## Contents

## Equipment

You don't need any equipment for this riddle.

## Procedure

The trainer - or somebody else who knows the correct solution - ask several questions:

- He raises his right hand, and presents any number of fingers (zero to five). [let's call this number A]
- Additionally, he claims: "if this is [any number], ..." [this number is B]
- Then, he shows another number of fingers [number C]
- And says "... then this is [number D]".

Usually, he for all four numbers, values between zero and five are valid (unless you got more fingers :-) )

All the participants have to guess, what the correct number D is (depending on A, B, and C). So, usually, after a few initial rounds, the trainer does not tell the number D, but instead asks "what would then be that?".

## Trivia

- The game is used in the computer adventure
*Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge*.
