The Big Game

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.

That's Entraptment, and it's not legal. No good

Yea your right; it's not realistic. The police wouldn't do that, and if you know that you would never guess that.

Actually, it is legal and has been done by the police before. The place I've heard of it first was Encyclopedia Brown's book of Wacky but True Crimes about 15 years ago.

Entrapment means encouraging or entising you to commit a crime you would not normally do so that they can catch and charge you with the crime.

Catching a criminal, even using false pretenses, is not entrapment.
