What can you do at a Wild West schoolhouse? See if you can you solve these riddles?

Posted by on

Last week I discussed the mysterious Question Master riddles that appear in the newspaper and lead treasure hunters to clues that open the green lockboxes found in Bronco County. But we’re not done with riddles, because there are even more puzzling brain teasers to solve.

Mrs. Mowry’s Swellsville classroom taught the player how to fight in Boot Hill Heroes, but in Bounties, those students are back to frustrate the player with mind-twisting riddles. Solving each of the five students’ riddles will earn the player a surprise reward from Mrs. Mowry.

Each riddle has 10 possible answers. But you can’t brute force your way through this because wrong answers will cost you a dollar. These kids have got to earn their lunch money one way or another.

Each chapter, the students come up with a new round of riddles and a new prize to tantalize the player. So that’s five rounds of riddles and 25 riddles total. Can you solve them all? Here are a few that will appear in the game so you can get a head start:

In my dresser at home I have 6 red socks, 4 white socks, 8 green wocks, and 2 black socks. What is the minimum number of socks that I need to pull out in the dark to make sure I have a matching pair?

Last year, this class had two twins, three triplets, and four quadruplets. How many students were in that class?

My right shoe here weighs one pound and half as much as my left shoe. How many pounds do my shoes weigh together?

Me and Bobby each got candy bars. If I give Bobby a candy bar, then we’ll have the same number of candy bars. But if Bobby gave me a candy bar, I would have twice as many as Bobby. How many candy bars do I have?
