## Question

I recently discovered a satisfying new word game called 'doublets.' Lewis Carroll actually invented this game. You start with one word and have to change it into another word, but you can only change it one letter at a time. Also, when you change a letter, you have to form a real word, and you only have a certain number of spaces to solve it with. Here's an example for WARM to COLD.

WARM

ward

word

cord

COLD

Here's the ones you can try to solve:

LOSE

NONE

I am still stumped on the last two, but I can try and give hints if these are too challenging.

Actually, I just solved them...

You can change the order of the letters.

And, of course, there are multiple solutions.

If you solved them, try solving them without changing the order of the word. It is not possible for some of them.

I don't like spoilers because I ALWAYS have to peek...Good Luck!

Actually puzzled, I have solved some of them like you did, not using the correct amount of spaces, but when you add the extra one or two spaces, it is not possible.
