When looking through the two tags descriptions and related questions, to me they seem to fall under the same category. They both set up a seemingly normal situation with some twist that requires outside the box thinking to come to the unique correct answer.

Should & be merged/made synonymous or is there a clear enough distinction that I am missing?


's tag wiki excerpt says:

A puzzle that involves figuring out what happened with regard to a certain incident.

This is generally how I use it (not only on my own posts but also when editing other people's, which I do a lot).

So no, they're not describing the same thing. Either tag can be used without the other in a reasonable way.
