    Either add a letter, or delete one, then make a new word.

    Example

    WORD

    You can add any letter, like e, for rowed. Or delete any letter, like w, for rod:

    ADDING a Letter (shuffle up)
    rowed
    sword
    words
    world

    Deleting a letter (shuffle down)
    row
    rod
    DOW

    Once it's down to three letters, you must add a letter. No one-or-two-letter words allowed.

    Okay, first word:

    matter

    DNU - could we have a ruling on post #2? It did not increase or decrease the letter count, which I thought was required (?) END DNU

    EDIT: I reread the examples, and I see that it is apparently OK to change a letter, but the rules didn't say that.

    Second Edit: I now realize that all the exampes refer to the first word "WORD" and did either increase or decrease the letter count by one.

    According to the OP, a letter added or subtracted is necessary. The original letters should be used, and can be rearranged to form a new word with the letter addition or subtraction. Nothing about changing only one letter, as I think we already have change one letter games.

    {Your word should have either one more, or one less letter than the previous word, and share all other letters with the previous. IOW, you cannot change a letter, but you can choose to add one. Or to delete one. But not both.}
