Which Game? (Posted on 2002-12-31) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Five of your relatives are having a Sunday Football party. You have to decide which one you are going to by solving the problem of how they are related to you, what snacks they are serving, and what team they are cheering for.

Their names are Pat, Chris, PJ, Stacey, and Bobbi. They are your Cousin, Uncle, Mother, Brother, or Sister. They serve Popcorn, Chips, Carrot Sticks, Pizza, or Cookies. They cheer for the Broncos, Raiders, Packers, Cowboys, or Dolphins.

    Neither Chris nor Stacey serves chips (which are served while watching the Broncos).

    The cookies are not served while watching the Packers or Raiders. Pat isn’t your brother (your brother doesn’t serve cookies or pizza.)

    PJ is your cousin (and doesn’t serve cookies or carrot sticks) who watches the Dolphins.

    Your sister doesn’t watch the Broncos or the Packers; and the Packers fan doesn’t serve carrot sticks. Chris is not your brother.

    When you go to Bobbi’s house, pizza is served, but Bobbi is not your uncle.

I don't know how everybody else aproach these type of problems, but I used a nifty little grid, that compares all attributes with all other attributes. It works quite well. This is what popped out of it:

Uncle Pat chips Broncos
Sister Chris Cookies Cowboys
Cousin PJ Popcorn Dolphins
Brother Stacey Carrots Raiders
Mother Bobbi Pizza Packers
