 Six faces and 21 eyes?   « on: Oct 19th, 2003, 4:37pm » Quote Modify Remove

I don't know the difficulty of this but I couldn't get it and its really bugging me. If anyone knows what it is I would appreciate you posting it.

What has six faces,
But does not wear makeup.
It also has twenty-one eyes,
But cannot see?

Hint:These things have a relation to the answer: Monopoly, Trouble
These don't: Twister, Chess

Highlight the blank to see the hint.  BTW, this needs a move.

Mistysakura, I will dispute your clue:This item in Trouble does not have 21 'eyes', it is marked differently.

Another clue: The eyes are the same kind often associated with a snake.

A couple more hints:

1. Looking at it from a different angle, it has only one "eye".
2. The eyes are distibuted unevenly accross the faces (STD=1.87).

Some people are average, some are just mean.

I dispute your dispute. Because the object which is the answer to the riddle does have other forms than how it is discribed in the first post, while still keeping the same name.

Box cars!

The "eyes" are the 21 pips.
