Again, I feel I must point out: This isn't a letter-substitution game, it's sound change game. How likely is an unconditioned change of initial /k/ to /p/ in a language? (Yes, they're both voiceless plosives, but produced at opposite sides of the mouth.) If we're going to throw all phonetic plausibility out the window, then the game becomes essentially mechanical and mindless.
