Wise Wizard (Posted on 2007-12-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
An evil king locked a wizard in a dungeon with nothing but a chair and a shovel. There is a window in the room, but the wizard can't reach it using the chair. The dungeon is surrounded by a cement parking lot that stretches 100 feet in every direction.

The wizard uses the shovel to dig a 50 feet long tunnel and still manages to escape.

Why did the evil king give the wizard a shovel?  Was he a benevolent evil king?  Is Dr. Evil one of his relatives?

What does the king use the parking lot for?

If the parking lot stretches in every direction, where is the moat?

I see a problem if the dungeon is only 6 ft by 6 ft.  Tough to find a place for 50 feet worth of dirt without it falling back into the hole or blocking the door.

The wizard digs a hole in front of the door, and when the guard comes to check on him, the wizard stands on the chair and used the shovel to hit the guard on the head.  Then he drops the guard into the hole, and walks out the door.
