I'll probably try them, but, I also subscribe to GAMES magazine, so, I guess it is par for the course.

Is Games magazine still around? I used to love that (even though I couldn't figure out about 90% of the puzzles).

If you look at the very back of its eyes, the very very back, no farther than that, much farther, go down now, ok back again, some more, nearly there, yep that's a bezoar you just found in its eye.

Oh look there are answer keys. And the answers within are the suckiest things that ever sucked.

Oddly enough, the answer to the goat one was my nickname in high school.

I like how there's an unstated assumption in number 2, part 2 (FREE->JAIL) that the letter change has to result in an actual word. Otherwise (and by the rules)\ you can do it in 4 steps.

Goats butt things (and each other) with their heads. Hence the term "butter" or "a butter". I know, I think it's pretty lame , too. Must be some kind of Depression Era humor.

There is a then/ than error in the progressive anagrams puzzle, therefore I am smarter than anyone from 1935.

I call the Depression Era the Obama Era to prevent confusion with the Great Depression.
