smarty???,,,last letter???
lots o fun, but easy
fishmedAus*
Feb 19, 2006

They were all meant to be the last word. This was part of what was to make it easy to figure out. Glad you liked them.
JessicaLynn*us*

I didn't get binge, but it was a very good teaser!

I missed "cloud!" Cheez! That was the easiest one,too. Oh well.

BORING BORING BORING. WHERE'S THE CHALLENGE. A 12 YEAR OLD COULD DO IT.

Got this one. Found it fun. Easier once you sopt the pattern that it's always the last word (this not detailed in instructions) Thanks very much

Quite an easy one for an anagram lover like me. If the answer-word was not at the end of the sentence, it would have been better! However, I loved the cleverly worded sentences.
lukeschettAus*
Mar 17, 2006

Even though I only got 4, it is the best puzzle that I have seen! w00t!
smarty008Aus*
Mar 17, 2006

if tou make another one try not to make it only the last word.


good teaser though

coachpisco*

EXCELLENT! Very well done. I enjoyed doing it.
coachpisco*
Mar 17, 2006

Imurray. Cut the guy a break. It was well done. Admit it.
nathaliaAjm*
Mar 17, 2006

Very good teaser but tire in #3 should be tyre. (At least that's how it's spelt this side of the world - I know sometimes American speeling differs from British English)

Had fun though

leave it to me to make a "spelling" error while commenting on a "spelling " error

Pretty good teaser. Challanging, but not too challanging. Good job.

Unique. The 1st one dealing with anagrams w/ sentences I've seen so far.
iteachkidsAus*
Mar 17, 2006

GREAT teaser, Fish! I guess I just love WORD STUFF. Anagrams are always fun, and your sentence clues added lotsa FUN. Thanx!
kimberlykayAus**
Mar 17, 2006

Great teaser Fish....I would like to see more of these.
Fasil*
Mar 17, 2006

Got them all except dread. Would have been tougher if the words were in a different place for each sentence. It was fun anyway though, goodjob Fishmed.
whisperingwitch
Mar 17, 2006

nice one,but all the words were anagrams of the last of the sentence
xolilangel827oxAit*

i did not get dread but i did get the rest i thought this was gret..good job thank you
Vigo95Aus*
Mar 17, 2006

i liked this one .it was really easy , though . perhaps i would have been more challenging if words to work with weren't all at the ends of the sentences and we had to search for the word we needed to unscramble .
then again , i've never submitted a teaser so i'll be quiet for now !!!!! so thanks to those of you who do submit them so the rrest of us can have fun !
kikadez*us*
Mar 17, 2006

no it was kind of hard
rachellanders**

I'm not very good at anagrams. But it was a good teaser!
realm2346*

It took me a while to get "binge" and "saber", but itwas fun and enjoyable.
kman613**
Mar 17, 2006

i really liked this one. got 5 out of 6 (couldn't get the binge one).. keep em comin'
tahoegiles*
Mar 17, 2006

Mar 17, 2006

Fishmed is the man! Great teaser. Just hard enough to make me think, yet easy enough to make me work for the answers. If all the complainers were as good at writing the teasers as they are about griping, just think of all the great teasers we would have. Come on people, constructive critics only, please.
eabreu92*us*
Mar 18, 2006

funny enough, i did get #2...

however, i couldn't get #3 or #5...

but i did get get the rest right...

Good one Fish - loved it - I see this is #2 I'm off to find #1, #3, #4, etc (how many have you done btw?)
ViaTunisi*

Got them all! Very fun-- I loved it!
cloughmeAws*
Mar 17, 2007

I wish you hadn't made it the last word in each sentence...

made it extremely easy...

Good job overall though!
scallioAus*
Mar 17, 2007

I wish I would have figured out that it was always the last word of each sentence! Duh! Don't know how I had missed that! I thought this teaser was much tougher than it initially looked! Loved it!
wordmama*
Mar 17, 2007

Missed sheet but got ALL the others!!

Love this type! ty fishmed!
AbsurdHero*us*
Mar 17, 2007

I really enjoyed this one. Good job!
anion*
Mar 17, 2007

I thought it was pretty good. Having the last word in the sentence made it doable but I still couldn't get Sabre. I usually don't do well with anagrams. Great Job!!!
doeheadAus**
Mar 17, 2007

I found this quite easy.I guess that is why my IQ is over 160.
puttumupus*
Mar 17, 2007

nice one had to do a little brain strain this morning
Pizzazz2uAus*
Mar 17, 2007

A wee bit too easy, but still fun to work out! Careful about giving the answers in your comments, kids! It gives the answers to the others! Otherwise, this must have been one of your easiest efforts, Fish! But, it is great for the pre-schoolers.
katjojoAus*
Mar 17, 2007

I thought this was really fun!! Took a moment to figure out, but it was quite enjoyable.
kitty728Aus*
Mar 17, 2007

nothing fishy about this one, fishmed! very easy and also i think sabre is only spelled one way- sabre , i may be wrong - it happens... lol... keep em coming, make em harder, tks,
later gators...
jcann*us*
Mar 17, 2007

I really liked this one. I didn't find it that easy because I didn't catch on that the anagram was the last word, even when I had figured a a couple of them out. I might have gotten them all if I had realized that. I think making up these teasers must be harder than solving them. Good job!
GobyDude*
Mar 17, 2007

4/6 I missed tread and dread
saradoveus*
Mar 17, 2007

Very interesting teaser
i didn't get a lot of them but I liked them anyway
Thanks for this really good teaser
Trishgal*us*
Mar 17, 2007

Well I got them all i really liked doing it , it gave my brain a workout ,course i did not notice the position of the anagrams and it was about right what can you say there. it helped youngsters,ibet
speedqueenkmwAus*
Mar 17, 2007

anagrams are fun.
FatHeadAus*
Mar 17, 2007

I figured that is was the last word each time. I was right, but that still didn't help with #2, #3, and #5.
bradon182001*us*
Mar 17, 2007

Liked this one even better this time around. Still one of my favorites.
OhEmGeeA*
Mar 17, 2007

Cryptic Crossword clues, don't you just love them?
frozenrose_885Aus*
Mar 17, 2007

Good Job, but I don't really know what amagrams are. I still figured them out.
breathesunshineAus*
Mar 17, 2007

I enjoyed doing this one. I might just go find others like this too! Keep 'em coming!

Pizzaz2u, you have to click on the comments to see them. I've never read the comments before the answer....


Anyway good teaser!

Easy, but really enjoyable. Thanks
MadelulabelleAus*

Hey Imurrey, you were right. A 12 year old CAN do it. (although my IQ is over 130...)
jabdrAus*
Mar 18, 2007

Another enjoyable one, Fishmed. Thanks

Good one!

Mar 20, 2007

Glad you liked it.
QrystalAca*
Mar 21, 2007

Hey! that was FUN! I didn't even notice that the anagrams were all the last word (although I did start suspecting that each anagram was going to be 5 letters long).

Anyways, until I thought for a little longer, I was CERTAIN that the dangerous "thing" for an alcoholic to begin was "th'gin!"
measle1025Aus**
Mar 24, 2007

i love it!
one of the best teasers so far. tricky at first but after spending some time on each i got all except the second one
qwertyopiusa*
Apr 01, 2007

Why all the anagrams are at the end of the sentence? That makes everything easier...
lilrena4everAus*

I got'em all except "saber."
That was easy, but FUN.
sunnybonghits*
Mar 17, 2010

Cute teaser. I probably would have liked it more, though, if it wasn't always the last word in the clue.
EliosAus*
Mar 17, 2010

Very entertaining. As others have said, these were made easier by the fact that the words were always the last in the sentence ... Still enjoyable though!
jaycr*us*
Mar 17, 2013

#2 I couldn't get past "gin".
Babe*
Mar 17, 2013

Got them all! Took a bit on one of them, but it just came to me at the last try and this is one of the best teasers that I liked.
Good one!
gaylewolfAus*
Mar 17, 2013

I liked this one too- thanks for posting!
cutebugAus**
Mar 17, 2013

Very easy. Look at this one HABS,it is almost a new one by the editors standards.
HABS2933Aca*
Mar 17, 2013

lol cutebug! You are right this one isn't old enough to drive, drink or vote! It can't even get into a PG movie on its own yet!
I agree that the teaser would have been much more challenging had the words been staggered and not at the end of the sentences. Still fun though!
Maggiethe8th*us*
Mar 17, 2013

fun! thanks, fishmed!
thecatladycac**
Mar 17, 2013

I only missed "binge" because I didn't stick with it long enough to strain my brain to try to figure it out! Yes, the teaser was easy, but I liked it! And once I figured out that the anagram word was the last one in the sentence, I was happy to not have to strain my brain to figure out which word to work on! I was feeling pretty lazy today
iggy39Aus*
Mar 17, 2013

Thanks I got them all correct, doesn't happen very often so I rated it very easy. Has to be for me to get them all.
Gwendalla*us*
Mar 17, 2013

I really enjoyed it! Got all but #5 and #3.

Glad you guys liked them. Sometimes you gotta put in an easy one.
