A Song of Ice and Fire Logic Puzzle Solution Go Back to A Song of Ice and Fire Logic Puzzle Step 01 The first clue in Ned’s box is easy enough, so enter Theon in C6 and Rickon in E5. Step 02 Based on Rickon’s clue, we know that Ned’s other three sons are in B2, C3 and D4. However, Theon’s clue tells us that column D does not contain a Stark. This can only mean that Jon Snow lies in D4 since he is a son of Eddard’s, but not officially a Stark. Step 03 Another easy one – Jon’s clue points directly to the whereabouts of Davos, B6 to be precise. Step 04 Davos’ clue is slightly trickier, but we learn from it that names in column B do not start with B. Going back to Rickon’s earlier clue about Ned’s boys, we can therefore place Bran in C3, and Robb in B2. Step 05 You can hazard a guess of the corner characters after reading Robb’s clue, but it is perhaps safer to use Bran’s information. If Drogo is in row 5, and if Jon’s clue tells us that Theon is surrounded by women (bar Davos), we know that Drogo cannot be in B5, C5 or D5. Therefore, Khal Drogo is in A5. Step 06 Catelyn’s only two siblings, Edmure and Lysa Tully, can be positioned in D2 and in D5 respectfully. This is again due to the fact that Theon sits adjacent to women only (again, bar Davos). Step 07 If you can figure out Edmure’s clue about E6 at this stage, that’s great! It’ll definitely be useful when it comes towards the end of the quiz. However, if that’s got you stumped, we can move on using Drogo’s clue to locate Catelyn as well. Rickon told us at the beginning that Catelyn is in column A. And because Robert and Renly Baratheon occupy A3 and A4 (not necessarily in that order), and A6 must contain a lord, or former lord, of Westeros (Robb’s clue), that can only mean that Catelyn is in A2. Step 08 Aha, Catelyn’s box reveals that Stannis is that mystery lord in A6. Step 09 Although we now know from Stannis that Arya and Sansa are in C5 and E3, we cannot know for sure which Stark girl is in which box. So we must look elsewhere to locate some other characters – namely Jaime and Cersei. Bran told us early on that the Lannister twins are in row 4. Khal Drogo and Lysa Tully let us know that A4 and E4 are occupied by other characters, and Davos reminds us that Cersei cannot be in column C. This can therefore be concluded to be mean that Cersei is in B4, and Jaime is in C4 – soulmates from the womb, through birth and life, and even on Sporcle. Step 10 Remarkably, Cersei reveals to us exactly where the Stark girls are hidden. While Sansa is in E3 far away from her, Arya is in C5. Step 11 Arya ties row 2’s characters together with the morbid event she nearly attended herself, but it is Sansa’s equally glum hint that tells us that Renly Baratheon sits in A3, and Robert Baratheon in A4. Step 12 So the Baratheon brothers have some information for us, but we should backtrack a bit and catch some characters first. Bran’s clue told us that Daenerys is in the fifth row, so place her in B5. Step 13 Likewise, Cersei’s clue tells us that Joffrey is nearby, so place King Joff in B3. Step 14 Now here’s for some thinking. Renly’s clue tells us that the Melisandre is completely surrounded by men, and Arya’s clue tells us row 2 were all at the Red Wedding. This leaves B1, C1 and D1 as the only viable options for Melisandre to be in without being in the second row or neighboring another woman. This means that Varys has to be in the first row adjacent to Melisandre, since he was not at the Red Wedding either and can’t be in the second row. If Varys is there, he can’t be in E4. Lysa said it was either him or Littlefinger there. So enter Petyr Baelish in E4. Step 15 As a reward for figuring that out, Littlefinger simply points out that Tywin is in E1. Step 16 Now for more thinking. Dany’s clue tells us that Tyrion and Sam are in the same column. We know they can’t be in another column other than D, since neither were at the Red Wedding and column B has no space. Theon only neighbors women (aside from Davos), so we know that D6 can’t contain Tyrion or Sam. Robert Baratheon also stated that there are two Lannisters in the first row. We know this is Tyrion because those three boxes in the first row are some combination of Melisandre, Varys and Tyrion. So Tyrion has to be in D1, and Sam has to be in D3. Step 17 Tyrion reveals that Varys is in B1 and Melisandre is consequently in C1. Step 18 Brienne was not at the Red Wedding and she was not a lord at the beginning of the series. So she can only be in D6. Step 19 Edmure’s clue from long ago said that the corner character was his nephew. With all of Eddard Stark’s kids accounted for, and given that we know that corner characters were all lords the time the series began, we know this has to be Robert Arryn, Lord of the Eyrie and Protector of the Vale. Step 20 Bastard! Because we know Roose Bolton has one bastard son, E2 is Roose Bolton, and C2 must be Walder Frey. Step 21 And there you have it! A Song of Ice and Fire… it is known! By you!
