The Guide

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 man was hiking in the hills for the first time and, for safety, he brings along two guides. At the beginning of the hike, the first guide said, "Keep all personal items close, stay behind me, and above all else, keep your balance around the steep dropoffs!" The second guide had never been on such a long hike and, despite the warnings, tumbled off one of the high cliffs and rolled into a valley. The second guide's spine was broken in the fall. The man and the first guide watched the fall, shrugged, and moved on. Why did they offer no help or concern?
