@2big2fail: no it doesn't; at and facet don't have remotely similar definitions

For #1 feat and act also works.A feat by anyone is an act by them as well

For #1 feat and act also works.A feat by anyone is an act by them as well
e.g. a feat of kindness is an act of kindness.

Takes too long to figure out. It is a good one if you have the time.

quite tactical..act and facet can go through for #1
lukasiwicz*
Nov 24, 2013

Nope, perodavis, that won't work for #1, because "act" is not a synonym for "facet".

Enjoyable and just the right level of difficulty. Took no more than 5 minutes to solve.

I liked this one - got all but 1. Should have tried a bit harder and longer! Have a great day!

Easy and fun. Doubt it took much time or thought for you to make it, but I did say fun, so I guess that is the point, right? No creation points though, hehe.

And, @kasiecom, suggesting the given answer as an alternate answer is not exactly a significant comment.

Enjoyed it! Thought it'd be one of the ones where they all wind up on the same side, so was tickled when I started 'seeing' the answers as they are-

@eighsee - actually these do take some time and thought, first to come up with the concept, then to go through a thesaurus looking at hundreds of synonyms to find a pair that can exchange a letter and still be words.
