It is Halloween down in Spookyville and the residents are getting ready to do their annual potion finding contest. In this contest, each of 5 people are assigned an ingredient of the special potion that they are to find. The first one back with their ingredient is the winner. With the clues listed can you figure out who, what kind of monster they are, which ingredient they were assigned, and how long it took them to find it?


Names: Mr. Jack, Mrs. Greenskin, Mr. Redeye, Ms. Trans, and Mr. Blood
Monsters: skeleton, witch/warlock, vampire, ghost, and zombie
Ingredients: werewolf hair, vampire tooth, zombie blood, mummy bandage, and potion vial
Time: 20 minutes, 15 minutes, 10 minutes, 5 minutes, and 3 minutes

1. The skeleton, vampire, and ghost are: the monster that took 3 minutes to find their ingredient, Mr. Jack, and the monster that found the vampire tooth.

2. The monster that took 20 minutes to find their ingredient wasn't Mr. Jack or Mr. Redeye.

3. The skeleton either found the vampire tooth or the zombie blood.

4. Ms. Trans and Mrs. Greenskin are: the vampire, and monster that took 3 minutes to find their ingredient.

5. The zombie did not find the werewolf hair, which took 15 minutes to find.

6. Mr. Blood took twice as long as the zombie.

7. The zombie is either the monster that found the zombie blood, or the monster that took 10 minutes to find their ingredient.

8. The mummy bandage wasn't found by Mrs. Greenskin (who did not find the blood) nor the ghost.

9. The vampire either took 5 minutes to find its ingredient or found the zombie blood.

10. The monster that took 5 minutes either found the vampire tooth or the mummy bandage.

11. The vampire did not take 3 minutes to find its ingredient.

12. Redeye did not find the mummy bandage

Its a good teaser although poorly worded in parts

I think it's worded well - every answer is findable with the clues. But I admit, it took me awhlie, and I definitely had to to it on paper.

Hard, but fun. Thanks.

P.S. to cdrock - that other game? OMG, it really is wicked. I could play it all day.

#11 is redundant, it simply restates what #3 already said

I mean #11 repeats #4 not #3

Really Good Job!!!!!!!!!! I thought for a long time that this was impossible but I finally started to make some connections and then it all just fell in place

too much thinking for me--good job on the clues. I was going crazy with the "this or this" ones.

I liked this one you really had to read the clues and while #11 was pointless maybe it is there for a reason I do not know but this was a good one - good job

I had alot of trouble with this one. I didn't care for alot of the wording. Like line #9 refering to the vampire, "his ingredient" when I already had the vampire as a woman. That confused me a bit and made me think I had made a mistake.

Nice!!! I actually had to think on this one...

Nov 19, 2005

I quit when in clue 4 it states that the vampire is a woman and then later on it declares the vampire as "his"

Nov 22, 2005

Wait.... did someone correct #9, because I recall it said "its" referring to the vampire.

I guess all the pronouns were fixed by the time It ried this one. I liked it a lot! It took an extra set of paper to write the sets and subsets and eliminate who couldn't be what and then do the either/ors, but I got it! And now I feel very proud of myself. 3++ stars for you!

You really need to reword that better.

you'd think the monsters that were looking for things that were part of themselves (vampire looknig for vampire teeth, etc) wouldnt have to look very hard...

What a challenge!!! Took me quite awhile. Thanks for the teaser!!!

The wording is fine (tricky maybe, but that's the point) so either some mistakes were present and fixed before I got here, or some of you just confused yourselves. (Put an X for mistakes + confustion ...these things have taken over my life .) Tough puzzle, and I enjoyed the horror theme. Thanks.

I was worried when I saw the Difficulty Rating, but I managed to get it right on the first go-round! Plus, I enjoyed the writing! Thanks for a great teaser!

Not bad...it was fun, but not very tough, once I made 1 connection with clue #6 and clue #7 it was cake from there.

I liked how everything was an either-or/negative clue. It made it harder.

This teaser was fun, thank you for making it!
For those having trouble, you might want to try following this:
[you can look at these one at a time, then finish the rest yourself, I hope ]

1.) Between clues 1 and 4, you can deduce that Mr. J and the two women are the skeleton, vampire and ghost, and also that the vampire found the tooth.

2.) This identifies the skeleton as the finder of the zombie blood (cl.3)

3.) The zombie took 10 mins. (cl.7), and Mr. B. took 20 mins. (cl.6)

4.) Mrs. G. is not the ghost (cl. or the skeleton (cl.3), so she must be the vampire (cl.1) who found the tooth.

5.) Mrs. G. took 5 mins. (cl.9), leaving Ms.T. to be the one who took 3 mins., and Mr. J. (who is now identified as the ghost [cls. 3 and 5]) as 15 mins. (cls.1,4, and 5)

6.) The grid should do the rest, clues 10 and 11 are not needed, but clue 12 reveals the final choice. If you can not use the grid for some reason: Mr. R. must be the zombie (cls.1 and 6) who found the vial (cl.12)

Hope this helps anyone who needed some!

Summary: Ms. T., skeleton, blood, 3 mins.; Mrs. G., vampire, tooth, 5 mins.; Mr. R., zombie, vial, 10 mins.; Mr. J., ghost, hair, 15 mins.; Mr. B., warlock, bandage, 20 mins.
