Puzzle # 376_The Card Game Part I
31-Jul-15
Views : 431
Not yet rated
 
Six friends - A, B, C, D, E, F - are sitting around a circular table with their mugs of coffee to play a game of cards. The game moderator, who is not one of them, starts distributing the cards and his assistant starts noting down the cards given to each person. The card moderator loves puzzles and has hence asked the friends to re-arrange themselves according these instructions:
  1. B should not sit opposite E.
  2. F is between A and C.
  3. The player with 5 Blacks is sitting next to the player with 5 Reds.
  4. C plays before D if B starts the game. 
  5. E is equidistant from F, in any case.
After the card dealing is done, one of friends spills some coffee on the sheet due to which it becomes unreadable. Luckily though, all of them remember the face value of their cards but can only recall snippets of information about the suits and colour of their cards, as given below:
  1. No player had all cards of a single suit or the same colour.
  2. Each player has exactly 6 cards and they play anti-clockwise.
  3. D has the highest possible number of Clubs and B has the highest possible Reds.
  4. The player opposite F has 4 Blacks.
  5. A has no Clubs and Diamonds, D has no Spades, Diamonds and C has no Spades.
  6. A has one black card more than the person sitting to his right.
  7. Besides D, all the players have equal number of Clubs.
  8. E & F have no Hearts while their combined count of Spades exceeds that of A by 1.
  9. B has 3 suits of cards and as many Diamonds as the number of Clubs that the person sitting opposite him has. 
  10. An equal number of cards have been distributed per suit. 
Can you help the assistant identify the suit-level card breakup for each player?
