War Stories

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.

Tom, Dick and Harry are swapping war stories. Tom told one about his uncle Fred who had lost his arm during the war. "Uncle Fred met a General who was so shocked that Fred had lost his arm during the war, and had not yet received a medal that he removed one of his own medals and pinned it on Fred's uniform. He then mentioned that had Fred lost both arms, he would have received a commission. Hearing this, Fred withdrew his sword and with one swift stroke he cut off his arm. Shortly after he was appointed Minister of Armaments." Harry laughed and said to Tom, "You are obviously lying." How was Harry so sure?
