Why?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.
A young girl left her house in tears after a confrontation with her parents. She had with her as many of her belongings as she could quickly throw into a bag. Her friends came and picked her up and they drove out into the middle of nowhere. They had all left behind their comfortable houses, and traded them in for nearly nothing. They had to warm up what little food they had over a fire, and went to bed exhausted. The next day, they each went home to their parents talking about what a wonderful time they had, and asking if they could do it again soon.
HintSome of them had also brought along a room in a bag.
