Re: Can somebody help me on Who Lives in the City of Einstein Puzzle?Thanks, Bob. Amazed at your three solutions. I did not have your solution 1 and 2. I just had your solution 3 but I thought in solution 3, the upper right 4 cells can be reversed, that is, Amy + Eastenders can be the 5th and Eilish + Neighbors to the 4th. Then there would be 4 solutions. As a novice, I thought socalled Einstein Puzzles are supposed to have only "one" solution like Sudoku. It seems I was wrong, then. #5 20120521 01:27:55
Re: Can somebody help me on Who Lives in the City of Einstein Puzzle?Yes,Einstein puzzles should have only one solution,but I guess MIF missed the others or just didn't check.

Re: Can somebody help me on Who Lives in the City of Einstein Puzzle?But does it matter if there is more than one solution? In life that can happen. I think it is the thinking that matters.

Re: Can somebody help me on Who Lives in the City of Einstein Puzzle?If there are more solutions they should be added to the ons MIF posted. Otherwise,someone might think that his solution is incorrect.
