Very interesting and good for waking up minds. The *board* can throw you into thinking other words. Fortunately, I did get it correct, today! Fascinating teaser! Keep up the series! Just don't repeat it after a month! Please?!?

Good Morn, I too thought of board as in keyboard etc but stone obviously makes sense, don`t people realise it`s `stonewall` NOT wallstone come on folks wakey, wakey. Good teaser, thankyou

Got this one... first I thought the answer was chain...but that only works for key. But after rereading it, i decided that stone would more than likely work. Thanks for the great teaser!

I was thinking WHITE, but that didn't match with Key and Gem. Good one.

Thanks Fishmed...nice way to start Saturday.

katie4, I'm not sure you can change names, but you can set up a new account under a new name. But I'm not a Braingle pro, so I may not know what I'm talking about. Did that help?

I didn't think this one was bad. I liked it. It wasn't totally hard, but still sort of hard (I didn't get it right)

pretty cool teaser!

Whoa, I took a guess and got it right!

Loved the teaser, Fishmed--thanks a bunch! Got the answer about as fast as it took to read it, but loved it anyway!

Hope Mr. Negativity a few lines up finds another site to harrass; it's a real bummer to read mean comments.

Good one! Easy, but fun! My bro tried to figure out, but he couldn't even get the concept of what you are supposed to do! Nice!

ELEMENTARY. FAR TOO EASY FOR MY TASTE.

RAISE THE BAR AND GIVE IT ANOTHER GO.

Liked this one Fishmed. Got it fairly quick but still enjoyed it.

TOO EASY TO FIGURE OUT; NEED TO ADD MORE CHALLENGE!

Dec 04, 2006

Wow... I have to admit, I'm a little shaken because my first guess (after reading only "KEY" and not the other words that needed to be completed) was correct... maybe if that didn't happen, I wouldn't have found it so easy. Or maybe I still would've. Tough to judge.

Anyways, it was a neat idea for a teaser, and definitely a welcome break from my day (I think too much as it is!)

Really good teaser. Probably one of those that if you got it, you got it right away, otherwise you never would. I didn't get it. Loved it, Fish. Thanks for posting.

The answer was written in STONE.

I kept guessing as I skimmed down the words, but when I came to Gem, the answer came to me! - I like making jewelry with beads and gemstones, so that's what did it. Thanks for a fun teaser!
