Re:Ask a stupid riddle

Post by 37Herbie » Wed Dec 06, 2006 9:02 am

I'm not sure about the most stupid but definently the most stupidly hard had to be one of Owen the Dragon's!

"What is the largest Ring in the Land?"

I think the answer was meant to be Ascot (The Horse Racing Track) which is a little bit unfair! Haven't watched it for a while though so not sure if this is exactly how it was said!

Ah, yes, the infamous Series 3 Level 3 riddles....

You've actually got them slightly mixed up somehow.

In Leo's quest (Team 4) it was the gargoyle who asked what the largest ring in the land was, and the answer happened to be "Avebury".

In Martin's quest (Team 11) Owen the dragon asked what the likes of the stag and deer hunter were, to which the answer was "Beetle".

Hope that helps.

LATER EDIT: modified to accommodate the actual correct answer.

The answer to the ring riddle is Avebury, which is a village in Wiltshire that is completely surrounded by a ring of standing stones.

The ring of standing stones at Avebury is actually quite famous, so I think it was a fair enough riddle to include.

Ah, that be it!

Still harsh that had to get that 1 question correct, otherwise you failed the entire quest!

A Fair enough Riddle to incude but a "YOU MUST GET RIGHT OR FAIL" is harsh in comaprison to other series Level 3's! Series 3 was definently the hardest Level 3 in all the series!

Well maybe it was harsh, maybe not, but that doesn't mean there was anything wrong with the riddle itself.
