How to play
This game is a variation of Word Ladder. Players can either challenge themselves or others to change one word to another in the fewest number of steps. The two selected words can be of different length, but they should preferably be related in some way, like week and month, or forest and trees. Letters are added or removed one at a time, and at each stage a new word must be made. No words may be repeated. The winner is the player who completes the transformation in the fewest number of steps.
