And I was wondering about 'bests" - as in "She bests the dragon" sort of bests??

I played 'bests' in a game today, if that's any help to you. I don't know about 'mountie' though.

Are you sure? I've tried bests heaps of times and it never accepts it

I was sure, but now I'm totally doubting myself. Haven't been able to get a board where it's a possibility to check yet. I'm almost positive I did as I had read this thread before playing it and that's why it stuck in my mind.

1. mountie is not acceptable.
2. bests is acceptable. when you're typing fast, you tend to misspell things.

Default bossa

Bossa's a word, right? Beaner, definitely. I think the slant is away from American slang, perhaps.

Default sepia

It wouldn't take "sepia". Wha?
"Prunier" than thou, n'est-ce pas?
I also try again and again for the futile acceptance of "zen".

That's so funny, coyote, as I too just can't help but type in "zen" when I see it, even though I know it will be rejected.

Sepia? That's very strange. Perfectly good word, that one.
