Spelling and case

All correct answers must be spelled correctly. If there is a misspelled answer or typo in your entry, this will be deemed incorrect.

The correct spelling of an answer in a RiddleVerse riddle contest will be the preferred spelling of the word/s in Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. This is the also the standard used by almost all spell checking programs for American English.

Correct answers must be drawn from the Riddle’s context regarding whether they are singular or plural. This is considered an inherent aspect of the riddle solving skill of a contestant.

Answers are not case sensitive and will not be judged as such. Eg. you could answer: riddle, RIDDLE, Riddle, all would be deemed correct.
