By changing one letter at a time in each word without permuting letters, leaving two other common English words, how many changes are required to get from
TEST POLL
to
MATT MATT
I got it in five substitutions for each word. Can anyone do it in fewer? Three is the theoretical minimum for TEST->MATT; four for POLL->MATT. All words have to be in The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (Fourth Edition).

PhiPi wins for the most complicated perturbation yet.

Can I say "perturbation" on TV?

Fibonacci sequence, anyone?

Yeah, you know you're in trouble when you don't even understand the question.

LOL... Exactly!

Apparently, Phil is explanation-challenged. So here's an example, going from COG to HUB:
COG
HOG
HUG
HUB
(I was gonna use STAMP to PROPS for the example but couldn't find a route.)

POLL
MOLL
MALL
MALT
MATT

Best I could come up with for POLL->MATT
(assuming moll is in Scrabble dictionary, don't have mine handy)

The other appears harder.

14. ## Re: test poll

Rick,

Yup, MOLL is in there. You beat me by one and hit the theoretical minimum! I had:
POLL
POLE
PALE
MALE
MALT
MATT
-Phil

15. ## Re: test poll

Wow! I don't think I've ever hit a theoretical minimum before....makes me want to wake up the wife and kid and share the moment!

16. ## Re: test poll

Can PHIL become RICK in just 4 moves? A prickly problem, to be sure.

Whatever became of this test poll madness in our topsy turvy world?

Here's a product name logo "apide" I played with for a while. Decided not to use it.
