    Lightbulb The Word Game....

    THE RULES.....
    The rules of the word game is easy..

    1) Change Only one letter from the previous word.
    2) You cannot change the letter positions..
    3) You cannot backtrack a Letter change.
    4) Post must have only One valid word (Multiple word postings will be ignored)
    5) You cannot add and remove letters, It has to be a 4 letter word.
    6) All words used must be in English, no other language may be used, Slang words are also excluded.
    7) Reposting Words is not accepted (Or at least the Last 15 + words)

    Examples:

    Pool to Pole is not a valid change..

    But

    Pool to Poll is. (The next word cannot be Pool again but can be Pole)


    Every posting in this thread MUST START with the new word. You can add coments with [//], but these must be related to previous word postings.
    ROOT

    //I guess that this is a good word to start from..

    broom

    And what about adding/removing letters? I think that its ok if it keeps the order of letters from the previous word, so combination like 'god' => 'good' is still correct (I could not think of more sophisticated example ATM )
