13 Riddles That Can Unleash the Secret Agent in You

The oldest riddle is assumed to have originated around 470 BCE in Greek mythology and is known as “The Riddle of the Sphinx.” Many other riddles followed later, proving that challenging the mind isn’t anything new and people always loved this type of exercise. And we can’t really blame people for wanting to challenge their brains and feel smart.
