How to Play
**Each set of word-pairs differs by one letter (e.g., BE MY -- BY MY -- BY ME).... The 3rd column provides an "alternate phrase" equivalent, for each SET of underlined words in the hints (if you need a bit o' help). Also, the word "dude" is used in a universal context, and can apply to either gender.
