I thought No. 3 was Ducklidu, a well-known and well-used word round our way(!)

As you may gather, didn't get No. 3; otherwise, gold star.

Thanks for the clever puzzle - I was trying to make two words out of each one. When I finally looked at the answers I laughed at myself. It was still fun.

Great one. Took just the right amount of time to solve, to keep from being bored or frustrated.

Great teaser! Only when I clicked to get the whole teaser the answer was already showing! Otherwise nice job!!

Great one, got it only after a few minutes
shawneeo*us*
Jan 19, 2006

I got them allllll!!! That was a fun one, pep. Like the person above said, just the right amount of hardness. I agree with Brain whatever his/her name was above, sometimes you click on your email link and the answer is staring you in the face, takes away all the fun! I wish that could be fixed! Thanks for the teaser, good one, Thanks!

Great one as usual peppamintp. Keep them coming. Had trouble with 3 and 5 and was disappointed also when I discovered the answer wasn't hidden. Kind of blew it for me. But it did make me think of another one B--kp--k. Am sure most of you will slide right by this. See you tomorrow.

Loved it last year and love it again this year.
breathesunshineAus*
Jan 20, 2007

I got a couple and then got impatient with myself and looked at the answers. I hate it when I do that! Good puzzle for making those brain gears grind!
notsosmart111Aie*
Jan 21, 2007

That was horrible! Just another word blank! Be creative! Sheesh!
QrystalAca*
Jan 25, 2007

Well, I thought it was cute, and even verging on tricky. I struggled a bit with 'neckline', but got it, and struggled some more but gave up on 'leaflet'. It was just tough enough! Congratz on a good teaser!

chessgeniusA*
Jan 22, 2013

Leaflet is the only one i missed.the first one i got was NECKLINE and that made me so happy.very good teaser
gaylewolfAus*
Jan 22, 2013

I love that type of quiz, but I'm losing my brain power - I did better in 2010 than I did today. Bandstand jumped out at me, the rest were slower. Have a wonderful day - and keep warm. Here in Michigan is reallllly cold!!!
iggy39Aus*

Had fun really liked this type of teasr.
Only missed the last one.
