Since time immemorial, people have challenged each other with different things – board/card games, puzzles, riddles, or any other type of brainteaser.
It is a bit unclear why, but most people solve challenges faster when there is someone to compete with. Maybe it’s because puzzles trigger our competitive instincts more than other activities.
It is also healthy for the brain to solve a riddle from time to time. It helps everything “up there” to stay fresh and sharp!
Today, riddles are perhaps something we mostly associate with newspapers and magazines. But if you look around a bit online, you will soon find out that there tons of awesome riddles available with just the click of a button.
