    If this story is true , I think old Uncle Albert was a tad bit on the arrogant side. Took under 15 minutes and I don’t believe people were any less logical back then.

      I get what you’re saying but try doing it without a computer….I’d imagine it would be an awful lot tougher if you were just given a pen and paper!!

    Ah, this took me back to the time I was still a kid…first time I saw it I teared the page to pieces because I couldn’t solve it. I saw it again two years later, only the paper was luckier that time. :D

    Knotaklu, it is said that as the years pass people become more intelligent, so you can’t be sure. Not everyone can solve it in our days, either. I do bet the percentage of the “solvers” is way more than 2% of the population, though.

    Lovely work on the flash, whoever made it!

    i like these games – logic puzzles. i wish they can make more of these here…..

  11. sssone says:

    You just have to be logical and work on what you know first, didn’t take too long, but I think it is easier when you have the moveable houses and tags.

  12. peter says:

    @hilman : I think the steps which leads to solution are a bit more complicated =), specially step 5. Show

  13. hilman says:
