I love myself a good riddle. Who doesn’t? Did you know there are two kinds of riddles? enigmas and conundrums.
An enigma is a problem in which the solution is expressed metaphorically. You have to carefully think about the riddle to come up with the solution.
A conundrum is a question that opens either the question or the answer.
A riddle, doesn’t need to be classified as either a conundrum or an enigma. As long as it is difficult to figure out and has an answer or a meaning to it, it can be classified as a riddle.
Did you know that Shakespeare was famous for his works, which had a lot of riddles in them. For example, in Romeo and Juliet, Romeo proclaimed his love in a riddle for the audience to interpret.

They would pose a question to get people thinking of the answer. It’s a much different approach than what we use them for today which is mostly entertainment.
