Wow, that's pretty hard! I didn't get any of them... Good brain exercise, though!
Feb 16, 2008

For 1st one, I had V[EIN RAC]K to get "carnie". I know it's a variant spelling of carny, but still acceptable.

It was to hard for me!
Feb 16, 2008

Excellent puzzler...makes u think in both directions at once

2 alternate answers are
trot cafe=decode
veto pack=capote
Feb 16, 2008

Ariel, your trot cafe results in "factor" Where does "decode" come into the picture? This puzzle was tricky - but I wish I had given it more time!

Word puzzles are my favorite - I was too impatient today.
Feb 16, 2008

Pretty ticky! What is tret?
Feb 16, 2008

Wow Jazz, another super hard one.Try as hard as I could, I couldn't come up with a single correct answer. All this on a Saturday morning at that. Thanks for the workout.
Feb 16, 2008

T[RET SAF]E 6-letter word: FASTER.

Great puzzle!
Feb 16, 2008

I also had Trot - Cafe - Factor and Veld - Duck - Cuddle

Admittedly veld is an alternate spelling for veldt.

Good Teaser
Feb 16, 2008

I didn't get it!!!!!!!!!!
Feb 16, 2008

Nice teaser! I had FASTER for the last one, but I still don't know what "tret" means.
Feb 16, 2008

too hard
Feb 16, 2008

Way too hard!!
Feb 16, 2008

This was quite a challenge Jazz.
I didn't get a single one. Maybe if I'd had more time. Excellent directions

What is Tret please?

Feb 16, 2008

Thanks for the teaser, even if I did not get it at all. I couldn't think. I think my brain is still asleep. It was really fun trying.

Feb 16, 2008

3d pers. s 1. 3d pers. sing. pres. of Tread, for treadeth.
n. 1. (Com.) An allowance to purchasers, for waste or refuse matter, of four pounds on every 104 pounds of suttle weight, or weight after the tare deducted.
(I never heard of before either...)

*Meant to include this link (this "forum" doesn't work the way others do...):
Feb 16, 2008

Very nice!!
Feb 16, 2008

Well, I can't blame it on being too early in the day. Dinner and dishes are done. The directions and example were right on My brain just wasn't Your teasers are always the best , Jazz. Thanks
Feb 16, 2008

Thanks guys.

Sorry about 'tret'. Thanks composer for the meaning. It's an old word, not used much these days. It has a nice ring to it don't you think?
Feb 17, 2008

I thought it was hard and not fun. Guess I'm just not willing to waste a lot of time on trial and error for something so useless.
Feb 18, 2008

Yeah...I don't know TRET is in the dict. (but my spell checker still flags it)
Feb 19, 2008

i couldnt get #2, and i also got TROT-CAFE=FACTOR for #3, but for #1 i came up with VEIN-TICK=INCITE... also acceptable ... once again, another outstanding teaser jazz ... keep them coming
