    New Variation on Shelledpea's Game

    Select any two words from the top post of any of the (currently56) pages.Eg. The top 2 words at the top of page3 are Bee-Keeper.See how many changes you can use to get back to the original 2 words i.e.Cruise Ticket.Lowest number wins. I'm useless but here goes...
    bee- keeper
    wicket -keeper
    sticky- wicket
    sticky -hands
    hands-down
    down-below
    below- deck
    deck-hand
    ships-deck
    cruise-ships
    cruise ticket..Bingo That's 10 attempts...beat that!!
    All you need to do is state which page(top post only) ,put your entry up and wait for it to get bettered.No free dinners from Stan and May for this one..only the glory I'm afraid .Stan

          tone up - up sticks

          1 up sticks - ski sticks
          2 ski sticks - ski pass
          3 ski pass - cruise pass
          4 cruise pass -cruise ticket


          That equals the 4 moves

            Hi Shelley and Stan,

            Stan you did say the two words could be from the top of any page.

            So top of Page 14 Cruise Director,

            So 1 change = Cruise Ticket. I'll go now!:o

                        That will teach me to be late turning on tonight - missed a whole game never mind there will be more I guess.

                          Hi Stan, if you don't congratulate me on my win soon, I really will believe your comments on the North/South divide are not just a 'wind-up';)

                          Still awaiting my 60 seconds of glory!! :D ?
