Shadow and His PlaneSituation 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.
Shadow was preparing to get on a plane and fly to Germany to solve an important case. Suddenly, his assistant rushed up to him, and told Shadow he had had a dream last night that Shadow's plane would crash and begged him not to go.
