It has and, at this writing, continues to be a tough week in the United States: bombs, chemical explosions, flooding, death, severe injuries, manhunt, evacuation, lockdown.

Use the first clue to find the first four-letter word. For the remaining words (also four letters each), find the word that fits the clue and can be created by changing only one letter of the previous word.

Anyone else have resolutions on the brain? Today’s game gets you ready to embrace the upcoming year.
Use the first clue to find the first three-letter word. For the remaining words (also three letters each), find the word that fits the clue and can be created by changing only one letter of the previous word.
