    You're right.

    Let's change it to chaning TWO letters (any two, together or not).
    Add two, remove two, change two, add one and remove one...

    BUT...

    You have to show a clear connection between the two words.
    Lingusitic connection or otherwise. Be creative.

    That shoud be a bit more challenging, no?
    What do you guys think?

    Maybe a bit too difficult, the connection thing, but we can try.

    Like this?

    Bricket

    Game invented by bored school kids in australia to destroy un-used cricket bats with large heavy objects, usually, but not limited to bricks of many descriptions.

    1. You replaced the 'R' with an 'U'
    2. You removed the 'I'
    3. You added the 'S'

    If they have to be connected, it will be too difficult. So, why don't we remove that rule? ^__^


    I thought I did exactly per rule:

    I removed R and I, and added U and S :shrug:

    Anyway, if it has to be like what you mean, we can cancel the "buckets". So, the last word is "bricket". I'll see if I can come up with one before the other post new one. Ok?

    It was just installed (post 128).

    No, the former rules were that you can add one latter, remove one letter, or change on letter.
    The new rules are that you can [add OR remove OR replace] a letter and then do it again (post 128).

    Edit:
    According to your understanding of the new rules you made three changes as well.
    You removed 'RI', added 'U', and added 'S'

    Did you see my post #136?

    Also, I am still confused with the "connection" thingy. Can you give me one example?

    I think that rule is too difficult as well, but I think we should just try.
    Example: See post 130.

    Ok, I see what you mean by connection. So it's like the "word association" games, right...?

    BUT, I still don't understand the rule.. my mind is slow today

    For example, what does he/you mean by:

    Can you give an example for that? I didn't understand your example before:

    bricks ---> bricket

    isn't that changing just one (the 's')? T__T

    Maybe I should just stay out of this game
