 Puzzle ID: #34254 Fun: (2.9) Difficulty: (2.68) Category: Logic-Grid Submitted By: scallio Corrected By: MarcM1098

When Kirana travels back to her home planet of Betelgeuse, she has many friends to visit and very little time so she plans a full itinerary. She visits 5 different friends who live in 5 different towns along a road 25 Gintars long (a unit of measure on Betelgeuse equal to roughly 1 mile). However, in her haste, she makes an embarrassing blunder at each home.

Can you determine Kirana's exact itinerary, how far each friend lives from the spaceport of Axim and which blunder was made at which stop? The distances are measured in whole Gintars (no fractions).

1. Kirana begins her trip in Axim and always travels East, never backtracking, until she reaches her final destination, the spaceport in Lisiter. The total distance between Axim and Lisiter is 25 Gintars.

2. At the home in Sarix, Kirana was asked to leave after knocking over an expensive Kimingle Vase.

3. The town of Claymot is twice as far from the Axim spaceport as the town where she stopped at her friend Martina's.

4. The incident where Kirana mistook the family's art display for a trash receptacle did not occur during her visit to Kylani's home. Who would have known it was a replica of a black hole?

5. Darvan, the third friend Kirana visited, lives 10 Gintars from Axim.

6. The house where Kirana got locked in the closet while snooping is twice as far from Axim as Nuju's house.

7. Claymot is closer in distance to Axim than it is to Lisiter.

8. The town of Worrik is twice as far from Axim as the town with the house where Kirana spilled Tango wine on the rug. The stains proved impossible to remove.

9. The town where Kirana visited Breena is nearer to the town of Riigi than to Jargon.

10. Traveling west-to-east, Kirana's first stop was at a friend's that lived 5 Gintars East of Axim and the last friend visited lived 5 Gintars West of Lisiter.

11. The house where Kirana got locked in the closet isn't the one in the town of Worrik.

12. The town where Darvan resides is situated 1 Gintar East of the town where Kirana walked in on her friend's mother taking a bath.

13. The town of Riigi is located 18 Gintars East of Axim, and Nuju does not live in Riigi.

Friends: Martina, Kylani, Breena, Darvan, and Nuju
Towns: Worrik, Sarix, Jargon, Claymot and Riigi
Blunders: Mistook art for garbage chute, walked in on mother bathing, spilled wine on carpet, broke vase, locked herself in closet

### Answer

 Thel Dec 05, 2006 Thank you for a very entertaining teaser! jazzmusician46 Dec 05, 2006 No way could I get that one!!! Well done Scallio! chaskey Dec 05, 2006 I finally finished it after a very difficult journey! The struggle was much fun! Spiritdance Dec 05, 2006 Very creative! Well done! scallio Dec 06, 2006 Thanks for the comments. I worked for a couple days on this teaser so I expect only good comments from everyone! Kidding, of course! vlerma Dec 06, 2006 I'm sure you did an excellent job of putting this together, however for me it was too much to decipher. Guess i don't have the patience for this type of puzzler. Rukia Dec 06, 2006 the clues were well written but there were a few too many. they did add to the difficulty but it was still very easy for me. locomom Dec 07, 2006 Great teaser...it took me 3 starts to finally get it right!! natureluver Dec 11, 2006 very hard Gr8 job though!!! dragonlove Dec 12, 2006 Not too hard - clues worked well to the answer. The story was hillarious and great fun! acobra Dec 19, 2006 I liked the story but couldn't figure out the point of Clue 10, as it can be deduced from Clue 1. Besides that great puzzle! acobra Dec 19, 2006 Ok I realized my mistake in my comment... Using the Grid Solver tells you the distances but without it you need clue 10 to figure them out. My mistake! Cat-Lady Dec 20, 2006 Blew it both times 2nd time my only mistake was mixing up the closet and the wine Great job! Fun AND Hard MrViper Dec 26, 2006 I started this one, but the weird alien names and that bizzare distance scale thing kept confusing the heck outta me! Johnnyuu Jan 12, 2007 Good puzzle. Got it first try! (even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then!) gracieboo Aug 21, 2007 I guess I did okay (switched Nuju's home w/Martina's - got everything else correct) but now my head hurts! OUCH!!! J-Five Jun 03, 2012 Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!!!! Obilio Mar 30, 2013 Fun and creative, with a very cute story! Thanks for your work.
