A group of soon-to-be-first-years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry just walked into the Great Hall. Everybody has been sorted into a house of either Slytherin, Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, or Ravenclaw. Hufflepuff = Loyal and Trustworthy; Ravenclaw = cunning and intelligent; Gryffindor = brave and noble; Slytherin = keen and ambitious.
There are still 4 kids to be sorted. Their names are Billy, Shelby, Anthony, and Kristen. The sorting hat takes some time for each kid. Find out the amount of time the hat took and which house each kid ended up in.

Clue 1. Shelby is VERY smart.

Clue 2. Billy is a scaredy cat.

Clue 3. Billy and the boy in Slytherin took under a minute to be sorted.

Clue 4. Billy always keeps promises and is not very bright.

Clue 5. The person in Gryffindor took the longest.

Clue 6. Anthony was the fastest to be sorted.

Clue 7. Billy was sorted 30 seconds faster than the Ravenclaw.

I have read Harry Potter, but I don't think that knowledge of the books or films affects this puzzle one way or the other. I think that it is a very good puzzle, even though a few of the clues seem to be unnecessary

That was really cute. A few of the clues weren't needed, but it was fun to work out. I love to watch the Harry Potter movies with my son.

Just a tip if you ever submit another...You should have listed the times in the question; not everyone uses the logic grid solver.

Mar 09, 2009

Great Teaser, Thanks!
Jun 16, 2010

I agree with PineappleMama. Still a good teaser especially for Harry Potteer fanatics like me. Very fun!
Aug 21, 2013

The only thing I don't like about it is the way Hufflepuff is portrayed as dumb. There are plenty of smart or brave Hufflepuffs - they just aren't haughty enough for Ravenclaw, or bold enough to be in Gryffindor. Overall one of my favorite teasers though! Keep them coming!
Jul 08, 2015

That was really fun! Good for beginners, but on the easier side for.
