Awesome app!!!

I just finished solving all the riddles with a balance of 732 points!! My sister introduced this app to me in November and I played it in my spare time. A few times I accidentally hit clues when changing the letters around. I wonder who has the highest points! A really fun app that makes you look outside the box. Love it!!

Poor Grasp of English

Many of these riddles are excellent but a substantial percentage appear to have been written by someone who speaks English as a second language or were written by someone who does not quite grasp the point of riddles. The object of a riddle is to provide RELEVANT information about the solution. Tricky word uses are great as are clues that don't have an obvious connection to the solution. However if the provided information has no connection with the riddle it isn't really a brain teaser - it's a guessing game. Guessing games and riddles are quite different. My recommendation is to look back over the clues and solutions. Any riddles with clues that aren't relevant need to be revised or replaced.

Great if you are not good with riddles

I struggle, really struggle, with riddles. But this app gives you a break: for credits earned for solving you can get hints like what is the first letter, or how many letters, etc. it gives you a fighting chance! Great app!
