'The Hardest Riddle Ever' Event
Mystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
This past weekend, Dr. Riddler invited a group of friends to a party of puzzles and games. During the night, Dr. Riddler presented a "special riddle" to his guests. Whoever figured it out fastest would win a great prize!
The six guests who attended were Calvin Peterson, Florence Oak, David Gardner, Lester Page, Joel Pastor, and Veronica Andrews. After a lavish dinner and a few more hours of puzzle fun, Dr. Riddler began to announce the name of the person who figured out the "special riddle:"
"OK now everyone...!"
"The winner of..."
"'The Hardest Riddle Ever' Event..."
But before the good doctor could congratulate the winner, a loud noise from outside interrupted him. However, everyone knew who had won.
Who won and how do you know?
HintThis puzzle could easily be placed in the "Series" category.
Florence Oak won.
The first letter of each word in a line of Dr. Riddler's speech spells out the numbers One, Two, and Three.
The next number being Four means that Florence Oak is the only person who could've won.
His last line would have been: Florence Oak: Ultimate Riddler!

|I thought the "OK" was "Oak" something.|

|I totally thought everyone was the winner. "Ok now, everyone, the winner..."|

|I must be either dense or tired because I don't get this at all. |
It was clear that the introduction spelled ONE, TWO, THREE, but how can we tell that the winner will be Florence based on the assumption that the next line of the announcement will be FOUR? How does the number four automatically mean Florence? Does Florence mean 4 in another language? My guess was to pick Joel or Mr. Page because their names had 4 letters.
I hope you guys won't be making me feel like a complete idiot when you point out something entirely obvious!

|Awww... got it completely wrong.|
I thought that the 'loud noise from outside' was someone shouting out FLORENCE OAK!!'
Then everyone would know who won it.

|i would have never thought of that|

|what i thought was:-|
The Hardest Riddle Ever Event is THREE (all initial letters), so guy 3, i.e. david gardner
Apr 16, 2011
|I knew it had something to do with the capital letters and I went with Oak only because the first letters of the phrase "The Hardest Riddle Ever Event spells the word "T-H-R-E-E" and "Oak" was the only name with 3 letters.|

|Yeah...no one really pays attention to the first letters of stuff... I got the ok thing too. Like he could be saying: Oak! Hey, now, everyone, etc. I don't think this is in the right category though... Language would be better.|

|I saw the 1, 2 , 3 part but I didn't really figure out what it meant. |
