Riddle Games – What Happened? #42On August 14, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
During the exercise the team will sit in a circle. The trainer comes up with a situation of which the participants will guess what happened. It can be a fun situation, but to excite the participants the best is to give them a thrilling situation. This way it seems like a thriller in which the participants are detectives that have to solve the crime and figure out what happened. You come up with the situation. In the forest on the foot of a mountain lies a dead man with spread around him bags with sand in it. What happened? The participants start, clockwise, to ask closed questions which you can only answer with yes or no. The one that first guessed what has happened wins the game and can come up with another situation. The first participant asks: Has the man been murdered? The trainer answers with a simple YES of NO. In this case: NO. Did the man die of age? NO Did the man walked to this spot? NO Did he come here through the forest? NO Did he drop down from the sky? YES Did he fell of the mountain? NO From an airplane? NO From the universe? NO From a hot air balloon? YES Did the bags with sand caused his death? NO Did the bags of sand has something to do with the man’s death? YES Were there more people in the hot air balloon? YES Did someone pushed the man? NO Did he jump voluntarily? YES Was is family also in the hot air balloon? YES Did he want to commit suicide? NO Is his family still alive? YES Does the mountain has something to do with it? YES If he not had jumped, would his family still be alive? NO So he jumped to save his family? YES Would the balloon have crashed into the mountain if he not had jumped? YES I know it! One participant says. The man was in a hot air balloon with his family flying towards a mountain. After throwing all the bags of sand out of the balloon to gain height the hot air balloon still was too heavy. The man jumped so the hot air balloon would fly over the mountain. This way he saved his wife and children. The participant was right and now it’s his turn to come up with the next situation of which the rest of the team has to guess what happened. In this case he comes up with the next situation: Romeo and Julia are lying in a puddle of water dead on the ground between pieces of glass. The window is open and the wind howls. What happened?
