Tournaments will use updated word list beginning February 1, 2019

Dear WGPO Members,
In light of Merriam-Webster’s most recent update to the OSPD in 2018, the WGPO BPR/EC has approved the use of the new word list for use in all WGPO tournaments effective¬†February 1st. Many clubs will start using the new word list starting¬†January 1st. There might yet be some minor corrections addressed in near future, however, we expect that the new word list is basically in its final form. This change does not affect any tournaments using the international Collins lexicon.
Sincerely,
The Board of Player Representatives of WGPO
The Executive Committee of WGPO
