Where is the gold?


  • One ruler of Travian Lands was so impressed by the Hero Adventures he had read a while ago in an old book, that it gave him an idea. “I really need such people in my service” – he thought. – “Why not create some similar tasks so that I can find the smartest people from among my subjects and bring them to my side?”.
    And so, he invented the first puzzle and sent a herald to announce it everywhere.



    Red CHEST Blue CHEST Green CHEST
    The gold is not in the blue chest. The gold is not in this chest. The gold is in this chest.




    There are 3 chests here. 2 of them are empty, and one contains gold which I am willing to give away to the smartest and luckiest of my subjects. At least one of the statements on those chests is true, and at least one of those statements is false. Where is the gold?

  • The gold is in the RED chest.


    That is because the puzzle says that at least 1 statement is true and at least 1 statement is false.


    If gold is in the GREEN chest.


    The gold is not in the blue chest. -> True
    The gold is not in this chest. -> True
    The gold is in this chest. -> True


    If gold is in the BLUE chest.


    The gold is not in the blue chest. -> False
    The gold is not in this chest. -> False
    The gold is in this chest. -> False


    If the gold is in the RED chest.


    The gold is not in the blue chest. -> True
    The gold is not in this chest. -> True
    The gold is in this chest. -> False

  • The gold is in the RED chest
    Development:
    If the third statement is true, so must be the other two. Since there can t be three true answers, third statement is FALSE.
    That leave us with red and blue chests.
    If the first statement is False, the gold is in the blue, second statement would be false, and so was the third. Three false answers
    Now, if the first statement is true, so it´s the second ( they are tied one to the other) in that case, gold would be in red chest ( none here is preventing from 2 statements to be true)

  • The red and blue chests have the same statement, both implying that it is not in the blue chest. So they must either both be true or both be false.


    The green chest's statement cannot be true. If it were true, then the other two statements would also be true (and there must be at least one false statement). So it has to be false. The gold cannot be in the green chest.


    Since there is at least one true and one false statement, and red's statement equals blue's statement, and green must be false, then both the red and blue statements are true. The gold cannot be in the blue chest.


    Since it cannot be either green or blue, the gold must be in the red chest.
