Word Tweening

Monday, 26 August 2013   |   Creativity Games

TweenThis week we're filling in the gaps.

Game:  There are 5 words listed below.  Pick any two of them.  Now your task is to get from the first word to the other word by adding intermediate words.  Each intermediate word is to be created by changing one or two (three if you get really stuck) letters from the previous word. (You can add and remove letters too to get to the words of different lengths)

  • class
  • minute
  • conductor
  • vegetable
  • potato


Challenge:  For extra challenge see if you can do it by only changing a single letter each time.

Strategy:  Often we know where we are and where we would like to be but the path in between in obscured and not direct.  We have to use our imagination and creativity to work out what path might be beneficial to us.  This game is also an opportunity to discover some new words.
