HousesSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
Eight children spent a fun-filled 2 hours on a winter's day running back and forth between two houses, throwing rocks at the houses. Their parents watched them without trying to stop them at all, even though there was ice where they were running. In fact, the parents cheered the good throws. Why?
AnswerThe children were curling.
The game of curling is a lot of fun, and is played by people of all ages.
In curling, 2 four-player teams "throw" curling stones ("rocks") at targets called "houses" at either end of an ice sheet. Players run alongside the rocks, sweeping the ice surface to make the rocks go straighter and faster.
