Change a Letter - 5 letter words

Postby hgblade » Fri Mar 10, 2017 1:41 am

Hi all

Following on from the original 'Change a Letter' thread this is the start of the 'deluxe' version, where the target word will be 5 letters instead of 4. As in the 'standard' version - change 1 letter per post, forming a new word, with the objective of reaching a specified target word. Whoever reaches the target word then specifies the new target.

As this version will likely be harder at times to reach the target there is one additional rule to limit the difficulty - any target word can never contain more than one, if any, of "Z", "X", "Q" or "J".

Here we go:

Start word: START

Target: BEGIN

Hi Tim

Hi

No worries !! I thought the 4 word letter was a bit too easy, so the 5 letter version might be more "taxing" on the brain cell (singular !!) ;-)


Target: First

TINGE > GIANT
