Starting with a one-letter word, add a letter and rearrange the letters to produce the next word. A clue is given for each.

Maybe your car can do 0 to 60 in 10 seconds, but can you do 0 to 10 in 60 seconds? Get out the stopwatch! This one is a little easier than the previous ones ...

The hint gives the starting letters of the even numbered words.

1. Roman one
2. Ratio of 'circumference : diameter' for circles
3. Edible homonym of #2
4. Long poem or film about heroic deeds
5. 'There's a _____ on his head' (a reward)
6. Give the main points of a story
7. Contents of Cordon Bleu book
8. Money taken in from sales
9. Likely to cause the most unpleasant sensations of fear
10. Particular, belonging separately to each

Sure I've never been first!

I got 1--5 plus 7 on my own, 6 & 8 with the hints; couldn't get 9 or 10 at all. Thanks!

You're right that this one's easier than previous teasers, which made it very enjoyable for me as opposed to just frustrating. These aren't my forte, but I had a good time with this one. Thanks.

Very enjoyable and also very easy.

I love these but didn't do very well; started out ok but used "piece" instead of "price" [on his head]. Got "recipes" but it was pretty sloppy after that.

Thanks anyway!!

Not too difficult. Fun.

Got 'em all, but didn't find this puzzle particularly easy after RECEIPTS (kept wanting to make the next word SCARIEST, though it had the same number of letters as RECEIPTS), and certainly not after CREEPIEST. Kudos to all who thought this was an absolute piece of cake.

Nicely done! Things got messy when I got stuck on "Precis," quickly solved "Recipes", and then spent the next 10 minutes trying to figure out how one gets from "Price" to "Recipes." I just found a new word to add to my vocabulary lessons!

Creative and exciting teaser.

I didn't do too well on it, but I enjoyed it and gave it top ranks for FUN !!!

I liked, especially, the visual "symmetry" of the puzzle as it formed. VERY artsy.

Another puzzle:

What do the following acronyms stand for?

F-R-A-K-K

L-E-B

B-C-W

PM me if you know one or, else, list it here in comments.

(and it's NOT an intrusion on this fine teaser ... in fact it's quite relevant)

7/10 Got a headache on 6, 9, & 10. Gave up and peeked at the clues, still no help.

A little better than 3 yrs. ago: got 1-5, used 7 to get 6, got 8, still not 9 or 10.

Note to Lukasiwicz. As you said to me yesterday, it is a matter of taste. I do agree with you today though, as I did not find it that easy either, but then I am a lot older than you and have more difficulty on this type of teaser. Most of the time I do pretty well for a 94 year old lady. Thanks for visiting with me. I enjoy it.

Babe- 94 is only a number, it's all in how you feel. You are an amazing person.

Babe, I'd say you're doing well for a person even a third your age. When, in another 12 years -- I should live so long -- I reach the age you have already reached, I will deem myself a very lucky fellow if my cognitive skills have held up half as well as yours appear to have done.

Fun and enjoyable teaser; found the longer words more difficult and only got 6/10. Never heard of "precis".

I'm another one that got stuck on Precis - not a word I've seen before. Oh well!
