Ooh, I thought one of the words was Pire. I guess I was thinking of Spire or pyre. I dunno.

Fun!

Rather simple. The last clue helps one to work backwards, if one were in doubt. All the same, an interestinf teaser. Waiting for more.

This is a dynamically creative and thrilling way to get younger and older individuals to search for answers of the given clues. Even though CW enthusiasts will believe this is too easy. And yes, I worked this thing backwards, too. But, I had fun with it.

I, too, had trouble with Pier, but finally got under that one and put the finishing touches on it and it didn't take any slaves to do it. Great teaser. More please?

Great teaser I really enjoyed it. That said, The Empire state building may be the tallest building in New York City. It is not the tallest in the world however. Last I heard the CN Tower in Toronto Canada was the tallest.

Yeah ... the Empire State Building is NINTH tallest in the world, the tallest being in Taipei, Taiwan.

I'd never tried one of these before. I had to look at the answer first to see how they worked. Looks like fun. I'm looking forward to the next one.

As was stated in the answer, the Empire State Building is the tallest skyscraper in New York City. Never was it mentioned being the tallest in the world (FYI).

I wonder who Mr. above really is?

Good teaser. And it true about the Empire State Building. Just read the answer more carefully.

Sorry for any insult or confusion.

I wonder who Mr. learningchinese above really is?

Good teaser. And it true about the Empire State Building. Just read the answer more carefully.

Hey FriarFox, the reason people are commenting is b/c you state at the end of your teaser "The Empire State Building is once again the world's tallest skyscraper in New York City...."while I'm sure you meant to say it's once again the tallest skyscraper in NYC. BTW, nice teaser...

Cheers! I got 'em all! Had to work backwards from EMPIRE to get PRIME, because I had a question mark next to PIER, but it all worked out. Yay!
