Brain Game: Meet Doug


Please say hello to my buddy Doug, whose likes and dislikes will help you solve today's Brain Game Free-for-all Friday challenge. Good luck!

Doug would rather drink muscatel than chianti. He prefers his hash browns scattered but not smothered. He thinks that location matters more than price. And he'd prefer to wed in a cathedral instead of a chapel. With all these in mind, in which of these Idaho cities would Doug like to reside? Boise, Idaho Falls, Pocatello

Here is the ANSWER.


Doug's Idaho home would be located in POCATELLO.

Doug is a feline fan; he loves cats. That's why he'd choose mus-CAT-el, s-CAT-tered, lo-CAT-ion, and CAT-hedral, and also why Po-CAT-ello would be the perfect Gem State spot for him.

NOTE: These puzzles sometimes lend themselves to alternate "correct" answers. If you came up with one, feel free to share it with us in the comments below. And have a great weekend!
