Didn't get some of these. But OK teaser.
May 24, 2008

This is one of the impossible teasers. No way to get it unless you have seen this before. Thanks for posting, it was fun to read.
May 24, 2008

really hard, i likey!!!
Great to have a challenge and of course i wouldve never of gotten it, clever, thanks!!
May 24, 2008

Great Teaser, but did not get it. Nice creation.
May 24, 2008

Sorry to differ, but I find this teaser pretty lame. As someone above says, no way to get it unless you've seen it before. Even then, the answers are pretty lame in themselves.
May 24, 2008

This by far the worst so called teaser to ever be published.
May 24, 2008

This is one of the worst teasers ever.

1. Is clever.
5. Is also clever.

But 2,3,4 are extremely weak.
May 24, 2008

I didn't get any of them. But, very creative in retrospect.
May 24, 2008

I think these are really neat! I didn't get any of them because I was trying to compare the letters themselves to the objects in the clues. Perhaps a hint would have helped, such as: you need to add these leters to words. But I enjoyed the teaser anyway after I read the answers. I love playing with words!
May 24, 2008

Oops--I meant letters. Thought I'd better correct my typo or someone will comment on my spelling.
May 24, 2008

I liked this, and found it very clever. BUT, like above posts, it would have been very hard to actually figure it out. Maybe a hint.... Still, very cute. Don't listen to the people who said you did a bad job.
May 24, 2008

Not a very good teaser...soz. Maybe you should try another one. Good luck next time
May 24, 2008

i hated this teaser. there is no way to figure out the answer, and it was too abstract. funny that when i have these kinds of teasers they are rejected.
May 24, 2008

I'm sorry so many people dislike this teaser. It was hard, true, but it was done well. I like the way it was set up.
May 24, 2008

Well I thought it was brilliant, I particularly liked 1 & 5, but the rest were good too, and no, I wouldn't have got it in a million years!
May 24, 2008

Impossible, but witty. I need an impossible problem every once in a while.
May 24, 2008

Super hard (I didn't get any of them)...but a great idea. It makes sense once you read the answers...but I can clearly see why people are frustrated. It's a tough teaser.
May 24, 2008

One of my favourites!! Perhaps it was too hard to do without any sort of hint, but it was different and enjoyable.
May 24, 2008

Very fun, but next time, I would add a hint. Very, very difficult!!! Clever, though! I hope you make more!
May 24, 2008

that was a gud one
May 24, 2008

Great teaser. Difficult yet fun. As someone else said, maybe next time a hint might be well used...
May 24, 2008

glad i gave up early.. wouldnt have figured out the answers anyways.
An example would have been useful
May 24, 2008

A Stretch at best... sorry.
May 24, 2008

I really didn't like this one - I agree that it was difficult only because it had no real logic or strategy-based solution. When I finally looked at the answer I was at first a little confused, thinking that I had missed something. Based on other responses I guess I didn't.
May 24, 2008

I Think this one is brilliant!!
May 25, 2008

i don't get it
May 25, 2008

Too hard for me. Would have tried harder if there were an example or a hint.
Jun 03, 2008

After reading the answers, I could see how clever this was, but I really had not a chance of solving it before reading the answer.

Very clever answers, but requires an example in the body of the teaser because it is so unique.

If you came up with this one, then KUDOS!
Aug 21, 2008

I didn't get any of these, but I really liked it.
Mar 06, 2009

wow that was a great teaser!
Oct 18, 2009

In a way, this teaser is better suited as a Situation teaser, as it would be better if one person knew the answer and could give hints to a group of people solving for it.
Jan 24, 2011

Sorry but I didn't like this. It was totally illogical and weird.
May 24, 2011

Well 5/5 for fun and 10/5 for difficulty!!
Enjoyed them but yeah I had no chance at all ha!
May 24, 2011

Wow, that is really clever! I loved the K one.
May 24, 2011

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL creations! Very difficult and VERY well done!!!
May 24, 2011

I don't see how anyone could get any of these without some kind of example. Overall, I liked the answers, though, so I think I would have liked it better if it was doable. Cheers.
