@freemo Other than manually, is there a mathematical way to calculate the "clues" for the "Einstein" or "5 houses" style puzzle?
@Absinthe calculate the clues or solve the puzzle? The clues are usually predefined for that riddle. You trying to create a varient of the riddle with different clues that works similarly?
@Absinthe Ahh so you want to be able to generate a clue set that results in a solvable puzzle of the type... its absolutely doable yea. I never did it myself but my instinct is that it would be little more than simple set theory.
I'd have to work it out but im thinking each clue would reduce the possible options of the final set until you have a one member set, which is the solution as well as ensures its solvable..
But yea the key in my mind would be to just work it as set theory I'd think.
With that said, I'd have to give it more thought to actually implement such a thing...
