Horse's Attack

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

Cool- got it first go!

Hm, maybe it would be better in the trick category...?

Yay for riddles!!!
Mar 08, 2009

lol yeahh(:
the trick category seems swell(:

ughh.. i didn't get it until i checked the answer -.-
Mar 09, 2009

No it is just right it should be in the Mystery category.

Ok, what's this about? "queen (queen) horse (knight)"? Call it what it is. I got this right obviously but there is no "horse" in chess. It's a knight. Might as well say that a stapler attacked a penguin..."penguin (queen) stapler (knight)"..I realize I'm stretching a little but it helps get my point across. Knights do not look like horses in all chess sets.

Don't be so negative Zembobo, it looks like a horse to me

Nice teaser for your first one. Try and make it a little harder for the next.

that so hard it almost took me a whole secon

God zembobo, the knight on the shess board does look like a horse

Although the chess piece does look like a horse, it is called a knight, so in the riddle it should be as well.

If you change it to "knight", it would be even easier. If people are going to worry about using the correct terms in teasers, half the teasers on this site will have to be changed.

And it should be in Trick or Situation. Not Mystery. I personally think Situation would be best.

I liked it but thought it was kind of easy.

Zembobo the knight is usually a horse's head. I grew up with chess players.

kinda easy.i grew up with chess.but still nice try for the first time.

I thought it was a rocking horse. Chess Pieces are just as good. Decent Teaser, keep them coming.

Nice teaser. Maybe it should be under "Trick" section?
Jun 28, 2009

i also think it should be in situation, but it was good
Jul 15, 2009

really nice and easy
Aug 21, 2009

pretty easy--there wasn't much to confuse.

well, i think the knight looks more like a horse,
but if you want to know, the queen looks like a fountain to me ;)

I wonder if the horse jumped over a castle to get to the queen...oops, sorry Zembobo, I mean rook!

You could say a knight attacked a queen, or a horse attacked a funny looking piece of wood. A horse attacked a queen if pushing it.

this was far too easy.
