Hoping that I got the answer right after all that, some much easier questions, at least for those not mathematically minded.

Name the Seven Dwarfs, the Three Kings, the Thirteen Dwarves and the Three Stooges.
Give the number of Wizards, Thompson Twins, Monros and Marx Brothers.

There. Something for everyone, I hope.

Six right

All three right. Bonus points for any other the other stooges that were part of the act at some time.

I don't think you gave an answer.

I make it that there's 18 points unclaimed, so it's still anyone's game.

I meant that my answer is the same as for the LOTR dwarves question - I'll leave it to someone else.

I know there was another brother called Shemp who got involved.

I've climbed/walked a significant number of them myself, though way, way off the total.

Yes, that's the missing dwarf of the seven. One point to red_phoenix.

Any ideas on the missing 8 dwarves?

Since I have a reputation to keep up.

The thirteen dwarves, including those already named:
Thorin, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Ori, Nori, Dori, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur and Bombur

Wizards: five. Gandalf, Saruman, Radagast, and the two Blue Wizards.
