Yep. Again, you get a feel for it but it's why we keep a jug handy. Consistency is important.

On 50lb bags, 1 cup of water can be difference between just right and too thick/thin for the situation. Mix for 2 minutes, let it slake, mix again after 5-10

Here are two additional pictures. One is of the area where the 6 by 6 tiles were and the other shows the backs of two broken 6 by 6 tiles. Yes, the backs are clean, but they were on the wall. Is everyone happy with the pictures are now matching each other?

One final question...so what do I do now? There is a fairly large gap (about an eighth inch) in between the tile and cementboard. It's obvious all the factors previously mentioned played a part in this mess. Do I take the whole wall down (it's about 5' high by 3' wide) and start all over?

I would gently pry on more tiles. If more come off real easy, it may be best to take it all down.
