Rules updated:

This game is a kind of word riddle. There is always one word to guess.

To post a word riddle: You need to give hints for the letters of the word. One hint can belong to 1 or 2 or even 3 letters of the word (you need to clarify that in your post when you post the word riddle; see the example). You need to reply to the guesses of players, and confirm it if the solution is correct.

To guess the word: The players can use Google, Wikipedia etc. to find out what the hints point to and find the 1, 2 or 3 letters from the hints each. As soon as a player has found all the required letters, he/she needs to anagram them (rearrange them) to get the word.
The player who posts the correct word, will post the next question. Please wait for the confirmation if your guess is correct.


To make it clearer for new players, here is the solution to the first riddle game that was posted in this post by Zox_of_D00m:

hint 1.: stars shinin'..... (two letters) - New York
hint 2.: june 6 1944(one letter) - D-day
hint 3.: Kon-Tiki (one letter) - Thor Heyerdahl
hint 4.: german chancellor(two letters) - Angela Merkel
hint 5.: Internet Explorer(two letters) - IE

letters: N Y D T A M I E

Answer: DYNAMITE

Zox_of_D00m
12-06-2006, 14:02:33
uhm.. try to figure out yourself.. i can say so much that it might on most of the cases be a good thing to google it^^

SimplyCrazy
12-06-2006, 14:04:52
Hrmpf... And I don't even get special treatment :P

EDIT: Do the letters have to be next to eachother?

Zox_of_D00m
12-06-2006, 15:46:15
uh... i dont see what you mean..

SimplyCrazy
12-06-2006, 15:49:32
Like in the first hint: Can it be h and n or does it have to be two letters next to eachother?

Zox_of_D00m
12-06-2006, 15:51:49

Zox_of_D00m
12-06-2006, 15:54:42

mistery... still two wrong...

Mistery
12-06-2006, 16:15:40
I know. Sorry, I can't figure out those two :(
Your hint gives me hundreds of different references and I have no idea in which direction I should think.

Zox_of_D00m
12-06-2006, 16:32:04
the first hint is a song... the dots reffer to that the line is not fullfilled... ;)

Mistery
12-06-2006, 16:33:20
Yes, that's what I also tried but...

Okay, I try again. Is it really 1 word? Because I get a funny sentence, however not one word that makes sense.

Zox_of_D00m
12-06-2006, 17:00:56

ok, then ill wait with that one! :)

Mistery
12-08-2006, 16:15:01
Okay, I think we need a rule update / clarification in the first post. I assumed that the player who solves it, has to post the next question, or otherwise - if the player has no ideas or time - say that somebody else can post.
What do you think? Or did you had sth else in mind?

Zox_of_D00m
12-08-2006, 16:19:56
nono, sounds perfect! ^^

Mistery
12-08-2006, 16:25:18
Okay, thanks; here is mine. And it might be easier than yours. Probably...

Hint 1: Makes the world go 'round (one letter)
Hint 2: Humans have 23 pairs of them (one letter)
Hint 3: Unit for length (one letter)
Hint 4: New Leage of Nations (three letters)
Hint 5: An eye (one letter)
Hint 6: Felis Sapiens (three letters)
Hint 7: 10 to the power of minus 9 (one letter)
Hint 8: Daughter of Inachus (two letters)

That's 13 letters. Good luck :)

Mistery
12-08-2006, 16:34:13

But it seems probably easier to the one who makes it :haha:

Zox_of_D00m
12-08-2006, 16:36:01

Mistery
12-08-2006, 16:37:08
Open a new browser window and type in www.google.com or click this link :haha:
But: Wikipedia is also a good friend ;)

Zox_of_D00m
12-08-2006, 16:38:30

Zox_of_D00m
12-08-2006, 16:54:37

Mistery
12-08-2006, 17:50:54

Zox_of_D00m
12-09-2006, 15:45:58
im blank on this one, i think that there is too many letters...

Mistery
12-09-2006, 15:51:49
Okay, here some more hints:


Hint 1: Makes the world go 'round (one letter) Think about a song

Hint 2: Humans have 23 pairs of them (one letter) Has to do with genes (biology)

Hint 3: Unit for length (one letter) 100cm = 1 ?

Hint 4: New Leage of Nations (three letters) New name of "League of Nations" (the abbreviation of it with 3 letters)

Hint 5: An eye (one letter) How would you write "eye" as one letter? ;)

Hint 6: Felis Sapiens (three letters) Make a search on Wikipedia, it's the name of an animal with three letters.

Hint 7: 10 to the power of minus 9 (one letter) A unit (very small; like milli but much smaller)

Mistery
12-09-2006, 16:28:50

Zox_of_D00m
12-09-2006, 16:41:49

l c m u n o i c a t n i o

SimplyCrazy
12-09-2006, 17:16:51
OMB! I know the word :D

Wouldn't really be fair to post it, though...

Mistery
12-09-2006, 18:35:19
@Zox
The first letter is wrong, the others are correct.

@Crazy
It's nice of you ;) Well, you must know if you post or not :)

Just my first guess:

Ohara?

Zox_of_D00m
12-10-2006, 00:49:15
nope...

12-27-2006, 01:47:09
YES!!! CONGRATS!!!:hug2:

Mistery
12-27-2006, 01:49:57
Ufff, yay, me happy :D

Okay, here is mine:

Switzerland (2 letters)
Potassium (1 letter)
Debut Album of Kurt Nilsen (1 letter)
Unit of 10 to the power of 12 (1 letter)
Region of the USA in the Northeastern Corner (2 letters)

That's 7 letters. Good luck :)

Kuuurt Niiilseeen??? *chokes* you are evil! :haha: this is hard! not "to the power of" again! :haha:

Mistery
12-27-2006, 02:12:33
ROFL :haha:
At least you seem to be motivated ;)
Well, I had to work on yours for a while aswell ;)

Tip: Use wiki :)

Zox_of_D00m
12-27-2006, 03:50:03
well, the "kurt nilsen" part is not hard... but its evil!! xD (i dont like him:haha:)

Mistery
01-03-2007, 15:31:47
Everybunny given up? :?

It is really not that hard :(

SimplyCrazy
01-04-2007, 02:06:07
CH, K, I, - and NH

I really can't figure out the "Unit of 12" thing, but are the rest correct?

Mistery
01-04-2007, 02:22:21
CH, K, I and N are correct.

However, for the region in the USA you need 2 letters in total, I think you put only one, right?

And for the unit thing, look up "International System of Units" in Wikipedia ;)

You almost got it :)

SimplyCrazy
01-04-2007, 02:28:42
Ok, so I got a P on that one... Is the last one an A?

EDIT: Is it Chapnick?

EDIT2: No wait, that's one letter too much...

EDIT3: Oh, waith, that C wasn't supposed to be there... Chapnik, then :D

Mistery
01-04-2007, 20:03:33
No, sorry. :(

Okay so far you got

Switzerland (2 letters): CH
Potassium (1 letter): K
Debut Album of Kurt Nilsen (1 letter): I
Unit of 10 to the power of 12 (1 letter): *
Region of the USA in the Northeastern Corner (2 letters): N *

The stars mean the missing/wrong letters.

Clue for the solution: a room in the house

Mistery

Hehe, now you need to think of the next "riddle".

Eternal Becky
01-04-2007, 20:38:49

Eternal Becky
01-09-2007, 04:55:14
Do I have to give more hints now? Mistery the link you just posted might give you a lot of possibilities and I agree, but the first result is very close. Search more on that perhaps ;)

Mistery
01-10-2007, 12:21:14
