Puzzle

US Version

You're supposed to meet a friend at a restaurant, but you forgot which restaurant!

You know the restaurant is due north of the hero statue, due south of the goddess statue, and due east of the lion statue.

You have a map, but it doesn't show compass directions or statue names.

Which restaurant are you looking for?

US Version

There are no compass directions on the map, meaning the top of the map isn't necessarily north.

UK Version

You might be under the impression that the top of the map as it is currently oriented is north, but that's not necessarily so.

US Version

Since the restaurant you want is due north and due south of two statues, you should be able to draw a straight line that contains both statues and the restaurant.

UK Version

Since the restaurant is due south and due north of two different statues, you should be able to draw a straight line between two statues that also passes through the restaurant.

US Version

There's a bit of a "twist" to solving this puzzle.

Try slowly turning the map until you find an angle in which the direction of the statues and restaurant fits the requirements.

UK Version

There's a bit of a twist to solving this puzzle.

Try turning the map 45 degrees at a time until you find an orientation that works.

US Version

The statue on the bottom left is the goddess statue.

And the bottom-left corner of the map is the most northern section of the town map.

Can you work out the rest of it now?

UK Version

The statue in the bottom-left is the goddess statue, and the bottom-left corner of the map is the northernmost section of the town.

Can you work out the rest of it now?


Solution

Incorrect

US Version

Too bad!

Start by trying to figure out which statue is which.

UK Version

Too bad.

Think about what direction each statue might lie in relative to the other two.

Correct

Correct!

You're meeting at restaurant A.

Looking at the map from all angles, it becomes obvious that A is the only restaurant that fits all of the requirements.

UK Version

The meeting point is the restaurant marked A.

Looking at the map from all angles, it becomes obvious that restaurant A is the only one that fits all the requirements.
