Question Mark is the host of a new game show called "Radical Rush". It is a game of 4 rounds. A logic round, a rebus round, a mathematics round and a final face-off. One player is eliminated after each round, with the last player left being the winner. Each player is color-coded. Now you must work out the full names of the contestants, the age of the contestants, their color-code and which round they were eliminated in (and who won).

First names: David, Joanne, Richard, Xavier, Yvette
Last names: Bridge, Hall, Rade, Richburgh, Sands
Ages: 22, 24, 26, 29, 33
Color-codes: Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange
Round Eliminated: Logic, Rebus, Maths, Face-off, Winner

Round 1 (LOGIC): This round was straight forward for Xavier, Miss Bridge and the player aged 29. The green player and the player aged 26 did not find this round as easy. It was a close call but in the end, the yellow player was eliminated.

Round 2 (REBUS): This round was slightly harder, however it was a walk in the park for Richard, who came in first place for this round. Yvette, Mr Rade and the red player did not find this round as easy. However, after she realised what she was doing wrong, The 22-year-old quickly took second place. Now it was just up to Xavier and the 29-year-old, however it was all over for Mr Rade.

Round 3 (MATHEMATICS): Once again, the difficulty level increases as the remaining three players try their math skills. No-one seemed to do particularly well here. The first place finisher was Miss Bridge. The battle for a spot in the Face-off was between Xavier and the green player. He put everything he knew into this round, however it wasn't enough to save Mr Hall, our unfortunate 33-year-old.

Face-off: Two players remain with the same goal: to become the very first winner of "Radical Rush". The 22-year-old and Mr Richburgh must race each-other in a maze. Whoever reaches the end first, wins the game. It was a race too close to call, however the red player was fast enough to steal victory from the very unfortunate orange player.

Nice. The fact that a player was in a later round was an additional clue. :D :wink:

Probably my favorite one ever. I mixed up a couple of clues, so I got the puzzle wrong, but it was so fun working it out. GREAT JOB.

Great one! Had to do it twice, but enjoyed every minute. Excellent clues, and I like the way one can jump ahead for clues (colors, etc) and go back to eliminate. Thanks!

I really had fun doing this one, and somehow, I knew innately that...(I'm now rephrasing so that I don't spoil the answer.) I knew innately who won.

Really fun! Clever clue set up as well :) Thanks for your work!

Nice twist with the clues. After messing it up going in the given order, I found it much easier to solve the clues in reverse order.

Great idea, very fun!

I enjoyed this a lot; thanks for a neat, hard but not frustratingly so puzzle, just the way I like them.

:D Clearly one of my favorites so far! I also love how you added the reasoning logic in the solution.

Posted by THElogicalRESON08/12/17
I solved it correctly and this is definitely one of my favorite puzzles ever. The wording makes sense.
