Safari GameLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
A group of friends is on safari (a photo-safari, no animals were killed during the creation of this teaser!). During the game, they are awarded points for each animal they get. For example,
LION=4 points minimum
HYENA=11 points minimum
GIRAFFE=14 points minimum, but would be worth over 64 points in a certain situation.
Based on this information, what is the minimum number of points for a ZEBRA?
Bonus question: when would a GIRAFFE be worth more than 64 points?
HintWhat game gives points for words?
AnswerZEBRA=16 points minimum
The game they were playing is Scrabble, so the minimum number of points therefore Z=10, E=1, B=3, R=1 and A=1, for a total of 16 points.
Note that this minimum is based on not forming other words with letters, and not placing letters on a double/triple letter or double/triple word score.
Bonus: GIRAFFE is a seven letter word. If you use all 7 of your letters when forming a word, you get a 50 point bonus!
