A Day at the Movie Store

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.

Dontrelle and his mom walk into a movie store. Dontrelle spots a "Quarter toss" where the goal is to land a quarter on very small platform. If it lands and stays there, Dontrelle and his mom get free movie rentals for a year. The trick is that the platform is in a glass of water. The only rules are that the quarter has to land on, and stay on, the platform, and your hand can't get wet. (So he can't just lay it on there.)

Well, Dontrelle proved he could do it and got free movies for a year.

How did Dontrelle do it?

Sneaky little boy. I figured he'd just drink the water.

Empy and I were on the same wavelength; at first I thought of siphoning with a drinking straw. Then the thought made me feel oogy (I mean, how long has this water been there, ya know?) and I had to pause.

Hey dontrelle, have you ever done that? What did the store's manager say?

Very clever although I didn't get it.

I thought he would have just taken something that a quarter could fit through to guide it onto the platform. Extremely clever!

Did he just pour the water on the floor? I'd be pretty pissed if I were the manager.

Really? He removed something from the store, vandalized it, and was rewarded with free movies? Methinks not.
