Games help pls: oct 2002 logic games last one q 20-24
« on: June 13, 2004, 11:58:44 AM »
' Musicians perform each of exactly five pieces- Nexus, Onyx, Syncrhony, Tailwind, and Virtual- once, and one at a time; the pieces are performed successively (though not necessarily in that order). Each piece is performed with exactly two instruments: Nexus with fiddle and lute, Onyx with harp and mandolin, Synchrony with guitar and harp, Tailwind with fiddle and guitar, and Virtual with lute and mandolin. The following conditions must apply:

Each piece shares one instrument with the piece performed immediately before it or after it (or both)

Either Nexus or Tailwind is performed second.'

How would you set this game up?

Nfl
Ohm
Sgh
Tfg
Vlm

Nfl or Tfg goes 2nd

if one of those goes second, then the other either goes 1st 3rd.

if N goes second, then the first 3 are VNT, not in that order.  and you know that O and S are 4th adn 5th.
if T goes 2nd, then the first 3 ard STN, not particularly in that order either.  and you know that V and O are 4th and 5th.

if im understanding this correctly, this is a fairly straightforward game...

hope this helps.

thanks alot.

ok, this is how i did it before your post:

i grouped it under the shared instruments

and played some sequencing outlines out

eg.) flute: N, T

lute:N, V

etc etc.

if you think about it, there is only 4 logical sequences to this:

VNTSO
TNVOS
STNVO
NTSOV

I don't think there are only four solutions. What about, for example, ( N, T, V, O, S )?

The rules say that each piece shares one instrument with the piece performed immediately before or after it (or both).

So, ( N, T, V, O, S ) would have the instruments (FL, FG, LM, HM, HG). Though the second and third pieces performed do not share an instrument in common, the third and fourth, along with the fourth and fifth, share an instrument. There are many more than four possibilities, though the four listed serve as a good starting point to tackle the game.
