One could play Conlang Scrabble, either in a single language, or allow any word from any conlang (not too big a phonology, please). Has anyone tried "international" Scrabble, where any foreign word (in Roman chars.) is allowed?? (The various official Scrabble dictionaries do contain lots of unfamiliar foreign words) I was just told that ESPN is airing a spelling bee, and that some poor kid flubbed on "festschrift"-- seems to me that allowing rather specialized foreign words in a US contest is not nice. I didn't hear that word until I was in grad. school, already in my 30s :-)
