50 Rätsel mit Ausflugstipps


Schwarzwald follows Bodensee - The game mechanism known from black stories - featuring seemingly inexplicable statements or puzzles, which must solved by asking questions - is expanded by regional context. You can only ask questions answerable with yes or now by the so-called know-it-all game master; he can also ask for a new question or re-wording of a question in case of irrelevant questions or questions that cannot be answered. The game master can also give tips when questions are totally off track. This game contains puzzles pertaining to the Bodensee region and provides - together with the solution - also information and daytrip suggestions for the regions and the exact location for the respective puzzle.

An example: Angeborener Geschäftssinn sei als Beispiel genannt: Emil Scheibel from the little town of Kappelrodeck, well-known for its numerous vineyards and fruit orchards paid homage to his birth date all his live by being a successful business man ... why? The solution is of course not given here, but you can find it at Grüner Winkel 32, 77876 Kappelrodeck. Or A visit to the Talbach: In the past, people regularly paid a visit to Fahrgasse next to Talbach, which runs right through the old town of Tiengen, and brought poppy seed, walnuts or beechnuts. Why?

The 50 puzzles in Schwarzwald are a well-researched and attractive collection of puzzling facts, offering surprising and unexpected solutions which do really make you curious to go and see the place for yourself; and is also a nice gift for all the people living in the region who will be surprised about the historical titbits to be found out of their own front door.
