Here's an idea I had for a new
ongoing trivia game. I conceive of this being played in the best
tradition of any living room, relaxed game. It's all for fun (I'm
not keeping any score). There's no such thing as cheating (you can
get your answers any way you want). We make up the rules as we go
along and we change them anytime we want. Silly or joke answers are
always welcome. And conversation can run concurrent with the game
There are many themes in the LOTR movie soundtracks. I've prepared
soundclips for 5 different iterations of Mystery Theme #1.
Downloadable soundclips from a CD (either the Original
Soundtrack or a Complete Recording). These don't have any movie
sound or dialog.
Downloadable soundclips from a LOTR movie. These are from the
same scenes as #1 but since they have movie sound and dialog,
they provide more clues.
Tracks and time ranges for the same music as in #1 above. If you
have the OST and/or CR, then you could listen from your own copy
if you don't wish to download. Since knowing how many of these
clips are from which movie could be considered a clue, I'll put
these time ranges in hidden font. Highlight to read.
Challenge 1: Can you identify any of the scenes for these clips?
It may be hard to match specific clips with specific scenes
(without the dialog) because the different iterations of this
music are quite similar. But you can be as specific or general
as you want. If you can't identify them from the CD soundclips,
try the movie soundclips.
free to use whatever resources you have. Nothing is considered
'cheating'. Also feel free to take the discussion beyond the
parameters of the trivia challenge. Discussing the music in the
soundclips and/or the scenes is fine. Having fun with your answer is
fine. Asking questions or requesting hints is fine.
