Pastimes and Pleasures
This challenge contains 5 laddergrams.
Enter a six-letter word for the first definition in the first box. Drop one letter and then rearrange the remaining letters to form a word that will fit the second definition and enter it in the second box. Drop one letter from that word and rearrange the remaining letters to form a word that fits the third definition and enter it in the third box. Now put the first dropped letter in the far left column and the second dropped letter in the far right column.

Repeat the process for the boxes in the remaining rows, and two related words will be created in the first and last columns when read from top to bottom. Go ahead; try it!
