> > > Introducing..

..the official [font=arial]R[color=orange]IDDLE TOPIC!!![/color][/font]

[font=times]YaY!


*waits for applause*[/font]
Alright, this is how will this work:
I will post a new riddle every few days or so, if you get it right, you get some Wealth$$$ per question.
That's right.
*We'll see if we can use the wealth for something special later on in VoF or in WC3 somewhere. I may start a micro-economy on here.

We will have a scoreboard, and you have THREE (3) tries per riddle answer.

**Rules:**

1.
You can post as much as you want, you can discuss the riddle and answer, but if you're posting an answer you MUST indicate to me that that is your final answer.

2. No editing posts, if I see it, no matter what you posted, I will deduct a chance at that particular riddle.

3. I will not deduct your 3 chances per riddle if you get it close, or you also say something that makes sense.

4. If you're the only one guessing at the riddles, I may say something like "$30 wealth for the answer, $20 for Insomnia." So don't be Greedy! ^_^

No penalties for getting it wrong, riddles will be left for a week until the answer for that particular one is given.

Remember! You Can:
  • Sneak peak at the next riddle for $20.
  • Switch the Riddle for $35.
  • Get more chances for $15.
  • Get a hint for $20.

If anyone desires, send me a PM with your riddle, and I will tell you if and when you are allowed to post it up as a question. However, keep in mind that you will not be able to get Wealth for answering it.

ScoreBoard:
  • EleteGuard: $ + 1 Unofficial Riddle
  • Insomnia: $220
  • Slayer4000X2008: $130
  • Seanyx-Chris: $20
  • Victim_Of_Fate: $25
  • B2zeldafreak: $115
  • Dylan1473: $75
  • enigma: $20 + 1 Unofficial Riddle
  • Boobermafloo: $15

First Riddle:
Pretty Simple,

[font=times]A horse is tied to a five meter rope in front of an old saloon. Six meters behind the horse is a bale of hay. Without breaking his rope, the horse is able to eat the hay whenever he chooses.[/font][font=times]
How is this possible?

The rope is not tied to his head/neck so it still has space to move.
Or the rope is tied to nothing but the horse.

Correct!
The rope is tied to only the horse, nothing else.

Even though I saw you edit your post :P

Second Riddle:
Much harder, since Slayer got that one so easy..,

[font=times]"Therein lies the secret," said Scheming Suzie, "For you see, there is a seven-letter word in the English language that contains ten words without rearranging any of its letter."[/font][font=times]
What is it?

Thank you.

The word is 'Therein', but WHY?
(Only Slayer can answer this, no one else)

If you can't come up with an answer, you will be considered only half right.

I believe you mean, when you say why, that I have to put in ALL the words.
Well no problem: there, he, her, here, rein, in, re, herein, ere, the.

Third Riddle:
I like this one, Logic.

[font=times]Sid Shady was working for a large construction company that was very concerned about employee theft. Someone tipped company security that Shady was the man to watch. Every night, he passed through security with a wheelbarrow full of scrap lumber, discarded electrical wires, and chunks of concrete. The security guards checked the contents daily, but could find nothing of value.[/font][font=times]
What was Shady stealing?
[/font]
*Note: If Slayer gets this, he will only get $20.

Hmmm this is a hard one I will have to thik about it.

P.S. Your first to post were easy unlike the ones Jesse made, and I got the second one only because we spent a philosify class doing riddles because it was a half day.
