You may add or delete only one letter, and you may scramble the letters to form a new word.

Example:
SKIM
MILK
MILE


Here we go!

(If we're wanting re-arrangement, isn't this more properly Anagrams rather than Scrabble(R) ?)

Or "SCRAMBLE"

But, I'm confused on the rules. You said "add or delete one letter", but in your example, "skim", the two given, "milk" and "mile" do not have added OR deleted letters, only changed letters! So, are the choices to add, delete or change one letter, and rearrange if desired? Here are mine:

BRAN (shea.. he he)
BAIRN (love that word!)
ROBIN
BARING

And continuing from Alex Williams's:

LASING

Yep,it's not clear. From the example it looks like the amount of letters should stay the same. Take and give one or scramble.
No?
