Each puzzle in this section includes a play on words, but those in the second half (starting with Puzzle 3-31) are best suited for a group. Each of the group puzzles contains a homophone — signaled by one word within the question followed by its homophone in parentheses. These puzzles are worded so that when the host reads each one out loud, the listeners will hopefully interpret the problem using the meaning of the homophone in parentheses. In actuality, the correct solution is found when using the homophone outside the parentheses.
