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

Maybe your car does 0 to 60 in 10 sec., but can you do this "0 to 10" in 60 sec.? Go on - get out the stopwatch!

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


1. Describing a 180 degree turn
2. Greek's 13th letter
3. e.g. Macadamia, pecan, or acorn
4. Large fish, usually found in small cans
5. Mum's sisters
6. Remove (someone) from position of power
7. Crazy person - or a container for #3!
8. Creatures of Greek mythology: half man and half horse
9. More loyal and devoted
10. Most slovenly or grubby; most earthy or vulgar

Very Good Teaser. I got temporarily stuck on #9, but got #10, then worked backwards. I enjoyed this one.

Got the first 7 in a few seconds; stuck on 8, got 10 with the hint, but couldn't get 8 or 9. Good teaser.

I got stuck on centaurs - which bothers me, because I should have known that. Loved this teaser! Nice work

Excellent teaser. Think it took me longer than 60 seconds, forget to time it.

I didn't time myself, but I took over 2 minutes. Had to look at the hint for #8. Great teaser, I loved it.

Good teaser, but for one who never saw such a "pyramid" before, the instructions are very poor, never clearly stating the object to accomplish.

Interesting quiz - very challenging. I think I was more up for it in 2010. Thanks for posting!
