Cornered In ChoresvilleLogic Grid puzzles come with a handy interactive grid that will help you solve the puzzle based on the given clues.
On a spring day in Choresville, five acquaintances, all relatively new in town, had specific objectives in mind concerning particular objects. Temporarily useful knowledge of these errands and chores in various parts of town may be acquired by carefully following the following carefully-formed clues.
PEOPLE: men: Sal Vaged, Tim Id, Ben A. Brink
women: Ona Verge, Atta Edge
OBJECTS: money, lunch, coat, water pipe, ring
BUSINESSES: Big Piggy Bank, May Bee Beauty Salon, Flat Facets Diamonds, Genuine Hardware, Sole Shoe Repair
BUILDINGS: Bent Brick, Vertical Towers, Stacked Stories, Cloud Tickler, Lofty Lights
STREETS: Pothole Parkway, Famed Feet Walkway, Stoned Street, New Avenue, Noble Bull Boulevard
1. As he was walking down Stoned Street, on his way around the corner to Big Piggy Bank to secure his newly-purchased engagement ring into his safety-deposit box, Sal Vaged met Atta Edge just coming out of Genuine Hardware, where she had delivered a box lunch to her husband.
2. Sal asked Atta if she had seen his fiancee, and she said that, yes, Ona Verge had been called to replace a broken water pipe at the May Bee Beauty Salon in the Stacked Stories Building.
3. Ben A. Brink wanted to watch an air show from the Cloud Tickler Building on Pothole Parkway, which would have afforded a good view, but he had to go instead to Flat Facets Diamonds, a block over on Famed Feet Walkway, to pick up his coat that he had left at an office party.
4. In the meantime, Ona finally remembered that the Stacked Stories Building is on Noble Bull Boulevard, and it's the Bent Brick Building that's on Famed Feet Walkway.
5. Tim Id's memory was not so clear; he had to go collect the money for the air show tickets from the owner of the Sole Shoe Repair; and he couldn't remember whether it is the Bent Brick Building or the Vertical Towers Building, but he knew that it is on New Avenue.
