A Man and His SeasSituation 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 was put in a strange place, and got lost. The only things he could see were many seas and volcanoes. After a few hours, he found himself with other people, going home. Where was he, and why?
AnswerThe man was an astronaut on the moon. The seas related to maria, the dark parts on the moon. The biggest parts of maria are know as seas (the Sea of Serenity, the Sea of Tranquility, and a few others). Photographs have proven that there are volcanoes on the moon. He was exploring the moon, and then he went back to the shuttle with the other astronauts, and went back to Earth (home).
