Thanks. For some reason, it didn't occur to me to go without the Y, although it makes perfect sense. I guess I was just thinking adjective & not noun.

TETRIS works. It's marked as a trademarked proper noun in the dictionary, but the game accepted it.

I played SQUATTLE on a 5x5 board and got 18 pts and 2 new records. I looked up the definition: to squat down [v SQUATTLED, SQUATTLING, SQUATTLES]

In the Lexicographical Neighbors list I spotted SQUATTOCRACY.
Noun. (Australia slang) wealthy landowners considered as a class
I guess they DO have squat as opposed to those of us who "don't have squat." lol
