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 man is found shot dead in the street surrounded by 56 bicycles. Why was the man shot and what is the significance of the bicycles?


Answer

The man was playing poker with someone else. As a poker deck has only 52 cards, he was soon found to be cheating by holding 4 extra cards. The other man shot him in the street as he rushed to leave. The bicycles are the brand of cards he was using.
