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
