Puzzle/Riddle Game
« on: June 05, 2009, 10:13:17 PM »
Your attention please.

You have the right to decide whether your riddle is acceptable.

SCORING
Major hint trigger:  1 point.
Solved: 2 points.
Bad Riddle:  -1 point.

LEADERBOARD
Simon, 4
Chmera, 4

Like the quiz, but with logic puzzles/riddles to fill in for the questions.

You may ask questions (within reason) to gather more information.

NOTE:  Due to the likelihood of someone getting a wrong answer, wait for your answer to be confirmed to ask a new riddle.

To start:

A lemming is given a skill.  Soon after, he knows that he will soon die.  Why is this?

HINT:  Skill stock/selection matters.

I love these.

Skill is one of the original eight skills?
If so, a blocker? Bomber?
Are any ground removing skills yet available after the skill assignment?

Bomber:  Does not matter.
No ground removing skills.

Lol, one scenario could be a Lemming who has just been made a climber, but can see in sight a large drop and not a brolly to be seen for miles. :P
This Lemmings forum is simply *fabulous*!

Floater?  Does not matter.
Skill was a blocker.

Then he knows he's going to die because of the missing ground removing skills, there's no future for him besides nuke? (Exploder removes ground.)

You got it right!  It's your turn to ask one (remember, it doesn't HAVE to be lemmings related).

Whee :)

This is one that happened to me in real life. I'm a college student and live in an apartment. One day, I lacked a certain item for a particular task. I still managed to get the job done using a hammer, a screwdriver, a pipe wrench and a towel. What did I want to do?

Any yes/no-questions are possible.

Was it plumbing-related?  Pipe repairs?

A series of horrifying murders involving a blow to the head, drilling out their brains, unscrewing their ears, and cleaning it with a towel? ... And you lacked your sanitary latex gloves. :-)

Lol, no idea.

O_o.  What IS this?

Was it a repair job of anything?

Was it building something?

If it keeps raining no's, I can give a small hint soon.

Okay, maybe this thread won't work as an anarchy.  I must question the possibility of this riddle being solvable.  Please read the newly added rules.

I have played this one with a friend over Instant Messaging. He solved it after around 20 yes/no-questions without hints. He had a bit of experience with lateral puzzles, though.

Major hint: I was hungry. Damn hungry!
