I love it!! Though, even with all the right letters, and pretty much knowing the answer, I still couldn't figure out the right way to spell switserland.....um..... ......

Isn't LAZE a word? It's hard to figure this out when you can't even get the original unscrambling right!


I'll own the next one!

I got the five words ...then got stuck wondering how to spell New Zealand. Couldn't come up with Switzerland even after I read the hint!

Great puzzle! Yes, LAZE is a word, but having a choice of two words in that one spot made the puzzle more interesting!! I worked around it and found that ZEAL was the word needed. Fun!

Rats got all but Bias. I did figure out "switzerland" that was a snowboarder.

Good teaser, though I got switzerland after just unscrambling the first two and looking at "wrzel"

I didn't get this one, but I came close. I was also trying to get New Zealand, but couldn't fit the t in there. Fun teaser. Next time.....

Good teaser, had my mind ticking like a Swiss watch, just glad it wasn't Germany. Switzerland was the wealthiest country in Europe and still one of the costliest. Good chocolate ain't cheap.

Once I realized that the country would require a W & a Z, my gray matter got a workout.

Very outstanding teaser! I had to use the hint, and the answer fell right into place. Relaxing enough to be fun! Keep up the dynamic work.

I enjoyed it and I got it solved That added too my enjoyment, but the teaser was a brain workout -not too hard though especially since I just got up.!!! Thx

I guess "azle" isn't a word after all. But it is a city in Texas.
And I still got it right.

I, too, got lost in New Zealand for a minute. Nice.

unscrambling the listed words was easy. Coming up with the country was a little harder as I had fixated on New Zealand, but there was a 'T" in the name. Finally, I figured it out.

I disagree about the second word which could be unscrambled as laze or zeal. I think you should only be able to unscramble a word in one way. What if every word could be unscframbled in more than one way, and how would you know this was the case or not? You'd have to consider so many variables, it would be next to impossible, not to mention no fun. But that's just my opinion.

This was easy! I got it on my FIRST try (which is also a first ). I loved the puzzle, very fun.

I loved this one. I got all the clues but couldn't figure out Switzerland yikes!

More alternatives to an anagram word make the teaser challenging! This one was a very good one. Thanks - I enjoyed it!

Good Job!

Good fun but I think 12 seconds is a bit short to unscramble the words, select the letters and rearrange the into Switzerland. Once you got LAND, it was easy.

Nice job chidam11. I thought it weas a lot of fun. And I did get all of it without looking at the clue. But of course next time I will probably completely fail. More please?

way to easy

Awesome!! I admit I started to worry when I saw both LAZE and ZEAL, but the fact that two of the three letters that are used in the scramble really helped. In the end I thought it added nicely to the challenge.

I don't know exactly how I got Switzerland, especially since I had a "Z or A" as one of my 11 letters, but after DIANTSLERWA... LAWRENTSIDA... RAWTSDINZEL... it just came to me. Yay me!

I absolutly loved it! Great Job! I love word jumbles and geography so these teasers are right up my alley! I got all the unscrambles correct and when I saw the letters to be used for the country I felt overwhelmed! But then I said to myself, "Come on you can do it!" And I got it faster than I thought! For some reason I always get the correct unscrambling and never even think of the other options.

As to nsamitgirls or whatever your name is, What is your problem?! Grow up!

Also tried to guess New Zealand, but saw the letters weren't right. After I got it, and looked at the answer, I skimmed the explanation, looking for the correct answer. When I saw "WRZELTNAIDS", I was THIS CLOSE to submitting a "correct this teaser"!! Good thing I kept reading..... haha!!

Easy as eating a chunk of SWISS cheese,but not quite as good.

EZ PZ. Knew afte zeal it was either Swaziland(no longer a country is it?, New Zealand, Mozambique, or Switzerland. Fun teaser!!

Sep 25, 2009

Very easy, but fun just the same. I like jumbles and sometimes get the final answer before I finish unscrambling the first words.
Had fun, and loved all the comments.
