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

GLURGE and GLURGES. Yes, it is the word coined by Snopes for a particular type of supposedly "true" story. There is no other definition.

I had no idea SUMMERSAULT/SUMMERSAULTING was a valid spelling until I tried it.

Haha, you even bigly described it. I played it before but didn't look up the meaning.
I wouldn't have thought of summersault as a valid word.

Default Finally!

I saw this board about 3 weeks ago and there was a tantalizing -izes suffix on it but I couldn't find anything to go with it. Saw the same game earlier today and got the same result! It just showed up again just now(!) and I finally found POETIZES. Now my torment is over and I hope I never see that board again. If I do I'll just dump it.

It's been a rather prominent word in American politics lately.
