Tranagrams

You won’t find a link to this game, because it’s my own invention (Transform + Anagrams = Tranagrams). Sort of a cross between the “change-a-letter” Cyber Scrabble we’ve been playing on worldmagblog for over three months, and anagrams (where you rearrange the same letters). Someone on the Cyber Scrabble thread suggested, at one point, a new game where you could also add or subtract a letter, or rearrange letters. That seemed to make the possibilities so broad that I wanted to add a little challenge.

So here’s my idea. Start with a set of two (or more) words that are anagrams, such as READ/DARE/DEAR. Then Add, Change, or Delete a letter, to make a new set of words, neither/none of which has to use the letters in the same order. So, some possibilities for the next set would be:

Adding a letter:
ADDER/DARED/DREAD
BREAD/BEARD/BARED

Changing a letter:
BEAR/BARE
RAID/ARID
REED/DEER
REAP/PEAR/PARE/RAPE

Deleting a letter:
EAR/ERA/ARE

From there, you go on with another change and a new set of words. So RAID/ARID could be followed by AVID/DIVA. Or TREAD/TRADE/RATED could be followed by RATE/TARE/TEAR or DARTED/TRADED or DREAM/ARMED.

Rules for acceptable words are the same as we’ve been using in our Cyber Scrabble game – no foreign words or foul language, and no repeats (unless you can come up with two new words using the same letters).

Each day I will update this post with whatever sets of words have been added. If no one else adds any, each day I’ll add a new set of my own.

I might as well make use of some of the sets I’ve already listed, so here’s the beginning of this game of Tranagrams:

1. EAR/ERA/ARE
2. BEAR/BARE
3. BREAD/BEARD/BARED
4. TREAD/TRADE/RATED
5. DARTED/TRADED
6. ADDER/DARED/DREAD
7. DREAM/ARMED
8. READ/DARE/DEAR
9. RAID/ARID
10. AVID/DIVA

I have a set in mind that works next, but I’ll let someone else have a go at it first.
