Congrats to all who play.......Please notice the extra and amended rules. Higher scoring is now possible. My advice to everyone is to keep their own database of previous used words. The entries will be checked !!

Rules

1. Take away any letter, add a New letter and rearrange the letters to make a new word.

2. If you use a word that has been used in any previous games, which doesn't start with the last letter of the previous entry...YOU'RE SCORE IS X1

3. If you use a word that hasn't been used in any of the previous games, which doesn't start with the last letter of the previous entry...OR...If you use a word that has been used in any of the previous games and starts with the last letter of the previous entry...YOU'RE SCORE IS X2

4. If it is a new word and starts with the last letter of the previous entry...YOU'RE SCORE IS X3

5. The Word Must be found in the 'definitions in English' Onl.

6. No Plurals

7. You can only score points if your entry is Valid.

8. Challenges can be made on any players entry within the Same Day.

9. Challengers will be awarded extra points if successful, but deducted points if failed.

10. A Duplicated entry in the same week will be Invalid.

11. Each letter is scored individualy.

12. Monday = 4 letters ; Tuesday = 5 letters ; Wednesday = 6 letters ; Thurday = 5 letters ; Friday = 4 letters.

Lord, I looked first thing this morning and thought, "No problem, that "X" is somebody else's to deal with." Then I realized that I am next, for the time being anyway. ARG!!!
Well, I can't make the X work, but I can swap it for a "K" and come up with a never-before-been-used
KILN - a noun
Ohhh, baby, I'm hot!!!!
