*hee* Wow, that was not even close to what I thought it would be. Some great limericks in there, how creative! Well done.

The obvious humor within the limericks was fun, but my favorite part of this fic is the humor found in the side commentary. For example, the argument over the word "snork," during which Sam pointed out that Strider (who hasn't even been referred to yet in the fic) just barely snorked while choking on his ale as they were finishing the rhyme. Or the idea that Beregond can quell Pippin because Pippin is now obligated to look after him and that he's doing the same thing to Faramir, something Faramir is only now figuring out. It's the little side conversations that really made this fic for me.

This was a very cute story. Enjoyable and creative. The limericks were very amusing and unique. It was a nice read for a Sunday afternoon because it was light, silly, written well and all-in-all sweet.

This is too, too funny, and so delightfully hobbit-y. I love to see them like this, lighthearted and relaxing with a pint.

This is a very hobbity story, and the game is wonderful. This is one of those stories that one can imagine actually taking place and I love when that happens! The dialogue is especially enjoyable here, and beneath the humour I could sense the longings of the hobbits to go home. The interaction between all of the characters was very nice, and one can see the deep friendship between them, as well as getting a taste of life in the Shire.

A very hobbit-type game, and I enjoyed the characterisations, especially of the hobbits. Very nice story.
