Sleep Walker?Situation 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.
After a nice meal of wine and cheese Rimple Stultzkin settled down against a tree for a nap. When he awoke he was in a completely different country! How could this be?
HintEveryone around him seemed to be celebrating something.
AnswerRimple was a resident of Alsace-Lorraine, known for wines, beer and quiche, which was officially ceded to France at the end of World War II after it had been occupied by Germany. Lucky for Rimple that he was too old to be drafted by the German Army! The area has passed back and forth between Germany and France five times as a result of various wars since it was first ceded to France in 1648.
So, Rimple fell asleep in Germany and woke up in France!
