EarlySituation 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 lady is at home. She is expecting her husband back from a work trip that night, for dinner. She sets the table for them. An hour later her husband still is not home for dinner, but she isn't worried.
HintDuring that hour she was not contacted from her husband at all.
AnswerShe wasn't expecting her husband for another two hours. She just preferred to set the table early, so that everything would be ready when her husband returned.
