I'be noticed in the comments here and on other teasers that some folks think that easy is a bad thing.... I guess, since I have so much trouble on the tough ones, I'm happy to see an easy one come along. It's like a wiff of fresh air in my muddled brain. Yes, this was fun, and a bit easy. And that's ok!! It had me sitting here grinning that I was able to solve one. Thanks for creating it and keep them coming.

This puzzle was easy when I understood the directions
lindquist_25Aus*
Feb 23, 2006

Ohhh I got it now. I think the directions were too vaugue. Maybe you should have worked harder to make clear directions. I didn't understand it at all. I'm looking at the answer and I'm just like "What?! These aren't anagrams!" The I figured it out. So anyway, that's my opinion. It was kind of cute though.

I thought it was fairly easy, but very good! What made it easy (for some) were the clue sentences cause there weren't other words that would work in the spaces. Bood job, thanks!

Feb 23, 2006

Good one. I came up with the right answers, but wasn't sure because the directions were not very clear. Really made me think on this one.

Feb 23, 2006

I mis-read the directions. I thought the anagrams were on the same line, not above and below each other.

Ah! The directions were the true teaser. The teaster a mear red hearing. Very cleaver.

This one was easy AND fun! I was actually able to solve a teaser for a change! I personally didn't have any problems understanding the directions, but I had to read it twice before learning how to do it right. Good job, and keep 'em coming!

Hey, what fun. I had gotten trap and part for #1 and rapt and team on #2 and then I figured out the directions because I could make meat out of team and rapt out of trap. Sooooo, the rest was easy. I'm glad I am starting to understand the anagrams.And I thought the directions couldn't have been written any different, once everything fell into place. Nice job.

I'm with bootscooter58 - I think it's great fun to have an easy one from time-to-time.
As for the directions, I didn't have a problem with them at all. Thanks, brainster!

I have finally figured out that 2 jumbo cups of coffee are the answer for me, 'cause I got 'em all right!!

An easy one. Maybe it was easy for me to get the answers quickly, as I love anagrams. Good fun!

Feb 23, 2007

good teaser.
i believe all those who said "too easy" just say that to make others think they are way smart. quite contrary.
everyday i see a teaser and love to make my brain tickle.
kudos to all the teaser inventors.

Whew, am I glad I reread the instructions; after that it was a piece of cake. I would have preferred more of a challenge.

Good job! I like anagram teasers whether they are easy or hard. I don't see how the directions could have been any more clear. I tried the wrong thing at first, trying to make the two words in each sentence an anagram of each other, but that was my fault for not reading the directions--not the way the directions were written.
peeve30*
Feb 23, 2007

I didnt take the time to read the directions correctly, so I was confused at first, but just for a second! I liked it, great job!!!

ewww... vlerma made meat out of the team. Cannibal!

Anyways, I liked this teaser because it was a cute way to display some anagram triplets in a way I hadn't seen. I've seen the anagram triplets before though, and that made it easier than it could've been, but that's okay, I haven't had much time to focus on teasers for long lately. So yay, I got it and that makes me smile!

It took me a minute to figure out the directions, but the teaser was really easy once I got past the instructions. Fun one.

Fun once I figured out how to do it! Great job!

AHHHH. now I get it. I had some of the words but I thought the anagrams were suposed to be on the same line. fun teaser.

I too had a time figuring out the directions. Not being alone on this makes me feel not quite so dumb. I got them after I figured it out and then it was easy!
HABS2933Aca*
Mar 07, 2013

I didn't have any problems with what you were supposed to do, though upon second reading when others said they had I can see where it may have confused some of the none English speakers.
Teaser itself was fairly easy. But given that the author most likely speaks English as a second language, it was enjoyable.

Mar 07, 2013

Once you get the first one the others are automatic. I agree w/ HABS remarks. He showed his profound brillance again.

I knew the key was going to be in the directions, and had to actually make myself Read them until I stopped skimming That was its own teaser! It fell into place & worked!

I love these puzzles! I noticed a couple of us responded back in 2010! Looking forward to a great weekend - wedding and baby shower - my grandchildren are growing up!
