Riddle: Dead on the field lie ten soldiers in white, felled by three eyes, black as night. What happened?
The first time you read the riddle, you may have a mental picture of a battlefield. However, in reality it has nothing to do with it. The 10 soldiers mentioned in the riddle are the 10 pins featured in the bowling game.
Bowling is one of the oldest games. It is a game in which you try to drop all 10 pins lined up in a triangle shape with the help of a ball. There are 3 holes on the balls to hold the bowling balls. These holes are the eyes mentioned in the riddle. The answer of this riddle is that a strike was thrown in 10 pin bowling.
Answer: A strike was thrown in 10 pin bowling.
