A quick google search found no such rule. If it can be solved on paper, it can also be solved mentally, by just taking longer and taking more energy.

I solved it with pen and paper a while back, just can't do it in my head... too much details to look out for.

Huk, you're being a jerk right there, this einstein puzzle is like a sudoku, but with 'facts' instead of numbers, go solve a sudoku without writing any numbers down. It's just too much to be bothered with.

I fail to see how I'm a jerk for trying to solve a puzzle using a pen and paper. Some cheating, huh.

Back in the day when I went to competitions and Olympiads solving this kind of problems I always was allowed that. But oh well, you guys get the point better.

Nono, it was something about einstein saying that only 2% of the people in the world can solve it mentally or something like that. Anything can be solved once you lay it out.

I don't even know how to respond to this post. I'm not in a confrontational mood. I shall solve Einstein's riddle by pen and paper, and keep my answer to myself.

The first Quarter was made in a United States Mint.
The second Quarter was made by counterfeiters and has a high content of tin.

I was unable to solve the dot puzzle due to lack of a pencil and paper. Pencils and paper have become non-existent due to advances in technology.

Einstein......I don't take dares from dead people, and all those people should worry about their smoking and drinking instead of a damn fish!

you were being a jerk for saying

"If it can be solved on paper, it can also be solved mentally, by just taking longer and taking more energy."

if you haven't solved it yet with pen and paper, try doing it without, saying it just takes more time and energy is so so so so so so so so so so so bad

there comes a point at some time where you don't feel the need to prove yourself on stuff that doesn't even matter.

Easy peasy one:
'there was a recluse who never left his home, The only time anyone ever visited him was to drop off food and supplies, but they never went into his home. One stormy winter night, during an icey gale, he had a nervous breakdown, went upstairs, and turned off all the lights before going to bed. The next morning he was responsible for hundreds of deaths, how?

You just have to figure out the right order of the houses and it will get easier, I think.

Here goes from left to right.

Green house =>white house=> red house<=blue house<=yellow house. This is my guess, need moar sleep before I can go further.

Brit drinks milk // lives in red house // smokes blend.

German smokes prince// lives in white house// keeps cats.

Swede drinks beer // have dogs // smokes blue master //

Norwegian smokes dunhill // lives in the first (yellow) house

Dane drinks tea // rears birds // smokes pall mall

UPDATE: If the Norewgian lives in the first house, and lives next to the blue house who keeps horse, then the guy who smokes blend that also drinks milk & lives in the center couldn't be living next to same house with horse and cats at the same time, therefore the white house has cats

As far as I could get. I'll continue when I wake up, been 24 hours alrdy. >_>
