Want Some Riddles?
« on: February 02, 2015, 04:12:06 PM »
Riddles are a fun way to pass time. So how about, I say a riddle. Then you try to guess the answer. If it is not guessed after around 5-10 guesses, I will reveal the answer and the person who last posted can tell a riddle. If you guess the riddle you can tell a new one, and the cycle repeats. Feel free to post riddles you have already seen somewhere. They do not have to be created by you.

So here's a fun riddle  :tea:

A man says, "If you lie to me I will slay you with my sword. If you tell me the truth, I will slay you with a spell." What must you say to stay alive?

Spoiler for Is the answer...:
Nothing?

Not sure if that's right or not... if it is, I'll post another riddle :)

My best guess, though it's probably not right.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Tell a joke? (It's technically not the truth, nor is it a lie.)

Clever! But not correct  :P I will admit though, this is a hard riddle.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I don't know what the exact answer this one's looking for (since the previously posted response of "nothing" is functionally correct :P), but "You will slay me with your sword and not your spell" would short-circuit his proposal and make him go boom if he were a robot.

Haha, I like how Reives worded that one ^_^ On my walk I also thought it might be...

Spoiler for Hiden:
...some sort of paradox sentence, for example "I am lying." But I prefer Reives' paradox sentence since it ties in with the sword/spell situation^^

Impressive Rieves, you got it perfectly correct. Haha
Your answer is correct, too Laura! I'm impressed, I don't know anyone who's solved that one :P
Either of you can say the next riddle, I'm excited to see what it is!

Okay, this should be a pretty short run as it's semi-multiple-choice. Here it goes:

2 jewelry-lovin' leebles sat on a sleeping turtle floating in a small pond; one wore a big bronze crown, the other wore a big platinum crown of the same design. And then they suddenly went craAaaAAazy (!! :gasp:) and decided to see who can get the water level to be the highest by tossing their crown into the water; both of which managed to sink fully before being fished up.

Who won and why? [Note that the turtle had earmuffs on and didn't wake up for this fuss.]

Whichever threw second?

Naw, they threw them individually and fished it up before the other was thrown.

Haha, any hints? I'm not so great at these... I hope the answer hasn't been staring me in the face all this time...

Sure, the hint is that platinum has a higher density than bronze. :)

Hmm... if both of the Leebles were sitting on a turtle, and the turtle was floating in the pond... then the water level shouldn't change if they throw their crowns in, since the weight is already on the turtle (and the water should already be displaced by the weight of the turtle, Leebles, and their crowns). So my guess is, neither won?
