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.
