If you're a regular visitor here, then you probably love casual games and puzzles as much as we do. Most of the games featured here are browser-based, but once or twice we've featured a puzzle or two that require the old-fashioned method of pencil and paper. The logic puzzles from Coudal Partners are what I'm referring to, and they've just published another one, called Let's Do Lunch, for the Thanksgiving (US) holiday.
The Set Up: Four movie actors are in a cafe, sitting together at a square table, like the one shown here with the seats numbered. They are discussing their most recent projects while waiting for their salads. Each has just returned from a different location where he or she was shooting a different type of film, one of which is a costume drama.
From the information provided can you figure out where each person sat, his or her full name, the location he or she had just returned from, and the type of movie each had shot?
There is, of course, a contest associated with this puzzle and fabulous prizes will be given away to 6 lucky winners, the top prize being an authentic Chicago deep-dish pizza. Visit the puzzle page for details.
If you love this type of logic puzzle, be sure to check out Puzzlers Paradise, a website filled with logic puzzles just like this that you can print out, or use an integrated Flash interface for solving them. Good stuff. =)
Best wishes, from all of us here at JIG, for a happy and safe holiday.
