Tolkien trivia question and answer #10

Hope you had a good weekend off from the trivia question. As I mentioned before, I won’t be posting questions over the weekend for the sake of those who can only read the blog at work. (I’m sure your boss doesn’t mind.)

Friday’s question was “What did Melkor do with the Silmarils after he stole them?” For those who don’t know, this refers to an event in “The Silmarillion”. Melkor was Sauron’s role model, sort of the “Satan” of Middle-Earth. The Silmarils were the gems created by the elf Feanor that were so beautiful that they were coveted by all who saw them and which caused the great wars of the First Age. And the answer was “He took them to Middle-Earth and set them in his crown.”

Here’s today’s question: “What Orc king had a well-known game named after him as a result of his death, who killed him, and what was the game?” Answer tomorrow.
