hakari, these are the rules, copied directly from the very first post of the game. Please follow them:
This is a game I've started on every board I've been on and I still love it. I'll post a four letter word, then the next changes one letter to make a new word. You can not rearrange the letters and you cannot use a word that has previously been used.
The only rule added since then is that the word must be found in the English dictionary.
Once again we will ignore hakari's post please and continue from "pipe".
