Question

In "The Hobbit", how come that Bilbo didn't tell Gandalf nor the dwarves about the magic ring he found?

Solution

Verified

Bilbo didn’t tell anyone about the magic ring because he wanted to keep it up his sleeve (“not just now” he thought to himself, regarding telling them). He probably also wanted to somewhat inflate his abilities so that the group would respect him more, which worked well.
