Word Ladders - 11/10/12 12:11 PM

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. good-luck [4]
= 2. long-pole [3]
= 3. port-pier [5]
= 4. free-bail [6]
= 5. bird-beak [4]
= 6. smile-frown [9]
