On the Subject of Chalices

Determining which drink to poison off of arbitrary false psychology since 1989.

  • You are sent to the killing floor and your seven friends are smart enough to poison seven different chalices. You must drink from the non-poisoned chalice in order to survive.
  • To determine which chalice is safe follow the flowchart below and its corresponding rules to determine which chalice to drink from.
  • Cup positioning and order rules can be found beneath the rules tables.
  • Start at the question mark in the center starting with the northmost facing arrow go to the next clockwise arrow for each port on the bomb and follow the rules from there.
If the first condition is true, follow the red arrow.
Otherwise if the second condition is true then follow the black arrow (if available).
Otherwise follow the white arrow.
