The Rules of the Game — Change One Letter

Change one word into another by changing exactly one letter.

  • Addition
    word → world

  • Removal
    read → red

  • Substitution
    told → fold

  • Any of the above plus rearrangement
    real → lake ( r → k, then rearrange)

  • No limit on word length
    at → a

  • Rearrangement alone is not allowed
    deal → lead

  • Single words only (even if two words normally go together)

  • Proper nouns are not allowed
    tease → Texas
    (allowed, however, if it is also a regular noun, e.g., eve, mike, job, …)

  • If we reach a dead end (consensus that no new word can be found), go back to the most recent word that offers a way forward. (Dead ends are extremely rare. Be patient; usually someone will find an unexpected way out.)

Thank you for reposting the rules!
