Well in this riddle there's a word or phrase as an answer, its from a game, I cannot solve it so far(over a week trying). The riddle is the following:

"Try not to move, 3 knocks and you're outside."

Context: This is a game where you get a riddle and you need to answer a word or a sentence in order to pass to the next level, there are no clues. Example of last riddle was : “The first in the series, since Daniel became a legend” and the answer was “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone”.There is no credit needed, it is a family game...

  • $\begingroup$ Did you hear or read this? The reason I ask: If you heard it, then maybe it was actually "knocks" rather than "Knocks" or "you're" rather than "your". That could change the riddle substantially. $\endgroup$ – msh210 Aug 16 '20 at 12:11
  • $\begingroup$ @msh210 hey, it was written “knocks” and “your’e” I just had a typo. Thanks $\endgroup$ – user2323232 Aug 16 '20 at 12:13

    $\begingroup$ @AnthonyIngram-Westover this is a textual game, you need to write a word or sentence which is the answer... $\endgroup$ – user2323232 Aug 16 '20 at 13:10

    $\begingroup$ Voting to reopen. Whether or not this is actually answerable or a good puzzle, the "attribution" close reason certainly doesn't apply any more. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Aug 16 '20 at 16:21

    $\begingroup$ Worth noting that 3 knocks is commonly an omen of death in Irish and Scottish culture... $\endgroup$ – Voldemort's Wrath Aug 16 '20 at 16:31

The answer is

Race

Reasoning:

The "do not move" line is common practice at the start of most races, be them horse, car, or track. All the contestants line up at the beginning and wait for the signal. In horse and car races (not sure if this is common practice for track) three sounds ("knocks") are used to signal "on your mark", "get set", and "go".

Not that I know this is relevant but...

It is the name of a different fantasy book by an English author: https://www.bookdepository.com/Wizards-Once-Knock-Three-Times-Cressida-Cowell/9781444941456
