These have me stumped haha
Well that was fast. You are the first on this riddle. Pick a game and I will send it tomorrow. And me add me steam as well.
Ah thank you so much, I would like Moonlighter please. I enjoyed the riddles, still stuck on the second one tho haha.
1) scilla and charibda?
3 is goat
Is #1 scissors?
ahhh, that makes sense
Correct. Add me on steam and pick a game.
I'll take Monster Prom!
Late to the party. But I think you unintentionally created a riddle where a 'Binary Black Hole' is a great answer :)
Clock arrows are fine too until the pieces element.
2) A hat?
It is a hat. Pick a game and add me.
Ooof, that was lucky!
I would like to try Red Dead Road Redemption because I love to bring chaos on the road!
The riddle is why I'm thinking shadow or sun for #2
2) Intellect / Intelligence
Nice. 1 and 3 were nice and simple, though 2 has me stumped - as in it could be sooo many things :)
...like center of gravity.
2) The case of the letter "o".... :D :D :D

Looks like they've all been solved.
Just so people know, it looks like the answers were:
1 - Scissors
2 - Hat (I don't get the hen part of that riddle.)
3 - Goat (Was that said by Yoda? The word order is all messed up to me.)
Thanks for the giveaway and riddle contest badbutcher :D
The idea for 2) is that when you put the hat on yourself it's higher than you. When you put it on the ground it's lower than the hen. I can't find a better explanation.
Thanks for that clarification.
I'd have never guessed that, since to me the hen would be about the same distance down as the hat, on the ground. Of course, a hat on the ground isn't something I wouldn't think of either anymore than a shirt on the ground. (Not a place for clothing.)
Some of the classic riddles, especially when if it originated in another language, can get a bit odd, doubly so when they try to get metaphorical. Some things just don't cross cultures or languages very well. Read a book of classic riddles a long time ago, and a lot of them were really going out there in their conclusions. But opinions are like bellybuttons, we all have one. ;)
Thanks again :)
Ok I can see the answers to one and three, although to be honest I saw Syclla and charibdis for number one like another poster did,
But i have no idea how number 2 was arrived at, the hen part stumps me, anyone feel like explaining it to a dummy, cause I cannot get my head round it.
Curious. I feel like I'm learning more about Bulgaria than I am logic puzzles here. :)
I'm guessing there's a Bulgarian word that means "nest" in English, but can also mean a specific(?) type of hat in Bulgarian?
And I don't think I would have assumed a beard to be a basic characteristic of a priest!
Always fun to learn about different cultures, and a cool way to give away a couple games -- thank you! :)
Well a Bulgarian priest (and any orthodox priest) should have a long beard. In Bulgarian we call our priest "поп (pop)". There is no real translation so I used priest, pop would just confuse people. I am not sure what you mean about "nest" hat. Maybe this hat?
Браво! Glad to see other Bulgarians - just reading the riddles I thought I have heard of the Scissors one in Bulgarian :P
So 4th riddle - there are 5 games but 3 riddles. And the topic isn't closed, so this is still open I guess, so maybe who asks for one of the two remaining games shall receive it?
And I feel like "godprobe" answered the 5th riddle "What nationality am I?" with you being Bulgarian, so I think he should also get a game?
Or maybe I think too much and delved too deep into this. If it's over and there are no more riddles - okay.
Thanks for the interesting way of handing out the games! Поздравления за жеста!
P.S.: I riddled you as per the topic's title. I win a game? :D
P.S. 2: If you are giving away, I'd like to get Yoku's Island Express and will give a game back. :)
Как би се казвала тази котка на български?
Pretty sure it's not really much a riddle to tell where someone's from when their Steam profile has the answer. ;P
I didn't use that, but touché. :D
Fun thread idea, but you really have to craft your riddle words tightly otherwise participants first have to decipher what you meant to say before actually trying to answer the riddle. Also why I don't try writing them myself, because in trying to artfully mislead most people (myself included) end up stumbling on the same thing. ;P
This reminded me of a fun bit from a podcast actually. (timestamped)
