Can you solve the wizard standoff riddle?

I keep getting excited about reading a new logic puzzle only to find out that it’s a goddamn video.

Yeah, I read the text provided and thought, “There isn’t enough here for me to form any kind of answer. Can’t I just make up whatever I want?”

Precisely what I was thinking. Let the other assholes duke it out until one loses, then hike back and banish the one left standing. If they call rules on you, start sending judges and spectators to the mountain until they stop giving you a hard time.

What a disappointment. I saw a video a few years back, in which the Peeps enacted the battle between the Red Wizard and the Blue Wizard, to the strains of The Final Countdown. The word “epic” has been overused, but…

Oh! The winning solution is obvious! Choose the third wand and cast it upon yourself. 100% guaranteed win!

I didn’t think that missing was an option.

It’s still the correct wand to choose even without the “miss on purpose” option. Your odds of winning are just much worse no matter what wand you get.

That sounds right. I have no frickin’ idea WTF I’m talking about, but… nonetheless…

Yeah, if it’s a genuine puzzle, lay out all the rules!

Otherwise, it’s a “lateral thinking” puzzle and just about anything goes!

Solution involves less running away than I expected.

Sadly, many riddles are ruined if you deliberately misinterpret them as badly as possible, like a malevolent genie.

This riddle is easy: Put the wand away, because real wizards don’t need wands, and cast Meteo for 9999 damage.

My bard seduces both wizards. At the same time.
