I am playing an online word game with my cousin.
We usually play in "Regular" mode, where the game won't let you play a non-word.
We recently switched to "Challenge" mode, which lets you play any word. It opens up the game to some obscure words.
But...if you play a word that doesn't exist, your opponent can challenge it and you lose the points.
Twice now I have played words, thinking they were real - and forgetting that the game won't block my mistake.
So now I am about to lose my points because I forgot the game setting.
I am currently suffering an epic skunking, at a score of 120 to 310.
