Scrabble fans have voted and there is a new word to play for points. Starting Sunday “geocache” will count as a word and be included in the official Merriam Webster Scrabble Dictionary. Geocache, spelled G-E-O-C-A-C-H-E, is a verb meaning to find items in a treasure hunt using a GPS. Hasbro spokesperson Shawn Rowan said 'geocache' beat out 15 other nominated words.
