I liked this teaser too.I 've heard of all the phases, even #5. It's from the '90s.....early '90s.I'll be sure to check out the other teasers ,too(I'm not positive if rough&tumble was in the early, mid, or late nineties, but i know it was in the nineties). So, If my statement is incorrect, consider this my apology in advance. :D :wink:

Nice & Easy

Posted by HABS293307/23/15
I enjoyed this teaser though I think it was pretty easy for anyone whose first language is English and is likely familiar with all of these. May present a bit more of a challenge to the twenty-somethings and under (as some of these may have fallen out of usage) or those who are not native speakers. Overall, a great teaser

Posted by Zykezex07/23/15
Needed something I could figure out fast - thanksssss 8)

Posted by gaylewolf07/23/15
I loved this puzzle. I got them all and they were fun to solve. Thanks for posting! :wink:
