    Word Link

    The idea of this puzzle is to create a new word that relates to the first word. You must change one letter at a time and each link in the chain must be a word in its own right.

    Eg.
    HEAD,heal,teal,tell,tall,TAIL
    WORD,woad,road,read,dead,DEED
    SLEEP,sheep,cheep,creep,creek,creak,cream,DREAM

    Can you complete the following doublets in five or fewer steps?

    1. PIG - STY >>> Answered correctly
    2. FLOUR - BREAD >>> Answered correctly
    3. FISH - MEAT >>> Answered correctly
    4. HAND - FOOT >>> Answered correctly
    6. COAL - MINE >>> Answered correctly

    Still outstanding!

    5. RICH - POOR
    7. TEARS - SMILE
    8. LIVE - DEAD

    Rudi

    Re: Word Link

    The original post states 5 or fewer steps. Are you allowing answers with more than 5 steps?

    Re: Word Link

    Yes...Each of the entries can be solved in 5 or fewer steps... I'm accepting any answers, but if anyone wants to improve on an answer of more than 5 steps thay are welcome to try.

    Re: Word Link

    I had to look up <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">rick</span hide> and <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">boor</span hide> to find out if they are valid. They are....so you are CORRECT! <img src=/S/trophy.gif border=0 alt=trophy width=15 height=15>
