Dead ManSituation 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 sitting in a chair by a window, SHOT DEAD IN THE HEAD. All there is, is a wet patch on the floor underneath the window. The window is locked, NOT SMASHED IN ANY WAY, and the door to the room is locked. The room window is DIRECTLY opposite another flat's window. How did the man die?
AnswerThe window was open a little bit, propped open by a block of ice. A sniper from the other window shot the man in the head. The sun setting made the ice block melt, which then made the window click down to lock itself. The ice then made the wet patch inside the flat.
