Five people (who vaguely know each other and are really eccentric) have a great passion for music. Each of them plays a different instrument. However, they are constantly forgetting each other's first and last names, the instrument they play, their ages and their professions. Your job is to figure out everyone's full names, their ages, their favourite instrument and their jobs.
1.No person's first name shares an initial with his/her last name.
2.Allen is always feeling sleepy because her neighbour has a habit of playing his drums in the middle of the night.
3.Neither of the women's ages (who play the guitar and the piano) are an even number.
4.The flutist is older than Joseph, who is older than Ivan, who is not the youngest.
5.Michael, the scientist, is the oldest person in the group.
6.Angela's last name makes Daniel feel hungry.
7.Joseph is 12 years older than the doctor, who is 26 years younger than the teacher.
8.Most people do not agree with the engineer (who is half as old as Coleman) that he plays the bagpipes excellently.
9.Julia's career involves educating young minds.
10.The lawyer lives next to Julia Allen.
11.The pianist is not 21 years old.

Guys, please tell me what you think of my teaser. After all, this is only my first one.
Jun 06, 2005

clues 2 and 10 were unnecessary.

Otherwise, I think it was a great logic puzzle. I enjoyed it.
Jun 06, 2005

Well, yeah, I know. But this was the third time I submitted the teaser, so I'm just glad that it was accepted.
Jun 06, 2005

I agree that 2 and 10 aren't needed. And yes, other than that it was a good puzzle.
Jun 06, 2005

Decent easy large teaser! Always a fan of teasers that involve music.
Don't know about you, but the name Morton makes me hungry.
Mmmmm, Jelly Roll Morton....

Thanks, guys, for liking it.

Great teaser -- especially for a first submission! (I did wonder a little bit about a 21 year old doctor though. LOL! )

As I was trying to say -- YIKES, how do I edit my comments? I gave away more info in my first one than I meant to.
Jun 10, 2005

Jun 12, 2005

I had a lot of fun with this one!

Didn't take too long and it was difficult, but not frustrating.

Thank you!
Jun 28, 2005

That was a great teaser!!! It wasn't too hard, but it was definately fun!! Submit more!
Aug 15, 2005

fun and not toooo easy.. liked it a lot
Nov 17, 2005

Good Job! I thought it was easy but that is not bad!!! And I also think that unnecessary clues are not a bad thing either, they are kind of like curve balls, make you think that maybe you missed something?????? and I think that Morton frozen dinners MIGHT make you more hungry than Jelly Roll Morton But Bacon would surely make ME more hungry Good Job Especially for a first teaser!!!!
Feb 08, 2006

Yes this was a good one. It should have a higher difficulty rating though.
Mar 31, 2007

I like this one! It's pretty good for a first teaser. I was contemplating looking at the answers...that's how you know they're good .
Sep 25, 2007

I have to agree, this was a pretty good teaser. Good job on your first try. I used clue 2, but also agree that 10 was absolutely no help at all. You already know everything stated in that clue by the time you get there. I'll be looking for more from you!
Oct 12, 2009

This is nice for a 1st teaser. But clues 1 & 2 were not needed.
Feb 01, 2011

I dont understand,why Angela`s last name is Bacon?Why Ivan`s last name is Morton? There is a not any arguments for that!Why Michel is Coleman?Why he is 52 years old?There is not any arguments for that too.Why Ivan is 26 years old?Please, explain this teaser.
