You solve these Word Ladders by changing one letter in the first word to form a new word and then repeat the process until you spell the ending word. The number of letter-change moves it took me is in brackets...can you do it in less?

Example: To change Mice into Rats I made 4 moves...

mice -1-> mite -2-> mate -3-> mats -4-> rats

= 1. hot dog [2]
= 2. far out [3]
= 3. ball park [3]
= 4. pool side [6]
= 5. play date [7]
= 6. flat rate [7]

5. Play Date

or if you don't like dane as a proper name

Thanks soot! I find it much harder to create puzzles than to solve them. I appreciate you making the effort to set these up for us.
