## Safari Game

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #5699 Fun: (2.82) Difficulty: (2.11) Category: Logic Submitted By: Gizzer

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?

 Gembolah Jul 27, 2002 Hmm, I didn't think of that. I instead put the numbers to powers. 4^1.74 about equal to 11, and 11^1.74 is about equal to 64. jasin Jul 29, 2002 when did u say that they were playing a game.........I just read that they were on a safari. jasin Jul 29, 2002 Sorry I get it now..............duh. george1978 Jul 30, 2002 here is the opening paragraph again. 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 Mogmatt16 Aug 05, 2002 ha ha good one! Skellum Aug 11, 2002 Nice one! I got it quite quickly, but I play scrabble often. Good work hiding "game" in there. I didn't think of the 50 point bonus and was trying to get a double letter, triple word. :-) blinkgoddess182 Sep 19, 2002 You can't use 7 of your letters to make GIRAFFE, because one letter has to be on the board. UNLESSSSS you'd be able to get the 64 points for giraffe would be the first move of the game, except that one tile would have to be placed on the star, and isn't that a double-tile square? Gizzer Sep 19, 2002 Blinkgoddess, you can add GIRAFFE to the board using all 7 letters if there is room. For instance, you can put GIRAFFE with the E under (or to the right) of the H in HYENA. You get more than 64 points because you would get points for making HE. NickdelaG Jan 31, 2003 Also, if there is an "S" somewhere, it could be Giraffes. Therefore the person playing would be in fact spelling "Giraffe," but also be making another word. Of course, this would net more points than just "Giraffe," but that's ok, right?? ;-) sakirski Jan 31, 2003 I like the teaser, but I fail to see how this belongs in the logic category. Riss Jan 31, 2003 cute ^-^ . I got the Scrabble thing, but couldn't remember all the point values for the different letters bearppbj Feb 19, 2003 Gizzer, you can't put the word giraffe under the H in Hyena. You have to connect it THROUGH a word. The only way to put it under is to also put it through another word. Gizzer Feb 20, 2003 Bear, I can indeed put GIRAFFE on the board so that the E lines up with the H in HYENA to make the word HE. If there's room. At turn #3 there would be plenty of room. And it certainly isn't against the rules of the game. marymary May 07, 2003 you guys play too much scrabble!!! hahaha-I loved the teaser!! teazerbob May 27, 2003 This teaser is not a good one. If you are not familiar with the rules of scrabble the bored game (:, you would have no chance. taniapereira99 Aug 24, 2003 I'm a scrabble fan so I'm one of them who really enjoyed this one (and the banter later as well)... bookwormRLB Feb 02, 2004 Umm, you didn't explain how the giraffe would be more than 64 points. I take it you mean when you use all seven tiles and have it on a doulbe or triple letter or word? sweetime Sep 23, 2005 i got it!! i got it!!! hehe, loved it gizz, twas a very cute teaser Question_Mark Jan 27, 2006 I liked and laughed at the fact it said "no animals were harmed in the making of this teaser". Giraffe would be worth 128 or 192 (double/treble word scores). Or more (double/treble letter scores). Great teaser though giz ! solarsistim321 Mar 02, 2006 Nice one! i didn't get the answer but still it was very very very very clever 4kai2lyn6 Oct 16, 2006 Cool..... I didn't get the point values, but I knew it was Scrabble...( a very, VERY fun game indeed, by the way) 4kai2lyn6 Oct 16, 2006 Cool.....
