Growing up on shows like Murder, She Wrote; Unexplained Mysteries; and the books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle instilled a great love for solving mysteries in me from a very young age.

For example, why are there mysterious, enormous arrows all over America, or why do some people put windows in the floors of their homes?

If you’re a mystery lover, too, check out these three mysterious riddles to see if you’re quick and sly enough to become a sleuth.

Below we present three mysteries with some clues. Everything you need to solve the mystery is right there under the photo. To find the answers, just scroll to to the bottom of this page. Don’t scroll through until you’ve read all three though — you don’t want to spoil the game for yourself.

Once you’re done, let us know how you did.

You might also want to challenge a friend to see who can get more, so please SHARE with a friend who also might be interested in these mysteries.
