Puzzles: Riddles, Brainteasers, and Games

November 5, 2009

The Old Farmer’s Almanac has always included puzzles to amuse the mind—from riddles to math teasers. Try these for starters …

Riddles
 

1. Soon as I’m made, I’m sought with care, for one whole year consulted. That time elapsed, I’m thrown aside, neglected and insulted. See the answer.

2. Often we are covered with wisdom and wit, and oft with a cloth where the dinner guests sit; In beauty around you and over your head, we are countless, though numbered when bound to be read. See answer.
