Here is one of my favourite puzzles. Fairly easy, but elegant.
So what we have:
5 caps: 3 white and two black.
Each wizard gets a cap, they all can see other wizards caps, but not their own.
The challenge was for each of them to figure out his color.
So the caps are put on, wizards look at each other... Nothing is said, but after a while one of them tells his color.
How did he do it?
