Same here. It's a good thing I'm impatient and looked at the answer, because otherwise I could have spent all day trying to solve this teaser without success.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, SO AFTER A LUCKY FIRST GUESS IT WAS CHILD'S PLAY.

FOR A CHANGE, THIS ONE WASN'T HALF BAD.

I hate people who type in caps.
The only one I got was Guilder. And-I couldn't for the life of me remember what a Guilder was! Lolol!

I kept trying to find instruments after seeing 'tuba'. Hahahaha, I didn't think Vial could be turned into an instrument...

Nice one!

That was fun! Um, I don't know if I should be embarassed for not getting it, or for realizing I didn't know a lot of those currencies!

Nice one... I got the theme from guilder, krone and peso, but they were the only ones I got. BTW phoenixtears - vial can be changed to an instrument! - viol, which is a bit similar to a violin

Apr 25, 2007

OK make that not very similar to a violin at all! Wikipedia has some good pictures of viols.

lol, I got a bit confused and thought I could add or take letters instead (as it only says change one letter) so I saw vial as viola and tuna as tuba

Sweet and nice.

Once i got Guilder the theme got established and i got a few more - peso, rial, baht. The rest i had to do a bit of google since the last time i did currencies was in 1985 !

This was a good one. Having worked for an International Airline, I have travelled a lot and as soon as I saw Builder, I got Guilder plus krone,peso, rial and bhat.... But not cedi, dong and kuna ... I learned something today, thanks Jazz......
Later Gators, kitty

Have to agree with just about everyone else. This was hard and I have no knowledge about currency from different countries, so really for me ;it was impossible. Learned something today. Thanks.
j9mattfieldAus*
Apr 25, 2007

WOW! I got guilder and peso, so I figured the currency theme. The others were not at all familiar to me. I spent more time on this than most, and found it enjoyable. Thanks for the fun and the learning experience!

Finally a good one.Thanks Jazz. A special note to PIZZAZZ2U who called me a jerk, it takes one to know one.

Apr 25, 2007

A fantastic one, Jazz! A slight bit on the tougher side, considering one would have to know several languages to be good with this one! You stumped me with this one! Keep them coming, though. I can work them out.

Apr 25, 2007

Thanks guys for your nice comments.

Doehead: Thank you! It's nice to see a positive comment from you at last. You also have a positive karma point now! You need to check out my other 216 teasers. You might one or two that come up to your standards!

You got me! I typically find these easy, but not today.

I was searching along the lines of instruments or sun but couldn't make it work. Luna, Dial and Tuba, Viol...

Apr 25, 2007

Once I saw builder I got it. Very easy to get the theme, but I didn't get most of the words. But a good one, as usual. Jazz, you da man. Keep them coming.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guilder , or http://www.guardian.co.uk/
pictures/image/0,8543,-10204318432,00.html , or http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9390568/ guilder

All say there is such thing as a Guilder. You'll have to remove spaces to have a look properly.

There probably is a difference between one and the other, but it's still right.

Well, at least I wasn't the only one thinking musical stuff. I couldn't see anything to turn Builder into, though, and so I gave up. I'm kinda glad I did though, because I wouldn't have known many of these, and wouldn't have looked them up either (I try not to do that most of the time). Oh well! Better luck next time!! I still rated this as fun.

Not too shabby. Strange... I thought it was musical equipment, too.
