My Stumped Spot

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
Code:
```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.
