[Doriana] Bend it like Brinda

Postby Doriana » Wed Nov 21, 2018 3:30 pm

Brinda has no interest in football (i.e. soccer). Why does she look up the date, time and location of a specific football match?

Does she intend to go to the match? Does the time, date or location have a direct impact on her ? Is she up to no good? Would this puzzle work with another ball sport? Is Brinda's job relevant? Her hobbies? Her relationships? Does the game present Brinda with an opportunity of some sort?

This is based on a true story that only works with football, but if you constructed the scenario a bit differently, other might work as well Is Brinda's job relevant? No Her hobbies? Yes Her relationships? No Does the game present Brinda with an opportunity of some sort? No

Does Brinda intend to go somewhere relevant? With someone else? At the same time or date as the soccer match?

Does she want to go somewhere near the soccer arena? Does she want to go to the arena itself? For another event there?
Someone: = H? A? M? Friend? Relative? Romantic partner? Loathed enemy? (why not)

Is the way in which crowds behave at soccer matches relevant? Chanting?

The place near the arena: another location for sport? A restaurant? Another type of building? Somewhere that isn't a building?

********SPOILER********

Brinda is a lacrosse umpire who has to officiate a game in Dortmund. The game takes place at a sports complex near Signal Iduna Park, home of Borussia Dortmund, and attendees will usually park at the complex on game days. She knows that Borussia Dortmund is playing Bayern München the same weekend, but as someone who isn't into the whole football thing, she doesn't know where and when the match would be played. So she checks the date, time and location to see whether she can go there by car (and find parking) or should rather take a train instead.


Well done, Balin! New puzzle will be up in a minute.
