well ren was a last gasp chance (apparently it's an accepted abbreviation for rennaisance and Renew), but a zoon is the next stage of a fertilized egg and a godsend to scrabble players.

Games I can WIN at!! But seriously, my vocabulary is much larger than the average person's, and much smaller than that of the avid player of word games. What this means is, when I play a game like Scrabble or Boggle or something, I often either win big or lose big. I don't consider either one very fun.

But what bugs me is more fundamental than that. I prefer "self-contained" games. I just made that term up, but what I mean is, all the information you need to play is in the game itself. Of course games like that tend to be number games--Rummikub, Racko, etc. If I'm playing Scrabble, whether I know words like "zoon" has a direct impact on how well I do. Of course if I felt like it I could study up on good Scrabble words. That might increase my score, but it wouldn't increase my enjoyment of the game.
