There's a book called Logic, Anyone? that goes into all of these types of problems.

I think this riddle is inherently flawed because the German doesn't drink beer and the Brit doesn't drink tea Smile

I solved this with a 6(x5) by 6(x5) grid. Makes the solution go a lot faster!

I remember a couple of years ago, we had to solve this in a Math(s) lesson. Some very clever people worked it out after an hour of puzzling.

2nd try
maybe it was not clear... the question is : what happens if we add fact # 16 ( =dog lives next to bird) to existing conditions ?

hehe this was a fun one. I used an upside down stair-step grid thingy to solve it... took longer to make the grid than to solve the puzzle Very Happy . We used those type of grids for this sort of puzzle in my "lets-find-an-excuse-to-get-the-annoyingly-smart-people-out-of-class-to-give-the-normal-people-a-break class" back in middle school. They were fun. I can't remember if they ever gave us anything that complex or not. Usually they only had 3 or four variables (but a whole lot less clues).

I tried the Einstein riddle twice. Both times I was convinced that the Norwegian was the one who owned the fish and the German was the one who owned the cats. Why did it keep on turning out this way? Maybe my headache's fogging my brain.

Well if the Brit drank tea and the German drank beer it would be to obvious.

This is like the logic puzzles you can buy. Can't remember the publisher (Dell?), but that's what they're called. And they give you a grid with the items to match up and eliminate with the given clues. I used to love to do those but they're not really riddles...


Yes, these are made under the name "Logic Problems" by Dell Magazines and by Penny Press.

You can find many online (without a grid, which doesn't help that much on hard ones) at http://www.allstarpuzzles.com

Alternate answer to Sydney Friday/Sunday riddle.
Home is on the other side of the international date line (and not Sydney).

probably either lives in sydney, or the time differences effected the effective timng of his departure and arrival
can i also just honestly say though, that i did that top riddle by myself too, when i was 12 years old. was so proud of myself but took like three days

A man goes to Sydney on Friday and comes home on Sunday, yet is only gone for 12 hours. How is this possible

The man travels at high enough speed to slow time in his "world" relative to our world. (Einstein's theory.....proven).

......I think.

Wouldn't this be possible if the guy lived in Hawaii??
If he left at 11:59pm on Friday, or thereabout! It would be Saturday in Sydney. Is this too obvious that it is incorrect?

the man travelled to another place on the earth, so he skipped time zones and days in just 12 hours.
