlooked Balin's father, who IS mentioned in the Hobbit. Balin is son of Fundin.

However, Shayne is obviously the winner of this one, with 12 points. Well done, Shayne.

Over to you for the next question.

Balin son of Fundin at your service! I'm so embarrassed to have missed that. You're quite right, it's because I got to 18 dwarves and stopped searching my memory. Thorin's sister (Dis) is also mentioned, though not by name.

Now I have to think of a quiz. Back soon...
