Hey guys, here's another LG game I made up. It's the second one I posted on here. Try it. Let me know if there are any flaws in the game. Try doing the two questions in 3 minutes.

Scheduling Game 2

Situation:

GHXJKLM are being scheduled for work shifts for 6 consecutive work days, Monday through Saturday. There is one worker per day. No one works more than one day. The following further restricts scheduling:

1. G is scheduled the day before H
2. If X works Wednesday, J works Friday.
3. K can only work Monday or Saturday.
4. If J works Friday or X does not work Wednesday, then L works Thursday and M does not work at all.
5. X works on earlier day than L or M

Questions:
1. The placement of which variable on Monday would determine the order of the schedule?
A) X B) H C) G D) L E) K

2. If J works Friday, which is accurate/complete list of days any of which H can work?

A) Wednesday
B) Tuesday, Wednesday
C) Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
D) Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
E) Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday

I don't think so. G on Monday would force H in Tues and K on Sat, but J, L, and M are free to go anywhere Wed, Thurs, and Friday.

You sure about that? :lol:

You have 7 workers and only 6 days, what happens to that extra worker?

Maybe the correct rule for me to use is if J is on Fri and X not Weds then L on thurs and no a M at all.

Sorry but the game does not state that all workers need to be schedulded; so, it shouldn't be an issue.
