When you eliminate a card, place it face down in your eliminated pile. You may always examine your own eliminated pile.

Once a card is eliminated, it will not re-enter play.

Whenever you eliminate a card, examine it for text that applies when it is eliminated (for example, Frodo). If the card has such text, reveal the card to the other players and resolve the appropriate game text. Otherwise, do not reveal cards eliminated from your hand or your draw deck to the other players.

When you are directed to eliminate a card, but you are unable to do so, there is no further penalty. However, in a case where you may voluntarily eliminate cards to gain some benefit, you cannot gain the benefit if you cannot eliminate. For example, you cannot winnow if you do not have 2 cards in your hand to eliminate.
