comment Dictionary for Scrabble that doesn't contain ridiculous words
You missed OX by the way. Of course it's an animal, we all know that. But it has an X in it and is only 2 letters. AX is one I was more surprised is allowed, the tool normally has an E at the end.

ban names of letters? both roman and foreign. that would include ZED and ZEE of course. I assume XI is a greek letter which is why it is allowed.

comment How common are offensive words in tournament Scrabble play?
However I wouldn't say "goy" is offensive or derogatory. The more offensive term for non-Jew in our language is "akum". "shiksa" is even more offensive.

comment Name of a card game
Normally I've played rummy with 10 cards. A couple of times I went down with 2 runs of 5 cards. Always quite liked doing that.

comment Why is the strong 1NT so prevalent in Bridge?
Good point because when I play 5cM with strong NT and partner opens 1m and I have 17 points and support for the minor I am desperate to know partner's strength and whether he really has the minor or not.
