    I used to love these when I was a kid. There's a famous Einstein one too. If this is like the Einstein one it's a bit of a trick question.

    This one's more complicated than the ones I used to do as a kid though. Those usually only had two dimensions, while this has more (nationality, color, game, cigar, drink).

    Well, it certainly looks impossible - you don't even tell us all the five colors? Is this missing a clue?

    Yes the 5 colors are known, infact so are all the Drinks and the types of nationally's and all the types of all of the cigarettes they all smoke and 4 of the games (1 of them not including chess) but of course one of the 5 people in the house play Chess thats the answer to the riddle so everything is there for you to figure this out.

    The colors btw are Blue,Yellow,Red,green and White

    It's not given that one of them plays Chess, actually. That idea was how Einstein's riddle worked.

    This is true but the idea is the find out which of the 5 nationally's play chess by finding out what colors the houses are what order the houses are placed in and which the owners of these 5 houses are smoking,drinking and which game they are playing one of the 5 people do play chess, so there is an answer to this riddle, Ive done it myself, its possible, only took me about 2 hours myself.

    you got it sam good for you, its just logical thinking, just like a puzzle put one piece together at a time and as you move closer it becomes clear

    Dang... I'm not the first, but I did get the right answer. That was a good puzzle. I loved those when i was little. That was definitely the hardest one I've ever done though.
