Logic Problem #1 – HHA Halloween Party


Tom Nook had acquired a piece of land for him and four other crew members to host a Halloween Party. Three of the event runners (Tom Nook, Digby, and Lyle) are male, and the other two (Isabelle and Lottie) are female. The decorator of the Halloween Party was Andrea. While decorating for the party, Andrea built five different houses for Halloween activities with different colors for the walls (one of them was red). The event runners have their own activities to run (including the carnival games), with one activity per house. Alongside for the activities, Andrea had to put up decorations (such as the Halloween lights) the event runners suggested, both inside and outside the houses. From the information provided, can you find out which event runner suggested which decoration and ran what activity in which colored house?


Category A – Event Runners:

  • Tom Nook
  • Isabelle
  • Digby
  • Lyle
  • Lottie

Category B – Suggested Decorations:

  • Colored Jack-o-Lanterns
  • Skull Balloons
  • Halloween Lights
  • Inflatable bats and spiders
  • Gravestones and holographic ghosts

Category C – Activities:

  • Dining
  • Story Telling
  • Pumpkin Carving Contest
  • Carnival Games
  • Halloween Craft Making

Category D – House color:

  • Orange
  • White
  • Black
  • Purple
  • Red


  • Clue #1 – The five event runners are Tom Nook, Lyle, the event runner who suggested both holographic ghosts and gravestones, the event runner in charge of the Pumpkin Carving Contest, and the event runner in the black house.
  • Clue #2 – Isabelle and Digby ran their activities in the orange house and white house, in some order.
  • Clue #3 – Neither Lottie nor the event runner that suggested Skull Balloons ran the Party Dining event.
  • Clue #4 – The event runner in charge of the Pumpkin Carving Contest suggested Colored Jack-o-Lanterns as decorations. The event runner in the white house (who suggested holographic ghosts and gravestones) is not in charge of the Party Dining event.
  • Clue #5 – The event runners that suggested Skull Balloons and Inflatable Bats and Spiders are operating the storytelling event and the event in the black house, in some order.
  • Clue #6 – The Storytelling event is not operated in the purple house. Isabelle (who isn’t in charge of the Halloween Craft event) suggested the holographic ghosts and gravestones as decorations.
