A: The Riddle Contest is fun way to stimulate your mind. Best of all, it's absolutely free to play!
Q: Do I have to register? If so, why?

Q: What happens after somebody wins?
A: If somebody wins, we will start a new contest with new riddles. The old riddles will still remain archived if you want to solve them for fun.
Q: Are the answers case sensitive?
A: No, our scripts make sure that your answers will work regardless of uppercase or lowercase letters.
Q: Why isn't my answer working properly? I know it's right!
A: You might have the right concept, but the wrong word. Check a thesaurus for alternate words. If your answer is numerical, be sure to type in the number itself, NOT the spelling of the number.

A: That information is classified, sorry.
Q: Can I work on the questions with a friend, or play with a team?
A: Absolutely! We encourage teams as well as participation in our online community.
Q: Does this go on forever with an endless number of rounds?
A: No, it does not. Believe it or not, this contest does end. When it ends, we will start a new one with new riddles.
Q: So how does each contest end?
A: When someone solves all the riddles and notifies an administrator, we will review the player's answers. Upon review, we may ask that player to prove how he/she solved some select riddles. This is a measure against cheating and hacking. If everything checks out, that player wins.
If you have any more questions, feel free to post them in the forums. If another player cannot answer your question, try contacting an administrator.
