Good Riddles

What makes a good riddle? Here at lovelyriddles.com we rate each riddle before being added to our database. The riddles are rated based on difficulty and its ability to use language and/or logic to puzzle the solver. The first standard, difficulty, is essentially how hard the riddle is to solve. We try out each riddle to determine how long it takes to solve the riddle. Especially hard riddles may stump you to the point that you are unable to solve the riddle the first time around. That's ok! Put the riddle down and come back to it later. Luckily, we provides a huge number of riddles and answers, so you may always surrender to the riddle and skip right to the answer or to the next riddle. The second criteria is the adherence of the "riddle" to the definition of a true riddle. The definition of a riddle can be found at A true riddle uses language to puzzle the reader by providing an enigma or conundra. Logical riddles require no significant amount of prior fact-based knowledge to solve, and a good riddle shouldn't.

For I am the center of gravity.

Valueless if bought, but sometimes traded.
A poor man may give one as easily as a king.
When one is broken pain and deceit are assured.

Who buys it, has no use for it.
Who uses it can neither see nor feel it.

I build up castles.
I tear down mountains.
I make some men blind,
I help others to see.
What am I?

6 That never rust

Glittering points
That downward thrust,
Sparkling spears
That never rust.

7 Never feel me

Die without me,
Never thank me.
Walk right through me,
Never feel me.
Always watching,
Never speaking.
Always lurking,
Never seen.

8 As cold as death

Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking

9 First they champ

Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still.

10 I am seen in the water

I am seen in the water
If seen in the sky,
I am in the rainbow,
A jay’s feather,
And lapis lazuli.
