Heís born as part of a set of triplets, heís the oldest, but not ready to get a bris right away. In the meantime the other 2 siblings get a bris and die. Then the oldest triplet becomes healthy and is patur.

2. The oldest son was born Ben hashmashot Friday night, with a delayed bris until Sunday, while the others were born on Shabbos. Hence the other siblings had an earlier bris.
Nicely done!

You got it!

if the 2 siblings before him died because of the bris Milah, it creates chazaka for that family to die by bris and therefore exempts the rest of the brothers in that family from needing to do bris

There's another riddle that I'm sure they share in the triplets groups. Old and easy, but I'll share it anyways.

How is it possible that triplets, all who are healthy, have their bris milah on three separate days.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

Yup.

Another, also an easy classic:

How is it that there are two boys, and the younger one has his bar mitzva weeks before the older one?

Leap year.

Just fooling around. Yes, leap year is the answer. When the older one was born at the end of Adar 1 and the second one was born at the beginning of Adar 2.

The year of the bar mitzva was a regular year, so the younger one was bar mitzva first.

See Shvus Yaakov Chelek 1 siman 9.

Imagine you are born at the end of Adar I - say on the 21st. You want to lein megila for your bar mitzvah, which makes logical sense, because you were born before purim - except you can't, because your bar mitzvah year is in a non-leap year.

If we're on to jewish riddles, here's are a couple of "Gabbai" Riddles for you:

There are a lot of times we lein for a week (or more) days in a row - Succos, Pesach, Chanukah. If Rosh Chodesh is Tuesday and Wednesday, we lein 4 days in a row - in what situation would we lain more than 4, but less than 7 days in row?

In how many situations do we take out 3 sifrei torah on shabbos morning, and what is the maximum number of times that it can happen in a given calendar year?

I once met a man who redeemed his firstborn son twice! How is that possible?
