Also possible :) But I would need to use the scale 4 times, not 3..

It is simple Yiannis First, compare weight of 6 and 6, to find more heavy half which contain the ball we are looking for. Second, compare weight of 3 and 3 from that half. Third, compare weight of any 2 from the more heavy 3. If they are equal it means that the remaining ball is the heaviest. If they are not equal -.. well, it is obvious
But the name of the topic is really appealing


And the Winner is....Christie :P

You didn't let me down Yiannis, I respect cannedmoose's status :)
I am just afraid that 12 balls mean I got the 'average evening in Main Source's house" .. :oops:
