Instructions for Doublets

This game was invented by C. L. Dodgson (1832-1898), who (using the pseudonym Lewis Carroll) also wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

The aim of the game is to get from a given initial word to a given final word by changing only one letter per line. Note that every line must be a valid word. Sometimes there are several possibilities (see example).

Example: get from WELL to TAKE
