My (fictional) riddle-loving friend comes up to me and says, "Hey, bro, I gave you a present. "

"Um, is this a puzzle?", you ask.

"Yes.... it's going to be a riddle", he says. You groan. It's going to be another of his crazy riddles.

He gives you a piece of paper which says:

I can mote.
But only rf I have a daiver.
Or peiple can ride ne.

People can build things out of the middle of me.
They can look very realistic.
Or they can be something out of science fiction!

The last part is a group of things.

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ I would like to strongly discourage this style of attack on a puzzle. Either solve it or don't solve it; please don't seek out help from the puzzle's creator one teeny-tiny bit at a time. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ (Also, it's pretty rude to do this and then delete all your comments so that no one else gets to benefit from your pestering of the puzzle's creator.) $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I think it is

A train LEGO set

as follows:

Mote=move so we take so wrong letter and we get “t”;
Rf=if we get r;
daiver =driver we get a;
peiple=people we get I;
ne=me we get n



“LEGO” could be made into different shapes.

“Set” is a group of things.

Maybe the final answer is

“A Train LEGO set”

    $\begingroup$ That's clearly the correct interpretation of the first block. But I think the rest indicates that we need two other elements to follow that word. One thing that people can build things out of. One word that means a group of things. Also, please put spoiler markup on your answers. (I'll edit it in in this case.) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Also just so you know, this whole riddle is divided into three separate riddles whose answers form a phrase. $\endgroup$ Dec 11, 2020 at 17:33
  • $\begingroup$ You are right! Even though it took you some time to get the correct answer, you are worthy of a +25. $\endgroup$ Dec 11, 2020 at 17:52
