The Neverending Word Transformation Game
« on: November 29, 2009, 03:24:59 pm »
In this game, each successive poster will change the word by one letter and repost (for example, carp changes to tarp).

----------------------------------------------------------------
Rules Clarification 1/19/2010

It is acceptable to add or delete a letter as well (rat could change to rate).

Major changes should be avoided; if not done carefully, changing/adding/reordering many letters at once can make it difficult for later posters to transform a word just by changing one letter. Deleting many letters (or the other major changes already mentioned) can result in a word that little resembles a previous word, so for this reason such changes should also be avoided.

If we seem to be stuck on a word (that is, the only word you think you could transform the current word to is the word in the previous post AND no one has posted for many many hours [indicating others have not thought of a new word to make either]) it is acceptable to change a few letters... just be careful not to make it into a word that is difficult to work with/that might trap us. If we are stuck on a long word, it is probably a safe bet to shorten it; there are many more possibilities with shorter words than longer words.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Let's start with the word bill.

It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
