    The rule is that everyone knows there are two of one color, so if he sees two red he's blue, if he sees two blue he's red, if he sees red and blue he's . . . Hmmm I see your point!

    Each one would simply say the colour of the feather on the top of head of the guy in front of him.

    Then each would sacrifice himself for the next person? And the next person again? And in the end all are dead :(

    They will have an agreement that each person would tell the colour of the feather of a person who is right in front of him.. The guy who will say it first will not know what is on top of his head, others all would know what colour feather they have, courtsey the person standing behind him..

    People asked for a 2nd riddle and @indest helped to find another one. I included a version of it in the main post. Feel free to riddle away :)

    The riddle wasnt easy. Not at all. I gave up after 15 min and then I had to read an answer. Deviously clever... Surely the first one had 50/50 chance but the rest was 100% ok.

    The last one is the one of the easiest Riddle of all. I got the last one but the first one I still need help.
    Anyone with better explanation for the first one...

    Interesting that the third was the easiest for you. If you have a specific question about the first riddle just ask away.

    Okay, on the King's wise men one, it seems the one who stands up depends on what the others have + in some cases the one who stands up must wait a second to confirm before standing up. Will get back to you on this. Do you want the answer posted?

    I have a solution to the three wise men, but can't start a convo with you. How can you confirm my idea?
