I just solved this on a piece of paper and I got the Germans owning the fish too!

So glad because I was about the start over like 5 times.

Please post another one!

Wait! I just found one! I've worked it out and I'll post the answer on Wednesday (the 6th).

Ships

There are 5 ships in a port.

   1. The Greek ship leaves at six and carries coffee.
   2. The ship in the middle has a black chimney.
   3. The English ship leaves at nine.
   4. The French ship with a blue chimney is to the left of a ship that carries coffee.
   5. To the right of the ship carrying cocoa is a ship going to Marseille.
   6. The Brazilian ship is heading for Manila.
   7. Next to the ship carrying rice is a ship with a green chimney.
   8. A ship going to Genoa leaves at five.
   9. The Spanish ship leaves at seven and is to the right of the ship going to Marseille.
  10. The ship with a red chimney goes to Hamburg.
  11. Next to the ship leaving at seven is a ship with a white chimney.
  12. The ship on the border carries corn.
  13. The ship with a black chimney leaves at eight.
  14. The ship carrying corn is anchored next to the ship carrying rice.
  15. The ship to Hamburg leaves at six.

Which ship goes to Port Said? Which ship carries tea?

Okay, here are the five ships from left to right.  So as not to spoil it for others, I've set my type to a colour that will blend well with the background.  Drag your cursor over the answers below and highlight the text to see the answers:


The French ship with the blue chimney leaves at five carrying tea to Genoa.
The Greek ship with the red chimney leaves at six carrying coffee to Hamburg.
The Brazilian ship with the black chimney leaves at eight carrying cocoa to Manila.
The English ship with the white chimney leaves at nine carrying rice to Marseille.
The Spanish ship with the green chimney leaves at seven carrying corn to Port Said.

Got the same results as TT. This was much easier than the Einstein puzzle. But I shouldn't have played this, it didn't have a Portuguese ship  :x

Well, at least, Pinkmug, there was a lusophone ship. :)

That's exactly right Tandoori! Anyone who wants the right answer just highlight that text. But try solving it first it's really fun!
