Quistel 1 : The Hotel

Introduction

Quistels, or situation puzzles, are a kind of quiz that is normally played in society. One person knows the solutions, the others have to ask questions in order to solve.

At this time, I do not know how to write an artificially intelligent applet that would answer your questions within the web browser and eventually reveal the solution at the end.

However, some people might want to guess a little before reading the solution, so I arranged this page in the classical way of Spoiler messages in rec.puzzles: this page contains several hints before the solution is revealed. You have to scroll one screen down before seeing the next hint or solution. I recommend to save this file and try it offline.
