This is one of our puzzle exercises in which the team will solve a riddle by thinking outside the box.

To get the solution you’ll have to think out of the box.
Tell the team a man stands alone in a room with the door closed. In the room are three switches.

A, B and C.

One of the switches is connected to a lamp in another room.
At this moment all the switches are turned off.
You can turn on and off the switches as much as you want, but you can only walk one time to the other room.
How can you find out which switch is connected to the lamp in the other room?

During the Puzzle Exercises the team can apply variations to the exercise:

  1. When it’s a big team, divide the team into small groups. Each group tries to solve the riddle. When a group think it has the right answer it writes it down on a paper and give it to the trainer. From the groups which has written down the right answers, the group that handed in the paper first wins.
  2. When no one can come up with a solutions you can give them hints. I don’t give examples of hints because than it might be to simple for the Youtube viewers to solve the riddle.
  3. You can let the winner of the riddle come up with a new riddle.

Do you know the answer? Write it as a comment below this Puzzle Exercises video.

Ps. Only read the comments when you really think you know the answer.
