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.

There was a cabin in a forest, and everybody inside it was dead. There were peanut shells all over the floor. How did they die?


It was an airplane crash.

You confused me because my airplane peanuts always come without shells!

Actually I went on this one plane and they gave them to me with shells. Weird.

This was very good.. the whole 'cabin' thing threw me off... 4/4 for you buddy

Last time I was on a airplane they didnĀ“t have peanuts, but they had some other snack instead. Breadsticks with tomato flavor... They where goood!! =)

Usally, (all most allways) In airplanes they give it out to you WITHOUT the shells! Maybe it just was thattime they gave it to you with shells! If you had said maybe there were peanuts all over the fall I would under stand!

I don't get the part about the peanuts.

Good one! I guessed the plane thing but the peanuts threw me off. Would they really be in the cabin or out among the passengers? I liked it though thanx.

Good one!

Nice! I just thought everybody was severely allergic to peanuts, far-fetched as that is!
Jul 20, 2007

i thought some of the shells got into their eyes and it annoyed them since they cudn't get them out so they jus killed themselves..

Somehow I thought airlines quit giving out peanuts because people who are allergic to them can get sick from the smell of peanuts. Maybe that's only in the US.

Oh, and I thought people had died because they were allergic and had eaten the peanuts! Interesting teaser though; didn't make the cabin connection!

WHAT? This is literally the worst teaser I have ever seen.

Starving killer squirrels? A suicide pact among Peanut Allergy Sufferers Assn. members? The cabin is a saloon that served a deadly batch of moonshine? Since the peanuts had shells I would never have thought of a plane cabin.
