Logic grid puzzles are my favorite. I normally get them very easily, but this puzzle was so confusing. There were too many "this person came before this color and this color came before this number" type clues. I had a lot of red x's on the grid but no green circles. I even tried to figure it out just on paper but I just gave myself a headache trying to figure out your puzzle.

When it became obvious that I was never going to solve clue #8, I gave up. Too tough for me.

For those having trouble getting started on this teaser, here's my initial grid solver using a process of elimination on the individual clues alone (in other words, I've only put an X if a single clue suggests that two attributes don't belong together):

Now to get an easy match, look at clue #7 to see which colour finished in "Place" and which number finished in "4th". Good luck!

This was one of the most difficult puzzles I have ever done. It took several tries before I was able to get it correct. I think the difficulty rating should be much higher.

This one took me close to an hour, but I got it right! It was fun, too. Thanks!

very very tough, thought the rating should have been harder. Got it but it took many many tries. Thank you for the tough puzzle.

I worked on several days to finally get this one! I feel almost brain-dead, but I got it after guessing on one square. (Cheating)! I did enjoy it!

WOW! What a brain workout! I actually had to print out the grid and the clues and make up my own little chart to solve this one. But...solve it, I did!!! Thanks for a really tough one.

After two false starts and hours of work, I finally solved this one. I didn't guess at all, but I also didn't follow the logic mentioned in the answer, so don't ask me how I did it. I guess I was just one with the grid.

Great teaser!

This one was a real toughie! Very enjoyable, one of the most difficult ones on this site. More, more! (pretty please with cherries on top?)

This took a fantastically long time! I loved every second of it. You've done a great job.

similar comment to phrebh - I did not have to resort to trial and error; but had to use some logic (of course ) to eliminate some squares.

cnmne - another excellent puzzle.

This one was REALLY tough, but I'm glad I saw it through because it was really fun! Like on another puzzle I did, I somehow knew who was in last place. Weird, huh?

Nice puzzle -- I like the hard ones. Took me a little while but all worked out. (Like the previous poster, though, I was put off by "Glue Factory" in the name!)

Man it was a pain.
I had to "check" my answers.

My grid was messed up, read the comments, so I guess it is my lil' old laptop that is messed up I drew a grid by hand to do it anyway, cause there aren't nearly enough challenging teasers to waste one! I loved it, thanks very much for your work!
