Riddle Rules

The riddles all share simple rules:
  • They have one intended answer. While some riddles seem to have multiple solutions, there was only one solution in mind when writing them. There may be more than one answer that feels like a great answer, but ideally there is one answer that feels like a perfect fit once you think of it.
  • Each line is important and the answer fulfills all clues given in the riddle.
  • Some clues may refer to homophones, which are words that are pronounced the same way but differ in either (or both) spelling or meaning.
  • Most importantly, they are not perfect! These are wordplay riddles and they are sometimes based on unpopular connotative meanings, common phrases, common idioms, tricky and misleading phrasing, etc. Please be mindful of the imperfect nature of this style of riddle. Some of the solutions may not seem fully satisfactory, but you can be sure they were meant to be. [1]

    Riddle of the Day 05-17-21

    The purpose of these riddles is first to be entertaining, but beyond that they accentuate different ways of thinking about everyday things, different ways of describing attributes of objects in a less common way, and new ways of looking at the "well that's one way to put it" sentiment that is hard to define.

    Prisoner Hat Riddle

    Four inmates are cleaning up a littered beach as part of a prisoner work program. The warden, who happens to be overseeing the work, decides to play a little game with the prisoners. He tells them that if they win the game he will let them go free! He then proceeds to bury each prisoner up to his neck in sand as shown.

There is a wall between prisoners C and D (which cannot be seen through or around). Prisoner A can see prisoners B and C (by moving his head to the side). Prisoner B can see prisoner C. Prisoners C and D see only the wall.

The prisoners are immobilized in the ground and can't twist their body to see the person behind them. The warden shows them two black hats and two white hats and then puts the hats in a bag to conceal them. He then stands behind each prisoner, chooses a hat from the bag, and puts it on their head. The color of each prisoner's hat is shown in the image above.

The rules are simple. If any prisoner can figure out the color of the hat on his head, all four prisoners will be set free. But they must be sure, if one of them simply guesses and is wrong, they will all be shot dead! The prisoners are not allowed to talk to each other and they have 10 seconds.

The warden counts down "ten, nine, eight, seven". All four prisoners are silent. The warden smiles, knowing that he put the hats on in such a way that no prisoner could possibly know the color of the hat they had on. He continues "six, five, four, thr.."

"I know the color of my hat!" one of the prisoners finally blurts out.

Which prisoner called out and why is he 100% certain of the color of his hat?

    Which prisoner called out and why is he 100% certain of the color of his hat?
    Hint:
    Prisoner B.

    If prisoners B and C had the same color hat on, prisoner A would have know immediately that his hat was the other color (there are only two hats of each color). Since prisoner A was silent, prisoners B and C must have different colored hats. Prisoner B realized this and knew that his hat was not the same color as prisoner C, therefore his hat must be black!

    How Many Eggs Do I Have Riddle

    Hint:
    3 eggs only

    This is a tricky riddle and has a lot of wordplay involved. The first line is a hypothetical situation. So it means that the total number of eggs is zero, to begin with.
    In the second line, a thief gives 3 eggs, making the total count 3.
    the third line reads, a rooster lays eggs, which is an impossible thins as roosters don't lay eggs, which means zero eggs collected from the roosters.
    So, 0+3+0 = 3
