The object of this game is deceptively simple: Make an anagram of the previous word, but add or subtract one letter. No abbreviations, acronyms or contractions allowed.

Example: "Want" can become "Tawny", but can't become "Wont" (a particular person's behaviour) or "Won't" (shortened for of "will not") because in the case of "Wont", a letter wasn't added or subtracted and in the case of "Won't", it's a contraction. We clear? Then go forth and have fun! I'll start off with an easy one:

Begin.

Ghosts, flamingos, guitars and vodka. Don't forget Kitty and Kitten. Eclectic subjects, eccentric stories:

A love poem <3 Kitty & Kitten
Editors' Pick! :D I Am The Deep, Dark Woods

Cripes, Andrew! Deceptively simple doesn't even start to describe it, you cheeky ******* (affectionate term that sounds like "harsted" but deleted because you know I love you).

Begin ---> Reign

Does this work and fall under the terms of the game? I changed one letter, switched out the order - that means a letter was left out AND one added.

I'm not sure I'm getting this right, mate. d'oh!

Nope, I totally got it wrong.

Add a letter, or subtract a letter, and mess up the order of same.

So an acceptable word would be of six or four letters for the first response. Right?

So, however you do it, the gist is basically to make an anagram with an extra letter in the word, or a letter taken away from the word. You can anagram then add/subtract, or subtract/add then anagram, whichever works, really.

Oops, gusss I should play, too!

Ingrown > Rowing.

Wring - grind

Is this not the same as the "change one letter" game in the games forum?

No, read the original rules as stated by Andrew. If they are respected it is a totally different word game and not straight forward.

A letter COUNT change has to be enacted.

So, when I posted "rowing" from "grown", the word count changed, a letter changed, and an anagram created.

As Andrew said in his OP, it might seem simple, but it isn't.
