Apparently. Any recommendations for a good dictionary?

In the meantime let's see how right this one is. :P

I don't understand why people use dictionaries to play these games at all. At that point, it's not a "Vietnamese word-association game", it's an English word-association game in Vietnamese clothing.

Be that as it may, it can be one of many ways of picking up vocabulary. Sure, a word like "zombie" might not be all that useful, but I find it a interesting divergence to drilling vocab from a textbook or reading. Just my opinion though. I can't speak for anyone else. Nor do I feel any need to defend the game really. Just giving a thought or two.
