The Riddler from the original Batman series.

The riddle challenge has been completed, we're delighted to announce our winner is Alvaro Hurtado. As soon as we can track him down we'll give him his prize and force him to join us in a selfie.

Meanwhile, for those who participated and want to know the answers, here they are:

Riddle #1

What grows up while growing down?
A goose. (Duck is also acceptable.)

Riddle #2

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, cannot be heard, cannot be smelt. It lies behind stars and under hills, and empty holes it fills. It comes first and follows after, ends life, kills laughter.
Darkness. (We also accepted shadow.)

Riddle #3

What can go up a chimney down, but can’t go down a chimney up?
Fittingly, an umbrella! (No, there are none left.)

Riddle #4

I add 5 to 9 and get 2. The answer is correct, so what am I?
A clock.

Riddle #5

I am rarely touched but often held, and if you are smart you'll use me well. What am I?
A tongue.

Riddle #6

I can never be stolen from you. I am owned by everyone. Some have more, some have less. What am I?

Riddle #7

I crawl on the earth and rise on a pillar. What am I?

Riddle #8

What has a bell but isn't a church. Is full of air but is not a balloon?
A trumpet.

Riddle #9

It can be repeated but rarely in the same way. It can't be changed but can be rewritten. It can be passed down, but should not be forgotten.
History. (Git commits was a good answer, but nope.)

Riddle #10

Through its wounds, water does run. It once held many but now has none. What is it?
A shipwreck.

We have some bonus riddles left, and some Code Enigma hoodies to give away, if anyone still wants to play! Come and see us and we can give you a hoodie riddle. 

See everyone at the quiz night!

The GDPR bit

We do ask for your email so we can contact the winner. Full disclosure, we will add you to our newsletter, but we won't use your email address to market to you directly, nor will we share it with anybody else. And don't worry, we only write about two newsletter issues a year because we're usually too busy doing Drupal things!
