ADD OR DELETE TWO LETTERS
2 years ago

This is one of my favorite word games. The idea is to add 2 letters or delete 2 letters from the last word that is given. The words have to have either 3, 5, 7, 9 or 11 letters if you can find a word with 11 letters. In other words, each word has to contain an odd number of letters. You can't change the letters of the last word given, you can only use the same letters, adding 2 more or deleting 2. You can change the sequence of the letters. For instance, if the word is:

LEADS, delete 2 letters and get SAD - or

LEADS, add 2 letters and get DEALERS or change LEADS' letters around, add two and get SADDLES.

Get it? Ok, I'll start with one word and you take it from there.

No wonder you're confused, Diane. I'm breaking my brains when I try to figure out who to follow here. Care2 is making a mish-mash of everything. It's a fine mess you've gotten us into, Care2! (paraphrasing Laurel and Hardy LOL)

I'm going to follow Nyack with "steward" and see if we can straighten this out.
