got it! Nice

The first teaser I've ever gotten without even peeking at a hint!

Not that your teaser is abnormally easy- it's great!

this was so easy it is like the easiest one ever it wasnt that challenging but i like having to think for a few seconds
Jun 28, 2010

A bit easy, but a lot of fun. Nice when they aren't all super hard.

Jun 28, 2010

Love it .. i must seek out your other ovnes - not seen I, II and III.. hehe..
Jun 28, 2010

That was a good one!
If it weren't for HY_ _ _ D,
it would have taken me a while to
figure it out!
Jun 28, 2010

Good one for the under 12 crowd. Way too easy for the adults.
Jun 28, 2010

I did have to think about it for a bit before it came to me. Good job GA. Thanks for posting.
Jun 28, 2010

I thought about it for a while, but when I saw LU___CANT I knew it.
Jun 28, 2010

The last one kind of gave it away, otherwise I'd probably never have guessed it.
Jun 28, 2010

I disagree with canse912, it WAS dead easy. Fun, though!
Jun 28, 2010

I found the instructions a little unclear. I didn't know if it had to be the same three letters and in the same order. I see it did, but that was unclear to me.
Jun 28, 2010

Wow...that was easy....
Jun 28, 2010

I thought that HY_ _ _D became HYDRID. But good one though!
Jun 28, 2010

Fun! The last word made it easy!
Jun 28, 2010

Took literally 3 seconds to get, but I loved it! Thx!
Jun 28, 2010

Fun! Got it with hybrid. Great teaser!
Jun 28, 2010

I agree with Doehead. I've only done this for a few days. They seem pretty easy, so far. Hoping this isn't the permanent level of difficulty.
Jun 28, 2010

I love the these kinda of puzzles, it's fun
Jun 28, 2010

I agree with bestgirl. It wasn't clear to me that the three letters had to be the exact same ones, arranged in the same order, in every case. I thought the three letters might be different in each instance. (The last two words should have tipped me off, but they didn't.)
Jun 28, 2010

Teaser of the Day, huh? Good job.
Jun 28, 2010

OMG! I got teaser of the day!! Thanks, Shadows. Sorry guys if it was confusing.. or too easy. But yay, I got a teaser of the day

Very good but if you want to make it more challenging take out hybrid. There aren't too many words that start with hy, end with d, and are 6 letters long. Even within that list, there are virtually none other than hybrid that are commonly known.
Jun 28, 2013

That did not take long at all. I prefer these to the ones I have to struggle with and they end up with a lame answer. This one was easy, but fun!
Jun 28, 2013

I skimmed over the (partial) words and got it with hybrid (I see many others did the same). Fun quiz even if it was pretty easy.
Jun 28, 2013

_ _ _ LLIANT !
Have a good weekend everyone.
Jun 28, 2013

I too skimmed the list, saw HYBRID and LUBRICANT and figured it out pretty quickly. I don't understand those who said the instructions were unclear - it said in the first sentence that they were the same 3 letters.
For those complaining about it being too easy - as has been pointed out before this site is for people of all ages and backgrounds, some of whom speak English as a 2nd or 3rd language.
Easy for some is not easy for all.
Knowing GA, I know how old he is (and by using simple math, how old he was in 2009 (when the teaser made its first appearance). Taking that into account, I'd say it was a job well done!
Jun 28, 2013

I agree with doehead. Good one for the young ones.
Jun 28, 2013

Liked your comment, jaycr!
Jun 28, 2013

I believe that was damn easy but nevertheless really fun. Great job have a nice weekend.
Jun 28, 2016

just too easy
Jun 28, 2016

For a moment I didn't think I was going to get it. Then I looked at the star rating and became concerned. All of a sudden the first one came to me and then I was home free. Liked it.!
Jun 28, 2016

stroke of luck.. 2nd one jumped out and fit all 10 sec.
