Monday Mysteries: "A Study in Chalk" Chapter Four
You're invited to have some fun with riddles, puzzles, and storytelling this September.
It's the first day of school, but when you arrive the doors are locked. You've got to find a way inside, but your only clues seem to be chalk drawings that lead you from one place to another. How will your first day of school turn out?
Previous chapters can be found in the related content below. A new mystery starts next Monday, October 2nd at 8am on Northland Morning. Monday Mysteries is supported by Duluth Coffee Company Kitchen and Café.
And a bonus schoolyard riddle...
You head out to the playground and race for the swings. There's only one left and you get there at the same time as one of your classmates. This classmate is not particularly trustworthy, but they suggest a fair way to figure out who gets the swing. They take out a small bag and tell you that inside is one orange candy and one blue candy. You are instructed to reach in without looking and take one of the candies. If you pick the orange one, you get the swing.
You have a sneaky suspicion that there's no orange candy in the bag at all, but rather two blue candies, making it impossible for you to win. However, you agree to the deal anyway.
Even with no orange candy to pull from the bag, how can you guarantee that you'll get the swing?
