He asks you some questions. What are the correct answers, and what is the reward for getting them correct?

(I asked and self-answered this to keep all of the answers to the questions in one place, like this question from Candy Box 1. (we already have questions for specific ones, like this, this, and this.)) –  Doorknob Oct 24 '13 at 21:55

Since this caused the original versions of the questions to be closed as dupes, which I don't feel very comfortable with, I raised a meta question about it here –  Sterno Oct 25 '13 at 0:48

I'm not sure why this post was reopened, since we decided on meta it should be closed. –  BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Oct 30 '13 at 17:55
    
To be fair, we didn't clearly decide that on meta. We just decided that the others shouldn't have been closed as dupes. My answer didn't really have a suggestion for what to do with this question, since I have no idea. That's also why I've refrained from voting on it. –  Sterno Nov 3 '13 at 17:36

The game is Tic-Tac-Toe. We play on a 3 by 3 game board. You will use the X sign while I will use the O sign. We place our signs alternatively, and the goal is to get three signs in a row. I'll let you go first!

Correct answer (solution): first go in the middle square, then any corner, then get three in a row by going outside of the grid

You can just place all 3 outside of the grid if you want. –  Reafexus Oct 24 '13 at 22:28

"floats" is a correct answer to the hat question too. –  Arperum Oct 24 '13 at 22:40

simply "wet" works for the hat question too. –  3ventic Oct 25 '13 at 7:10
    
Any similar solution involving any of the four corners on the tic-tac-toe seems to work. I did upper left corner. –  Yamikuronue Oct 25 '13 at 15:33

If you really want every possible correct answer to a riddle, a quick look at the JavaScript reveals them. There are quite a few alternates. –  Sterno Oct 25 '13 at 16:44

For the tic-tac-toe, think about having an extra 3 boxes at the top of the box and just click on those. You can use any space right next to the box and it will count.
