Variation of "the hardest logic puzzle"

I've got a bit of an interesting variation to The Hardest Logic Puzzle EVER"

(one of a few potential varitions I have hought about)

The differences are

- You have a new Chief (red) who won't answer any question (he can speak but he won't speak to you so you can't ask him)

- one of the chiefs always answers "Yes" (in their own language of course) regardless of what the question is!

- you goal is to find this chief ONLY. (he may be the red chief he may not be)

so assuming all the other rules are the same (check the link if you need to:D)

find 3 question you can ask.big_smile

Re: Variation of "the hardest logic puzzle"

I took a look at the link you posted - looks very interesting - before I look at your variation I'd better start with the original version!
So I'm going to start thinking about that right away. I don't know how long that will take me - we'll see, I'm certainly not going to spoil my fun by looking at what others have done to solve it... until I admit some sort of defeat that is.


It's the activity of the intelligence above all that gives charm to existence.
