Slang could be your "thang" for Scrabble

Innit. Thang. Grrl. Fiqh.

Incorporate those words into your Scrabble arsenal because they are fair game to win at the word game.

Game staffers based in Glasgow, Scotland, have compiled 3,000 extra words that are now officially allowed, according to the Scotsman. Webzine, Facebook and blingy were added, the paper reports.

Oh, and for players who always wind up with that impossible 'Q' and want to spell Fiqh, know that the word means an expansion of Islamic law and involves the observance of Islamic rituals and customs.

  1. Pretty sloppy reporting - not true for the USA/Canada

    Did you actually try calling the National Scrabble Association to see if Collins was the official list for use for most of your readership? I thought not. Well guess what? It isn't the list we use in the US or Canada. Nice job plagerizing other sources though..
