Start with a 4 letter word.
Change any ONE letter each time to make a new word, e.g. team changes to seam.
You can't mix the letters up, e.g. team changed to meal is not allowed.

1. Post no more than once a page or 24 hours per member, whichever comes first.
2. No repeated words.
3. No curse words.
4. Must be a legitimate English word.
5. No words unfit for Scrabble (i.e. proper names etc.)
6. The person that comes up with a word that no one can change into another word is the winner.

lust

[Edit]Arrgh, I just saw that I posted 3hrs too early, so the word is still rust.

It would have counted, it's once per page or 24 hours whichever comes first. That was your first post on page 6 so it was valid.

Sorry, not a real word. If you are going for a singular of pubes, the word you are looking for is pubis. The last legitimate word is pubs.

Maia, if you want to make another post, since the previous word was invalid, you may go ahead.

rote --> rite

You are correct Sxeptomaniac, dote --> does isn't allowed because it changes the order of the letters.
