Change 1 letter at a time to change word 1 into word 2. The number of moves it took
me are in parantheses. See if you can meet or, better yet, beat them.

Example: To change boy into man: boy, bay, ban, man

Note: Proper nouns not allowed.

-1. look > leap (4)
-2. hunt > peck (4)
3. nose > face (4) Hint: The 3 words between nose and face all begin with "R".
-4. dusk > morn (5) Hint: The 4th word to replace the one in soot's post means "greatest".
5. paint > brush (6) Hint: The 1st 3 words begin with "P", the rest with "B".
-6. water > basin (6) Hint: The 1st 2 words after water begin with "L", the rest with "B".

Coreoverload, exactly! rah

soot, yours needs a little tweaking. The only "Dort" I can find is a proper noun.

Change that one word - everything else is fine. smile

Good try Doreen. You left off "nose" at the beginning, so the total moves
are 5. It can be done in 4 moves. Please try again. smile

Hint: Change the "i" in "rise" to a different vowel and take it from there. wave
