Gaston takes reservations. Gaston moves quickly. Gaston runs the world's best gambling operation.

I am having problems with this one. Not sure I even have any paritcular third of it right.

Like, I want takes reservations to be "Maitre D's like Gason" but then I have no idea how that leads to the rest.

Gonna be milling this one.

I have a scenario where it's "books" for all three, but I don't think that's the game here.

Thank you, and kudos, Kim.

I don't know why I had stumbled into this part of the forum when you posted the first one, but I was afraid to post because I didn't know for sure what was going on. I didn't want to ruin anything. I'm glad I replied, though, this is fun.

So, behind the scenes... I was IMing with Kim while at my job, writing out crap lyrics to the Gaston song to reflect my daily life (no one writes like Gaston, no one types like Gaston, no one prepares the powerpoint slides like Gaston) and annoying her by getting the song stuck in her head. Then I realized it could be a puzzle game. Wrote the first puzzle, play tested it on her. Then dropped it in thread here to see if people could solve it as a minimal information puzzle (to begin with) and was happy to see it solved in 11 minutes (during which I had written the second puzzle in my head).

Now I kinda love it as a puzzle form. Which, I think after some quick searching yesterday, we may have invented.
