Nice logic puzzle, thanks!

Posted by puzzlelover on Oct 16, 2013

That was really easy! I got it with just the first four clues.

Same here, I also only needed the first 4 clues.

I love logic grid, so this one was easy but fun!

The first 4 clues tell you what time everyone caught their fish, but only rule out Alicia catching the tuna and Sam catching the mackerel. You really do need the last two clues to solve the puzzle, unless you are guessing.

You don't need the 5th hint.

easiest way (imho) is to go along with the clues: 6 - 2 - 1 - 4

3 & 5 are not necessary ... maybe for the hint-section?

Posted by dewtell on Jun 23, 2015

bloody-albatros is correct: clues 3 and 5 are redundant. Each of 1, 2, 4, and 6 are necessary to make the solution unique, even with 3 & 5 in the mix. Here are alternate solutions (in time order) if one of the 4 other clues is omitted:

Without clue #1: (Alicia, Bass; Sam, Mackerel; Harry, Tuna).
Without clue #2: (Harry, Bass; Alicia, Mackerel; Sam, Tuna).
Without clue #4: (Sam, Bass; Alicia, Mackerel; Harry, Tuna).
Without clue #6: (Alicia, Mackerel; Sam, Tuna; Harry, Bass).
