Okay. I'll go right ahead. Once again, no googling the answer.

One day in a prison, the Warden was feeling particularly generous towards three inmates. He decided that he would give them a puzzle, and whoever solved it first would be set free with a guaranteed job and $10000. He led them all into a room with three chairs lined up in a row, one in front of another, all facing a wall. On a table in the room, there were five hats: three black and two red. He had them sit in the chairs, and put a black hat from the table on each of their heads. He told them that whoever can stand up and say what hat he's wearing in less than two minutes would be set free. After about a minute, one man stood up and said that he was wearing a black hat.  Who was it, and how did he figure out?

Clarifications:
1. They are not allowed to turn around and look at the other people's hats.
2. The hats are designed so that they could not see what color it is.
3. They saw the hats when they walked in, so they know how many hats there are of each color.

Where the hats all the same except for color?

And could the men talk to each other?

Did the man guess, or did he know?

Is it the man in back? He would have seen the hats before he sat down and could see the others put their hats on.

He knew, and let's say that they were blindfolded while the hats were being put on.

They ALL have black hats on?    I've heard this puzzle told differently before.

Yep. But it's similar reasoning to those other variations.

Nope! You're not allowed to put in riddles unless you solve the previous one.

Was the man black?

I'm not even going to bother answering that question.

HINT: You guys are looking for obvious answers and loopholes. Because this is a logic puzzle, the solution requires thinking the question through logically until you find the answer, and the actual answer uses no loopholes.

Grrrrr. I know how to solve the similar puzzle, but every time I try to solve this one, it has a small problem and doesn't work  :05:
