I found this one lots of fun
And a bit hard too

This is such a clever idea! This must have taken a ton of time, great job
Jan 06, 2011

Excellent teaser. No way would I have figured this out on my own. Thanks for posting.

Sorry, I don't think this is a good teaser. It seems to me it was more an exercise in cleverness than something one could solve by thinking. Just my opinioin.
Jan 06, 2011

Very nice. Got this one rather quickly, but fun!
Jan 06, 2011

Hard but fun!
Jan 06, 2011

Fun, thank you.

Back in the stone age, I was raised on "if you can't say something nice,....", so I can't comment on bestgirl's comment. (Will someone else read my mind and post please?) Meanwhile, the teaser was awesome; I could not figure it out even with the hint. Amazing that that shift works out for all those pairs of words!!

Clever, I'm glad the hint wasn't something really helpful but just a bit more to go on. Got it quite quite quickly but I like the teaser
Jan 06, 2011

Okay wordmama I'll comment. I agree with bestgirl 100%.
Jan 06, 2011

Got it right away after the hint!! Loved it!!
Jan 06, 2011

Very nice!
Jan 06, 2011

I found it thanks to the last group of words. Pretty Fun.

I feel like I was getting close, but I gave up too easily because I was afraid it would be something stupid. In the end, though, this was very clever, very doable, and I'm only upset with myself that I stopped thinking about it. Very nice teaser!

Good puzzle! I got v close. First, I thought all r 4 letter words; second - they r in alphabetically descending order. Once, I found these 2 common traits, i didn't think further! Well I'm right too ;)
