Riddle 3

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
OK, again, same rules. Only questions that can be answered by a yes or no. If you've heard this, don't answer and spoil all the fun!

I'm thinking you guys may get this one fast, but we'll see:

A MAN IS FOUND DEAD UNDERNEATH A PILE OF BICYCLES. HOW DID HE DIE?

Isn't the internet great? Who would have thought we'd be using it to play riddle games with people all over the world!

Was the man placed there by someone?
Was it murder?
Did the Bikes fall on him?
Was it a fight with someone that lead him to that spot?
Was it a man or woman who did this to him?

No, the man was not placed there by someone.
Yes, it was murder.
Yes, they fell on him.
I'm not sure what this question refers to. Are you asking if it was a fight that caused him to be at the location where he met his death, or if he was already there and it was a fight that caused him to be underneath the pile?
Hmmmmm. I was going to say it isn't relevant, and it really isn't, but chances are good it was a man.

Did the bicycles fall on him before he died?

No, there was no dump truck involved!

Did the bicycles cause the man's death in the same way that a bat to the head would cause death: No.

I'll elaborate on my response for dawnofsierra. Assuming that time of death can be placed at the moment that the death-causing event occured, then yes, he was dead before the pile of bicycles came to be on top of him.

Yes or no questions only... just a reminder.

My bad... thanks! Um... was there a specific number of bikes? Is there any significance to how many bikes there were?

OK, now see, this is why I should have read all the questions that were posted before I started answering, because the answer to all three of your questions is yes.

The bicycles in question were playing cards that were being used for a poker game, where he got murdered by a fellow player who got ticked-off (the dead man cheated). The riddle is essentially solved. It seems silly to make you keep guessing to discover what the murder weapon was (given that the "riddle" portion, the bicycles, has been solved), so we'll call the game! Sheesh. I can only think of two more riddles, and I don't like one of them because I think it's silly. But I'll post that one as #4, because the other one I know is harder than all the rest. Save it for last! And then either I'm going to have to hunt for more riddles or someone else will need to post one!

Is the location important in figuring out the answer to this riddle?

Ha! I'm having fun with this, too. I like word games, and I also like physical puzzles (the cardboard kind, not the rubix cube kind!). I'm only sad that I can't think of any more after #5. And it would be fun if someone else could find a riddle, so I could try it from the guessing side!
