wow....to hard for me, but I tried like crazy. Good one, but tough! Thanks!

Posted by craniac04/25/07
Same here. It's a good thing I'm impatient and looked at the answer, because otherwise I could have spent all day trying to solve this teaser without success.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, SO AFTER A LUCKY FIRST GUESS IT WAS CHILD'S PLAY. FOR A CHANGE, THIS ONE WASN'T HALF BAD.

I hate people who type in caps. The only one I got was Guilder. And-I couldn't for the life of me remember what a Guilder was! Lolol!

Posted by Phoenixtears04/25/07
I kept trying to find instruments after seeing 'tuba'. :roll: Hahahaha, I didn't think Vial could be turned into an instrument... :lol: Nice one!

Posted by amyteachescali04/25/07
That was fun! Um, I don't know if I should be embarassed for not getting it, or for realizing I didn't know a lot of those currencies! :oops:

Posted by leftclick04/25/07
Nice one... I got the theme from guilder, krone and peso, but they were the only ones I got. BTW phoenixtears - vial can be changed to an instrument! - viol, which is a bit similar to a violin :D

Posted by leftclick04/25/07
OK make that not very similar to a violin at all! Wikipedia has some good pictures of viols.

Posted by kauphi197604/25/07
Sweet and nice. Once i got Guilder the theme got established and i got a few more - peso, rial, baht. The rest i had to do a bit of google since the last time i did currencies was in 1985 ! Genie-Ass

Really difficult... nice job! Mario

Posted by KingArthur04/25/07
Wow...terrific teaser! :D

Posted by WaterlooRoad0004/25/07
Ingenius is all I can say! :D :D :D

Posted by panjunzhe04/25/07
That was good :D

Posted by jazzmusician4604/25/07
Thank you so much. I appreciate your comments. :D

Posted by coolpainter04/25/07
You can bet your bottom dollar I got this one wrong....excellent !!

Posted by kitty72804/25/07
This was a good one. Having worked for an International Airline, I have travelled a lot and as soon as I saw Builder, I got Guilder plus krone,peso, rial and bhat.... But not cedi, dong and kuna ... I learned something today, thanks Jazz...... Later Gators, kitty :lol: :lol: 8) :wink: :wink: :D

Posted by puttumup04/25/07
:o i dont like those kinda tease...so i didnt try to solve this one. :D

Posted by bradon18200104/25/07
Have to agree with just about everyone else. This was hard and I have no knowledge about currency from different countries, so really for me ;it was impossible. Learned something today. Thanks. :o

Posted by j9mattfield04/25/07
WOW! I got guilder and peso, so I figured the currency theme. The others were not at all familiar to me. I spent more time on this than most, and found it enjoyable. Thanks for the fun and the learning experience! :D

Posted by doehead04/25/07
Finally a good one.Thanks Jazz. :wink: :) A special note to PIZZAZZ2U who called me a jerk, it takes one to know one. :evil: :evil:

Posted by Pizzazz2u04/25/07
A fantastic one, Jazz! :wink: A slight bit on the tougher side, considering one would have to know several languages to be good with this one! You stumped me with this one! Keep them coming, though. I can work them out. 8) :lol:

Posted by jazzmusician4604/25/07
Thanks guys for your nice comments. Doehead: Thank you! It's nice to see a positive comment from you at last. You also have a positive karma point now! :o You need to check out my other 216 teasers. You might one or two that come up to your standards! :D

Posted by jazzmusician4604/25/07
I meant to say: You might find one or two that come up to your standards! :D

Posted by hradilv04/25/07
Excellent - difficult, but fun. Thanks for the challenge! :D

Posted by jamy40004/25/07
Really fun but hard still great though. :D

Posted by babycee04/25/07
never would have guess. :oops: i thought it was a car.

Posted by scallio04/25/07
You got me! I typically find these easy, but not today. I was searching along the lines of instruments or sun but couldn't make it work. Luna, Dial and Tuba, Viol... :oops:

Posted by auntiesis04/25/07
Once I saw builder I got it. Very easy to get the theme, but I didn't get most of the words. :roll: But a good one, as usual. Jazz, you da man. :lol: :lol: Keep them coming.

Posted by colettavw04/25/07
I thought it was going to be soap types (Dove, Zest, Dial, Tone!) Enjoyed it!

Posted by 2ndhandrose04/25/07
I'm with a lot of you, not up on foreign currency. Something 4 me to study. I was going for Code Test Dial Tune (electronics)? :oops: Good one Jazz, had a lot of fun with it.!! Keep em comin' eh? Next time a subject I know. :roll: :lol: :lol: :wink:

Posted by cloughme04/25/07
Great! :wink:

Posted by cooltigerr104/25/07

Posted by kilyourfriends04/25/07

Posted by ViaTunisi04/25/07
too hard for me

Posted by tamjp04/25/07
Clueless Colonial me :oops: I was stumped. I really like the format though! Good job :wink:

Posted by Odessius04/25/07
They always leave me with a smile :o how is anyone suposed to get one of these?

Posted by grams6004/26/07
I have to start getting of the house more, and maybe the country. I did not get any one of them. Boy do I feel stupid. :oops: :oops: :cry: :cry: :cry: :( :wink:

Posted by grams6004/26/07
I forgot to say that I enjoyed trying yo solve it anyway. That was a teriffic teaser. loved it. :) :oops: :) :wink:

Posted by grams6004/26/07
me again, before anyone else says it, I need to spell better. but take pity I'm old :lol: :lol: :lol: :-? :wink:

Posted by Qrystal06/11/07
Well, at least I wasn't the only one thinking musical stuff. I couldn't see anything to turn Builder into, though, and so I gave up. I'm kinda glad I did though, because I wouldn't have known many of these, and wouldn't have looked them up either (I try not to do that most of the time). Oh well! Better luck next time!! I still rated this as fun. :)

Posted by jazzmusician4606/12/07
Thanks guys :D

Posted by UlsterCharlotte01/14/08
Not too shabby. Strange... I thought it was musical equipment, too.
