• My tough take on Word Ladder

    From Graham Smith@21:1/5 to All on Fri Apr 15 06:51:34 2022
    A bit over a year ago, I introduced Ladderet to this group - my novel variant of the standard Word Ladder puzzle. The puzzle is now on Twitter and Facebook. It’s entirely free. I publish one puzzle every weekday. I’ve clocked up ten weeks now.

    Wordle was the stimulus for this venture. Ladderet also uses 5-letter words and it is meant to be solved in a similar amount of time.

    On Twitter, I tweet the puzzle under the username @PuzzleSmith.
    On Facebook, I have a page for the puzzle. Search for ‘LadderetPuzzle’ to find it.

    Ladderet is different from a standard word ladder in three respects:
    1. The words are 5 letters long.
    2. There are just two intermediate rungs on the ladder.
    3. On each step, EXACTLY 2 letters must be changed.

    An example puzzle:
    * * * * *
    * * * * *

    Solution (there is only ever one - using commonplace words):

    Here is puzzle #45:
    * * * * *
    * * * * *

    The solution is on Twitter and Facebook.
