Albert Einstein's Riddle (Or so they tell me)

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by Ljiljan, Oct 1, 2009.

  1. Probably as much einstein's riddle as my left buttcheek's riddle, but still not a bad one.

    Ava go

    1. In a street there are five houses, painted five different colours.
    2. In each house lives a person of different nationality
    3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.



    1. The Brit lives in a red house.
    2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
    3. The Dane drinks tea.
    4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
    5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
    6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
    7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
    8. The man living in the centre house drinks milk.
    9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
    11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
    12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
    13. The German smokes Prince.
    14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
    15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water.

    When you get the answer, keep it to yourself, dont spoil it for others who want to try. If your desperate to check, google is your friend.


  2. You can't own fish, man. They're God's fish.
  3. YES I GOT IT HAHAHA i feel i accomplished something here today, i guess it took around 30minutes! :nail:smashed it
  4. I guess that puts me in the top 2% as I got it right.
  5. Got it!

    (that's just to lengthen the post to 10 characters)
  6. Hey i dont know about the 2% thing, i think anyone can figure it out given enough time and paper :music:
  7. I got it, a tip is to start with what you know.
  8. I made a little spreadsheet!

    Start with the house colours then you can work it out from there (eventually)
  9. took me a while - but I got it!
  10. woohooo Go Visio for moving shapes around!
    (still took an hour)
  11. visio?

    EDIT: don't worry - googled it
  12. yep the nerd arose in me as well, I am matti-san and I love spreadsheets! :oops:
  13. Pfft that was the easiest riddle ever.

    Took me like 2 seconds on google!
  14. I miss Lotus 123 :(
  15. quote of the month :rofl:
  16. Got it with pen and paper, took me about 45 minutes.
  17. DAMMIT!

    took me a while to work out a method, and was foiled in the end by the green/white "left" issue. Method was sound, but my assumption of left placement was not. Solved very quickly when assumption corrected.

    took freakin' forever though.
  18. I still use F7 for spell checker on Word, a hangover from my Word Perfect days.
