I contain faces of different colors
for fun they get mixed with one another
It's easy for them to hang outside their 'race'
but it's quite tricky to put them back in their place
With time and patience it can be done
but to mix them up again is way more fun.



Answer

A Rubik's cube
Hide

TiggrAus*

yes they do still have them.
Sad thing is I've been trying to figure one out since I was six and I'm going to be 23 next month, and I've yet to finish one.

easy, but fun.

and immuray... because you haven't commented yet, i am going to say something to you first:

NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR YOUR SNIDE COMMENTS! every day that is all we get from you.
GebbieRoseAus*
May 24, 2006

nice teaser - good rhyming, too. spent two hours once upon a time trying to put one of those things together - got it down to two spaces. never tried again.
GebbieRoseAus*
May 24, 2006

Tiggr, there is actually a solution to those things! even contests to see who can "solve" them the fastest.
OldChinaHand**
May 24, 2006

Amen to Imurray comment.

This teaser was well done and fun. But 'it was way more fun' smashing one with a hammer. The R'cubed drove me nuts.

Great Teaser. I actually got one once. Took me about 4 months but I got it.

May 24, 2006

Oh, didnt get it, waaaaaahhhhh!!!

I always find a way to blame it on someone else when I don't get one, but this AM, I'm sparing you! I couldn't think of an accusation. It's simply that I haven't seen one of those for like, at least a thousand years, lol!

Anyway, that was good, thanks!

I forgot about the Rubik's Cube.
BeckyD*
May 24, 2006

I liked it a lot! It was easy, but fun! At first I thought it was going to be a rainbow because of the colors... then I thought maybe a marble game like Chinese Checkers. Then I realized it was the Rubik's Cube. Nicely written poem, and a fun teaser!! *****
bradon182001*us*

Good teaser. I couldn't think of anything except maybe snowflake, but that didn't really fit either.

May 24, 2006

I liked it, but didn't figure it out. I think what was holding me back was the 'race' part. Good one though!

Good teaser, i didn't get it, The race part through me off. Oh well.

I thought it was a box of crayons because of the whole color thing, and hard to put back. But it was a good one...forgot all about the R Cube!!!

iteachkidsAus*
May 24, 2006

I got it, I GOT IT! And right away! I do think it helped that just yesterday, I did a crossword puzzle that needed the first name of Mr. Rubrik. I didn't know that, but learned that it is Erno. There - now YOU learned something!
iteachkidsAus*
May 24, 2006

OOps - I mean Rubik!
kboardma*us*
May 24, 2006

That was a lot more fun than tinkering with a rubik's cube. That thing drove me crazy. A friend actually bought me the little stickers that you could put over the squares so they could be lined up properly again. LOL

I too thought this was a deck of cards - althought I guess they don't have a world of color - but did you ever try and get a royal flush?
tonjawithaj*us*
May 24, 2006

I love it!
scallioAus*
May 24, 2006

Good one! You got me.
I thought flowers- seeds plant themselves in different areas, gardening work can put them back in order, fun to mix 'em up in a bouquet.

May 24, 2006

I got it...but since i never seem to get any of them i thought i must be wrong...but i wasn't !!!!! very clever on the wording...more please..
xeses*us*
May 24, 2006

I thought it was an artists pallet. Of course, that makes no sense since you can't unmix oil paints, nor is it 6 sided. But other than that I was close.
AwwwSweet*
May 24, 2006

Terrific teaser! Have to agree with OCH on the hammer smashing fun...
kwelchansAus*
May 24, 2006

Easy but fun. I LOVE Rubik's cubes. I have a whole collection of them at home. I like to mix them up in different patterns. It IS more fun to mix them up.
vlermaAus*
May 24, 2006

I'm old enough to remember the Rubic's Cube and several more that came after. One was even eight sided. But the origianal was still the best. I see it brought back memories for a lot of us. I did get the teaser, right off the bat, easy and fun. But I was totally impressed with the poetry writing. Now that took class. Good job. More please.

I liked this one..my first thought was crayons and then 6 sided made me think R'cube. Thanks!

CHILD'S PLAY!
thecelticgod*
May 24, 2006

Fun. The poetry was very well done and flowed nicely. For those who got hung up on race - notice that race was in single quotes. That's your cue that it is a metaphor - another indication of a very well constructed riddle.

Talk about 'CHILD'S PLAY', imurray, grow up, get a life and move on.

The hint gave me the answer. Nice puzzle you wrote.
Smart_AlexAph*
May 24, 2006

I've never once put together a rubik's cube, but somehow I actually got this one. Great riddle! (Not just because I actually got the answer)

it was hard;like a rubix cube!LOL
RRAMMOHAN*in*

Strangely, I thought of a ray of light passing through a prism! Too far fetched! This teaser floored me. A nice one, though!

Imurray....if you're so dissatisfied with this site, please stop visiting it and try visiting an email/chat-room etiquette site.

auntiesisAus*
May 24, 2007

I could not get this one, and I used to love rubic's cube. I haven't played with it in years, so maybe that is why I didn't think of it. Great teaser.

May 24, 2007

Fun! For some reason my first thought was some sort of liquid, but I got it in the end. Nice one!

A KOREAN LAD CAN SOLVE A RUBIK'S CUBE ON AVERAGE IN 11 SECONDS.

THE WORLD RECORD IS ABOUT 10 SECONDS.

AbsurdHero*us*
May 24, 2007

Interesting. I was thinking it was a deck of playing cards, but the 52 card Pick-Up connection grew less and less likely as the riddle went on.

Also, lmurray is an idiot.
MadelulabelleAus*
May 24, 2007

That was really easy, but it was cleverly worded and I like it. I have a friend who can do the rubiks cube with his eyes closed. I can barely get one side done...

The Old Rubiik's Cube Trick....very nicely done! I was stumped. My guess was stamps.

I got it right away!! Yeah!! Good teaser, I also thought a box of crayons for a moment. Until it said that it is more fun messed up. HeeHee!!!
anion*

Good teaser...it was nice and easy. I don't think imurray is leaving bad messages now. He seems to have changed his attitude. just my thoughts...

anyways keep up the good work
cheeny13Aus*
May 24, 2007

I was thinking all over the place.. (except the right place!!) play-doh, deck of cards, colored dice ( ). The colored dice should have given some power the lightbulb in the brain, but, alas, it did not! Oh well, great one anyway!!
CaleythiaAus*
May 24, 2007

Great riddle. At first I was thinking crayons, but by the end of the riddle I had it. I did "solve" one, in a way, when I was a kid. I took all the stickers off the cube and put them back on so it was solved. Not what the designers had in mind, but it worked for me.
debbie64us
May 24, 2007

I thought it was a great teaser! Probably because I could figure it out much easier than the cube. When I was a kid I learned how to take it apart and put it back together correctly. My friends and family all thought I was brilliant when I would come back from "thinking" with the puzzle solved!
doeheadAus*
May 24, 2007

Old,Easy,another waste of my time.Immurray and I are probably the only two people who really lay the truth on the line. C'mon you others tell the real truth when you see these grade school teasers. are you afraid of the ridicule or are you that undereducated? /
puttumupus*
May 24, 2007

wow a very easy teaser..but very nicely writtn out and very well explained
saxman*us*
May 24, 2007

I needed the hinh. As soon as I saw it was a six sided figure, I "knew" it was a cube. Well written, though. I rated it meduim difficult.

I couldnt get it, but i tried. Just not good at these teasers but this one was cute.

Wow, I thought it was a paint palette (mixing the paint) and I forgot to check the hint. Great teaser though!
babyceeus*
May 24, 2007

at first glance, i thought of a box of crayons, but by the time i finished reading it to the end, i got the right answer. great teaser.

A KOREAN LAD CAN SOLVE A RUBIK'S CUBE ON AVERAGE IN 11 SECONDS.


I think there is a logical error in this statement. The ability to solve a Rubik's Cube (or any other puzzle, for that matter) is neither sex nor Nationally-linked. The statement (possibly) should read, "A product of the Korean Education System can solve ..."
j9mattfieldAus*
May 24, 2007

I enjoyed this teaser - thanks! I had to read it through a couple of times, and the "race" part threw me off, but I got it. And thank you, all of you who, take the time to put these teasers here for us. Whether you write them yourself or get them from somewhere else. Those that are "old" to some are "new" to others. And being that human brains are as different as the human themselves, they do not all work alike. A teaser that is is "easy" to one is not easy to another. I come here not only for the challenge, but for the fun. A person that submits anything to Braingle is opening themselves to ridicule, and fortunately (note the sarcasm) there are those who are full of nothing but. So again, my gratitude to all of you who give of your time. Most of us appreciate it.

May 24, 2007

Here's my issue with riddles. Either you get it fairly quickly and it feels way too easy, or you're stumped and it feels way too hard. No in-between, hence I'm not a big fan of them. Give me something to work out!!
speedqueenkmwAus*
May 24, 2007

I also thought of pla-dough but got it after the hint. nice job

May 24, 2007

I also thought of a prism. But then it came to me in a flash.
Try The Cube.

I laughed when I was right.

Thanks all who make these up. I will try one day & open myself up
to ridicule as one memeber wrote.

I thought it was well-written, but extremely easy...I knew what it was after the first line.

However, I do think you did a good job.

May 24, 2007

Well written!! I had just seen "The Pursuit of Happyness" and the Rubik's Cube was fresh in my mind.

Good Job!

Oh, and LMURRAY, are you speaking of one specific Korean lad? I believe the current record is held by American Toby Mao at 10.48 secs. http://www.recordholders.org/en/list/rubik.html

I didn't understand the reference to "race." Can someone explain? Got the answer, though.

mband*
May 25, 2007

Err... "to mix them up again is way more fun" is a rather subjective statement that doesn't really belong in a riddle. I personally preferred solving it to mixing it up.

HABS2933Aca*
May 25, 2013

Had it in mind by the end of the line about faces of different colours, knew it for sure after the part about mixing them together.
As a child of the 80s, Rubiks Cubes were all the rage and everyone had (at least) one. Like many young kids who gave up, we removed the stickers from his and "solved" it what way. Then we took mine apart and put it back together with the colours in order. That ruined it, it never turned after that. We finally solved my sister's properly, which is good since I am not sure our parents would have bought us another one after we ruined 3!

This site attracts people of all ages, I would expect that there would be teasers to keep them all coming back. It is possible that this teaser was written by an eighth grader for the grade school crowd.

Lighten up negative nelly.
