The rules for the game are simple, use a riddle and try to use clever ones. The one who solves the riddle gets to ask the next one. If it seems like no one will get it, then I'll intervene and ask for the answer. Also, try not to nit-pick.

As the OP, I'll open off with a somewhat simple one: You're on a boat headed to Florida, and you meet 5 people on each of the 5 boats (I mean 5 people per boat) you meet along the way. Each of those 5 people has 5 pets. So, how many people are headed to Florida?

1: only yourself. All the others are just ones you meet.

How many letters are there in the answer to this question? (Hint: There's two "proper" answers and numerous "fake" answers)

0

or

four.

Correct (you could also have "zero plus fifteen")

Glad to have participants, but Shay got the riddle right so he should've made the next riddle. Either way, it's his turn now. Unless you want to pass.

Nah, I'll pass it. I'm terrible at coming up with riddles. :P

Okay, here's another one.

What has no value to a dead man, is costly to others, but is the only thing a dead man owns.

death?
Nope. Hint: It's something the living always see.

a coffin?

a coffin?
It's a tombstone, but close enough, and I suppose people do see them laid down in a coffin or ash vase. Your turn for a riddle.

oh. that makes sense.
Anyway,

Only one color, but not one size,
Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies.
Present in sun, but not in rain,
Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.
What is it?

Dandelion or Sunflower.
Both are white or yellow, they have roots that stick at the bottom, seeds/parts of the flower that fly easily. They are present in the sun... um, never mind. Huh...

Nope.
I would say that the 3rd line is the most important hint to this riddle.

GrimsChild

Jeans?

I dunno why, but I want to say clouds reflected in puddles.... also that tombstone one does feel a lot more philosp-muh-cal with death as the answer but oh well.

Twister468
03-08-2012, 12:53 PM
No to both the Jeans and Cloud answer.
Another hint is it needs light to exist.

GrimsChild

Pollen?

It's something plant related right?

Twister468
03-08-2012, 02:21 PM
Nope, not plant related at all.

Rainbow?

GrimsChild

A Shadow

DavyBones24
03-08-2012, 02:36 PM
Probably totally wrong but...a fly? I don't think its one color but it fits the rest.

I'm pretty sure grims has got it

GrimsChild
03-08-2012, 02:59 PM
If a shadow really is the answer then I dispute the riddle's authenticity as black isn't a colour

Twister468

While black is technically not a color, most people associate it as one.
And a shadow is the correct answer.

If you didn't know, Grimschild, this means you get to suggest the next riddle or pass on it and it's up for grabs.

In front of you are 23 coins with 14 heads and 9 tails face up. You are asked to separate the coins into two piles that must contain the same amount of heads in each pile however you are blindfolded so you cannot see what faces the coins have face up. You are allowed to turn coins over but obviously you do not know which coins are which.

DrewStern

You feel the coins?

GrimsChild
03-09-2012, 03:34 PM
No.

ShayMay
03-10-2012, 01:31 PM
It's impossible. 23 is an odd number, and so it's impossible to get two piles containing the same number of heads, as the heads are still there, even if they're not face-up.

GrimsChild

You don't have to split the coins into even piles (As an example you could split them into a pile of 7 and 16 and still have 7 heads in each).

So what now, since you told us the answer.

GrimsChild
03-10-2012, 03:02 PM
That was an example of a possible combination where you have the same number of heads in both piles. You still need to find a way to make sure you can get the same number of heads in 2 piles of coins 100% of the time blindfolded.
