The Friendly Stranger

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.

The man, desperate on escaping from his pursuers, agreed to let a friendly stranger help him, but later the stranger betrayed the man and killed him.

I was surprised that looked tough and then I had this moment of zen knowledge. Stupid gingerbread man. I'm either really smart or I need to be reading fewer picture books.

this was great
you completely stumped me, but as soon as i saw it, i got it.

the story of the gingerbread man runs vaguely thus:

the gingerbread man was running away from people (probably 'coz they wanted to eat him) he ran and ran shouting "run run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, i'm the gingerbread man". only then he got to a river, and was unable to cross it. a sly fox saw him and offered to give him a ride across, the gingebread man agreed and sat on the foxes back as he swam across, as he got a bit deeper the fox told the gingerbread man to sit on his head as the water was getting too deep, the gingerbread man does so. further on he tells the gingerbread man to sit on his nose, and the gingerbread man does so. when this occurs the fox tosses back his head, throws the gingerbread man in the air, and gobbles him up.

roughly anyway

I've never heard the gingerbread man story except the run, run part, so the whole thing didn't really make sense. I didn't realy get the whole answer either.

"Soon, more people chased the man."

I got it right there. Don't get me wrong, still a GREAT teaser... I just happen to love the tale of the gingerbread man, so I got it very quickly.
