Each king selects a throne a time at random each day and selects a throne at random every day.The wizard visits both thrones at the same time once a day (a random time each day). Assume that he always gets to visit each throne (if a throne is occupied when he visits, then he waits until the king finishes his business, then nips in and cures it before the next king sits).One King to a throne, if both thrones are occupied, then the king will have to wait his turn.The thrones could be almost any colour, but I believe one colour is much more common than any other. I will reveal all tomorrow if no-one has guessed the real motivation behind this brain teaser.One more tweak to the problem - What about if after two days of being cursed, the king turns into a frog and immediately hops out of the palace. How long now until the palace is empty (apart from the wizard)?
