That was fun. I only got the first set and the fourth set. I just couldn't come up with the other two sets. Enjoyed the challenge!

That needed a little thinking, and a visit to a thesaurus, but it was fun.

2 were very easy, first & last. The other 2 were harder, but not too hard. A brain workout, thanks.

After going to the hint & seeing a couple of answers I realized I was not doing the puzzle correctly.

I got 2 of the ones I didn't see answers to.

Good Tough Teaser !!!

Very fun teaser! Not too hard and not too easy - but very thoughtful!

For the person who suggested "rolled, told, gold" would work for #4...no, it wouldn't. First of all, "rolled" isn't a shape, nor does it even fit the rules of the teaser. And gold isn't a gemstone.

Great stretch for the neurons! Well done!
I also got only numbers 1 and 4.
Thanks.

Great one! I never was able to get #1, but got the remaining 3 quickly. Would love more like this.

I only have one right and that was number 2. My husband is trying to talk to me and I'm trying to do this at the same time. Thanks for posting, nice teaser. Maybe next time I'll have more quiet time.

Monday~

I got the first one pretty easily, then my brain decided to stop working and I couldn't get the rest.
