Solved it. Nice to see a new teaser. :D :D :D

I really do like these teasers, but I wouldn't mind seeing some that are a little more difficult - maybe by rearranging some letters after moving the one letter?

Good one! :D Thanks for posting!

#'s 1 & 4 followed the example of moving the letter from left to right so I got those. When I succumbed to looking at the hint, I realized the letter could also move from right to left; if I'd known that first, I wouldn't have needed the hint to solve the others! Ultimately fun!

I needed the hint for #3. I really like this kind of teaser. You don't have to make them harder for me! :D

Good teaser, makes a lot of sense. :) But, I must admit, I prefer trick teasers to these kinds.

:wink: :evil: Finally, I got a few. Patience is a Virtue, so true. I love these teaser, Right or Wrong. 8)

Good one and got them all. Pay no attention to the person who wants them harder. These are just fine! :D

I also enjoy these, they are solvable without being too easy. I solved all but #3 readily, but, for some reason (that I cannot fathom), needed the hint for that one. Once I got the hint, it was simple but I just couldn't see it before that. Though I enjoy your behead and curtail puzzles, I enjoy these more as they are a bit more difficult without being impossible.

A bit on the easy side, although very interesting. :D :D

For #2 I used carve and cut. It works too.

Posted by katamaster06/04/13
Never mind my last comment. I was looking at the question as the answer.

Very fun teaser. I had to think pretty hard for number 3 - but I did get them all. Keep coming up with these (you have the hard part!) Thanks :D :lol: :D
