Had to get out the old pencil and paper for this one. Really great teaser.

I really liked this one! Got it right after I saw the hint. I'm fascinated by pallindromes--numerical and words.

Great teaser! I got it pretty easily

I am not good at these so I did not even try. Sorry, I can't comment on it for that reason, but glad to have you aboard!

easy fun thanks

Interesting teaser. I'm better with word puzzles but I liked the challenge! Thanks!

Might've spoiled it for myself by jumping to the page before trying to solve it, but it was a good one anyways!
