Blellow is back with another crisis! He hosted a talent show for himself and 4 of his friends. He hired judges to judge the show, but only one of them showed up. The judge wrote down lots of details about the show, but wrote them in a language no one else at the show knew! You are studying aliens on a mission from Earth, and have been studying the exact language the judge wrote the details in, but cannot speak it fluently. You are able to read parts of the details, but not all of it. Help Blellow get his show wrapped up by figuring out which alien came in which place, how many fingers per arm they have, what their skin color is, and how many arms they have. Good Luck!

Names: Blellow, Qluxeh, Xrek, Zeneq, and Wsalhm
Places: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th
Fingers per Arm: 4, 5, 9, 10, and 13
Skin Color: Orange, Maroon, Peach, Pink, and Chartreuse
Arms: 2, 4, 5, 7, and 10

1. The 5 aliens are: Blellow, the one who came in 3rd place, the one with the most arms, the pink alien, and the alien with 13 fingers on each arm.

2. The alien with 3 more arms than the peach-colored alien has 5 less total fingers than Wsalhm.

3. The orange alien has the same number of arms and fingers per arm.

4. The alien with 10 total fingers came 2 places after Blellow.

5. Wsalhm has 7 arms (which is more than Qluxeh)

6. Neither the alien with 4 fingers per arm nor 10 fingers per arm came in 3rd place.

7. Xrek messed up several times, so he got 5th place.

8. The chartreuse alien, who didn't get 5th place, doesn't have 5 arms.

9. The pink alien came in a higher place than the peach alien did.

it was alittle cnofusing but fun once you think about it
May 23, 2006

Awesome! I got it even though the "total" number of fingers and arms did me in the first time I tried it. Thanks for a super teaser!!!
May 23, 2006

Great one!! The necessity to use math to complete the clues made this one extra fun.
May 23, 2006

That was terrific; I'm really liking these Blellow the Alien logic grids! You did a great job mixing in the math problems. Keep it up, looking forward to the next one!
May 24, 2006

This was was a little easier than the first one which took me a while, but still very well done. I like the math incorportated into the clues and that there were few obvious answers.
May 24, 2006

i need more practice or more patience....but am looking forward to trying another...

too difficult for me, but fun trying to solve it. was going to cheat and get the first answer to help me out and I already had Blellow in the wrond place.... oh well, guess i need to practice more.

Thanks for the teaser

May 28, 2006

According to Statement #4. The alien with 10 total fingers came 2 places after Blellow.
If Blellow came in 1st place then 10 fingers should have come in 3rd.
Wsalhm came in 2nd place, has 7 arms, is pink, and has 10 fingers. Not trying to be negative, but the math didn't add up
May 29, 2006

So Blellow came in 1st and the 3rd place alien had 10 TOTAL fingers. 2 arms and 5 fingers on each arm (2x5=10).

Tricky tricky!! LOL I like it.
May 30, 2006

irishego - Yes, VERY tricky, I was about ready to punch the screen after a minute because it kept tripping me up. Had to restart the grid window twice because of it.
Jun 15, 2006

it's too late for me to be doing these hard ones! Great job!!!

Great! I loved counting arms and fingers! I'll go check your other teasers!
Sep 28, 2007

This puzzle took me a very long time to get. Well designed, and must be read very carefully. Deserves one of the highest ratings possible. Great job.
Jan 20, 2008

Another awesome teaser! This one was tricky and the "10 total fingers" almost tripped me up, but I caught it just in time. Just wanted to add that clue #6 is completely unnecessary as I already knew everything in that clue by the time I got to it. I look forward to seeing Blellow again.
Mar 12, 2008

Really enjoyed this challenge. Like others, I didn't see the word TOTAL and was left with an impossible grid my first time through. (note to self: read all of the words) Looking forward to more.
Nov 01, 2009

I completely messed it up the first time! I wasn't paying attention to the TOTAL numbers of fingers.. man... Didn't look at the answer though, just looked at the first 2 comments...gonna try it again now
Feb 28, 2012

The author must been pretty creative, when can I meet these guys, lol
Aug 06, 2012

Blellow was green in the first puzzle, but now he is orange? I am glad I didn't automatically fill in chartreuse and left it open to discover that he is now orange.
Mar 19, 2013

Winsor, Blellow's SHIP was green in the first puzzle. His skin colour wasn't mentioned then.
Apr 12, 2013

You should make a video of this!!!
Apr 14, 2013

WOW, tricky indeed! Thanks for making this, really, one's this challenging but articulate are very rare!
Aug 27, 2015

Ingenious puzzle, but I'm frustrated! I've got all the fingers, arms and colours right, but I can't work out whether 2nd and 4th places should go to Zeneq or Wsahlm, I must be missing something.

You explained in the first how Blellow got his name, but with the others, do you just drop a handful of scrabble tiles and right down the result?
