To make the game a little more interesting, the rules here that, to get from one word to another, you may either add a letter, subtract a letter or change a letter. You may only do one of these, i.e. you may not add a letter and change one in the same turn, nor may you add and delete a letter in the same turn. Nor may you either add or delete and, in addition, change a letter. Only one letter may be altered at a time.

Rearrangement of words is permissible and encouraged so long as a letter is added, subtracted, or changed at the same time.

Let us start with a word that is on the top of our minds right now concerning gasoline prices:

costly

Usually, if the illegal play is just a rearrangement of letters without change, the play following is considered legit since it meets the rules for playing off of the play preceding the illegal one. Thus we don't go back, like we would if the play is illegal for other reasons. Thus I am going to play off of newt rather than tin.
