Good puzzle - a real thinker! I ended up getting them all, but after a lot of time and rearranging!

It was definitely by trial and error! Thanks!

This was a lot harder than it looked at first. The chalenge was there, I just wasn't up to it. Another great teaser, Jazz,

Great teaser. Took me a while to get started, but once I had a few the rest just fell into place. I just had to hope that 'antitrust' was a word when left with ant, it & rust at the end!

That was fun! I got them all, but it was nice to have to use the brain to figure it out.

Thanks!

That was awesome. I only figured it out by putting it into a grid format in a spreadsheet program. I really enjoyed it, super job!

fun, but hard.

Good One Jazz. I got all but two by just looking at the possibilities, but couldn't get Matador and Noonday without writing it all down and crossing out all the used letters to see what was left. You're batting a 1000 and I'm batting about 600. B But closing in....

Well...it's really gratifying to know that people actually attempt these teasers. Thanks for the great comments.

I really liked this one! Needs a bit of thinking but not too much, just my kinda teaser.

Will look out for more like this!

Nice one! I was lucky to not go down the wrong path with something like permeate. That there are other possibilities is what makes it challenging. Thanks!

very well-created... took me awhile to solve this one... had to shift my brain into overdrive to get them all... love to see another one

Good job, Jazz. I needed pen and paper to get this one, but it was fun.

I missed only matador; I'd done all the others in my head and didn't write anything to cross out and see what was left!! Gave me a headache, but it was fun!!

Hmm, why was I thinking "permeate?" Besides that, I got the rest

Not enough time this morning for this one.

Ran out of patience before I got them all done! Had fun, though!

I got 3 of them and then gave up because it was taking too long and I lost patience like a lot of others. It is a good one though.
