Solve The Mystery--Game

Here you go

Vince did it.

Joyce’s statements 1 and 3 must be true. If she had broken the window, both statements would have been false. But since each child told only one lie, these two statements must be true. Therefore, Joyce’s statement 2 is the one that is false.

The statement of all the other children can then be proven true or false using this information.

Since we know that Joyce’s statement 2 is false, Sally’s statement 1 and Matt’s statement 1 have to be false. Joe’s statement 2 has to be false, since Sally did not tell who did it. Now we are left only with Vince.

I found one :smiley:, it’s a bit long, so maybe it’s too long for you on smartphones? I haven’t looked at the answer yet, so i will try to resolve it as well :blush:.

Emily was sitting at her study table, home alone, on a cold and stormy night. Her parents had taken a flight earlier in the morning to Australia as her grandmother had passed away. She had wanted to follow her parents but she had an important English examination the next day which she could not miss.

The storm was getting heavier by the minute and the wind was howling outside. All this noise made it very hard for her to concentrate. She was on the verge of dozing off when she was shaken alert by a sudden “THUD!” She dismissed it as a window which had been slammed shut by the wind.

She tried to concentrate on her books when she heard faint footsteps. Emily got out of her room and looked around when suddenly, without warning, she was grabbed by the neck. She tried to scream but it came out as a mere whimper as the intruder was pressing hard against her throat with his arm. She tried to free herself from his grip but to no avail.

“Give me all your money!” growled the man who had grabbed her from behind.

“Th-there is none h-here! Please ll-let me go!” cried Emily.

“Don’t LIE TO ME!” screamed the increasingly agitated man. She felt the man strengthen his grip around her neck. She said nothing and a few seconds passed by in silence. Suddenly the phone rang which alerted both of them.

“People will get suspicious if I don’t answer the phone,” said Emily, with a controlled voice. The intruder let her go.

“Alright, but NO funny business, or ELSE!” said the nervous intruder. Emily walked toward the phone. She took a deep breath and calmed herself. She picked up the phone.

“Hey Em! How’s the revision going?” said the caller.

“Hey Anna. Thanks for the call. Hey you know those Science notes I lent you last week? Well I really need them back. It would be a great help to me. It’s an emergency, so if you could give me them tomorrow it would be great. Please hurry in finding the notes. I need to get back to my books now. Bye,” Emily said. She hung up the phone.

“It was wise of you not to say anything,” said the intruder, although he was more than a bit confused by her conversation.

“Now TELL ME WHERE THE MONEY IS KEPT!” screamed the thief.

“It…it’s…in my dad’s room. The first room on the right. Third drawer,” said Emily.

“SHOW me!” said the man, and removed his grip around her neck. She took a big gulp of air and nearly fell. She swallowed hard and said a silent prayer. She walked slowly, in silence, toward her father’s room. All of a sudden, they heard police sirens. The intruder froze in his footsteps. He ran to the nearest window and jumped out of it.

Emily ran outside in time to see the intruder being escorted into the car. She saw Anna and she ran toward her and hugged her.

“Smart kids,” said the policeman.

What had happened?


#146

If the phone was used, Emily could’ve used the mute button, right?
She could block out parts of the conversation so her friend would only hear ‘help’, ‘emergency’ , ‘please hurry’, and would call the police. It’s plausible…


#147

Not bad, i think you are right, i have to check the answer, will be right back…

Edit.

It’s correct! :smiley:

Answer
Emily had used the mute button during her conversation with Anna so that all Anna heard was: “call…help…emergency…please hurry”. Anna, sensing something was wrong, called the police and told them Emily’s address. The police were able to come to Emily’s house in time to catch the perpetrator.


#148

Thanks, it was just a guess, but you know…
Anyway we should do this more often, it helps us to flex our asaassin-brain muscles.
With Hitman Day coming up seems like everyone is busy


#149

I think this one can help us flex our assassin-brain muscles :joy: i have no idea who the winner is, didn’t look at the answer, not yet anyway.

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?


#150

This is a tough one but I guess it has something to do with Riddler’s declaration at the end…
Edit: is it David Gardner??
Because[quote=“ingrobny, post:149, topic:15551”]
“OK now everyone…!”
“The winner of…”
"‘The Hardest Riddle Ever’ Event…"
[/quote]

In the third line the first letter of each word spells ‘three’ suggesting that the third guest won??


#151

It is a though one, i looked at the answer, i will try to give you a hint, words to letters, letters to numbers.

“OK now everyone…!”
“The winner of…”
"‘The Hardest Riddle Ever’ Event…"
"(Here will the winner name be)"


#152

You are getting close :smiley:.


#153

OK this has nothing to do with the riddle, but is English your first language?? Cause is it just me or is your English a little funny? Or maybe I’m just imagining it! No offense by the way


#154

@ingrobny is it David Gardner??Edit: is it Veronica Andrews, cause the first letters of each word of each line spells one,two,three respectively. So 1+2+3=6, suggesting that the sixth person win??


#155

OK now everyone…!”
The winner of…”
"‘The Hardest Riddle Ever’ Event…"


#156

Hahaha no i’m a norwegian and no offense taken :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:, i think i mix all kinds of english words, i didn’t write the riddles, maybe my post is in funny english :joy:? I was asked if i was scottish on another forum :joy:.

Nope :smiley:.


#157

Fun fact: I started typing the answer b4 the last hint.
Is that funny tho??


#158

Is it Veronica Andrews??? I mentioned this above but you seem not to have seen it.


#159

That’s correct :smiley:

“OK now everyone…!”
“The winner of…”
"‘The Hardest Riddle Ever’ Event…"
And the winners name would be here on the fourth line :wink:.


#160
