Peegue's Puzzle Page
Welcome to Peegue's Puzzle Page. Logic Puzzles, Mazes, and more... Peegue is always on the look-out for interesting puzzles for you to ponder and solve.
Here are two classic logic puzzles (as they would be told in Wonderland) for this edition's brain twisters:
Logic Puzzle #1
Three Stinkers and three Thwarts want to cross a river using a boat that holds at most two of them at a time. The Stinkers are a little nervous about the Thwarts, and so the Stinkers should never be outnumbered by Thwarts on either shore. Find a way for all six to safely cross the river. (Both Stinkers and Thwarts are able to handle the boat - alone, if necessary - but the boat cannot make the trip while empty).
Logic Puzzle #2
Z-Bots can only be programmed to either always lie or always tell the truth. It is impossible to tell which is which by looking at them.
A Stinker meets three Z-Bots, named A-Bit, B-Bit, and C-Bit.
"Do you lie, or do you always tell the truth?", the Stinker asks A-Bit.
"Bleep Bloop", comes the response.
"What did he say?", the Stinker asks B-Bit and C-Bit.
"H-E... S-A-I-D... H-E... A-L-W-A-Y-S... T-E-L-L-S... T-R-U-T-H.", says B-Bit.
"H-E... S-A-I-D... H-E... A-L-W-A-Y-S... T-E-L-L-S... L-I-E-S.", says C-Bit.
We will never know what A-Bit said, but we can tell if B-Bit or C-Bit tell the truth or tell lies. Can you?
These puzzles might take some time to work out, so don't give up too easily. Make time on a Sunday morning, grab a cup of tea or coffee, put your thinking cap on, and let the puzzles percolate in your mind.
