Down here, if you say that someone's 'carked it', you mean they've kicked the bucket.

On another forum where I played this game we had a rule that the word length had to be <5 unless the poster had a solution themselves.

You have to go from one word to the next changing one letter at a time. Each word must be legal.

You have to use the words the previous poster left and the words have to also be the same number of letters.

That is almost okay but tone -> much is not a one letter change.
