The Riddle Game [Ended]





pampoon
The Idea:
Okay, I've been wanting to start a contest and as I was looking back on a lot of old contests, and there are quite a bit about riddles but no big contest overall. So I thought I'd start one.

How It Will Work:
I'll post a new riddle and you all try to solve it. Whoever gets it right will win up to 10 frih$ depending on how hard the riddle is. Each time someone gets it right I'll post a new riddle.

The Rules:
1. Don't copy what the person says before you. If he gets it right, you still get it wrong. If he gets it wrong, you wasted your post.
2. I get my riddles from random sources all over the place, but please don't cheat by Google searching.
3. If your post is edited, you will not win!
4. The guessing rule is the same as the "Guess The Image Game". You have to wait for two people to guess before you can guess again. It keeps it fair.

The Riddles: (updated)
1. What has four corners, two sides, and a portrait?
2. What tells the time and your direction without saying a word?
3. Who flies, dives, and crashes on purpose?
4. "I rarely move,
I block your ring,
I'm usually quite pretty,
I protect from hot and cold."
5. What makes more and can still be used to mark none?

The Leaderboards:
(none yet)

A mirror.

m-productions
thats a very good guess, but i hope its not the answer, for not every mirror has 4 sides, my guess is a dollar bill, this has 4 corners, 2 sides (the back and the front) and a picture of a president.

I'm going to go with a sheet of paper.

(Guide to my thinking: A sheet of paper could be portrait or landscape Wink )
Ratmaster
Picture frame... I think...
Azmo
an ID card? there are alot of stuff that fits in to that description Smile
m-productions
im guessing you can guess twice? anyway, im also going to go with a stamp.

I think this is correct although it could be many countries paper money (here in the UK the notes have two portraites, one on each side so it can't be that). So I am backing m-productions to win, well it would have been my guess at least. Good luck and I will join in the next round.
pampoon
Wow, sorry. I kind of forgot about this. Anyways, yes m-production is correct. I'll pay you in a few minutes.

And yes, you can guess twice. It's the same as it is for the "Guess the Image Game".

Next Riddle:
What tells the time and your direction without saying a word?

Yeah, that one was easy. I just made it off the top of my head. Now I'm going to try a few harder ones.

Anyways, I've paid you.

Next Riddle:
Who flies, dives, and crashes on purpose?

God bless Wink ,
Pampoon
Hammy
heh thanks Smile

Hmm.. since i'm around i'll guess again. A lemming? Lol! I cant think of anything else right now :p.

Hammy.
pampoon
Ha, nope. But it would be pretty funny to see one flying.

God bless Wink ,
Pampoon
endless
a flying fish? Razz
reddishblue
A space shuttle?
You know, it flies up, some pieces fall off and then sometimes they go and crash into the ocean Razz

Reddish
pampoon
No to both. You're thinking "what" not "who".

Seems too obvious but - A Kamikaze Pilot?

Yep, you got it. I thought that I'd given it away with the who. Maybe that wasn't as hard as i thought Confused .

Captain Fertile - Paid

Next Riddle:
"I rarely move,
I block your ring,
I'm usually quite pretty."

After five wrong guesses, I'll add a few more hints.

Good luck and God bless Wink ,
Pampoon
Captain Fertile
Many thanks for the FriH$ - much appreciated.
jabapyth
umm... another ring? wedding band... (block your ring finger)
Hammy

hammy
ocalhoun
A hurdle!
(If you consider a race course as a ring)
pampoon
No to all.

And sorry, I was busy with a camp my college was putting on so I didn't have time to check this.

God bless Wink ,

Captain Fertile
This is a strange one, I have plenty of ideas but not a single one that meets all three of the clues. Shocked

Finally, I wanted to make this one harder. As well, the price has for sure been upped.

Really clutching at straws here - CANVAS?

I rarely move - A still life painted on canvas
I block your ring - A Boxing ring is covdered with canvas
I'm usually quite pretty - A Pianting or print on Canvas is pretty
I protect from hot and cold - A canvas tent protects for heat and cold

Wow, that is a great answer...

but it's wrong Confused . You seem to be thinking too large and wide-minded. The descriptions aren't things you would notice at once, it would take a little while to notice them.

I don't know what else to tell you without giving it away. I'll be sure to give a much easier hint so just wait it out for four guesses...

God bless Wink ,

Is that possible?


Anyway, Captain, thanks for the idea of straws, which led to:
A coaster! (The kind you set your drink on to block a ring from being made on your furniture by the condensation. They are usually pretty, rarely move, and they also protect the furniture from heat and cold.)

Aha! Finally! Very Happy Smile Laughing Razz I was beginning to think no one would get this...

Anyways, Ocalhoun you've been paid.

Next Riddle:
What makes more and can still be used to mark none?

Good luck!

eh? this is kind of hard to understand...are there three riddles? or is 1,2,3 clues to the same object? because if they're all different i'm guessing the answer to number 2 is the sun.

It tells the time if you use a sundial, and it tells which direction it is north, east, south, west if you know which way the sun sets, and the sun cant speak! haha
Hammy

I apologize, they should be updated now.
