Hey, it's easy to play in the occasional Word Game Players Organization (WGPO) tournament, too!

Yes you have to be a WGPO member, but membership is free!

“But they use a different word list!”  

Yes, it's called WOW24 and it's not THAT much different:

1)     It does include almost all of the slurs that were eliminated from NWL20

2)     It does not include most of the strange new plurals like

ROUXES, FECESES, COVIDS, etc.

So, if your word seems like it might be insulting, play it!

If your opponent plays a word with a weird plural, challenge it!
