A lot harder than it orginally looked. I've been saying that a lot lately but when I open the grid and see one like that, I tend to think "E-Z!" Not so on this one and with only 4 clues, it was solvable but not quickly! :)

I love the teasers with very few clues. This one was so simple, yet so complicated. Excellent job. :D

Congratulations! Absolutely the most difficult "small" grid puzzle I have ever done. Usually I don't do them, because they fall out on the first run through the clues. I had to go back and reread the clues many times. Keep them coming. :roll: :wink:

I think I thought about this one too much because I messed it up. A LOT. :oops:

This is by far the best small grid I've come across. I got it on the first line my second time through. Great job.
