I have been watching a few of the Real Life police programmes or repossession agent programs from England recently and I have noticed one word that seemed to come up a lot. It is the word BRUV, which is obviously the slang word at the moment for ‘brother.’ However, don...

Alastair Richards had a comfortable win against me in the tournament today. He played just 10 turns and even in just one game he played several interesting words. It seemed like an ideal chance for you to see if you could have found the same words that he did.

Three letter words ending in the letters OB are quite often played because they can score moderately well for a 3 letter word and because almost all of them are ordinary words that everybody knows.

At the tournament today a very experienced A Grade player challenged one of the words in the quiz today.

I was watching a David Attenborough nature program and learned the meaning of a word I had seen many times. The word was HALTERE. I had imagined it was a word of French origin for some article of clothing or something. I certainly had no idea that it was the remnant of...

The quiz for this week is to write down the 4 letter words you can think of that start with the letters DOU.

DOU is not a word, so these are not hook words to add to a word already on the board. It is a vocabulary test, so just work your way through the alphabet decidin...
