While I did get all the answers, I have only one 'nitpick'.

The last sentence ends with "...it is customary to say ____, indicating that it's looking for one word. Standing alone, I guessed "grace", however, that word didn't fit in with the letters of part-two of the other two sentences. I figured "Amen" *did* fit, however, the sentence (in my email box) did not say anything about "grace, followed by ____". If the original that came in my mailbox had had that last bit in it, then "AMEN" would have made perfect sense to me.

Other than that little pickiness, I did think it was very fun!

Thanks you guys! I logged in to braingle, and only then realized my teaser made it to the Daily Teaser! A first for me!

I ended up voting HARD because there was no way to vote impossible. The first blank was easy but the eay the sentences were structured the 2nd blank is impossiblthere is no way thet grace can be re-arranged to find words that would fit in the other sentences.
shawneeo*us*
Dec 04, 2005

Thanks! I thought it was easy, because once you get the first one, which was pretty obvious, you know what the others have to be. I think the last one should have said "You say grace followed by____." But, the way I saw it, you DO say Amen before eating just as often as you say grace before eating, so technically, that way, it worked, but maybe a slightly diff. wording would clear that up. Thanks!

It was a good one, but the last one says 3. Before each ______, it is customary to say _______. But in the answer it says ...Grace and end with ________. This needs to be fixed.

can you do another one with longer anagrams?
jcann*us*
Dec 04, 2005

Lots of fun. It was hard enough to present a challenge, but eary enought to solve once on the right track. I, too, thought of "grace" at first, but then realized that it was not a four letter word. So once I came up with "lame" excuse, it was easy to think of the amen.

Good job!

I didn't understand the directions. However, after looking at the answer "I got it"... an example would have been extremely helpful.

Dec 05, 2005

A little too easy, in my opinion. I gotta say the instructions were a little confusing at first, so instead of trying to figure them out, I just went right to the teaser, and got the answers. Going back to the instructions after I figured out the right answer, I still wasn't sure if they made sense, so you might want to look at that. Otherwise, good job! Hey, I like anagrams as much as the next Joe...

Dec 05, 2005

Thanks you guys for the helpful and constructive feedback. Well, someone went and changed the sentence to include Grace in the answer and happily forgot to change it in the teaser. I have submitted the correction so that it is consistent. There was no 'Grace' originally in my teaser! I hope people are more careful about corrections they make in future.

Brainster, thank you for not being offended by the constructive criticism, you obviously live up to your nic.
It really is a fun brain teaser, I enjoyed it a lot!! Keep up the great work!!

Dec 07, 2005

Thanks speediebean, well some of the comments do have some good pointers, and the rest, I would rather ignore than go into an immature confrontation. After all, we all are here to learn something new and have fun!

This was an interesting Braingle, however, like speediebean I only received part of the last line in my email so it didn't fully make sense to me.

Ditto on the instructions issue - they must go with a different teaser.
