Santa and the reindeer are lost in a North Pole blizzard! And to make matters
worse, the reindeer were out grazing on the glacier and cant get back to
the workshop. Luckily, Santa had the foresight to set up signposts to mark
the path from his workshop to his sleigh. And he equipped the reindeer with
reindeer-cams so he could keep track of where they were. Now he can use those
to see the signposts and figure out where his path is.
The 99 signposts are laid out on a square grid, numbered 1 through 99, with
signpost 1 next to signpost 2, 2 next to 3, and so on (diagonals dont
count). Through a reindeer-cam, he can see the four nearest squares to that
reindeer. Your goal is to help him figure out where each numbered signpost is
so he can hitch up the reindeer and get to his sleigh.
The locations of the eight reindeer are shown above as blue dots. The area
each reindeer-cam can see is shown in light blue. When you wave the cursor
over a dot, youll see the four numbers that reindeer can see on nearby
signposts. These are shown in a little yellow popup box. The tricky part
is you arent told what order the numbers appear in; youre only
told the numbers, not the order. The only other information you know is that,
when santa walks along his path, he will come across the reindeer in the
correct hitching order (from Dasher to Blitzen).
Using logic, you can figure out which number (from 1 to 99) belongs in each
square. Its up to you. Otherwise, Christmas will be late this year.
