How to play Weaver – Word game spin-off

If Wordle and word scramblers had a very intellectual baby.

When Wordle exploded across the internet, it unfortunately spawned many copycats that took its model and tried to sell it for a quick buck. However, many new and original word games were created as well, offering unique gameplay and strategy. One of these games is Weaver, a word game originally created by renowned author Lewis Carroll in 1877. The concept of the game is simple, but much like Wordle, it can pose quite the challenge.

What is Weaver word game?

The word game Weaver is an online version of Lewis Carroll's word ladder game. In this game, the player is given a starting word and an ending word and is tasked with reaching the end word by swapping one letter at a time. You continue to swap letters until you reach the final word and are allowed as many swaps as it takes to get there. The goal is to get to the final word in as few swaps as possible.

For example, if the starting word is "just" and the end word is "mist," you could switch the "j" to an "m" to make the word "must," thus getting you one step closer to the final word. Then, switching the "u" out for an "i" would make the word "mist," matching the final word and thus winning the Weaver in two steps.
