I thought it should be pointed out that one of the puzzles has a seriously incorrect piece of information in it that lead me astray for a while and might do the same to others. So be warned!

We thought the clues vs the answers were inconsistent, which is disconcerting. if the idea is to connect one thought with two similar but different things, then do that. keep it consistent.

Three were great and consistent and two were not so much.

Try it again! Great idea.

No problems here. Thought it was a fun puzzle, enjoyed it and would like to do more on this theme.

I liked the concept and the variety, but I wasn't crazy about the way the answers were formed. I also got the error TallActor referenced: It threw me as well, despite his warning.

We apologize for the factual error in the word puzzle. By the time it was discovered, we were unable to reach the author for consultation. We decided that it would be fairest to players to allow the word puzzle to run as is rather than to correct it at a late hour.

We do work hard to proofread word puzzles before they go live, but sometimes errors are overlooked. Thank you for your understanding.

If you notice errors in a WP in the future, please submit a support ticket, and we will do our best to investigate and resolve the problem.

Very challenging puzzle.

Kudos to the three who bested 25 and to the very clever author

It was an interesting idea --took me a while to crack.
I'm not sure it was perfectly executed but you know, omelets and eggs....

By coincidence I had planned an almost identical puzzle -- back to the drawing board I suppose.
