How SoundRiddle works

How does SoundRiddle work?

The Game

SoundRiddle is a social game for 1 – 6 players which focusses on guessing sounds. Playing the game is easy; You hear a short audio fragment, see the amount of letters from the correct answer and get the game category to start with. The fewer hints you need to solve the puzzle, the more points you win and the higher you rise in the ranking. 

Basic rules
Every SoundRiddle is worth 100 points. You can have 3 guesses to guess the answer.  If you don’t know the answer, you can buy hints with the 100 points you can win. Depending on the type of hint you buy you can increase the audiofragment, unlock a letter of the answer, or unlock a piece of the picture provided. When in doubt, you can always ask your friends for advice on social media by sharing your SoundRiddle with them.

Your own SoundRiddle
You can create your own unique SoundRiddle using the app! Record the sound, take a picture which displays a hint, enter the answer and select a category in which your SoundRiddle belongs. You can edit your SoundRiddle entirely to your satisfaction before inviting your friends to solve it. 

Use your own created SoundRiddles as a fun and interactive way to share everyday and special events with your friends. If you think you have created a really great SoundRiddle, submit it to the SoundRiddle database so every SoundRiddle player can solve your SoundRiddle! 

If you consider the information above to be common knowledge and think your SoundRiddles are the most fun and unique? Find out here how your SoundRiddle can be chosen to be SoundRiddle of the week!
