Jul 02, 2007

yeah I got differant words too but that might be because I was following the instructions and they clearly say to add a letter and SHUFFLE??? That is not what was done in the answer so I am soooo confused...think I'll go back to Trivia....
leftclickAau*
Jul 02, 2007

I got a different set of words too: U, UP, PUT, PUTS, POUTS, SPROUT, SUPPORT.

Lonewolf, it is possible to shuffle something back to how it was to begin with

I'm trying to figure what "Not including 'U'" means in the instructions.

Jul 02, 2007

Great teaser. Very clever,
and I'm also impressed with those of you who got it and used different words

I'd like more of these!

This was fun. I found several different words you could use also. But none of them filled the puzzle slots.
2ndhandroseca*
Jul 02, 2007

I tried following the instructions.
Came up with up sup to start &
gave up.

It seemed too easy & too many different combos possible.

Sorry, it was confusing.

THanks for submitting Tho

Good one! Very enjoyable!
evilfuzzymonste
Jul 02, 2007

This was enjoyable. I like that there are multiple answers possible.

I got almost exactly the one listed originally, except for some reason I imagined "SPOUT" as "STOUP" and hoped it was a word. That's what I get for not writing it down.
evilfuzzymonste
Jul 02, 2007

Come to think of it, I also got "PUTS" instead of "POUT" and then added the O.

I also did not understand the instructions and got a different list of words. Oh well, even thought it was wrong I had fun doing it thinking I was doing it right.
HABS2933Aca*
Jul 02, 2013

I had no problem with instructions or understanding what to do. My only issue with the puzzle is the large number of possible solutions. I thought those were frowned upon by the editors.
cutebugAus*
Jul 02, 2013

To many ways to this teaser makes it a very poor choice. I agree w/HABS.
gaylewolfAus*
Jul 02, 2013

I think that as long as you reach the final goal, any list of possibilities makes the puzzle a winner! I liked this one! Happy 4th of July week - everyone!

PS (Whether or not your 4th of July is a holiday!)
