Game setup

Hi! Could you please provide a game set-up with deductions for this game? Thank you!

Hi @DavidW,

Thanks for the question! This seems to be a linear game, with six total slots: W T F, each having a morning and afternoon. Our players are J, K, L, N, O, and R.

We know that K and R are on the same day, and there’s one assistant per slot. We note this to the side.

L and O, on the other hand, cannot be on the same day. But now we know that the days will be some kind of combo of the following three people:

J/N + L
N/J + O

though we don’t know who’s in the morning vs afternoon yet. Now we’re told that N is in the afternoon, so at least one of L and O are in the morning.

Finally, we’re told that J must be before O, which means that J and O cannot be on the same day. That means N and O are on the same day, and J and L are on the same day. Now, knowing this, there are basically two possibilities (WTF order on horizontal axis) (you could split possibility two into two possibilities if you wanted):

Possibility 1: NO on Thursday
Morn: J/L, O, R/K
Afternoon: L/J, N, R/K

Possibility two: NO on Friday
Morn: JL block / KR block, KR block / JL block, O
Afternoon: LJ block / RK block, RK block / LJ block, N

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any further questions that you might have.
