i tried and tried, without success. That was a very fun teaser to try, but also very hard for me. I enjoy the ones you have to actually TRY! This was great!!

An excellent teaser! I got completely stuck on "side" I couldn't come up with anything other than side walk... which didn't work...

Great job!

This one could have been fun, but the directions were very poorly writen and difficult to understand. I think if more teasers like this one are to follow, the directions need to be written in such a way that everyone can understand.

Got one, gave up!!!
iteachkidsAus*
Jan 15, 2006

I thought the directions were clear. Very clear. I had a good start, but once I got going the wrong direction, I was lost, LOST, LOSSSSSSSSSST! Thanks for a tough, but FUN one!

Great teaser. After seeing the answer, realize it was very doable. I just couldn't get my brain going in the right direction.

Please Imurray, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I thought the teaser was great!

I thought the directions were quite clear. Nice one.

Jan 15, 2006

Very tough! I got the first one, but then I got foing in the wrong direction and, well, needless to say I didn't get the rest! The directions were clear to me once I saw the example. Good job!

Jan 16, 2006

Wow! That was a tough one! I didn't get a single one I don't have enough patience

I agree, Imurray if you don't like them, don"t subscribe!
I enjoyed this one. It was easy, but alas sooooo hard.
Thanx.

I have never rated a Teaser as Boring, because I can always find something likable about the teaser, even if I don't answer correctly. My concern is: Suppose I did find a Teaser boring, would I have to Unsubscribe, or feel as though I'm a child who must watch what I say, or feel? There is a rating of Boring. Let's be mindful of those Outspoken members who find it difficult to Not express themselves Honestly.

I agree. Nowhere does it say this is " The Happy Happy Funtime Comments Section." It just says "Comments." Good or bad, we have to learn to accept them, because people like lmurray will always be out there. If not him, it'll be someone else, people. So first, lighten up. Second, let it go and ignore him.

For the record, I liked the teaser, but didn't have the patience to see it all the way through. I just clicked on the answer and it all made sense after that. A little help by way of a hint might have been nice...

As always I spent waaaaaaaay too much time on this! good puzzle! I found a few alternates too.

wow that was really really good it is one of the best ones I have seen yet although i got stumped about halfway through you should write more like this one

Nice teaser. I came up with numerous words to attach to tail- and -side and side- and -fall, but couldn't get any to work. For the other words, however, I came up with a completely different and valid chain:
...fall out break down turn off spring time out fox hole
(OK, so "outfox" isn't a compound word per se, but it completes a nice chain nonetheless)
JimmymoAie*
Jan 16, 2009

Couldn't get the last one! But for the second one I had tailback-backflip-flipside-did anyone else get that!
auntiesisAus*
Jan 16, 2009

I only got a couple of them, this was a tough one. Too many possibilities. Good one.
Valic4Aus*
Jan 16, 2009

I thought of an alternate to "tail ? ? side". This became "tail spin off side" for me! Great challenge!
mumbojumbo1234A*
Jan 16, 2009

Got about half =x
Nicky101Aus*
Jan 16, 2009

Very hard and very fun! I came up with a different chain (some of which are stretches )

waist high tail end game side long face down... and that was where it just stopped. I couldn't figure it out!

Not fair to yell at labdr for his opinion. It definetly says make a comment and he or she did. That is their opinion! All you others who say it was hard and you did not get it still say it was great. That does not sound too honest to me. I gave up on it as I felt it was hard also and that is MY OPINION, to which I am entitled.
gaylewolfAus*
Jan 16, 2012

Not easy but clever teaser. I'm not awake enough yet for this kind of thinking! Good one - thanks!
cutebugAus*
Jan 16, 2012

I completed it w/ different words. I think there was a lot of solutions.
wordmama*
Jan 16, 2012

I got waist high tail but couldn't get tail to connect to the next one, so my chain had to stop! In spite of my user name, this one, although ambitious and good, has given me a throbbing headache!! When I looked at the answers, I saw that I would never have thought of many of those little-used combinations, so I didn't feel so bad not pursuing it. Have a good day, all!
