Anyone want to play Norse quiz?

Post by Darkamber on Tue Feb 10, 2015 6:53 am

The rules are simple: The first one to answer correctly gets to ask the next question.

I'll ask an easy one:
What is the name of Odin's spear?

(I keep hearing "
Do you wanna play a Norse quiz?"
to the tune of "
Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?"
from Frozen.) Very Happy

Mjolnir? Is it The Masher Smasher?

I thought Gugnir is the name of chopsticks Hel uses when they serve the Kung Pao down there.

Oh yes, luck it is, hamingja is the path of luck. The personification part is the other aspect of it rubbing the shoulders with flygia. You nailed them both in one line.

Hmm, okay, let me think... a slightly more obscure one this time....

What is the name of the sword that was supposedly crafted by Loki?
