 gap6297 Aug 10, 2009 Good one! valencia Aug 11, 2009 loved this teaser braindeadmommia Aug 14, 2009 Good one! Really made me have to think. chaskey Aug 15, 2009 I finally solved it! And luckily before any obvious brain damage! gracieboo Sep 04, 2009 This is my second time on it and I still cannot get it!!! Are you sure it's solvable with only the clues given!?! katiebsmith Sep 16, 2009 There was not enough information. You had to take too many guesses. mom2boys Oct 03, 2009 No need to take a guess. From the clues, you can determine that one girl is 15 and the other girl is 17 or 18. Thus, neither girl can be 12. From clues 2 & 4 Robin and Drew can't be the 12 year old so the 12 year old has to be Phil. Once you know that Phil is the 12 year-old, the rest of the answers fall into place. Very nicely worded puzzle. mocha613 Dec 23, 2009 I could never figure out who was 17 and who was 18. qua006 Jul 20, 2010 It is solvable, took me a couple times. chriscat Oct 22, 2010 Took me a couple of restarts. I'm not sure why, unless it was carelessness, as it's fairly straightforward. But there are some good logical deductions you need in the process. Nice puzzle! Obilio Jan 12, 2013 Challenging = FUN Thank you! mom_rox May 07, 2014 Excellent Puzzle! Very fun because it wasn't straightforward. As others noted, no guesses are needed. Maybe it's just me, but I'm surprised it wasn't rated as being more difficult. My scratch sheet of paper is a mess, but I solved it.
