 Latest Word Added to Scrabble Dictionary: Geocache

Hasbro have added a new word, Geocache, to their Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, which means treasure hunting via GPS.

Up against the final 16 words such as bitcoin, bestie, ew, retweet, zen, woot, booyah, cosplay, lifehack, and adorbs, geocache came out as the final winner.

Geocache-an adventurous past time where people use clues and GPS to find real-life hidden treasures often placed on hiking trails and remote locations-now counts as a legal word to use in a Scrabble game.

It's the first new word to be added in nine years, and it will be included in the fifth edition of Hasbro's Official Scrabble Players Dictionary.
