Riddles Contest 2.0: Winners and Answers!

Posted · Report post

Congratulations to our winner 9876gwen who will have a choice of a $50 gift certificate to the Official Green Day Store or clear Demolicious vinyl and Danny for winning the wristbands by completing the riddles first!

Answers

Riddle 1: First Riddle Post

Explanation: This riddle was inspired by Mike's awesome hashtag use on Instagram.

The first and second hashtags contains Instagram's slogan "Capture and Share the World's Moments", which should have lead you to an instagram image.

The second hashtag also contains Green Day Moments which should have lead to one of the band members images.

The third hashtag is another hint to Instagram because users often use #nofilter on the rare occasion when their images contain no filter.

The final hashtag indicates that the answer will be found on GDA.

Answer: This photo from Mikes Instagram found in the Instagram photo album on GDA.

Riddle 2

Explanation: The Moonman, record player, and orange blimp are trophies for awards Green Day won during the American Idiot era. This should have lead you to the American idiot section in the Awards page. The awards page is a list of all the awards Green Day has won or been nominated for. Winners of awards often thank their families and friends who have helped them along the way.

Answer: Awards Page

Riddle 3: Part 1

Explanation: God Told Me to Skin You Alive is the title of the cover art of Insomniac. It can be found in album art work in the picture vault.

Answer: Insomniac Album Artwork

Riddle 3: Part 2

Explanation: This riddle was a combination of St. Jimmy and Homecoming with the lyrics altered with information about the GDA staff member, Jimmy. This would take you to Jimmy on the Staff Page.

Answer: Staff Page

Riddle 4

Explanation: Twenty years refers to the 20th anniversary of Dookie, which was celebrated with a modernized take on the iconic album art work. In the updated version the dookie battle is still raging on and god is no longer in his chair found in the top right corner. Other details that were changed include a twerking Miley Cyrus, an iPad, and a man taking a selfie. Sprinkled throughout the image are references to the bands history.

Answer: Modernized Dookie News Post

Riddle 5

Explanation: Remember the times when you should have read all the directions before starting? This was one of them. The letter seems to be just another set of riddles at first but if you read to the end, there are hints throughout suggesting they have been used before. These riddles are from the first riddles contest and the answer (plus saggy dildos unique answer) to this riddle lies within the the post that displays the answers. The post was made on April 15, 2013, the same date you see at the top right corner of the letter. Hollywood is dead and gone was the answer to the last riddle which leads you to the X-Kid lyrics page (in the album Tré) in the music section.

Answer: X-kid Lyrics

Riddle 6

Explanation: And then you realize this one actually is multiple riddles.

First chest: If you search up ostracized on GDA, you will see that the word found in the song meaning of 86. If you had looked up the definition, you will have found that it means being excluded from a group, which may have brought you to the idea of a song about Green Day being excluded from Gilman Street. Someone called love are lyrics from 80. This ends up being a math problem: Whats the difference between 86 and 80?

Answer: 6

Second chest: Hitchin a Ride, Longview, Geek Stink Breath, Oh Love, Minority, American Idiot, and Know Your Enemy are all the first singles off their respective albums.

Answer: 1 or 1st

Third chest: Did that image look familiar? How about this one?

Answer: 2013

Put them all together and you get a date: June 1st, 2013.

Answer: Emirates Stadium

Riddle 7

Explanation: At this point you may have started collecting some pink/purple letters and maybe realize you missed a few and need to go back to find them. Perhaps you didn't notice them at all (We did tell you to look for anything unusual, so it's not our fault). Once you've gathered all 18 letters you sit there wondering what phrase is going to become of this.

The hint given was the song Demons by Imagine Dragons which is one of the words in the phrase.

Answer: judgement and demons - State of Shock off of Demolicious

Thank you for the lovely e-mails, including this one guy who seemed to be obsessed with semen and nudes. We hope you guys had fun! Until next time...

Love your evil riddlers,

Lone and Bum

Mind.Blown.

SAY WHAT LONE :D

Congrats to you!!! And everyone who solved this!

Ahhh to think I just should have gone through Mike's instagram pics, I was actually in the right track in that one but then I thought no way they're going to put the riddle in a random picture, so I didn't go through them! :pinch:

And I was also stuck on riddle #4 (after finding it while looking for #2), I knew it had to be related to Dookie's 20 anniversary but somehow totally forgot about the modernised artwork! :fool:

Anyway, this contest was awesome, once again! Thanks for the time put into it, Lone & Beachbum, you guys are geniuses! :P These type of contests are seriously the best!

I made it to the instagram pics. Never in a million years would have picked the right one though. I just went to the newest pic of Tre and Sara.

congrats to the winner!!

haha oh my god that phrase haha my first phrase was like :" don't send me a nude" but other letters were missing so I thought I was probably wrong haha

and #2 was pretty hard to find. I saw their last intagram pics and for some reason it said they were taken on 31december 1969 and I was like wtf? so I clicked on this date and there was a whole album of pics taken that day so I thought it was strange and I clicked on all of them and one of these pics was the right one :)

btw I love this kind of contest!! :)

Well done to everyone who solved it and congrats to the winner! :)

I couldn't figure out the connection between the various songs on riddle #6 but had the other two numbers. Other than that I would have solved them all :( I had unscrambled the word "demons" from some of the letters I'd found and correctly guessed State of Shock was implied on a whim so I got to the finish anyway :rolleyes: Would love to see some more of these contests, they're a lot of fun! :D

So glad I couldn't play - pretty sure I wouldn't have made it past the first riddle.

Congrats Gwen and Danny and to all you that played and figured it out.

And of course, a great big THANKS to Bum and Lone for putting this together again. You make an awesome team of riddlers. :)
