Easy, but good fun. Might be better without the letter categorisation, though, to make it a little harder (if a little less organised). Thanks for the teaser!

I loved it!

A few easy, a few hard, a fun time.
Jan 17, 2010

fun, easy once the rules sunk in. Glad to see something new.
Jan 17, 2010

Good one, I missed chill-hill, thought maybe fridge-ridge
Jan 17, 2010

That was a lot of fun! Got stuck on cheat-->heat, but I enjoyed your teaser!!!
Jan 17, 2010

Very much fun. I really liked this one, but had a little trouble with a few of them. Good job.
Jan 17, 2010

I only got the last one..
Jan 17, 2010

Not as easy as I thought it would be! Fun!
Jan 19, 2010

Not my thing
I didn't really try
Apr 05, 2010

Fun! I got them all right with the hint except for 1-3. In my favorites!
Jan 18, 2013

I did not try either. The clues were a bit dense for me. I could have thought of easier ones for us stupid people.
Jan 18, 2013

Some answers came very quickly, other, not so much. I liked it.
Jan 18, 2013

Took awhile,but I got all of them. Enjoyable.
Jan 18, 2013

I love this one! Pretty easy, except for the cease-ease one.
Jan 18, 2013

nice one buddy.i feel so dumb now, having failed to get almost all except the last one.
Jan 18, 2013

fun missed #7 but really liked it. thx
Jan 18, 2013

Cool. For #1 I got core --> ore, because there is technically an outer and an inner core at the center of the Earth. Could that be another possible solution?
Jan 18, 2013

I enjoyed this one and then I realized I had done it before. I didn't remember it at all, so it was like a new one to me. Memory loss is fun !!!
Jan 18, 2013

I like fridge-ridge and I'd add 'stone-tone' to the last one.
Jan 19, 2013

Nice teaser; I very much enjoyed it. I had to give the most thought to number four - I kept wanting to start with the word "rise", but the right answer finally came to me! I look forward to more like this one.
Jan 20, 2013

I found this one much easier than the last one I did. Lots of fun, especially when I have no difficulty getting them. haha Good work.
Apr 29, 2013

Needed the hint for 3 and 8, I'm doing all Marc's teasers and quizzes, because I know they will be great
Jan 18, 2016

. Sensation of cold -> Local land elevation? Fridge Ridge- do I get partial credit?
