# Blellow the Alien #2

Logic-Grid
Logic Grid puzzles come with a handy interactive grid that will help you solve the puzzle based on the given clues.

Blellow is back with another crisis! He hosted a talent show for himself and 4 of his friends. He hired judges to judge the show, but only one of them showed up. The judge wrote down lots of details about the show, but wrote them in a language no one else at the show knew! You are studying aliens on a mission from Earth, and have been studying the exact language the judge wrote the details in, but cannot speak it fluently. You are able to read parts of the details, but not all of it. Help Blellow get his show wrapped up by figuring out which alien came in which place, how many fingers per arm they have, what their skin color is, and how many arms they have. Good Luck!

Names: Blellow, Qluxeh, Xrek, Zeneq, and Wsalhm

it was alittle cnofusing but fun once you think about it

Awesome! I got it even though the "total" number of fingers and arms did me in the first time I tried it. Thanks for a super teaser!!!

Great one!! The necessity to use math to complete the clues made this one extra fun.

That was terrific; I'm really liking these Blellow the Alien logic grids! You did a great job mixing in the math problems. Keep it up, looking forward to the next one!

This was was a little easier than the first one which took me a while, but still very well done. I like the math incorportated into the clues and that there were few obvious answers.

i need more practice or more patience....but am looking forward to trying another...

yay!

too difficult for me, but fun trying to solve it. was going to cheat and get the first answer to help me out and I already had Blellow in the wrond place.... oh well, guess i need to practice more.

Thanks for the teaser

Thanks for the teaser

this is only the second on, although, I am proud to announce thet a 3rd blellow is coming!!!!

Why don't you leave the announcements up to me, jj?

Thanks for all of the comments, and yes, a 3rd and 4th are being made currently.

According to Statement #4. The alien with 10 total fingers came 2 places after Blellow.

If Blellow came in 1st place then 10 fingers should have come in 3rd.

Wsalhm came in 2nd place, has 7 arms, is pink, and has 10 fingers. Not trying to be negative, but the math didn't add up

If Blellow came in 1st place then 10 fingers should have come in 3rd.

Wsalhm came in 2nd place, has 7 arms, is pink, and has 10 fingers. Not trying to be negative, but the math didn't add up

So Blellow came in 1st and the 3rd place alien had 10 TOTAL fingers. 2 arms and 5 fingers on each arm (2x5=10).

Tricky tricky!! LOL I like it.

irishego - Yes, VERY tricky, I was about ready to punch the screen after a minute because it kept tripping me up. Had to restart the grid window twice because of it.

it's too late for me to be doing these hard ones! Great job!!!

Great!

Great! I loved counting arms and fingers! I'll go check your other teasers!

This puzzle took me a very long time to get. Well designed, and must be read very carefully. Deserves one of the highest ratings possible. Great job.

Another awesome teaser! This one was tricky and the "10 total fingers" almost tripped me up, but I caught it just in time. Just wanted to add that clue #6 is completely unnecessary as I already knew everything in that clue by the time I got to it. I look forward to seeing Blellow again.

Really enjoyed this challenge. Like others, I didn't see the word TOTAL and was left with an impossible grid my first time through. (note to self: read all of the words) Looking forward to more.

I completely messed it up the first time! I wasn't paying attention to the TOTAL numbers of fingers.. man... Didn't look at the answer though, just looked at the first 2 comments...gonna try it again now

The author must been pretty creative, when can I meet these guys, lol

Blellow was green in the first puzzle, but now he is orange? I am glad I didn't automatically fill in chartreuse and left it open to discover that he is now orange.

Winsor, Blellow's SHIP was green in the first puzzle. His skin colour wasn't mentioned then.

You should make a video of this!!!

WOW, tricky indeed! Thanks for making this, really, one's this challenging but articulate are very rare!

Ingenious puzzle, but I'm frustrated! I've got all the fingers, arms and colours right, but I can't work out whether 2nd and 4th places should go to Zeneq or Wsahlm, I must be missing something.

You explained in the first how Blellow got his name, but with the others, do you just drop a handful of scrabble tiles and right down the result?
