Claw MachineSituation 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.
I'm playing on a claw machine at the seaside, trying to win a stuffed toy. On one particular shot, I accidentally completely miss the toy I'm after and grab hold of one underneath it. The claw lifts that toy about two feet, and then blatantly drops it. Far from being annoyed at this, I'm actually delighted.
HintI WAS slightly ticked off for a second that I completely missed, but through sheer dumb luck it ended up working out well for me.
Also, this did actually happen to me once, so the solution isn't anything outlandish.
AnswerThe toy I wanted was leaning right over the prize chute. When I accidentally lifted up the toy underneath it, it tipped the one I was after into the hole.
