Sam the journalist has landed a job somewhere. The problem is, he doesn't know where. All he knows is that it is in one of 6 cities lined up in a row in northern Canada: Eh Land, Hockeyville, Curling Town, Snowburg, New France, and Canada City. However his employer has left clues.

1. Curling Town is 2 cities away from the job's location.

2. Hockeyville is 3 cities away from Snowburg.

3. Snowburg is on the right end.

4. New France is not the location.

5. Eh Land is 3 cities from Curling Town.

6. Canada City is 4 cities away from Snowburg.

7. Eh Land is next to the location and another place that isn't the location.

Sam is lazy, so he is paying you to find out where he is working.

If I get no money for getting it right, should I also not get any money for getting it wrong? Is that fair?

what would prevent EH & CT from being switched, making CC the answer?

builder, clue 6 says cc is 4 away from snowberg.

I got it. Don't know how, but I did.Good teaser.

If you switched EH and CT clue 7 wouldn't work. Good one!
jorgesuervo*
Jul 08, 2006

Builder is right. If Eh Land & Curling Town were switched the Answer would be Canada City. Clue 7 could still hold true, Eh Land would be next to CC, which would be the town where the job is, and some other town on the otherside we weren't informed of. I know Canada is a desolate place, but they have more than 6 towns.

Totaly Awesome! A bit too easy, but these are a fantastic way to get your brain in gear. Logic puzzles are always fun to solve. Keep it up

I got it, but I had to use paper and a pen. Cool one!

Good puzzle. Enjoyed it, although it was a little easy. I also think it would have been easy to find real names of 6 towns in northern Canada for the puzzle- not necessarily 6 towns that are actually in order on a Provincial highway, but 6 real towns just the same. Might be a little more inclusive of our Northern neighbors! :-)

Eh Land is between two of the cities. Therefore it could not be switched with Curling Town. It cannot be the last city on the left and still be next to two cities.

Great teaser. I still find these rather hard, but am getting better. I was an English major, but if you can't use logic and READ one tends to stub their toe once in a while. But I did get this one so maybe practice helps. More please?

Pretty easy, but entertaining. Gotta love those Canadians.....and often you gotta love making fun of them.

WO XIHUAN LE ZHEGE. I LIKED THIS ONE! EASY, BUT STILL FUN, KEEP THEM COMING.

Jul 09, 2006

ok thanks, I read EH as being a place that was not the location, not as also being next to a place that was not the location.

I love this type of puzzle. This was pretty easy. Keep it up but let them be more challenging.

Okay, the clue was that Snow was on the right end, not the last on the right. I thought that meant just that it was to the right of center. The order I had was Canada City, Hockeyville, Curling Town, New France, Snowburg, Eh Land with Snowburg being the answer. All the clues fit!!!

I GOT IT, SO IT HAD TO B EASY

yep same here

Whoa!!! Eight parts!!! I thought it was a pretty boring teaser. No offense. I just got of a jet ski!!! And tubing, and kneeboarding, and water skiing, and Bonzaiing(tm), ect. ect. ect. I rated it full star/empty gear though. I thought I would have liked it without that memory fresh in my mind. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention EASY!!! IT IS THE EASEIST TEASER ON BRANGLE!!!!!! Sorry, I'm like a genius.

It is rather easy for me at least. But maybe that's because my I.Q. is 160 (probably because I made it though)

I'm surprised nobody has the same issue with the wording of the clues as I do. If city A is 3 cities away from city B, that means there are 3 cities in between cities A and B. "Three cities away" says you would have to go through 3 cities to arrive at your destination city. It is different than saying the "third" city in a line, in which there would be 2 cities between. Indulge a football analogy, a football is downed and placed 10 yards from the goal line. The goal line is the destination and is 10 yards away. The goal line does not occupy any of the 10 yards, it is NOT the tenth yard. Replace yards with cities.

My answer is

EL CC H CT NF SB

and working station is CC.

Still works
elentirAus*
Jul 08, 2009

@talkyboy

Your solution doesn't work - the last clue says EL is next to the location and next to a place that isn't the location. It cannot be on the end.
builderus*
Jul 08, 2009

actually to talk & others, clue 7 is a little vague in that the reference "and another place that is not the location" could mean next to another location or is another place that isn't the location.
This would make CC a viable solution.

Jul 08, 2009

loved the teaser! builder, get over it; you have to work within the directions given. And it's not as vague as you say. Besides, it's just a Brain Teaser so don't sweat it.

Just like a jigsaw puzzle. Unscramble the pieces and pretty easy.

Thanks for a great teaser! Nothing like a good old pen and paper to help you with this!! The payment that I request is sending MORE MORE MORE!!!! Thanks!!!

Too easy. You have cities 1-6 inclusive.

Snowburg is 6.
Hockeyville is 3.
Canada City is 2.

Eh Land is 3 cities from curling town, so curling town must be 1 or 4. Eh Land has 2 locations next to it, so it's not in 1. So put curling in 1, eh land in 4 and you know answer is 3 = Hockeyville. Don't need paper/pencil for this.

Direction number 7 is ambiguous. It could be interpeted that Eh Land is next to two locations that are not the 'City'. Better would be 'Eh Land is next to the 'City'. There is also another city it is next to.'
Also two different orderings give the same answer, Hockeyville.

What? No money? You hosehead!!! Fun teaser. I used to love to do logic problems. Might just have to get back into them again.
