The give away

Post  Ming Leung on Thu Jun 16, 2011 9:27 pm

Hello everybody, this is only for XIP members because I can't afford it on Rho, you'll see why... This is a game that might not be played constantly, but it will be active now and then. This game is called "The Give away" because I'm giving away resources. I will give a riddle, puzzle, or question and you guys will have to answer it. I will give you guys 3-5 days to answer it. It will not be a first come first serve type answering because of the different time zones, but if there is more than one of you who gets the right answer, you will choose a number between 1-1000. It will be the luck of the draw unless you guys have a better idea.

YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LOOK UP THE ANSWERS!!!!!! YOU ARE ON THE HONOR SYSTEM!!!!

I will give up to 50k resources at a time, depending on the difficulty. You will also only have 1 try.

If you have a riddle, puzzle, or question that you have yourself, send it to me through ikariam's messaging system.

Here is the first easy question at 2000 crystals...

Some months have 30 days, some months have 31 days. How many months have 28 days?

The answer is 12 months have 28 days. 11 (12 in a leap year) continue to have 29 days and then 11 have 30 days and 7 carry on to have 31 days.

You took all the pills the moment the doctor gave them to you.
Ingesting them is another matter

If I took one when he gave it to me, an hour.

This question is tricky because it's hard to specify the question without giving away the answer. Based on the given question I would also say 1 hour.

Conventional maths =25

Unconventional maths; Divide 30 by (or in) half = 3. Add 10 = 310

I think the problem with the game is that anyone can simply copy and answer and be put in the run for the winning, perhaps the first right answer gets the prize?

But the problem is the time zones. For example. If I put it up now, then one of you who also live in the same time zone. You guys will most likely get it first because everybody else might be at work or asleep.

Are you implying that we actually get away fro Ikariam for more then 5 minutes at a time? That we waste time sleeping and working? Are you nuts?
