The Incredible Puzzle Thread

posted by Klatuu on - last edited - Viewed by 3.5K users

Hi,

This is a thread to discuss some of your other favorite puzzles, riddles, brain teasers, armchair treasure hunts, etc.

To get started, here's an online puzzle hunt I've participated in before: Puzzlecrack. It's a week-long competition with clues given through the web page. Past competitions (and solutions) are still there for you to figure out.

Another similar one is Microsoft's College Puzzle Challenge.

Any other favorites?

    You win! :D
    Fun puzzle, isn't it?
    I'll give the rest of you a chance to solve it too. I'll post the solution tomorrow, for those that are still stumped.

  • I'll post the next one then!

    Really easy.
    There is a note. It reads:[quote]1. There is exactly one lie on this note.
    2. There are exactly two lies on this note.
    3. There are exactly three lies on this note.
    4. There are exactly four lies on this note.
    5. There are exactly five lies on this note.
    6. There are exactly six lies on this note.
    7. There are exactly seven lies on this note.
    8. There are exactly eight lies on this note.
    9. There are exactly nine lies on this note.
    10. There are exactly ten lies on this note.
    11. There are exactly 11 lies on this note.
    12. There are exactly 12 lies on this note.
    13. There are exactly 13 lies on this note.
    14. There are exactly 14 lies on this note.
    15. There are exactly 15 lies on this note.
    16. There are exactly 16 lies on this note.
    17. There are exactly 17 lies on this note.
    18. There are exactly 18 lies on this note.
    19. There are exactly 19 lies on this note.
    20. There are exactly 20 lies on this note.[/quote]How many of these are true, and which ones?

  • @NeatNit said: I'll post the next one then!

    Really easy.

    there are 2 that are true and they are number 1 and number 19

  • @prizna said: there are 2 that are true and they are number 1 and number 19

    Really? I would have said just number 19.

    EDIT: so what, the safe thing was just about reposting the picture with text before and after it?

  • 1 is true because the word lie appears in that paragraph once, I looked at it a different way:

    The word lie appears once so there is 1 lie on the note, the word lies appears 19 times so there are 19 lies on the note

  • Ah. You mean the word "lie". I just figured since they're mutually exclusive only one was true, and it had to be "number of sentences" - 1, that is 19.
