• Desktop, V2, Win 10. Move 9 of 19, game 15931074, UK English. Trying to add an "s" (with a wild card (blank) tile) to the word "epazote" already on the board. Wouldn't allow me to add the "s" even though a) entering the word in the "dictionary" tab showed it as valid, b) using Wordsolver and the SOWPODS dictionary showed it as valid, and c) when analyzing the game after it was completed, it showed "epazotes" as one of the possible plays. (I discovered this by trying to play the word "bufos" and the play button was red, showing it was invalid. Then I found that just the s was the problem.)
    I mention this just in case it would reveal some coding error in a condition that might arise rarely. Having played the game for some years, and V2 for some months, I have never seen another example of this!

  • @laysan Not familiar with Brit dictionary . are you sure epazote is good with s there? I know in US but not sure in UK


  • @betterlate1 Valid in both. This is a good place to quickly check both dictionaries at the same time:

  • @dan-mitchell Sorry do not usually try dictionaries, unless Brit cause I generally do not play Brit but maybe then the placement of the word?
