Heavy Ogre.

Hopefully nobody has solved by the time I can actually look at this closely.

Also, no chance I solve it. I'm just not that smart.

re: A riddle
Your answer to the Riddle is incorrect.

You’re on the right track, but the information you provided was close, but not correct

re: A riddle
That is correct. just curious, what was your method to solving it?

Also, you can start a new riddle with the 2 ancient when you are ready...but be warned, people on this site get easily butthurt if you wait too long. Just make sure you have the two rules word for word....

1) quality guesses receive a hint
2) the person that solves has to create the next riddle

re: A riddle
Woot.

what was your method to solving it


As evidenced by the hour of my submission, this is the only correct method. (In actual fact, my 3 month old woke me up and couldn't get back to sleep.)

I started out with the old school logic puzzle layout:


But after going through the clues for a bit, it started to make more sense to just make a layout kind of like I had in my solution. 5 rows, columns for all the other values. plug in the known quantities, then start to shuffle some ideas around and see what would work. I don't have my sequence of what exactly I got in what order, but your clue to the prior poster that they were close led me to believe that once I got the teams in that order but I had different "secondary values" that I was probably on the right track. UGA + Georgia + Red certainly made it a little on the easier side.

re: A riddle
Well done. It was definitely a logic puzzle. I did those growing up. Father gave me a book of them and paid me $.25/$.50/$1 depending on their difficulty.
