Question Mark is the host of a new game show called "Radical Rush". It is a game of 4 rounds. A logic round, a rebus round, a mathematics round and a final face-off. One player is eliminated after each round, with the last player left being the winner. Each player is color-coded. Now you must work out the full names of the contestants, the age of the contestants, their color-code and which round they were eliminated in (and who won).

First names: David, Joanne, Richard, Xavier, Yvette
Last names: Bridge, Hall, Rade, Richburgh, Sands
Ages: 22, 24, 26, 29, 33
Color-codes: Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange
Round Eliminated: Logic, Rebus, Maths, Face-off, Winner

Round 1 (LOGIC): This round was straight forward for Xavier, Miss Bridge and the player aged 29. The green player and the player aged 26 did not find this round as easy. It was a close call but in the end, the yellow player was eliminated.

Round 2 (REBUS): This round was slightly harder, however it was a walk in the park for Richard, who came in first place for this round. Yvette, Mr Rade and the red player did not find this round as easy. However, after she realised what she was doing wrong, The 22-year-old quickly took second place. Now it was just up to Xavier and the 29-year-old, however it was all over for Mr Rade.

Round 3 (MATHEMATICS): Once again, the difficulty level increases as the remaining three players try their math skills. No-one seemed to do particularly well here. The first place finisher was Miss Bridge. The battle for a spot in the Face-off was between Xavier and the green player. He put everything he knew into this round, however it wasn't enough to save Mr Hall, our unfortunate 33-year-old.

Face-off: Two players remain with the same goal: to become the very first winner of "Radical Rush". The 22-year-old and Mr Richburgh must race each-other in a maze. Whoever reaches the end first, wins the game. It was a race too close to call, however the red player was fast enough to steal victory from the very unfortunate orange player.

Answer

In order of elimination:

ROUND 1: Logic
Joanne Sands, 26, Yellow
ROUND 2: Rebus
David Rade, 29, Blue
ROUND 3: Mathematics
Richard Hall, 33, Green
ROUND 4: Face-off
Yvette Bridge, 22, Orange
WINNER
Xavier Richburgh, 24, Red

In round 1, we know that Xavier and Miss Bridge are not 26 and 29. Nor are they the green player. At the moment, it is unclear who the yellow player is.

It is not immediately clear who was eliminated from round 1. However we do know that Richard, Yvette and Xavier survived. We know that Richard is not Mr. Rade, because Mr Rade lost round 2, and Richard won.

In round 3, we find out that David was eliminated in round 2, because we know that Richard and Yvette made it to round 3, however we were unsure of Xavier. Although "Xavier and the green player" tells us that Xavier made it to round 3. It also tells us that Richard is the green player, and that Joanne is the yellow player and was eliminated in round 1, and tells us that Yvette is 22.

In the Face-off, we know that Yvette and one other player is left. That player could be Richard or Xavier. The player is red. We already know that Richard is green, so he was eliminated in round 3. However this doesn't tell us who the winner is. Well, in round 2, you can tell that Yvette is not the red player, so that means that she is the orange player and Xavier is red, and Xavier won.

You can also gather other clues with the information.

Nice. The fact that a player was in a later round was an additional clue.

Probably my favorite one ever. I mixed up a couple of clues, so I got the puzzle wrong, but it was so fun working it out. GREAT JOB.

Great one! Had to do it twice, but enjoyed every minute. Excellent clues, and I like the way one can jump ahead for clues (colors, etc) and go back to eliminate. Thanks!

Nice twist with the clues. After messing it up going in the given order, I found it much easier to solve the clues in reverse order.
