The game is simple. These are the rules.

Each round I give you a riddle. You have 12 hours to respond to each, so make sure you publish your rebuttal in time.


You answer it correctly, and we move onto the next one. You get it wrong, and you must immediately forfeit, and I will win. As the rounds progress the riddles become increasingly more difficult.

I will allow a maximum of two guesses for each riddle. If one of them is correct or close to correct, you will still win the point. I will deem what is "close".

If you get all three riddles correct you win the debate.

And just a heads up - don't bother searching for these online. They're all from my own mind. Each one has a reasonable and achievable answer that any intelligent person can get. If you think there is information that is absent or lacking then it is on purpose by design. Think carefully. It would be both helpful and enjoyable if in your answer you could also show your thinking, i.e. how you arrived at the point. Good luck.


Riddle A

Each day during his commute home a man spies six front gardens outside his train. The gardens belong to the only houses that exist along his journey. The numbers coincide with the order in which he sees them.

Garden 1: The grass is long, unkempt and the garden path is barely visible. The picket fence bordering it is white and dated - paint is peeling.

Garden 2: Tidy, clean-cut grass, a small fish pond in the centre. No fence.

Garden 3: No grass, only brick and stone. No fence. The path is straight and narrow leading to the front door of the house.

Garden 4: The grass is green and luscious. Flower beds surround it. The garden fence is brown and tall.

Garden 5: Two dogs in two kennels doze every day. The grass is dry. The fence bordering it is wire.

Garden 6: The grass is green and luscious. Flower beds surround it. The garden fence is brown and tall.


These houses all lie on only one side of the train tracks. On the other side is nothing but forest. Which garden belongs to the man?
