Wow, that's pretty hard! I didn't get any of them... :oops: Good brain exercise, though!

For 1st one, I had V[EIN RAC]K to get "carnie". I know it's a variant spelling of carny, but still acceptable.

:lol: Excellent puzzler...makes u think in both directions at once :lol: 2 alternate answers are trot cafe=decode veto pack=capote

Posted by gaylewolf02/16/08
Ariel, your trot cafe results in "factor" Where does "decode" come into the picture? This puzzle was tricky - but I wish I had given it more time! :wink: Word puzzles are my favorite - I was too impatient today. :oops:

T[RET SAF]E 6-letter word: FASTER. Great puzzle!

Posted by RunAmok02/16/08
I also had Trot - Cafe - Factor and Veld - Duck - Cuddle Admittedly veld is an alternate spelling for veldt. Good Teaser

Nice teaser! I had FASTER for the last one, but I still don't know what "tret" means.

Posted by 2ndhandrose02/16/08
This was quite a challenge Jazz. I didn't get a single one. Maybe if I'd had more time. :D Excellent directions What is Tret please? :-? Thanks.

Posted by mondayschild5902/16/08
Thanks for the teaser, even if I did not get it at all. I couldn't think. I think my brain is still asleep. It was really fun trying. Monday~ :oops: :oops:

*Meant to include this link (this "forum" doesn't work the way others do...): "http://www.thefreedictionary.com/tret"

Posted by jabdr02/16/08
Well, I can't blame it on being too early in the day. Dinner and dishes are done. The directions and example were right on :roll: My brain just wasn't :cry: Your teasers are always the best , Jazz. Thanks :) :)

Posted by jazzmusician4602/16/08
Thanks guys. :D Sorry about 'tret'. Thanks composer for the meaning. It's an old word, not used much these days. It has a nice ring to it don't you think? :lol:

Posted by smartymarty02/17/08
I thought it was hard and not fun. Guess I'm just not willing to waste a lot of time on trial and error for something so useless.

Posted by ariel77702/18/08
:cry: Yeah...I don't know TRET either..it is in the dict. (but my spell checker still flags it) I prefer TROT CAFE = FACTOR :D

Posted by dogg6pound902/19/08
i couldnt get #2, and i also got TROT-CAFE=FACTOR for #3, but for #1 i came up with VEIN-TICK=INCITE... also acceptable :D ... once again, another outstanding teaser jazz :D ... keep them coming :D :D :D
