Welcome to this fantastic collection of 100 word ladder puzzles. Word ladders are fun and entertaining word puzzles that are a real test of your vocabulary. The rules of word ladders are deceptively simple. All you need to do is move from the word at the top of the ladder to the word at the bottom of the ladder in the stated number of steps, placing a new word on each rung of the ladder. As you move down the ladder, the rule is that you can only change one letter at a time, and you cannot shuffle the order of any of the letters. For instance, you can move from 'MORE' to 'MOVE', here changing the 'R' for a 'V'. However, 'MORE' to 'LOVE' isn't valid as here you are swapping two letters when you are only allowed to swap one. Of course, each word you make must be in the dictionary, so you couldn't move from 'MORE' to 'MZRE' for instance. That's all there is to it - good luck, and we hope you have lots of fun climbing, or descending, the 100 word ladders in this book!
