Speed Running is one of the eight unlockable puzzles from P.I.HUNT 2. It is an Einstein zebra logic puzzle but with some statements as lies.

Solve Path[edit | edit source]


The goal is to solve the Einstein zebra logic puzzle while identifying which ones tell the truth and which ones tell lies.

Below are some strategies for the logic puzzle.
  • Since everyone made a statement on beating someone else, first place must be a Facts Fox and last place must be a Lying Lion. Additionally, Kenny's statements must be either both true or both false, so this can help determine the animal type.
  • When the cases to check are small, proof by contradiction can be useful, as in assuming one of the claims is true and working to a contradiction to prove that said claim is false.
Indexing by ranking is used for extraction, though with Facts Fox and Lying Lion having the same first letters as first and last name respectively, one of the names is used for each index.
