Hahaha, nice one! I tried reading the words backwords first, and I read nroht, and somehow got north from that.
Haha, but fun to solve!

Interesting teaser thanks!

Mar 12, 2007

I thought it was hard. The answer was awesome though. I doubt I would have ever come up with anagrams of the directions.

Great teaser.

I didn't try very hard to get it. I gave up early; but I like it - it was a good one. I THINK I could have got it if I stayed with it. Thanks!

Mar 12, 2007

How was that hint helpful?
bkinneyAus*
Mar 12, 2007

Zaya, the hint was helpful because west, east, south, and north are all directions. The hint is to look at the directions again.

Good one
frozenrose_885Aus*
Mar 12, 2007

I thought it was because they all had a t somewhere in them

OhEmGeeA*
Mar 12, 2007

Mar 12, 2007

umm how about they are all nouns? isn't htat like the easiest answer?
breathesunshineAus*
Mar 12, 2007

I was thinking like OhEmGee, and figured it was something obvious.
Oh well I had fun trying!
LeafFan4life*
Mar 12, 2007

also they all have the letter T so that couldtechnically be the answer also.
fedex337Aus*
Mar 12, 2007

oops i read the directions again... i said that since it said what do the capitalized words have in common that it was that they were all capitalized...
GobyDude*
Mar 12, 2007

I was gonna say, if the answer was 'they're all capitalized' that would be really stupid.
soccermip337Aus*

That was a really good teaser. I loved it. It was fun but challenging at the same time!

This was a fun teaser. I was in a hurry this morning and didn't take the time to figure it out. But after knowing the answer and reading the hint I thought the hint was really clever! Good job!
deadsnakebitingAus
Mar 12, 2007

Fun teaser! After looking it over, I picked an alternate answer... all answers have the letter T in them.
QrystalAca**
Mar 13, 2007

AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! That was awesome!!!! I don't usually get these, and I was on the verge of being stumped, but then I looked again... and thought some more .... "Maybe they're anagrams of something," I thought. Yessssss~!!!

I LOVED THE HINT!!! That's what really cracked me up! DIRECTIONS!! HAH!!!!

Very good teaser!
vlermaAus*
Mar 14, 2007

Thanks for the hint. That made it very easy, but without it I was going in the wrong darned direction.

Mar 25, 2007

if anyone has read the Redwall series, this was ridiculously easy... this sort of puzzle was in one of them .... however, if i hadn't read those books, i probably wouldn't have has a clue....good job

It was not my thing, but glad it made some happy! Thanks for posting.

Apr 11, 2013

EThey are also all upper case.. simple..like me LOl
HABS2933Aca*
Apr 11, 2013

The only thing I could come up with was they all had a T in them, but knew it would not be that easy. I read the hint and did what I thought it wanted me to -reread the directions, then thought "yeah, okay how does that help?" Had to chuckle when I realised that directions did not mean instructions as I had thought but was virtually giving the answer! Good one Marc.

Apr 11, 2013

The hint made it harder for me to solve.
gaylewolfAus*
Apr 11, 2013

I didn't get it correctly, but I LOVED it!
Thanks for a good one!
thecatladycac**
Apr 11, 2013

I started by looking for words within a word: wet, or eat, or horn - then I checked for anagrams - and voila!! I didn't look at the clue until after I had read some of the comments - the clue was great! Loved the teaser!
ObilioAus*
May 18, 2013

I got it by reading the words backward as well, now I have to back and read the hint, sounds like it was a hoot Thanks!
