Hello, hullo, hallo, hillo and hollo are all accepted in Scrabble too.

But they all mean pretty much the same thing.

Man I didn't realise until very late that you have to enter all the words together! I did get used to and just finish it in the end though. The last one is cute, but perhaps sth like 'karate level' would be more fair...

Nice quiz. I might quibble over one word or another, but the quiz concept is unique, challenging and fun.

One more to add? tin (metal) tan (brown) ton (weight) tun (container/barrel) ten (number).

I might be stupid.

However, I was trying to change one vowel in each of the clued words to get a new word. It made sense to me to put five in each clue so you couldn't just spin through all of the possibilities.

Spent most of the time trying to get some version of

"eval, cut, sproat, affer, ???" to work

I found one myself! far (distant), for (preposition), fur (animal skin), fir (tree), and fer (informal preposition).
