Okay, this is my first attempt at a rulebreaker. It's based on a German kids' game called "department store" (there might of course be similar games in other languages/countries...) although this one's slightly different.

You're in a department store. You decide to which floor you want to go, if you want to turn left or right and what you want to buy there. So your "questions" should roughly look like this:
"I go to the second floor, turn right and buy a banana."
I'll tell you whether it's possible to buy the item there, and there will also be CA's.
Note that I'll use the British system, so you enter the store at the ground floor, not the first floor.


Doriana's Department Store opens now - have fun and don't spend too much money!

I go to the ground/first/second floor, turn right, and buy the ground/first/second floor. this is a tricky one! I'll say no to all, although it gave me some thinking to do.

As a HINT I'll tell you that it's easier and more useful to stick to actual objects.

I just noticed a BLOOOOPER
I go to the second floor, turn left and buy a figurine. yes should be no
I go to the second floor, turn left and buy a dragon. no should be yes
I go to the second floor, turn left and buy a man. no should be yes

To help you a bit, here's a list of things that you can't buy on the right side -
ground floor: nothing so far
first floor: banana, chair, computer, moving box, blanket, screen
second floor: figurine, band-aid, pot, cot, television/tv/TV, screen, soda, grain of sand, some sand, whipped cream.

Here's a HINT: In some cases, responses may vary. Today, you can buy a banana on the right on the first floor, although some days ago you couldn't. However, you'll always be able to buy a 1:1 model of the earth on the right on every floor.

Haha, okay (:

Would it help for us to categorize the objetcs? Yope, DOYD of "categorize".

And it might help to look at my list of objects you can't buy on the right side, keeping in mind that you (usually) can buy them on the left side.

HINT: When you can buy an object on the first floor on the left handside, you can always buy it on the left handside on the second floor too.
Objects that you can't buy on the right handside on the first floor can't be bought on the right handside on the second floor either.
It's a bit more difficult with objects on the ground floor.

Maybe a few more left turns would help (:

wuz wundrin...

well, we usually find chairs, computers, whipped cream, soda, bananas, band-aids, etc. at actual stores.

1:1 scale models of the earth, penguins, elephants, dragons, a million apples...not so much. Although you might find penguins, elephants, dragons, etc. in stuffed/ornamental forms. But not real ones. =(

In this puzzle, only the "real thing" counts :D models/toy versions/pictures/... of the products do not count.

Loooong RECAP (for Kaylee and all the others)

In my department store, you can buy things on the ground floor, first floor and second floor, both on the left and on the right side.

Things that can be bought on the left side usually can't be bought on the right side of the corresponding floor and vice versa.

When you can buy an object on the first floor on the left handside, you can always buy it on the left handside on the second floor too.
Objects that you can't buy on the right handside on the first floor can't be bought on the right handside on the second floor either.

So far, you haven't found an object that can be bought on the left side of the ground floor, but maybe you can find one if you look at my HINT from Nov 9.

The right side of my department store seems to be a special place where you can buy 1:1 scale models of the earth, mythical creatures, a million apples, wild animals... whereas the left side seems to be pretty ordinary.

In some cases, responses may vary, but this has nothing to do with when/where/by whom/how the question is asked. So... HINT: the rule seems to be somewhere outside of the puzzle itself.

ok, is the left side of the ground floor somewhere in your house? what you're wearing or what you've eaten recently?

is the left side of the second floor a supermarket? an online supermarket?

ok, is the left side of the ground floor somewhere in your house? no, but my house is relevant what you're wearing or what you've eaten recently? THIS!!

One part of the rule is found: On the left side of the ground floor you can buy everything that I have on my body at the moment I answer the question.


is the left side of the second floor a supermarket? an online supermarket? no to both

do the left sides of the first and second floors only contain items you have previously bought? owned/worn/consumed etc? is a timeframe important for determining what could be bought on the second floor that couldn't be bought on the first?

is the left side of the first floor everything you have in your house when you answer the q? not the first floor, but... or, not in my house, but... - very good q (:

ok - is the left side of the second floor everything in your house when you ask the question?

and the left side of the first floor everything in the room you're in when you answer the question? almost - it's everthing that is in my bedroom, not in the room that I answer the questions in (although that's my bedroom most of the time)
Thanks Andy, we're sooo close to the solution now - what's the mysterious right side?


This is by the way the first of my puzzles to reach 100 posts... don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing though

things that aren't GF on you when you answer the question / FF in your bedroom / SF in your house yep... it's finally, thanks to Andy's great questions, time for the

********SPOILER********
The ground floor stands for everything that I have on my body, the first floor stands for my bedroom, and the second floor for my house.

On the left side, you can buy everything that is physically present in the respective places at the moment I answer the questions.
The right side is the "imaginary" one where you can buy everything that is not there.


Thanks a lot for playing and for your endless patience (:

Oh and if anyone's interested, here are the rules of the game that this rulebreaker was loosely based on -

The aim is the same - to guess the rule. The group sits in a circle. When it's your turn, you basically ask the same kind of question that we used here, but the answer is determined in a different way: If you go to floor x on the right/left side to buy y, you can buy it if the person sitting x places away from you on your right/left has this object on their body.

Do you have similar children's games in your respective countries?
I know some more, and I'm trying to adapt them for the internet... my next rulebreaker is coming soon (:
