"133 5 letters" (134)

I got the idea that 5 letters is permissible from some previous upscaling-- as long as the
4 letters of the previous are retained, only one
letter has been added.

139ghr4
Sep 17, 2018, 5:38pm

>138 rolandperkins: Not sure what the original rules were... how about adding a fifth letter only if a new 4-letter word is not possible. Then next player reduces to a 4-letter word, changing a letter if necessary.
