The makers of one of the world's favourite board games have issued a set of 6,500 new words which can now be legally used.
Collins, the makers of Scrabble, announced the additions to the game's dictionary this week, shocking players everywhere as colloquialisms such as "lolz", "ridic", "newbs" and "dench" were added to the list of acceptable words.
Can you guess the correct description of these new words?
"Cazh", a shortened term for "casual", is also now allowed with players looking to reap 18 points for the four-letter-word.
Helen Newstead, head of language content at Collins, said: "Dictionaries have always included formal and informal English, but it used to be hard to find printed evidence of the use of slang words.
"Now people use slang in social media posts, tweets, blogs, comments, text messages - you name it - so there's a host of evidence for informal varieties of English that simply didn't exist before."
Obvs people took issue with the new words:

The correlation between people who use 'ridic' in everyday conversation and people who are massive idiots must be pretty close #scrabble— Felicity Morse (@FelicityMorse) May 21, 2015
New words in the Scrabble dictionary include ‘Obvs’ and ‘Ridic’. Which is obviously ridiculous.— James Martin (@Pundamentalism) May 21, 2015
I feel strongly that hangry should have been added to the Scrabble dictionary.— Ellen Stewart (@ellenRstewart) May 21, 2015
