In the two-person version, players take turns posing each other riddles; each time, the answerer guesses and the riddler either agrees that the answer is correct or reveals the correct answer. Each time a player fails to guess a riddle correctly, the riddler scores a point.
In multi-player games, permit each player other than the riddler to guess; riddler gets one point for each wrong answer, but no points if no-one guesses correctly.
To prevent the tactic of simply posing vague or nonsensical riddles especially in the two-player gameit is helpful to have a vocal audience. Also, players may award "style points" to each other, or the audience to either.
A style point is due if the answerer thinks of an answer which is not what the riddler intended, but works just as well or better; or, from the audience, for any unusually poetic, tricky, or beautiful riddle.
The riddle-game works best if the players think of it not as cut-throat competition but as a performance art, like a jam session with words. A Challenge I love to compose riddles I wrote all the examples above that aren't explicitly attributed.
