A PUZZLING PICNIC PARTY

#ObligatoryFoodPic(nic)

After months of waiting and meticulous planning, it was finally time for the Social Media staff's Annual Picnic! They were going to do it last month, but Maddy had a thing, and then Hav broke her ankle. Oh, and Anthony fell down that staircase that one time; so all in all postponing it seemed like the best option. Regardless, the day had very nearly arrived, and the excitement was palpable!

Each member of the group was responsible for bringing a different food and drink to the picnic, for everyone to share. The night before the picnic, the group of five agreed to meet at work to discuss the arrangements one last time and to finalize the plan. They all arrived pretty much on time, with the exception of Brie. She was responsible for bringing the the document they'd made, and had gotten halfway to work before realizing she'd left it at home. Eventually though, the five of them and the document were all in the same place.

As the "leader" of the group, Thene said that she wanted to go over the document first. The others saw no issue; and Brie went to hand her the paper. As she reached over, the paper slipped from her grasp and flew downwards, landing in the cup of tea Anthony had made for himself while waiting earlier. Panic ensued and three hands reached for the paper at the same time, succeeding only in knocking the cup over and drenching the paper completely.

Hav was the first to manage to rescue the paper from death by tea, but the damage was already done. The ink had run and the entire thing was completely unreadable. "What are we going to do?" Maddy wailed, somewhat over-dramatically. Ever the professional, Thene had an idea. "If we can all remember facts that we know were decided for certain, perhaps we can piece together the full picture ourselves?" The others looked at each other for a moment. Finally, Brie broke the silence. "Please don't tell me I'm the only one with a memory like a goldfish..."



TASK
The Social Media staff need your help in putting the all important document back together! This is in the form of a logic puzzle. The staff have provided the information they remember, however, part of the clues provided are coded and the answers lie within the social media platforms that HEX uses.

Your task is to hunt for these clue portions, solve the puzzles, and place the answers correctly in the logic grid. Then, complete the grid and submit your answers using the format below. More details can be found in the rules below.

all puzzle solutions: which platform they are found
moderator - food - drink - order of arrival - platform


Clues
• The five people on the picnic are: someone who shared photos on Instagram, the last mod to arrive, the one assigned to bring the Firewhiskey, the mod who brought one of the Golden Trio's favorite dessert, and Brie.
• Anthony brought his favorite tea, but did not post about it on Tumblr or Pinterest.
• The third to arrive to the party was Hav, and she carried a tin full of Ron-Weasley-inspired crunchy treats that might be peanuts.
• The drink that keeps making everyone go 'teehee!' was not brought by the mod on Pinterest or Facebook.
• Rock Cakes arrived first and with the mod who shared a photo on Facebook.
• Maddy, who arrived last, did not bring the treat that a Quidditch Seeker bought at the start of the 1994 term.
• The order of arrival was: Facebook, Tea, Hav, one of the Golden Trio's favorite dessert, and Twitter.
• The drink that cheers Professor Dumbledore up (or so he tells the youngest Weasley) was not brought by Thene or with the BBEFBs.
• The mod who shared on Pinterest did not bring Firewhiskey or the crunchy peanut-y treats.
• Hav did not bring the drink that makes everyone go 'teehee!' or the one that cheers Professor Dumbledore up.


RULES

+ Parts of the task will be posted on HEX social media accounts. However, you are not required to create or have an account on those platforms to view the tasks or clues.

@Sav-Black

There are clues pertaining to the mystery food and drink items in the logic grid hidden on all of HEXRPG's platforms. You need to hunt for those clues, solve the puzzle to identify the mysterious items, and use them to complete the logic grid above.

Good luck!

Oh, okay. Will they be fairly obvious? (Sorry for the 20 questions! I'm legit stupid when it comes to anything social media. I'm fairly certain I was born in the wrong century.) 😊

Well we can't make them too easy. But rest assured that they won't be somewhere too far back either.

I have a question on the clue from Tumblr. Is it missing a letter?

@Thesty - Yes, there is a missing letter in the clue, but it should not affect your ability to solve the puzzle. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to owl one the mods or post here ^-^

@Athenniene-Cromwell

For the solutions to puzzles, do we need a screenshot of each puzzle, or can we just write something like:
~ Facebook - (solution)
~ Pinterest - (solution)
etc.

@Sav-Black

No need to include the actual screenshots. As long as you mention the actual names of the food/drink items hidden on the platforms in your submission and you state which platforms they are from, it's fine.
