Riddle Game

Post by CamoBadger on Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:24 am

I've enjoyed this on other forums I am a member of, and now I'm bringing it here!

Basically, post a riddle and the others will solve and give an answer until someone gets it right or nobody can get it within a few days or we all give up.

To start us off, I'll put up one by Einstein, which I have been working at for 30 minutes and have made absolutely no progress on.

***NOTE: When he made this, Einstein stated that 98% of the world cannot solve this riddle, and I'm starting to believe that because I'm getting a headache from trying to figure it out***
Spoiler:

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors

In each house lives a person with a different nationality

These 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet

No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.

Here's the question: Who owns the fish?
The Brit lives in a red house

The Swede keeps dogs as pets

The Dane drinks tea

The green house is on the left of the white house

The green house owner drinks coffee

The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds

The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill

The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk

The Norwegian lives in the first house

The man who smokes Blend lives next door to the one who keeps cats.

The man who keeps horses lives next door to the man who smokes Dunhill

The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer

The German smokes Prince

The Norwegian lives next to the blue house

The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water

With these 15 clues the problem is solvable.

the german in the green house owns the fish..... so new riddle then?

sign and counter sign

Two spies want to get in an enemy's military base.In order to get in they have to give the correct countersign to the guard at the gate after he gives them the sign. So they wait hidden nearby the gate so that they will overhear the countersign from another soldier.

One soldier comes and the guard gives the sign: "6".The soldier answers "3".The guard lets him pass. Another soldier comes.The guard says "12" and the soldier gives the answer "6".The guard lets him pass. So, the first spy goes at the gate and the guard asks says "10".The spy, sure that he knew the answer as he was, says "5". Immediately, the guard shoots him dead.

Then the other spy, who saw that the other spy was killed when he gave the countersign, had now understood what the right answer would be, whatever the guard's sign was.So, he walks to the gate and the guard says "8".The spy gives the correct answer and the guard lets him in. What was the answer that the spy gave?

i am going to say that the spy said "1"

thought process
Spoiler:
the first guard and soldier it was 12 and 6 when added the answer was 18. the second guard and soldier it was 6 and 3 and added up to nine. which both 18 and nine are evenly divisible by nine (so that it made 8+1=9)

i am not good with creating riddles so who ever wants to can put one up (i mean if thats ok with everyone else)

Spy's response was 5.
Spoiler:

Answer is the number of letters to spell whatever number the guard says.
EX: SIX=3 TWELVE=6 EIGHT=5
