DescriptionBased on the book of the same name by Chinese author 崔慧明 (Cui Huiming) and 何楠 (He Nan), this app lets you guess traditional Chinese lantern riddles based on 15 different categories.
NOTE: The riddles and their answers are all in Chinese. Lantern riddles are usually based on both the features and meaning of a Chinese character, so they wouldn't work if you translated them to English (this note was added in response to Thomas's review, sorry to anyone else that thought they would be in English).
Here is the introduction of the original book:
