Winter VacationSituation 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.
A man and his wife were going to Mt. Everest for a winter vacation. While on this trip the man's wife was murdered. The police are convinced that it wasn't a murder. One day a man came to the police and told them who did it, and that he had evidence. Who found out? How? And who killed the woman?
HintThink of the tickets. Who purchased them?
AnswerHer husband did it! The person who found out was the ticket collector. He knew she had been murdered because her ticket was a one way ticket. Her husband had a round trip ticket. Therefore he knew she would not be returning and wanted to save money on her ticket. So he bought her a one way ticket because he planned to murder her.
