Just a word about playing the game in response to some posts on the page:
Some letters are more difficult than others and so we just do the best we can, considering we constantly go through the alphabet; it's quite feasible that there are no words that fit, and even if there were, it's not that critical.
For example on a previous page I noticed the use of 'Vimpat'; not a compound word as such, but the name of a drug, not something usually used in Scabble type games. People just let it go, for the same reason. 😉

This is a game, lighthearted and fun, and there's always a bit of leeway. :jive:



Meanwhile.. back at the game...

Vimpat is vim + pat. Although I would never use it in Scrabble, technically it is a proper noun like my given name.

I never saw "vac" as an English word in my life. Not counting abbreviations.
From dictionary.com -

vac
/vak/

noun
INFORMAL
noun: vac; plural noun: vacs
  1. 1.
    another term for vacuum cleaner.

  2. 2.
    BRITISH
    another term for vacation.
They are not considering it an abbreviation.

As mani mani mentioned, these games are supposed to fun and light-hearted.
