Play Riddles In The Dark With Gollum In The Hobbit Viral Game

In J.R.R. Tolkien's original novel The Hobbit, the time that Bilbo Baggins spends in a cave with mysterious Gollum is one of the most memorable sequences, establishing Gollum as the unforgettable character who, of course, becomes much more important in the Lord of the Rings series. But though Gollum has been featured a lot in promotions for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, it's unclear how big a role he'll play in what's now a trilogy of films-- after all, the time he spends in the cave with Bilbo is relatively small, and they could just be focusing on a character we all know to get us interested in following a brand-new band of dwarves into Middle Earth adventure.

So while we wait to find out just how much of Gollum we'll see in An Unexpected Journey, Warner Bros. is taking another moment to reunite us with him in their marketing, introducing the "Riddles in the Dark" game at the film's official website. Click on the riddle below to head to the site and take on Gollum's tricksy riddles for yourself.

As you might have seen, users have the ability to submit riddles for themselves, though thus far none of them quite live up to Gollum's. When you're spending your life living alone in a cave with a ring that controls the world, I guess you have a lot of time to come up with better riddles than everybody else?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey comes to theaters December 14, and to learn much, much more about it, you can click here.
