Word Morph 1

Apart from the first, each answer is found by solving its clue as normal but it has to be consistent with the action to be performed on the previous answer. Possible actions are:
  • Add - number of letters to add.
  • Remove - number of letters to remove.
  • Replace - number of letters to replace with different ones.
  • Swap - Swap two letters within the previous answer.
  • (For the previous four actions, all unaffected letters remain in the same order)
  • Shuffle - Make an anagram of all letters in previous answer.
Due to the nature of this quiz, correct spelling is required!
