Who owns the fish?

by Volker Weber

There are five houses in a row in different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The five owners drink a different drink, smoke a different brand of cigar and keep a different pet, one of which is a Walleye Pike.

  1. The Brit lives in the red house.
  2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
  3. The Dane drinks tea.
  4. The green house is on the left of the white house.
  5. The green house owner drinks coffee.
  6. The person who smokes Pall Malls keeps birds.
  7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhills.
  8. The man living in the house right in the center drinks milk.
  9. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
  10. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
  11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who smokes Dunhills.
  12. The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.
  13. The German smokes Princes.
  14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
  15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.

There's one really difficult thing in that riddle: what is "left of" (Point 4)? As Einstein told us everything is relative to the position of the observer. But you're right, Martin. Some years ago I visualised the whole thing with Excel - see at http://www.m-pax.de/wp-content/files/einstein.jpg

This is basically the equivalent of a game my mother was addicted to about 10 years ago called Sherlock. It seems you can still get the game, even for Pocket PC: Sherlock for Windows
