A Day at the Movie StoreSituation 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.
Dontrelle and his mom walk into a movie store. Dontrelle spots a "Quarter toss" where the goal is to land a quarter on very small platform. If it lands and stays there, Dontrelle and his mom get free movie rentals for a year. The trick is that the platform is in a glass of water. The only rules are that the quarter has to land on, and stay on, the platform, and your hand can't get wet. (So he can't just lay it on there.)
Well, Dontrelle proved he could do it and got free movies for a year.
How did Dontrelle do it?
AnswerDontrelle grabbed the Quarter toss, walked outside, poured the water out of the glass, took it back inside and laid the quarter on the platform.
Dontrelle and his mom will now be enjoying free movie rentals for the rest of the year.
