Lion and Unicorn I. - Back to the Logic Problems
Alice came across a lion and a unicorn in a forest of forgetfulness. Those two are strange beings. The lion lies every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the other days he speaks the truth. The unicorn lies on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, however the other days of the week he speaks the truth.
Lion: Yesterday I was lying.
Unicorn: So was I.
Which day did they say that?


Spoiler for Solution



NO, IT WAS ON A THURSDAY BECAUSE THE LION WAS TELLING THE TRUTH AND THE UNICORN WAS LYING.

Unicorn is not telling the thruth. It's his first day of lying.

The Answer is just thursday. I developed a program based in pascal that test every day . I also drew a chart after read one of the answers and my program simulate the generation of the chart and the process of the comparison of the result in order to determine what is the answer.

This is my first posting and my answer straight away was thursday, however, I have read through all the other postings and then reread the puzzle only to understand why there were other answers.

The Lion and the Unicorn meet in the forest of forgetfulness so there is alot they could forget: the day, what they said yesterday, what day they lie etc...

Also there are a few postings that imply that there are other days that the Lion and Unicorn could have said what they said. The puzzle doesn't specifically say that on the days they lie, they could also tell the truth.

So is there more to this puzzle?

My answers:

Reading it once - Thursday

Forest of Forgetfulness - any day

If on the days that they lie, they could also tell the truth - Tuesday through to Saturday

If on the days that they lie, they only lie - Thursday

The fact that they are both Male - any day :)

One last note, I would not want to be Alice!

It must be Thursday for it is the only day connecting the beginning of one way of life and the end of another, the Lion speaking truth and the Unicorn speaking Lies.

Sunday can't work for both of them must tell the truth.

This is completely ridiculous, people - it could be any day between Tuesday and Saturday.
Let me break it down for you.

Monday - impossible, the unicorn also told the truth on Sunday and can't lie about it.
Tuesday - possible if the lion is telling the truth and the unicorn is lying.
Wednesday - possible if lion=LIE and uni=TRUTH
Thursday - possible if lion=TRUTH and uni=LIE
Friday - possible if lion=LIE and uni=TRUTH
Saturday - possible if lion=TRUTH and uni=LIE
Sunday - impossible because today they are both telling the truth.

Agree?



No actually, the Lion can't tell the truth on Mon/Tues/and Wed. So Tues and Wed aren't options. And the Lion is honest Thur - Sun, so he couldn't have honestly said he lied the day before Fri/Sat/& Sun. Thur is the only option
