    Za-za is older than Fifi, but younger than Juan.
    Fifi is older than Jorjio and Maccio.
    Maccio is younger than both Carlos and Jorjio.
    Juan is older than both Fifi and Macci, but younger than Carlos.

    Who is the oldest and who is the youngest?

    Carlos is the oldest and Maccio is the youngest. The order (from oldest to youngest) is:
    Carlos, Juan, Za-za, Fifi, Jorjio, Maccio.

    Where are you getting all these puzzles? If you're making them up, you certainly have a fertile imagination. Perhaps we should have a league table for 'most prolific puzzle-setter'.

    On second thoughts, that'd only encourage spam puzzles, like the Most Active Poster table.

    I am getting them from some books that I have had since I was a kid.
    Do I still get a prize?

    It's just that the forum looked stale and I figured that I would liven it up a bit.
