lol it would be easier in real life because you can test if they are empty or not

This was fun! But why couldn't the antidote be bottle #4?
relayAus*
Nov 29, 2007

your actually right! Number four could also be an antidote, cuz number 7 could also be water, i never noticed that
well if someone like edits this teaser they should so like add another set of answers where #4 is an antidote and and #7 is a water bottle. Thanks for pointing that out.

If 4 was the Antidote and 7 was Water then there would be more than 2 bottles placed between the 2 waters... doesn't work.

Sorry to burst your bubble scallio (?) but there would be two bottles between four and seven

Like this...

4. Water
5. (First Bottle)
6. (Second Bottle)
7. Water

Do you understand know?

Something that someone is saying isn't right. Relay, a couple of posts ago, you said that #4 could be an antidote, but in the post just before mine, you said that it was water. I think this will work (maybe this is what people meant).
1. Antedote, 2. Empty, 3. Empty, 4. Water, 5. Poison, 6. Poison, 7. Water, and 8 through 11 is the same as in the original answer.

Sorry if I seem too critical. Thought it was a great teaser. Lots of fun!

Never mind. The second possible set of answers I just gave is wrong. I forgot about how the Antidote is in between a Poisoned Bottle and an Empty Bottle.

Actually, it seems to me that the following is true:
1) bottles 8-11 are irrelvant (except that 8 must be empty), because they are always empty, empty, poison, poison.
2) based on the remaining clues there are 3 possible answers (abbreviating the bottle labels A, E, P, W)

E E W W P P A
W E E W P P A
W E E A P P W

Unless I missed something - can someone enlighten me?

man, y'all are too critical....just leave it at the first answer and be happy. I made this one night when I was bored and had nothing else to do so just be happy that there is something for y'all to do...okay thanks.

relay, regarding your remark "man, y'all are too critical," I must reply by saying that my comment was not meant to be critical bbut corrective. Since there are multiple correct answers, according to the puzzle, it should be so noted

I am looking forward to more of your work.

E E W W P P A
or
W E E A P P W
wouldn't work, it says there are 2 between the waters.

Why do relay's teaser(s) and quiz(zes) all have comments by her saying, "y'all are too critical"

Well friends i am getting two possible solution for this puzzle.Can somebody check whether i am right?
W E E W P P A E E P P

W E E W E P P A E P P

Feb 29, 2008

You'r second answer is incorrect because there's always an empty bottle next to another empty one.

My first guess..
Open the bottles and smell them!

I got this one right but some of you guys are a little mixed up . Antedote can't be number 4 (water MUST go there) and it can't be number one (because the A has to go between a P and an E). See what I mean? Anyone agree?
