I spent way too long putting this puzzle together... and if you're daring, you'll spend way too long trying to solve it. But hey, it's Thursday, and the weekend is on the horizon. Enjoy today's Brain Game!

By changing one letter at a time to form new English words - and leaving all other letters in their original spots - can you change MONKEY into TARZAN? I found a way, but it took ten steps. If you can do better, please post yours in the comments!
