I had a similar idea. Break them into three groups of four but then got confused about where to go after you compare the three groups against one another without running out of tries. Hmmmmmmm.

Yeah, not at my desk at the moment to work it out again, but I’ve definitely worked it out before in a repeatable fashion.

I do like the idea of the 365nm and violence though ;p

WARNING FOR RIDDLE ANSWER ATTEMPT

I’m pretty sure this works, but I’m tired so I may have missed something. It also doesn’t seem like the most efficient solution, which is worrying.

-Scale 1—————Scale 2———-Aside

1,2,3,4,5,———-7,8,9,10,12——6,11,13

1,3,7,9,11———-2,4,6,8,10——-5,12,13

1,2,7,8—————3,4,9,10———-13

This should result in the following mapping, where L: left side is light, R: right side is light, and B: the two are perfectly balanced (as all things should be).

1 LLL
2 LRL
3 LLR
4 LRR
5 LBB
6 BRB
7 RLL
8 RRL
9 RLR
10 RRR
11 BLB
12 RBB

You’re definitely on the right track… but it looks like you’re assuming the fake is lighter than the others. What if it’s heavier? This test can’t distinguish between #1 being lighter and #10 being heavier.

I suppose it would have been wise to read the specifications a bit more carefully. I think I removed all the symmetric cases, although it still feels like I’m missing something. It worries me that I did not use the dummy stone.

Thanks much to all who helped get this going. Especially TK. I did purchase 2 but would like to get in on the 2nd round of different LEDs. I would like to be able to purchase 2 more at the discounted rate when those come in. I am not exactly sure how that is going to work but if it means I am to comment again then consider this to be the post. Good luck all!

I think being put on the list closes in 4 hours (based on a reddit comment by TK) so should be okay.

OK, I guess I’m in for one more, three in total. This one will be a later led variant.

Thanks,
