Puzzle Giveaway 3

Our third giveaway is over. Congratulations to Steven W. who won a whole pack of socks which he plans to wear in his future Escape Room adventures.


Hey, puzzlers, our friends at Soxy are offering their comfy socks in a new puzzle pattern and want to share 5 pairs with you. Solve the puzzle below, post the answer on our Facebook wall, and you can be the lucky winner of a whole set of fun socks. Click the banner below to check Soxy’s other cool items.


Last week, I got from Soxy 1 pair of brown socks, 3 pairs of brown shoes, 2 pairs of black socks, 2 pairs of black shoes, and put them all in a wooden chest. How many times should I pick a random item from the chest, so that I end up with all-matching shoes and socks to wear on Comic-Con?

ANSWER ON FACEBOOK

You need to pick at least 14 items from the chest. If you pick 13 items, you can end up with 1 brown sock, 3 left brown shoes, 3 right brown shoes, 4 black socks, and 2 left black shoes.
