Word Morph 4

Can you 'morph' the first word into the last by following each step along the way? 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!

Hey Berney! Thought I'd reply here since friends doesn't allow direct messaging.

Yes, your suspicions are correct that I am a fellow Brit, and in fact I enjoy your quizzes quite a bit! As told in the interview baptiste did for me (see it here), you're actually in my top 3 "smaller" JetPunkers. I've always enjoyed your quizzes ever since the first Word Morph. They may not be "popular", but they were enjoyable for me.

I just want to say thanks really, as although you're right I've done a lot for JetPunk through quizzes or developing the site, you've also done lots with your quizzes :)

Keep being British :)

Thanks for that Stewart. I hadn't read that interview before, the mention of my quizzes is much appreciated! I'm hoping that a few more of the ones I've created will be featured one day too, especially the Britain by Picture and the England and Scotland county series as I'm sure they would get a good number of UK takers at least. I particularly enjoy your map quizzes - keep up the good work!

Thanks Berney! I'll take a look at those quizzes, I have seen the county ones before but the Britain by picture looks good!
