Five brothers share a common trait of forgetfulness that has gotten them in hot water with their girlfriends. After a string of forgotten birthdays, anniversaries and even dates, the brothers' girlfriends were fed up. After a brainstorming session, the brothers devised a new holiday - Girlfriend Appreciation Day. For the big day, the five brothers have dates with their girlfriends. Each one bought a different gift and a dozen roses of a different color. Each couple is going to a different destination on their date. Determine each brother's name, the name of their girlfriend, the gift and color of roses he is giving her, and their date destination.

Brothers - Ted, Tim, Tom, Travis, Tyler
Girls - Andrea, Brooke, Jessica, Laura, Vanessa
Gift - Bracelet, Candy, Music Box, Necklace, Ring
Color of Roses - Pale Purple, Pink, White, Red, Yellow
Date Destinations - Basketball Game, Dinner, Ice-Skating, Movie, Theater

1. The five brothers are: Tyler, the brother giving his girlfriend the ring and red roses, the one giving his girlfriend pink roses, the one taking Laura to a movie, and the one taking his girlfriend ice-skating.
2. The five girlfriends are: Andrea (who isn't going to the basketball game), the woman getting the ring, Brooke (who isn't getting the bracelet); Ted's girlfriend, and the one getting the candy and the yellow roses.
3. The brother taking his girlfriend to the movie is either Tim or Tyler (who isn't giving his girlfriend the necklace).
4. Vanessa and Ted's girlfriend (who isn't receiving the necklace) are, in some order, the woman going to the theater and the one receiving white roses.
5. Neither Travis nor Tom (whose girlfriend isn't Andrea) is taking his girlfriend to the basketball game.

I love you Marianne Renee Ball!!!!

May 26, 2005

That was a great teaser! I was stuck for a long time as I had missed one of the clues, but I finally got it!
May 26, 2005

Way too hard.
May 26, 2005

its not way to hard. but i have to say it made me think.. i have seen harder but i did stare at the grid for 5 min before i saw something i missed and then the rest of the puzzle fell into place. u can't just look at the clues u have to use substitution like "what place can the color pink roses go?" and a lot of following the grid.. very good job! keep up the good work and soon u might have a teaser that takes forever to solve.... my first try i made one really hard that took a lot of people a long time, but i think for me the one with the vamper bats or the one with santas reigndeer took me the longest... i can't chose between them..... all in all just u did a very good job!
May 27, 2005

It was so hard! Thanxs
May 27, 2005

Good job! Really made me stop and think which is what this teaser is supposed to do. You accomplished that very well.
May 27, 2005

Very Well done!!!! Difficult but not impossible.
May 28, 2005

hard yet fun! THANX!
May 28, 2005

This was fun!
Jun 02, 2005

Awesome. A Good challenge. The best logic grid yet for me
Jun 03, 2005

Jun 12, 2005

Jun 23, 2005

Really hard. Good job!
Sep 01, 2005

I love your teasers, though there are some (Olympic swimmers!!!) that I haven't solved. This one did not take long, but alas, it does require an extra piece of paper for me. I just can't hold all that in my head. It took about 10 mintues. One of my faves, but I save your harder ones in my favorites.
Sep 01, 2005

Ok I checked your teasers and maybe the Olympic one isn't yours?? It is in your favorites. Still, I believe I have some of yours in my faves, too.

good teaser. now if only I could get my boyfriend to do ANY of these things...
Jan 26, 2006

I really enjoyed this teaser, and i liked the challenge element to it. Well done. Full marks from me!
Jun 18, 2006

This was GREAT. I enjoyed it very much. More like this!!!!!!!!
Aug 12, 2006

I loved it, and thought it was a sweet puzzle. All girls should be appreciated by their boyfriends, but it is also true the other way around. No fun in a relationship otherwise. I had fun working it, and thought that I had it the first time through, but alas, I messed up one thing, and thus screwed the rest of it up. What is sad is that it was my own fault, I put something on the wrong line in the grid meaning for it to go on the next line over. It is amazing how one tiny typo will mess everything up. Perhaps one of these days I will learn how to actually work a computer. lol. Great puzzle, and i will check out more of yours, if I have not already. I never can remember who has done what. lol

You are the one that did the Trilogy grids. I loved those. Keep up the great work, and I will work on more of your logic-grids tonight. Thanks for making them for us.
Sep 19, 2006

So I decided to whip through this logic grid teaser, just for fun, because I love these.

But alas, all was not looking too happy on Girlfriend Appreciation Day... I was forced to conclude that two of the bros were appreciating Brooke a little too much. Oops...

I started my investigation over again (so much for "whipping through!") ...and it turns out it was a case of mistaken identity, and all was okay after all. Whew...!
Nov 25, 2006

I loved it
Well written
Thanks keep them coming
Jan 25, 2007

Sep 21, 2007

Great teaser! It was a tough one that really had me thinking. Got it on the first try though! Yah me! I'll be looking for your other teasers as well. good job!
Oct 06, 2007

This was a very well designed grid. It is different from all the others i have done, and I enjoyed it .
Thanks and keep them coming.
Oct 30, 2007

Really good teaser! Have been working on it for quite some time, having to put it down and come back another day

Really glad to finally solve it, great job of writing it!
Dec 12, 2007

Great teaser. Somehow I mixed up the gifts along the top but they were correct going down. Huh...gotta double check before I hit the answer button!

Dec 29, 2007

Great teaser! It was pretty difficult but I did get it in the end (without having to start over). Nice storyline too.
Mar 15, 2008

I liked this one. The clues are straightforward and written very well - just had to use some logic to think through them.
Jun 02, 2008

Awesome teaser... loved it.
Dec 21, 2009

One of the greatest puzzles ever
Jun 07, 2011

YES! This was the BEST! Took me long enough, but was SO worth the time!! Maybe I'll try using the Grid Solver next time, but I've got to say, it's so much fun just working it out on my own! Thanks for the challenge
Dec 19, 2013

A good puzzle but did not make me think. It had lots of info to fill in and make you lose track, however, I wouldn't rate it as difficult at all because all of the clues are there already. I have done many logic grid games. The lesser the clues the harder the puzzle. A Puzzle that has 2 or 3 or max 4 clues are the hardest. I need to think in "if and then" terms and draw the clues out myself. Clues that are spoon fed are not clues for me. Make it harder. Arcturus Publishing Limited were so far for me the hardest logic grid book I ever bought.
Nov 05, 2014

I have one word that best describes this puzzle, AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Apr 24, 2015

Very good puzzle, took me 40 mins .Work appreciated
Sep 23, 2015

The hint is more or less implied, but otherwise it was a fun solve
