Talk:Shooting at the wand

[edit] Shooting at the wand = Wand shoot?

As a boy he used to practise throwing stones at things, until rabbits and squirrels, and even birds, got out of his way as quick as lightning if they saw him stoop; and even grownup he had still spent a deal of his time at quoits, dart-throwing, shooting at the wand, bowls, ninepins and other quiet games of the aiming and throwing sort-indeed he could do lots of things, besides blowing smoke-rings, asking riddles and cooking, that I haven't had time to tell you about.
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, "Flies and Spiders"

I'm assuming this is the same as wand shoot? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 00:19, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Probably. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:13, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Categorisation?

I'm unsure how to categorise this. Any ideas? -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:39, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Don't we have some Category:Games for games inside the legendarium (TG is too slow right now for searching around)? Perhaps Category:Activities, Category:Leisure, etc. Otherwise I think it could be appropriate.--Morgan 17:48, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
The entirety of Category:Games falls outside of the legendarium. I'm not sure how useful Category:Activities etc. could be. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:01, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Golf is in Category:Hobbits, as is Riddles[former link] and Riddle-game. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:09, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps we could create Category:Hobbit past times to accommodate them all? -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:26, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
That seems like a sensible approach to me. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 12:04, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
