So here is the situation. You are walking along the street and suddenly two men jump out of a van. They blindfold you and bundle you into their vehicle. You are driven for miles before being taken into a house and your blindfold removed. You find yourself sitting in a dark, damp, room. There is a small table in front of you containing 11 matches and a small ball of paper.
A hungry looking lion is sitting opposite you, and out of the corner of your eye you can see four hats (two red, two blue) and a candle lying on the ground.
The lion leans forward and arranges the matchsticks and paper ball into the following dog-like shape.
He then turns around, takes a piece of chalk from behind his ear and writes on the wall….
CAN YOU MAKE THE DOG LOOK IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION BY MOVING JUST TWO OF THE MATCHSTICKS AND THE PAPER BALL? IF NOT, I WILL EAT YOU…..OH, AND ONE THING….THE DOG’S TAIL MUST REMAIN POINTING UP.
Can you escape with your life? As ever, feel free to say if you think you have solved it, and how long it took, but no answers. Solution on Monday. Have fun.
Update: OK, so it turns out that there are two answers! Can you get both of them?
