    10 points for "broast" which is "not in our dictionary!" How does this happen!?

    I don' know, but they should take those types of things out.

        "broast" (I agree, not a dictionary word), but at least it turns up some hits in a duckduckgo search (it's a commercial made-up term for a certain way of cooking chicken)

        ... unlike: suceptible* suceptibleness* suceptiblenesses *

        (should be "susceptible" etc.) (note the beginning 'susc', not 'suc')

        The board looked like this (note that the correctly-spelled versions of this word don't occur in this board):

        ussie
        ceesn
        selem
        ptbhe
        dinje


        but points were given for all three forms of the non-existent word (at least, I couldn't find it any of the first three dictionaries I looked at).

        Am I taking crazy pills?

        Is this a new aspect in the game: you have to think about trying mis-spelled versions of the words if you want to find the longest word in a board?

          Just seeing this- I agree that there are craaazy non-words on tap here. Either outright ridiculous, or things that are almost right, but not quite. I haven't kept a list but maybe I'll start...
