Ok this is a game i play in lectures with my freinds, we normally draw it but it works just as well written.
The aim of the game is to defeat the person above you with something from the LOTR universe, it can be from any point in its History but cannot be from outside Middle Earth (such as guns, super-injunctions or fluffy bunnies). Rather than a one word post you must explain how your thing defeats my thing.

So, I post 'Oliphant - huge eliphant that destroys everything in its path'

Someone might then post: 'Legolas shoots Oliphant in head with arrows - awesome action sequence'

Next person: 'Laketown Wine - Legolas gets plasterd along with all other Mirkwood Elves' (See Hobbit - ignore TT film)

Understand? If we get into the rediculouse situation of someone posting Eru Ilúvatar or you can't think of a way to defeat the above person without resorting to such measures, then the game resets.
Ok.


Goblin King - has hordes of Goblins to overwealm opposition and is very evil.

Goblin King


lol, i got a kick outta that heh.

Gandalf the Grey (I fear we are quickly approaching Eru with my answer, but working under the assumption that you refer specifically to the Goblin King in The Hobbit, I only see one answer).

(slightly changed the rules so that you have to explain how your thing defeats the above to avoid one word posts, but don't worry, my fault for not writeing that the first time.

And yes - i was refereing to that Goblin King lol)

Half-lings pipeweed - 'The Half-lings pipe weed has clouded your mind' (Sauron)

Ooops sorry. Its because we saw a sword flash as it went through the Goblin king after the lights went out. And you took a different way of thinking that I didn't think of, and therefore making it possible to make the game longer than I saw, very nice.

Hobbit farmers, because poor management of the fields could cause the pipe-weed to wither and die in the sun.

That's VERY tricky lol. Took me a couple minutes, thought of a couple answers but didn't think they'd be fair, but finally came up with something.

Saruman - He burned many areas of Rohan as his army marched toward Helm's Deep, he accidentally got some of those new pipe-weed farms.

Ents - Because of Saruman's hubris the gates were lightly defended and swept away by them

That's not completely true, many orcs survived, they were just scattered and had no organization after their leader and driving force passed.

Faramir killing Gollum, instead of letting him go- If the Hobbits even were able to make it without his guidance, he wouldn't have been there to fight Frodo for possession of the Ring which was what caused it to be destroyed.
