Jul 06, 2010

I Had a difficult time figuring out the last one, read the hint and got it. Fun Thanks
Jul 06, 2010

Didn't have to wake up for this one. Pretty easy.
Jul 06, 2010

I enjoy these, probably because I almost always get them.
Jul 06, 2010

Needed the hint for these! Good job!
Jul 06, 2010

For some reason I had no problem with this one. Good teaser. Thanks for posting.
Jul 06, 2010

I enjoy this kind of teaser, but this one was pretty easy.
Jul 06, 2010

Front - Face and Die - Crash aren't really synonyms, are they?
Jul 07, 2010

Face/Front are actually synonyms in two completely different senses
"face" is the "front" of something, like a clock or a head; also, they both refer to a pretence.
For Die/Crash, they are near synonyms (as the instructions say they can be), they can both refer to a broken computer.

This one did not take long either. A lot of similar ones lately. Easy, but fun!
Jul 06, 2013

Easy as they come.
Jul 06, 2013

I'm glad there are similar ones lately, as I figure them out pretty well! Did need a hint on #4, but the whole thing felt juuuuusssst right!
Jul 07, 2013

Again, found it to be easy - but I love these teasers, so keep them coming!
Jul 06, 2016

Not only are we getting repeats, now we are getting similar ones rather often.
We seem to have had a run on language teasers lately.
Jul 06, 2016

I got them all relatively easily, but primarily because those were the words I found quickest. I expected to see a lot more than one (1) comment about Dire/Cash. I also don't see them as synonyms- which makes this one a little tricky.
