The Words With Friends March dictionary update has been rolling out to players for a while now, and we've confirmed the following changes. Things are a little dicey this time around, so cover your children's ears as we go through this edition of "What's Going On Here!??"
Need to Know:
New 2-letter words:
"FU" is probably the most fun here, and it is a very high-scoring bridge word. We believe they're referring to martial arts, but you can think whatever you like about it.
New 3-letter words
Notice "FAP" is now a legal playable word. Uh-huh. We expect this will be removed in the near future. We don't recommend looking it up.
Another interesting addition is "MMM," given you'll have to expend a blank tile to play it. It also represents a slew of onomatopoeias added in this update. We're looking into it.
New Q words:
New X words:
A handful of onomatopoeia were included. You may now laugh at your opponent in more varied ways.
Oh, these really hurt. Right in the heart. Kids these days are too kewl for cool.
To the best of our ability to search these out, it appears these words are simply misspelled. Have fun playing them while you can, just to anger your opponent.
Questionable Compound and Hyphenated Words
The rules for compound words and hyphenations are often vague and arbitrary. It appears WWF is going for an inclusive approach here. The spell checker is going crazy as we type these in.
These are just the ones we know of. There are reports of potentially hundreds more.
There are three particularly funny additions. "BIGBREASTED," BLUEBALL," and "BLUEBALLS" are all now valid WWF2 words you can play. We don't know why they included the second one, except perhaps to not leave anyone out.
I almost put "YOUALL" into the misspelling and slang categories, but really, it's just a mystery.
Players are also reporting there is a lot more weirdness in this latest dictionary update, but it's a little too, um, risqué for the scope of this post. Many, many objectionable words were included in this update. We'll have a more in-depth article on the matter soon. Stay tuned.
Find a word we missed? Has WWF updated and this list is no longer accurate? Let us know!
