This puzzle was supposedly created by the Genius
himself, Albert Einstein. According to the
legend of the Einstein
Puzzle, Dr. Einstein believed only 2% of the world's

I am a dance instructor by
profession. I own a dance studio in
Houston, Texas, known as SSQQ (slow slow
quick quick). Back in 1998, Donna
Ruth, one of my
dance instructors, emailed me the Einstein Puzzle.
I had a great time solving it. Just a few months after I first solved the
the SSQQ website came on board the Internet.
Back in the early days of the SSQQ
website, I was always looking to add something
interesting as a way to
get people to visit. So in
January 1999, I posted the
Einstein Puzzle to
the SSQQ Web Site. Then I challenged
dance studio members to solve it.
My dance students said they enjoyed solving the
very much. Several people asked for
more puzzles. I filed that information
away in the back of my mind. About two

Logic Puzzles as a regular feature to the
Over a period of four
years, I published the 40 different logic
puzzles listed above.
puzzles were easy
and some were very hard. I can promise
you one thing - I solved every one of them
before I posted them. In addition,
four people from my studio - Ann Faget,
Susan Arevalo, Ritesh Laud, and Anita Leung
- solved practically every one of them as
well. They were my Logic Puzzle
The five of us can guarantee that every one of these
puzzles can be solved based on the clues
offered on my web site.
You have our word
of honor on that!!
