SINCE THE SYLLABLES IN THE SYLALIST ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE IN THIS TEASER, I THINK ANY 5th. 6th. GRADER COULD ANSWER THIS CORRECTLY.

IF YOU WERE TO ADD A FEW EXTRA SYLLABLES OR USE THEM MORE THAN ONCE, IT WOULD ADD GREATLY TO THE LIKELIHOOD OF NOT "EVERYONE" GETTING THE ANSWER.

THANKS FOR TRYING

Why does someone (guess who) who has the points, contributes nothing but petty criticism in such a rude, annoying fashion?

This teaser was fun to work out. Lets see more, cdrock you did a good job, I think.

Easy, but fun and suitable to share with younger people.

I found this easy also but still enjoyable. Had to think about a couple of them, so it serves the purpose of a teaser. Good job.

This was a good one, easy when you work it out,

The teaser was easy enough, to make it seem simple. So, the teaser is good to keep school kids busy. I will be looking for some tougher ones from you. Come on now! This IS too easy.

The first few were WAY too easy, like #1, walrus (note the spelling). The rest only got easier.

Fun, though!

Thought it was fun, got the hamster in my brain turning the wheel.


Can't wait to see a teaser from (that guy) the critic, so we can give him some of his own medicine.

Wow! Can't believe anyone criticizes this game.
Maybe they miss the point. It's a brain exerciser, and works to keep the bad goblins away. Loved this one, as words are my "hobby" and, yes, it was relatively easy, but that's a good thing! Others were right. If they were all impossible to solve, I'd quit trying. Keep up the good work!

My apologies to ALL, including the author of the teaser. Apparently, we are not allowed to give healthy criticism on a teaser, anymore. I suppose I will just back off and allow others to always give a thumbs up on ALL of these entries. Just be aware when someone enters a "teaser" asking what is 1+1+1? And everyone figures it out. And here I thought this was a *brain teaser* site, with people who can stand healthy criticism. It seems some people need to get thicker skin. My apologies, my dear author of this teaser and others, considering the length of time you have been with the braingle site.

I agree with Imurray and pizzazz... I want a challenge. Sorry, but this teaser was just way too easy.
QrystalAca*
Oct 13, 2006

Sure, it was pretty easy, but not on the same level as the 1+1+1 example. In fact, for a few of them, I had to move on ... I skipped 5 and 6, then went back to them. I found it fun, and quickly rewarding. No popped brain cells, but I'm behind in my daily teasers anyways, so I'm glad for it

And by the way, this is why there is a rating scale. Just rate it easy. If you want hard ones, go find the ones rated hard. If you want a random sampling of all that Braingle has to offer... join us for the daily teaser, and/or hit the random button

This was a good one! I didn't know what to do because this is my second day on this website.

A good, easy thinking teaser. I enjoy these and do them using elimination of the syllables until there are none left. The last word I got was ER RAND. IMURRAY is right when he talks about using syllables more than once, or having leftover, unusable syllables -- to make the teaser harder.

I got this one and it was fun. Thanks for not making me think too hard on a Friday! Later

Too late on a Friday evening for conflict. CDrock submitted the teaser..the judges or editors accepted it...and that's way more than I've ever done. Therefore, thanks, CD for ending the week on an easy note.

Ditto Qrystal! Couldn't have said it better!

CDROCK: Thanks for submitting!

couldnt get the last two but other than that its pretty easy its refreshing to get an easy one finally thanks! i loved it

nice one.....i like it when their easy

Yes, this was easy, but is no doubt interesting and caters to those who arent good in language teasers. However, there is a a point in what IMURRAY says: to make this harder, you can add a couple of cleverly chosen additional syllables as dummies, but then someone could come up with an objection that that makes it too difficult! Surely, one cannot satisfy all solvers' expectations! All the same, I enjoyed solving this one! Thanks.

Thanks CDrocks - Thqa was fun. Things don't always have to be a brain buster to be entertaining. More please?

Hummm. Eskimo is no longer used to describe people of the north. The proper name is Inuit.

The Eskimo-Inuit comment above show my being canadian it seems. In Canada Inuit is preferred for sure; Seems like Eskimo is still accepted in Alaska.

This was a pretty fun teaser, one that I actually got. Well, I got the first three. Then it got a little tricky with the three syllables...

That was like so many we have had lately, but I will take it. It was fun yet t a bit easy. Someone above had to complain that they were too smart for the rest of us. That's a new twist to most complaints and made me smile!

Not much of a challenge
