    Well 3 would be right since you could feel the gloves to make sure you get one for each hand. But since you are probably assuming you can't, then the answer would be 13. The first 6 could be all left handed browns, the next 6 all left handed blacks, and 1 for a right hand of either pair (or vice versa).

    actually you have to take out 13 gloves. the first six you draw out could all be left black gloves, then next 6 you draw out could be all right brown gloves but when you draw the 13th you have to get a match to one of the first 12 you took out.

    Yeah I accidentally put 7 at first because I thought it was 3 of each color, but then I edited it when I saw it was 6. Either way the logic is the same... however if you have the ability to feel, you would only require 3.

    bianchi wins the GRY riddle.
    If you didn't look that one up, it's a famous riddle that people puzzled over for a months, so feel special.
