Why would only two ladies be at a wedding and why would they fight? The answer was obvious.

Very good - it makes perfect sense (even though I didn't guess it!). The only thing I could come up with was in the realm of the reality show "Bachelorette". Got me.

Very good Riddle! I didn't know the answer and I felt pretty dumb when I saw what it was. But something that's obvious without being so is the best riddle.

Your brain teasers are the corniest I ever read. What makes them hard is that you have to think corny. Real brain teaser are suppose to make you think, not think of corny jokes.

Try this wording instead, It flows better.

Thirty men with ladies, two,
Standing 'round with naught to do,
Dressed in formal, black and white,
Urge them forward, start a fight.

Very easy. But, to make sure, I had to diagram it (a chess board) on paper. It's one of the BEST as far as I'm concerned. Definitely in the FAVORITES HALL OF FAME for me!!

Well written! I don't care for riddles like this though, there are a number of varying answers. A bunch of aristocrats playing musical chairs comes to mind.

Nov 24, 2008

I don't play chess either, but I know enough about it to have guessed correctly. However I thought the chess pieces came in all different colors. That almost threw me. My son's set was in royal costumes. What gives?
HABS2933Aca*
Nov 24, 2011

Babe - a standard chess set the pieces are white and black. However there are many specially boards you can buy. My one nephew has loved chess since he was about 4 years old and must have at least 10 boards, some have the standard puces, one has pieces that are at least 12' inches high, one has mythical creatures instead of the standard ones.

Nov 24, 2011

First guess was chess, then i thought of 32, but then the kings? great riddle.
