So the official rules of scrabble say no abbrievations allowed
http://www.scrabblepages.com/scrabble/rules/

Yet in the scrabble videogame you can use words like Uke which is short of ukelele.
The videogame says it uses the official scrabble dictionary.

Just sucks the fun out of it in my opinion.

If you read my post it says they watered down the official scrabble dictionary. And you always run into these scrabble nerds that refuse to allow any other dictionaries.

Second, scrabble is becoming watered down, too many fake words that are allowed as real words.

Hi Angel!

Well, suss means to work out something a bit tricky. It's used lots in England. Kinda: She sussed out that he was seeing someone.... or something like: Did you suss out your computer problem? 


But scrabble we use any dictionary at hand and that is the rule, so silly words like 'ee' and 'qi' are excluded. I just think it's common sense.

I suppose it's how seriously ya take it, but I've never played it on a computer, I don't play computer games, not my thing, though I am on chess.com.

In England that means it's being mailed.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.
