You can't get from fast getaway to fastidious dresser by changing one word and, at most, one letter in the other word. Therefore:

I need to start keeping better track of everyone's posts I guess. I let a LOT of stuff just go by.

And I think TGS is right... you can change 1 letter in 1 of the words either by adding a letter, deleting a letter or changing a letter, but only 1.

I'm interested to see the comment about going from "fast getaway" to "fastidious dresser," but if the game is CHANGE ONE WORD as titled, I don't see how it works to go from "love poem" to "live again." Clearly changes BOTH words.

My point exactly about letting things just go by. NOT THAT BIG A DEAL. Everyone has done the same thing a time or two. It's just a word game. Nothing more, nothing less.

I agree with Victauria! How is it that someone can say "LOVE POEM" and the next person (who shall remain nameless) says "LIVE AGAIN" but then have the audacity to call someone out on a simple error? And if I may point out, this person (who again, shall remain nameless) is one of the people on here who MAKES THE SAME MISTAKE OVER AND OVER AGAIN BUT NO ONE ELSE CALLS THEM OUT SO HOW THEY FEEL THEY CAN CALL OUT EVERYONE ELSE IS BEYOND ME. HMMMM

Ignorance isn't always bliss!

Because, if you look at the original post, I extended the game to include being able to change one letter.

This is game where you build off of the post before you by changing one (and only one) word. The challenge is that your new post must make sense.

Example:

Field Goal

Goal Post

Goal Keeper

Bee Keeper

(No, you do not have to highlight your change in any way, I only did that for the example).

[Edited to Add (June 17th)]: You can also choose to change a letter in one of the words to make a whole new set of words:

River Raft

Craft Table

Table Top

Stop Sign


Have Fun!

I'll start:


Jump Up


I did not think to change the name of game/title at the time. I figured everyone would look at the first post before playing. I'm sorry if this has since caused argument or confusion.

I didn't see anything wrong with that switch... love, change the o to i for live, to get to "live again". Is that not a correct play? And like others, I let a lot pass too, but it would be nice to know the rules.

The rules are explained in the original post, which I quoted above!
