VI is invalid to play in Scrabble

About the word VI

VI should not be played in Scrabble as it does not appear listed in any of the various Scrabble dictionaries. It is defined as a cardinal number that is the sum of five and one. In everyday life, you are most likely to see VI used as a Roman numeral where V equals 5 and I equals 1. Because of this, VI can be classed as a non-standard English word, which is why the Scrabble rules prohibit its use.

If you have picked up the letters tiles V & I in your current game and need a word to play, we have some suggestions for you. Try the words VID, VICE, VIBE, or VIRUS, which are all valid to play in Scrabble. If you need more suggestions, check out our full list below for inspiration or use our word finder.
