    What are situation puzzles?

    Situation puzzles are often referred to as lateral thinking puzzles or yes/no puzzles.
    Situation puzzles are usually played in a group, with one person hosting the puzzle and the others asking questions which can only be answered with a yes or no answer. Depending upon the settings and level of difficulty, other answers, hints or simple explanations of why the answer is yes or no, may be considered acceptable. The puzzle is solved when one of the players is able to recite the narrative the host had in mind, in particular explaining whatever aspect of the initial scenario was puzzling.

    These puzzles are inexact and many puzzle statements have more than one possible fitting answer.

    The main idea behind this game is to find out what others think. A person has a situation in mind. Others ask him questions about that situation.
    He can answer only with YES, NO, IRRELEVANT. After some questions the asking persons found the solution. During the solving process a hint may be also provided, but it will costs more points than a ususal question.
