Super Scrabble is a game for eight players. Two boards are used, and the two sets of tiles are combined. The players, in turn, can play on either of the boards. To determine the order of play, each player draws a tile. Howard drew "T", Betty drew "J", Walter drew "H", Lily drew "O", Fred drew "B", Nancy drew "F", and Jason drew "M". After drawing her letter, Alice asked, "Can anyone logically figure out what letter I drew?" After a few moments, Jason replied, "I know what letter you drew." He was correct. What letter did Alice draw? How did Jason know?


Answer

Alice implied that there was a logical solution. Jason (as well as Alice) noticed that each person drew a letter that could replace the first letter of his/her name to make a valid English word. Using the same formula, the only letter that Alice could have drawn was "S".

Howard, T, toward
Betty, J, jetty
Walter, H, halter
Lily, O, oily
Fred, B, bred
Nancy, F, fancy
Jason, M, mason

thus

Alice, S, slice
