I always seem to get about this far on the tougher puzzles. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.

I took a stab at this one. Not completely sure that it's correct but it looks good.

As far as I can tell, your grid is correct so far.

Look at the two precedence clues 6 and 7.

Clue 6: 102 = Francisco + 1

Clue 7: Bobby = Willard + 1

If Bobby was 102, then Francisco and Willard would have to be associated with the same year, right? They would both be Bobby - 1 (or 102 - 1). They would both be in the same row just above Bobby's row.

Can't have that, so Bobby cannot be 102. He must be 85. And the rest falls into place.

I think the solution is 53124-25314-31452

1982-Fran-teal-56

1983-Nath-indigo-102

1984-Ev-red-49

1985-Will-yellow-78

1986-Bobby-maroon-85

Try this solution if the game is still running, and let me know if I got the logic right.

Xenobia, I'm relieved that your solution matches mine. :)

I'm relieved too after seeing your solution! :)

Puzzles like this were ones that used to make me think that we had to guess to get some of the solutions.

Perfect. This solution is correct. I figured it out by guessing but I wanted to know the logic behind how to get there from here so to speak. I appreciate the help from both of you.
