Questionable Grabble Words

  • 10-19-2015 - A note from Badger This questionable word list is checked as time allows. Some words take longer to research, and discuss, than others. Such is the case with the English Language! As noted below, we cannot guarantee a timely response to such a request, nor will the game play be paused while we consider the request; in other words you must still make your move before the time runs out. Writing to GoldToken Support to pressure the "Word Smith Team" will NOT make this process faster, nor will we respond to any such messages.

-------- WARNING: Only the Grabble Crew may remove words. --------
Anyone found deliberately removing other members' words from the Questionable Grabble Words list may lose their wiki editing abilities.
  • If the system rejects a word which you feel is a valid word, you may request that we add that word to our dictionary, but we cannot guarantee a timely response to such a request, nor will the game play be paused while we consider the request; in other words you must still make your move before the time runs out.
      • Please also let us know words that should be removed.
