  • Problem-solving and lateral thinking challenges. Students can't Google the answers (because the riddles are unique) so they have to think strategically and experience some delayed gratification!

Buying this product gives you a password which then unlocks an online file to use in class - so it needs an internet connection to work.

I have done my very best to make this game playable on any device (even phones!) but for the best experience, I’d recommend using a browser or iPad.

I'm planning to update and expand this resource over time to give you the best experience possible - I may change the game code from time to time (don’t worry I’ll let you know, and you'll get an updated code when you re-download the product file).

Still not convinced? Here's a sample riddle:


I guard doors and windows from thieves in the night.

I am the reaction of cowards in flight.

The coil of cloth, the arrow from bow,

The wrath of the Gods on mere mortals below.

Hmmm...finding it tricky? Here's a hint:

The answer is _ _ _ _ letters long.

Need another hint?

What do gods strike mortals with when they're angry?

That's right, you got it, the answer is...


-I hope you enjoyed that! ;)
