Vampire bats have been attacking a different person in the village of Batsrus on different days of the week and they all managed to succeed in sucking a little blood from their victim. The victim fought off the attacking bat by using any weapon to hand.

Can you determine the amount of blood sucked from which person, on what day and what they defended themselves with?

1) Miss Fitch had 4ml of blood sucked from her neck before managing to fight the bat off, but not with her Handbag or Fist and this wasn't on a Saturday.

2) The bat that was fought off with a Walking Stick managed to suck 1.5ml more than the bat that attacked 2 days before the victim that used a Slipper to defend themselves, which was not Mr. Sachs.

3) Mr. Sachs had more blood sucked from him than the Saturday victim.

4) A bat was hit with a Fist 2 days after a bat was hit with a Handbag.

5) The victim that had 7ml of blood sucked was attacked the day before the victim having the least amount of blood sucked, which was not on a Wednesday.

6) Monday's bat attack was on Mrs Melbury who didn't fight the bat off with a Slipper.

7) Ms Trews did not use an Umbrella as her weapon.

Victim: Miss Fitch / Mrs Melbury / Mr. Sachs / Ms Trews / Mr Twiddle
Day: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday
Weapon: Handbag, Fist, Walking Stick, Umbrella, Slipper
Blood Sucked: 1ml, 2.5ml, 4ml, 6ml, 7ml

Every time I attempted this I got an inconsistency, but the answer to the teaser is not inconsistent. I am confuesed, but I like this one very much.

Answer is wrong. Walking Stick took 1.5ml MORE than the Slipper. Plus the Slipper was used BEFORE the Walking Stick.

Hopefully reading this clue again will help:
The bat that was fought off with a Walking Stick managed to suck 1.5ml MORE THAN THE BAT THAT ATTACKED 2 DAYS BEFORE the victim that used a slipper to defend themselves, which was not Mr. Sachs.

Your clue needs to be rewritten. There are multiple ways to interpret it. You say before the victim who used the Slipper. If there are two separate clues then break them apart. Plus how is Wednesday 2 days before Tuesday?

This clue was intended to be confusing. Does this help:

The victim that used the slipper, who was not Mr. Sachs, was attacked 2 days after the bat attacked the victim that had 1.5ml less sucked, than the bat that was fought off with the walking stick.

I agree that the second clue should be revised! Other than the frustration associated with that, very amusing

This was a small motivation for my Hell's Attack teaser. Loved it, very violent and evil.

As per clue (2) - the Walking Stick was used two days after the Slipper. Therefore, the Slipper could not have been used on Tues, Fri, or Sat., and the Stick could not be used on Mon, Tues, or Sat. Similarly, as or clue (4), the Handbag could not have been used on Tues, Fri, or Sat, and the Fist could not have been used on Mon, Tues, or Sat. This leaves the Umbrella for both Tues and Sat.

It is a really challenging teaser and I had fun doing it! I got most of the answers correct. I agree with 'addicktd' the whole point to this is not to go to Batrus. A very evil village to visit!

You guys do realize that clue number 2 is supposed to be confusing. All you have to do is read it slow, phrase by phrase, don't expect it to be just handed to you, whats the fun in that? By the way, excelent clues, great puzzle. I have to admit though, the lack of a thursday did through me off for a bit, but thats what I get for not reading the tabs closer. I hope we get more from you of this quality. And don't be frustrated by those that can't read english.

I really enjoyed this teaser. I think clue 2 is fantastic! It has a lot of _really_ useful information in it, you just have to read it very carefully and keep coming back to it as you get more filled out. I much prefer this kind of "tricky" clue to those that hand you the answer on a plate!!

Great Job!

THIS PUZZLE IS FLAWED! Sorry I had to yell, but I have racked my brain for days on this thing. Clue 2 states that the slipper was used two days after the walking stick. The answer states that the slipper was used on Friday while the walking stick was used on Tuesday. Obviously Friday IS NOT two days after Tuesday. They are TWO SPACES APART because Thursday is left out. WHOEVER WROTE THIS PUZZLE NEEDS TO CHANGE CLUE 2 TO READ THREE DAYS APART! Thank you.

Oct 28, 2005

AAAAGH!!!! Sorry about the previous post... I missed it. Miss Fitch and the walking stick have nothing to do with the two days! Miss Fitch is 1.5 more than Sachs who was attacked 2 days before the slipper. GEEEEEZE THAT WAS HARD!!

Tricky tricky! Actually gave up on it the first bunch of tries, then tried again today and got it on the first try. Doh!

READ CLUE 2 CAREFULLY The bat that was fought off with a Walking Stick managed to suck 1.5ml more than the bat that attacked 2 days before the victim that used a Slipper to defend themselves. The only amount which could be 1.5 more than another amount is 2.5, which is 1.5 more than 1. The only days that could be 2 days before any other days listed are Monday (two days before Wednesday) and Wednesday (two days before Friday) 1ml is the least amount of blood so according to clue 5 it could not be Monday since The victim that had 7ml of blood sucked was attacked the day before the victim having the least amount of blood sucked. Therefore the victim having the least amount of blood sucked had to be on Wednesday, the victim having 7ml sucked had to be on Tuesday and the day the victim used a slipper to defend himself or herself had to be Friday. Some of the answer is right but a lot is wrong Here is what I figure is right: Monday Mrs. Melbury Handbag 6ml; Tuesday Mr. Sachs Umbrella 7ml; Wednesday Ms Trews or Mr Twiddle Fist 1ml; Friday Miss Fitch Slipper 4ml; Saturday Ms Trews or Mr. Twiddle Walking Stick 2.5 ml. The clues don't mention Mr. Twiddle and only say that Ms Trews did not use an Umbrella as her weapon, which does not help. Clue 5 only makes sense if the last phrase "which was not on a Wednesday" refers to the day that victim that had 7ml of blood sucked and not the victim having the least amount of blood sucked which I have already stated MUST have happened on Wednesday!!!!!!! This is not a well written puzzle!!!!!!

Sorry, _last guy that posted_, I didn't read your whole comment yet. I stopped when you said the "only" option for 1.5 ml more was 2.5. You are incorrect, sir. 4ml is also another problem.

I am having troubles with this grid, but hey, if I didn't like a challege, I wouldn't pick one rated so hard.

No reason to be mad at the author simply because he is the master of trickery.

Something is really screwed up here. In the comment above I started with ten blushing faces and it said that I used too many emoticons please limit to ten so I started to delete them and by the time it let me post them it was down to three which is a lot less than ten now I am starting with ten evil faces let's see how many it will let me post.

Thank you Splatt, after I saw where I had gone wrong I solved the puzzle in a few minutes. I can't believe that I didn't See that . I apologize to Cinnamon for what I said about this being a poorly written puzzle. My carelessness caused me to make a fool out of myself.

Misreading clue 2 messed me up the first couple attempts, but once I read that clue correctly, I was able to solve it. Very good one!

WOW! That was great. Must have been the hardest one that I have ever attempted, and no, I didn't get it, I guess I'm a quitter. After reading the comments, I'm not sure if I could solve it or not.

Feb 22, 2006

Wow, that was awesome, but really hard , and if I am correct, the slipper part of clue 6 is unneeded. I completely missed the skip of Thursday, but once I saw that, I still couldn't get it
Gnius*
Mar 01, 2006

This really sucked... I tried solving it for a very long time until i gave up and checked your answer...
The answer you gave is incoherent with clue number 2...
You state in clue number two that the person that used the slipper was 2 days after the person that had 1 ml sucked out of him. In your answer you state that the slipper is 1 day before 1ml...
Recheck the whole thing... you screwed up and that gave ALL OF US A HARD TIME...

Mar 01, 2006

Sorry... I rechecked and I'm wrong... This Was A Very Good One... Looking forward for more from you...

You have to be careful on clue 2.
There was some confusing grammar. Let me interpret... The bat that was fought off with a Walking Stick managed to suck 1.5ml more than bat X, and bat X was attacked 2 days before the victim that used a Slipper to defend themselves, which was not Mr. Sachs.
Now you are looking at 3 bats in this clue and not just 2. The bat attacked by a Walking Stick, an unnamed bat (bat X), and the bat attcked by the slipper. The puzzle is much more managable once you've figured this out.

Great Teaser! Didn't take me that long, but I did have to read very carefully, which made it more fun and challenging than most of these. Love reading all of the frustrated comments from people who didn't read it carefully enough and think it's somehow your fault.

OMG! Kudos to you on this one. I still haven't figured it out, but will be coming back to it. This is one to print and work on a little at a time (so you don't go "batty")!
Clue 2 threw me for a bit, but after reading it several times was able to break it down to the 3 bats. Still can't figure out which bat is the mystery bat though.

Great teaser! Clue 2 is the tough one, but is extremely well written, so I was able to figure it out. With the first couple read-throughs, I wasn't sure what the last part re: Mr. Sachs was referring to. Since the first part of the clue was about a bat, and not about a person (i.e. Mr. Sachs), it all came together. Amazing and ingenius!!! Don't listen to the complainers - they want the answers handed to them on a silver platter

Funny to see all the wrong summaries of clue #2 listed above. I got the stick and 4 ml's mixed up the first time, but I started the grid over and everything fell into place perfectly. Super fun puzzle!
I solved clue 2 by dealing with it in two parts, the bat hurt by the walking stick sucked 1.5 more than someone else. And the bat attacking 2 days before the slipper sucked 1.5 mls less than someone else.

Alternately, you could say, there are 2 days between the bat that sucked 1.5 more than the walking stick, and the bat that was shooed with the slipper.

Great teaser!! Definitely made me think, and the clues are great--difficult, but doable, and I felt pretty good when I figured them all out.
