There once was a family of spies. One of them is celebrating his birthday, and the Mommy spy gave him gifts. The celebrant did not say anything; instead he gave this set of words:

toes
heat
ambition
nose
kiss
see
for
oneupmanship
route
tough

And because the family are spies, the Mom understood the message.

What was the message?

The answer just popped into my head. It was an easy one to solve, but I bet it wasn't that easy to construct. Kudos ! More please.

Jadeylove -- That's the hard 2nd part everyone is commenting about. The message continues in the last letters of each word going from bottom to top.

I got one right, break out the champagne. All by myself I figured this one out. So it must have been easy. Thanks for the wonderful teaser. I loved it.

liked it...it just seemed to leap out at me, my brain must have moved itself into 'puzzle solving' mode this morning.

Got it within ten seconds, which is not really normal for me. I think it could ahve been better. I think it would have been betterif the list of words anctually ment something. Keep them coming.

Like so many other got the first part, but whe i got to "The" I thought you had toi go to the "he" in heat and got lost from there. Great Teaser.

Nice! The end letters upwards were much less obvious

Glad to see I'm improving. The first time this teaser came around, I rated it between easy and hard. But this time, I'd have to rate it very easy, because it took me less than half a minute to solve it. (I'd long since forgotten the answer to the original, so had to solve it anew.) Practice may not make perfect, but it does help a lot.
