    How about:

    Kyx sends the box with money over to Flyx, locked with his padlock.
    Flyx locks the box with their own padlock (keeping the key) and sends it back over.
    Kyx unlocks his padlock and sends the box back to Flyx.
    Flyx unlocks his padlock, opens the box and gets the money.

    Room 4 - The coin boxes

    There are three boxes, each with a partition. Each part of the box can be opened without allowing you to see the other side.

    In each side there is a coin. One box has 2 gold coins, one has two silver coins, and the other has a gold and a silver coin.

    If you open one box to find a gold coin, what is the probability that the other part of the box also has a gold coin?

    If you see a gold coin then the boxes left are:

    GG
    GS

    The probability of the other part of the box having a gold coin is 50%. (equal chance of G and S)

    Ah right, I think it would be, didn't consider which side the gold coin was on.

    There are three Gold coins, let's call them Dave, Bob, and Sally. Sally is in the box with the silver coin, and Bob and Dave are in the same box. If the coin you see is gold, there is a 1/3 chance it is Sally. Therefore, there is a 1/3 chance the other coin in the box is silver. The chance og picking Dave or Bob is 2/3, so there is a 2/3 chance that the other coin is gold.
