I've looked around this forum, and I don't think I've seen a game like this one, so here goes.

In this game, we'll start with a word. Then, each poster will change the current word into a new one (non-proper nouns) by doing one of five moves:
  • Adding a letter
  • Removing a letter
  • Changing a letter
  • Moving a letter
  • Swapping two letters
For example:

Adding a letter
Example:
sing > singe


Removing a letter
Example:
singe > sine


Changing a letter
Example:
sine > side


Moving a letter
Example:
side > ides


Swapping two letters
Example:
ides > dies


If the word has six or more letters to begin with, you can do two moves. In that case, it doesn't have to be a real word after the first move. For example:

Example:
simple > simle > slime


Of course, you can always just stick to one move if you want.

Try not to reverse the previous poster's move(s) unless you're absolutely stuck. Also, remember to follow the 4-word/25-character rule.

To start off, let's begin with this word:

Quote:
word
Enjoy! ^-^

Ward - Wart

I changed the d to a t. A wart is a growth on the skin.

Swapping the r and the f changes that fart into a raft, that thing you can ride on the water.

Yep, that's right. Changing the a into an e gives deft, as in skillful.

daft > deft

Not much else you could do with that word I'm afraid.

If you add a 'c' to the front you get cleft, an opening/split.

Getting tricky. Let's pluralize it by adding an s to the end: clefts. Six letters!

That chef has to taste the food made, so turning that "f" into a "w" lets the chef chew.
