I enjoyed this great teaser, I did'nt get any of them but I had alot of fun trying. Then my 15yr. old grandson came in and solved it. Boy I really feel dumb now.

I'm with the majority so far. This was not as easy as it may appear. Fun and challanging teaser.

Oops! Didn't get #2. Too narrow minded in my American spelling habits to come up with some "oury" words. Very colourful (colorful) teaser Jazzy! Thanks for submitting.

I didn't realize armory could be spelled with a U. You Brits and Aussies are funny!

Excellent! Good job!

Thanks, I got all but two.

It was a lil bit too random... that's why some of them were tough to 'guess'. This would have been more fun, less random and hence more doable if the words were related by, say, meaning as well.

Great, but easy. The last one could be (felon & only)

I still don't understand it.

not very good at these teasers... but i still liked it... very nice... i only got the second and third ones

Feb 27, 2007

Great teaser! I had to think for a while on a few of them. Un-American spelling for the win!
jabdrAus*
Feb 27, 2007

Wow, I love word teasers but found this one very tough (Which means I didn't get any ) The answers made it seem simple, but so often, the answers WILL do that. Great teaser!! Would love to see 'missing letter 2 ' and try again.

Feb 27, 2007

Thanks for the positive comments. They are appreciated.

Feb 27, 2007

Oops...I forgot. Magnum: felON and ONly have 2 letters (ON); whilst my teaser required 3 letters.
breathesunshineAus*
Feb 27, 2007

Wow, fun trying but not my best outcome! Good one!

Owwww.... I only got the first one. That was tough!! Neat concept, though, and I'm sure the crosswordy-people out there really loved it!

oh and P.S.:
it would be Brits and Aussies and CANUCKS who would be "funny" spelling armoury the way it is in this teaser! Don't forget your neighbour to the north, scallio!

Great teaser! But I only got three ...

Nice teaser. Got them all.

Missed armoury...but fun teaser!

I found this one quite difficult. I only got 1 correct.
FatHeadAus*
Feb 28, 2010

Ha, little wonder I got the "armory" one wrong; it was done by an Aussie. The mention of "brackets" for parentheses should have tipped me off. *shrug* Oh well. Good teaser!

Feb 27, 2013

This one was kinda tough.
cutebugAus*
Feb 27, 2013

Solved everyone. Seems like I saw this one before. A big to my friend.

I missed two, but enjoyed them all!

I, too, found this quiz very challenging but it was a good one. Thanks for posting! Hi and keep warm - lots of new snow here!

Sometimes the stars just seem to align. For no reason that I am aware of, all but one just jumped out.

I really liked it and did pretty good at it too. armoury just wouldn't come to me.
the rest i got.

I got the first one and the last one - couldn't make my brain work any harder, so had to go ahead and check the answers!! Nice Teaser!!
