I'm sorry to keep harping about this but "common" means "common" to everyone...........occurring, found, or done often; prevalent: "salt and pepper are the two most common seasonings" synonyms usual, ordinary, customary, habitual, familiar,

But you just go ahead and post whatever...... it's only we two, so don't worry about "Common" and neither will I .........


Hurts - Hours

I don't understand the point of keeping it to common words. To me, part of the fun of a word game is learning new words. I could see requiring the words to be part of a scrabble dictionary or some other specific dictionary. I have no way of knowing which words are common to other people.

Hours - Horse

When the game was originated, there were multiple players, some of which would complain about some words used, so we decided that only "Common Usage" words would be allowed.............



Fine with me ; if it's in the Scrabble Dictionary, it's legal. Okay ??


Horse - Short

I didn't realize there was a spcecific reason for the common-wprds-only. I guess that sort of makes sense.

Any particular scrabble dictionary? This one will even tell you if it's only in the UK scrabble dictionary. https://scrabblewordfinder.org/dictionary-checker
I don't mind if we limit it to a US scrabble dictionary. Just so long as there is somewhere I can check that the word I want to use is acceptable.

Short - Thorn

I meant to ask, are we still allowing proper first and last names? I'm fine with that.
