Doublets was a game invented by Lewis Carroll as a Christmas Present for two girls.

In "Doublets", what you need to do is morph one word into another by changing one letter at a time in a sequence of meaningful words.

As an example: How did MAN evolve from APE? Like this:

APE
APT
OPT
OAT
MAT
MAN

In this game: a member will start with a challenge and the first word in the sequence. The next posts the next word in the sequence, and so on till the final word is reached.

Note: While creating new challenges, be creative, at the same time making sure that the starting and final word are of the same length

HAVE FUN!

We'll start simple:
The Challenge:

Make MORE into LESS

MORE
LORE

Change a letter and find the next possible word in the sequence.
