What is a Word Chain?

A word chain is a simple word game, the object of which is to change one word into another through the smallest possible number of steps. At each step a player may perform one of four specific actions upon the word in play - either add a letter, remove a letter or change a letter without switching the order of the letters in play, or create an anagram of the current word. The trick is that each new step must create a valid, English-language word. A quick exaple would be FROG FOG FLOG GOLF.(First we removed the 'R', then added an 'L', and finally we anagrammed FLOG into GOLF). This sample game consisted of three steps

1- Add a letter - i.e. you can turn FOG into FROG
2- Remove a letter - i.e. you can turn HEARD into HEAD
3- Change a letter - i.e. you can turn WELP into WELD
4- Create an anagram - i.e. you can turn RATES into STARE
