The game's very simple. You just have to post a riddle, and the person who posts next should try answering it, and should post their own riddle.
Example:
Why do birds fly South in winter?

Mom and Dad have four daughters, and each daughter has one brother. How many people are in the family?

7. Because the 4 daughters have the same brother. Mom + Dad + 4 daughters + 1 brother > 7. Nice one Marc

Another one for the cluedup Sleuths:
Which month has 29 days every leap year?
It's not as simple as it first looks...

Isn't it Feb?

Every month (because every month has 29 days standard) and february in a leap year also has 29 days

I am a three digit number.
My tens digit is five more than my ones digit.
My hundreds digit is eight less than my tens digit.
What number am I?

Easy: 194 .. right??? the last clue (eight less makes it fixed).
Okay my turn:
I'll Use names from sleuth members to narrate this (so don't mind)
After many sleuth years Ercule returns to check on the fellow sleuthers, and stumbles on to Lyra, she asks him with a smile," Long time no see , how's life... r u married?? Kids???"
Ercule Replies, "yeah.. alas... three kids.."
Lyra asks," well how old they are ".. so ercule says, "well their product of ages is 36"... lyra (the math genius) bewildered says, "umm, not sure can u give more hints"
ercule says, "well, their sum of ages is the number opposite to that house"
Lyra swears under breath "you geek" and says " well any more hints???"
ercule finally said," well as you know i like my senpai Sal so much, i named my elder son 'Sal'"....
Then Lyra said... "oh! now i got it"
__________________________
So question what are the ages of those three kids . (dont worry it is solveable mathematically)

Is the answer:
4, 3, and 3?
4*3*3=36

4*3*3 is 36 but so is 6*6*1,9*4*1 etc
y is that the answer??? think... there are 3 statements and each signifies something...
I just gave the hint to the 1st one (as 36 can be broken up into many ways) so Lyra couldnt solve it, the next two statement made her find the answer... :)
