Good one...took 2 iterations and then just process of elimination.

Yeah, I got it right. Nice job, both you and me!

Nice job! I didn't need the last clue.

I liked this, but you gave a lot more info than needed if you ever want to make a harder one.

Lots of fun! I too managed to solve it without the last clue, since everything fell neatly into place with Clue #8.

because there were so many clues I confused myself a little bit with excess information... but in the end I got it and it was a LOT of fun!

Good Teaser!

y didnt this go into logic grid instead of plain logic?????????

Shopaholic- It's not in the Logic Grid category because it won't fit a grid. In order to solve this, one must draw a line with East at one end and West at the other. Put six dots on the line to represent houses, and below each dot, write in the clues you know about each.

Lovely. Not too hard, but not too easy at the same time .
