Ingenuity and a klutzy skill enabled their escape.

Yup, Balin's puzzle statement with a slight alteration. And posts on my LatVentures would be HIGHLY APPRECIATED! Soli is doing her best, but the more the merrier!

Is it relevant just how many of "them" there are? How many objects there are?

Is this at all related to the classic "juggle the balls to get over the bridge" lateral puzzle?

Is it relevant just how many of "them" there are? Not particularly, there's three. How many objects there are? Again, not really, there's three objects as well.

were the objects balls? clubs? hoops? were they things which are traditionally used in juggling?

did they juggle a some sort of performance? was the juggling used as a distraction?

did they all juggle at the same time? were they passing the objects from one to another? or each juggling on their own?

Were they distracting the guards? Is it relevant just what they were juggling?

Was one juggling? Two? All three? If one or two, was/were the other(s) doing something else germane to the escape?

Were they distracting the guards? FA, but yes, the juggling was to distract the guards. Is it relevant just what they were juggling? Not particularly, it was just three rocks.

Was one juggling? Just one! FA cleared. Two? All three? If one or two, were the others doing something else germane to the escape? Yes.

Was the juggler distracting the guards so the others could do something behind their backs? Dig? Dispose of dirt? Steal tools or equipment? Actually escape?

Slight BLOOPER ALERT: To say that what the other two were doing was 'preparing for escape' may be slightly misleading. Apologies.

Did the knockers-out escape during the juggling? Or did all 3 escape at once? Did they raise the alarm about the unconscious guard, causing the guards to run over there while they all slipped out the other way?

No questions in almost two weeks, so I guess I'll just give you guys the
************SPOILER**********

Ingenuity and a klutzy skill enabled their escape.
'They' are 3 HAM POWs. One of them juggles three rocks, distracting the four guards. After a few seconds, the other two prisoners knock out one of the four guards. The juggling prisoner throws the rocks at the other three guards, knocking them out as well. The prisoners are able to escape the camp.
In case anyone was wondering how in the world juggling is a 'klutzy skill', the Klutz company publishes awesome books, the first of which was about-that's right-juggling. And the title is related because I store my Klutz books in these black box things, which made me think of the indestructible black box in an airplane.
Thanks go to Balin and Jenburdoo and Shez for their participation in this puzzle.
Check out my NEW puzzle at the bottom of the page!
