I Have A Moral Question

I get a trivia email daily. It has a trivia question which I usually have to look up by googling the question. I also play a word game where I have 4-8 letters I have to make words out of. I look words up on a site that scrabbles the letters for me. Now, I am doing some of my all famous double thinking and wondered.......Is that fair? I am learning from doing both of these things but, is it really playing fair? Your thoughts please.

I think @LoriAMoore has pretty much verbalized my opinion on the issue.

Unless you are making money from it, it is fair and it's all part of the fun

I do not do those games although I have done the word one. My husband uses my brain as a resource on the trivia.

So you are your husband's personal database.

I agree with those who have stated that if you are just doing this for fun, and not for monetary gain received for beating others in the game, then it is not cheating.

What Lori said. I like Wordscapes, but they have some dang goofy words that they do (and do not) accept, so sure, I'll use the word unscrambler.

I am wondering about it. Not playing for money, just for fun.

If you're not being paid for it, consider it a learning process else if being paid, you're cheating but only if the organizers don't expect you to cheat.

I play trivia games on the computer and do crosswords. I enjoy learning so if need be I don't play fair (cheat). The games are for my enjoyment and education. I am not playing an opponent so why not? If I don't look to see why I was stumped, how can I improve?
