Alice came across a lion and a unicorn in a forest of forgetfulness. Those two are strange beings. The lion lies every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the other days he speaks the truth. The unicorn lies on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, however the other days of the week he speaks the truth.

Lion: Yesterday I was lying.
Unicorn: So was I.

On which day did they say that?

It was fun, but I think it could have been more challenging with more characters. Good job, all the same.

At first I said Sunday but then I thought about it and went through all the days. Thursday was the only one that fit. That was fun!

Nice teaser. Pretty simple once you draw a quick chart, but still fun! I think the answer could have been written a little more clearly though.

I worked it out thusly:
If the Lion is telling the truth, it must be Thursday. If he's lion, it must be Monday.
If the Unicorn is telling the truth, it must be Saturday. If he's lying, it must be Thursday.
So it's Thursday. The Unicorn's a-lyin', and the Lion isn't.

Super easy. The way you explained the answer was much harder to follow than finding the answer was!

This was ok to figure out. BUT the answer was )(^%$. Nowhere in the "answer " does it say that Thursday is correct answer. It cloudily implies that is answer.

I didn't like this one very much Sorry just didn't

I agree. Teaser was good, but it could have been clearer in the answer that Thursday was correct. Oh and I got it right.
