Merlin's FoeSituation 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.
Merlin the Royal Magician was walking down the path to Camelot's market when his archenemy, his twin brother Orlando, ambushes him with ten thieves. Orlando gave Merlin a chance to live and said, "If you can guess my one fear, then you will live." Merlin then ran into the market and Orlando ran away. Why?
HintIt has to do with the market itself and not anything Merlin did but lead them there.
AnswerOrlando had agoraphobia. He was afraid of crowded places like the Camelot market.
