To change one word to another word one letter at a time.
How to play
Players can either challenge themselves or others to change one word to another in the fewest number of steps. The two selected words must have the same number of letters and should preferably be related in some way, like head and tail, or warm and cold. Letters are changed one at a time, and at each stage a new word must be made. The winner is the player who completes the transformation in the fewest number of steps. Alternatively, players can change the position of a letter instead of changing a letter.
Alton challenges himself to transform slow to fast by changing one letter at a time.
He then finds that by repositioning a single letter in the second move, the transformation is completed in fewer steps.
