Word Chain Quiz Puzzle

Word Chain puzzles have been popular since the 19th Century; puzzles where you have to change one letter at a time to change one word into another word, with each step also being a valid word. But these Word Chains are different!

In these Word Chains it is the meaning of the words that changes at each step. For example Twenty-Score-Cut-Snub is a "meaningful word chain". Twenty is a Score, to Score (with a knife) is to Cut, and to Cut someone is to Snub them.
