Unless you can give a definition that we can find in a dictionary, I don't think duma can be considered a legitimate English word.

Du·ma (plural Du·mas)


noun
Definition:

1. modern Russian parliament: the parliament of modern Russia, established in 1993 after the dissolution of the former Soviet Union

2. tsarist Russian parliament: a Russian council or parliament during the time of tsarist rule, set up around 1905 but quickly deprived of power

[Late 19th century. < Russian]

Encarta

It's in the dictionary, but as a proper noun, so it's not acceptable for Scrabble, aye?

I agree and think that Duma is a proper noun in english. Only in Russian would it be a noun meaning congress or parliment.

Puma/Duma -> Luma.

We can stop wondering of Duma is allowable now and continue on with the game [Smile]

Ok, I went through the list and found a few duplicates. I found a way to rearrange it a bit, added one word and got rid of Mars, a proper name. The upshot is I kept most of the list so that it falls in my original guidelines of the rules.

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.
7. No more than 6 rules...oops [Big Grin] [crazy]

After luma, lama is a repeated word so we need backtrack to luma.

luma --> lura
