Obvious_Overture: As I have stated earlier, I know no solution to this puzzle.

possibly you could furnish us with more background on where you found this puzzle? don't you think it would be interesting to know if there is a solution after so much conjecture?

What if the king is not happy about you trying to leave? ๐
Your not trying to leave, you just want to cook hamburgers for the King!

The king loves hamburgers, why should the king not help someone who just wants to please him by making him some tasty food ?

The question did say the king can do anything, but it did not say that the king knew everything. If he doesn't know that he is going to have a heart attack &amp; die, he won't have time to do anything about it (assuming it is a swift one of course)........

Of course there is always plan B

By lateral thinking, Imagine the cross shape room is square &amp; full of boxes, in other words a box room. Then think yourself outside the box.

or plan c

Get the rope &amp; skip over one of the walls.

or plan D

Stand very close to the wall of fire &amp; break out in a sweat.

or plan E the old favourite

Ripe the paper bag in half, two half's make a whole, escape through the hole.

You don't need to get out of the room because you already are. the truth is that the walls are really keeping the rest of the universe in. you, the king and the rest are truly the only things outside.

According to this guy who gave me the problem, the problem was created by a employee at the Microsoft corp. This person is named Alex Lee, and even though he's got a high position in Microsoft, I have yet to find any solution to this problem.
