Really fun! I missed the last three even with the hint! I think I just gave up too soon.

Omission is the one that gave me trouble. The rest were fairly easy with a little thought.

I really enjoy the Behead and Curtail series of puzzles. Always challenging enough to be enjoyable, yet not so hard as to not be fun! A hard balance to obtain once let along maintain among an entire series of puzzles. Great job again Marc

I knew I'd be miffed when I saw what I missed-But it was a good miffed, anyway! Loved them, and did manage to get most!

Enjoyable puzzle. I had to use my brain just enough to be satisfying, but not enough to create frustration!!
