The Prisoner’s Hat Riddle

Who doesn’t want to solve a problem involving homicidal aliens?  Good luck with this one…

BADGING:  Watch the video above.  Pause the video when it says to pause the video.  Write a three sentence (at least) paragraph hypothesis on how you would solve the riddle presented by the (possibly) bloodthirsty aliens.  How can you be sure your group solves the riddle when you can only say the words “black” or “white”?  Then resume the video and watch the solution.  Write a second paragraph explaining the solution, and compare it to your hypothesis.  Would your suggested strategy work as well as the solution presented in the video?
