Excellent of course. ( )

I only play my SCRABBLE at the scrabble internet club (SIC), so I canmnot say how this dictionary does for other sites, but the SIC uses this dictionary and adds a few words, mostly vulgariti4es and slang, that the dictionary will not publish. ( )

Perhaps the only reference book that has gotten regular use in my home since I learned to spell. Anyone without a real love of the game will complain about its inclusion or exclusion of words, but those of us with the Scrabble Sickness have nothing but awe for those who consider all the finer points of the game when determining the final lineup.

This is a hardback copy also called the collector's scrabble edition.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0877799156, Paperback)

If you're using the 1991 edition or the 1978 original, you're woefully behind the Scrabble-playing times. With more than 100,000 2- to 8-letter words, there are some interesting additions ("aargh," "aarrgh," and "aarrghh" are all legitimate now), while words they consider offensive are no longer kosher. Why subscribe to the Scrabble dictionary's changeable lexicon? Well, it ends the argument of whose dictionary to use, but the main reason is that it's the winner's dictionary, and why play Scrabble if not to win? Memorize those 2- and 3-letter words, and your Scrabble game becomes lethal.
