The Battle

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

Eight in a row,
with nowhere to go,
except for the two
who can jump straight through.

Eight out in front,
not one a runt.
Across the range,
to make a change.

By foot or by horse,
they stay the course.
Til the victory is won,
And the battle is done.

What does this represent?

Super easy but I like this one a lot!

Very smart! Even though I got it on the first verse, I thought it was very clever how it was worded.

thank you. i am glad to hear you like it. i know it is easy, but it just popped ibto my head almost fully formed and I like to go easy on occasion, knowing the age range of Brainglers.

Good teaser; very clever! However, that being said, not every match has a victor - some end in a draw.

Posted by fishmed on Sep 25, 2013

True, but I could not figure out how to rhyme that part.

Posted by wolfpackw2 on Sep 25, 2013

Understood, fishmed.

I don't know anything about chess so it was difficult for me. Very clever though! My boyfriend knows how to play chess I might see if he can show me.

That was a very easy teaser, yet a very satisfying and fun one! Good job! Maybe try posting ones about checkers, backgammon, or other common board games.

that's a good idea, commander. hope the name is ok, as I dont know you well enough yet to call you Bold. ;) i will start ponderong those and see what comes to mind... hmmm... "black & red & red & black. some go forward, others back..." well, you never know... guess I'll keep thinking. glad to hear you liked this one. ttfn
