I got too used to only changing the first letter, really had to use my noggin!! Excellent teaser!
May 13, 2008

I agree with all of the above. They have said it all. Thanks for posting.
May 13, 2008

May 13, 2008

great teaser. i got all but number three. i was saying screw, screen... no that isn't it. then i'd say cream uhhh.....

never got to curd. and cheese doesn't work either!!! LOL
May 13, 2008

Fun! Just hard enough to have to really think.
May 13, 2008

Great teaser , got all but #3 (can't believe I forgot its called "curd"). Question though, isn't curl an action, not a "thing"?
May 13, 2008

Great teaser. Didn't get them all which for me makes it fun
May 13, 2011

"Curl" is an action, but also a thing. You can have curls in your hair. Don't forget the girl with a curl in the middle of her forehead!
May 13, 2014

Got some, but not all. Good one!
May 13, 2014

Pretty classy, cnmne ....

TWO TOTD in a row !!!!!

I'm with Babe !!! (got a few, but all were fun. Gave it top FUN rating).

"newest teaser" AND TOTD

A fun and interesting teaser. Like others, I got some and missed some.
IT got 3 by figuring out curd first and working back from there.
Number 2 alluded me as, having worked as a pharmacy tech for many years, I would never have come up with potion for a mix of medicines.
May 13, 2014

I agree with avonma; an excellent teaser because you had to think a bit; nice job
May 13, 2014

I got the first and the last group. Completely zoned out in the middle. I either need a nap or more coffee.
May 13, 2017

I enjoyed this fun, entertaining and challenging teaser. I used the internet to look up synonyms for one of the words in each group and using that I was able to get all of the words for each group.
May 15, 2017

I got one from each group at least! Fun teaser!
