Don't Open The Door

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 little girl was warned by her parents never to open the cellar door. If she did, she would see things that they did not want her to see. One day, while her parents were out, they accidentally left the cellar door unlocked. The girl opened the cellar door. What did she see?



Answer

When the girl opened the cellar door she saw the living room and a beautiful garden through its windows. She had never seen these before because her parents had kept her in the cellar all her life.

That's messed up. It's like one of those true movies where you would like to choke the parents out. Although sometimes I would like to lock my children up.

lol that's not very nice

but... nice teaser grilllllledcheeeeesee

it reminds me of that movie where that guy was in a massive studio all his life without knowing it and somehow had to get his way out...

Interesting teaser! A bit spooky though. No matter how mad my kids made me I would neveer lock them in the cellar! The cat though...! And what a reversal to realize she was in the cellar not outside! Quite ingenious!

I knew it was going to be about a nice place. I just didn't realize she was in the cellar! Good one!

Well, I thought it was about opening to go IN the cellar... and I don't understand how anyone could logically get that but meh, good one.

I suppose it was clever as teasers go, but I don't like that it referred to child abuse.

I agree with everyone else. Your teaser was cleverly written but I don't like the topic.

I guess you mean't they told her not to open the door, because there was things that "they did not want her to see". I am sure the outside world is something she is mean't to see.

Great teaser! I hope that nobody does that...

well tintiniscool, things like this do happen, and sadly it isn't uncommon either. I agree with everyone as well. I don't think it is nice to entertain my brain with child abuse stories. There's enough of that going on in the media. Interesting point though, to see things from other perspectives

Quite sad though i odn't think it should be in the situation section but the mystery section who agrees?

I've got 1 question....


Was she born in the cellar?
soonitwillendAus*
Nov 10, 2007

I was way wrong..
I thought they were hiding her gifts, like for a birthday or christmas, down there.
Fire_Shell96*us*

Good teaser but a little ambiguous

Clever! I should have gotten it after the hint.

well, this just makes me realize that things like this actually do happen... anyone who would do that to a child is a creep!

nice teaser, i cant beleive people didnt like it. i mean, the whole point of these things is to use logic, i guess they forgot to use it and just looked at the story. oh well, i liked it!

I agree with kiddo but it was sad!
perrygfAil*
Feb 18, 2009

I'm the opposite. I thought it was a cool topic, but there were too many other answers. Why couldn't it be a good, old fashioned monster, or secret torture chamber? I didn't read the hint, and thought it might be Christmas presents! Cute idea, though.

This is extremely clever, but also extremely disturbing. I'm not sure whether to high-five the creator or punch them in the face.

Did I miss something here that made this teaser have ANY sense? There are so many answers to this!

OK, I have to admit, I did get it right on the first try, but she might as well seen a clown doing jumping jacks

The teaser has no logic.
