Logic Grid Puzzle!

Postby Top1 » Tue May 03, 2016 1:44 am UTC

If Einstein's Riddle couldn't solve by 98% of the world's population than this puzzle can't be solved by 99% of the population.

There are 8 teams in a competition. Each team has 2 players
and a team name. They are Ranked from 1 to 8 and they have
a position in the draw from 1 to 8. Each team is assigned a color.
Furthermore each team has exactly one strength which is different from every
other team and one weakness which is also different from
every other team and each team's strength is the weakness of
one of the other team and each team's weakness is the strength of
one of the other team.

We also know following facts about them:

* David and his partner are assigned the color green.
* Justin and his partner Jenn belong to Team Lions, are assigned the color white.
* Jess and her partner kim's weakness is "setting nils".
* Warriors are ranked 7th.
* The team whose ranked eighth have weakness "Blind Nils".
* Sarah and her partner belong to team Tigers, are ranked 4th and their position in the draw is 5th.
* Mike and his partner's weakness is Team Bulls strength.
* One team's strength is "Blind Nils" and weakness "bidding".
* Matt and his partner assigned the color pink and their strength is "bidding".
* The team whose ranked 3rd are positioned 7th in the draw.
* Rob and his partner are assigned the color yellow and their weakness is "nilling".
* Julie and her partner Lexi are ranked 6th.
* Simon and his partner belong to Team Eagles, are ranked first.
* Team Dolphins are ranked 5th whose strength is "debagging".
* Team Cobras are ranked 2nd and their weekness is "setting Bn".
* "setting bids" is strength of the team who is positioned eighth in the draw and assigned the color red.
* Joe and his partner belong to Team Titans are assigned the color blue.
* Dan and his partner strength is "setting Bn" and are positioned 4th in the draw.
* Mike and his partner are positioned 2nd in the draw and their strength is "setting nils".
* "nilling" is strength of a team positioned 3rd in the draw.
* The team whose position in the draw is 1st, are assigned the color violet.
* Nick and his Partner Emily assigned the color brown.
* "bagging" is weakness of a team positioned 6th in the draw.

whose strength is "bagging" and whose weakness is "debagging"?

can you find out, who belong to which team, their rank , their position in the draw, their assigned color, their strength and weakness?

Even Google can't solve this!!!!!! but it has a solution!!! ...
Bring it on!!! lets see if any genius can solve this?
Enjoy!!!

Does anything of interest happen in this puzzle? All of the information given is positive, so it just sounds like setting out all of the various fragments, and then seeing which ones are forced to connect to which other ones. It'll be an exercise in tedium given the number of types and volume of information, but not one that'll require significant ingenuity.

Thanks, skeptical scientist, for knowing symbols and giving them to me.

Indeed.

Took me about 1½ hours to solve; takes a while to enter the different relations into a spreadsheet and slowly eliminate the possibilities. Not particularly challenging, though.

Here's the solution.
