Hasbro seeks new Scrabble words


It's the first time in nine years that the dictionary is being updated.

Some of the words being considered are twerk for 12 points, selfie for 9 points and hashtag for 14 points.

You can nominate a word on the Hasbro Game Night Facebook page through March 28.

On April 2, 16 words from the pool of nominations will be chosen for fans to vote on.

The new word will be revealed on April 10, and will be in the new Scrabble dictionary, which will be released in August.
