An extra 6,500 words have been added to the official Scrabble wordlist, including a host of modern terms such as ridic, lolz, emoji and sexting.
Facetime, for example, will gain you 15 points in a game from now on, while bezzy is worth 18.
Obviously Twitter had a lot to say about the new words.
And some eagle-eyed Scrabble fans noticed we're still missing "kwyjibo".
