16 Complex Riddles That’ll Keep You Thinking For Far Too Long
Everyone likes a good riddle or two right? Alright, maybe not everyone, but those that do, enjoy the little tickle of satisfaction you get when you figure out the answer. If you’re not a riddle person, then a riddle might piss you off. That’s ok too.
These ones might seem a little complex upon first read (or not), but once you read the answer, you’re gonna smack your head in frustration. That’s okay, I did it too.
The answers are at end, to give people a chance to figure it out with out spoiling for themselves. Or just to the end to figure it out asap. I don’t care. I’m not your mom.
Happy problem solving!
