I am a very good speller. My wife, sister, mother, brother, etc. all ask me how to spell words when they don't know. However, the arrival of Manoeuvre on my radar makes me think of other games I never spell right when I enter them in the search box. In no particular order, followed by common misspellings.

I still can't spell this one reliably. I just put in 'Carc' when I want to find it.

Carcasone

Were it not for the game, I would not know how to spell Tigris & Euphrates. I never actually misspell this one, but I probably would otherwise

Obviously if you didn't know the pun, you'd spell it Bonanza.

This one I can spell, but have no clue how to pronounce. Two dots over an A means nothing to me. I just call it Igel.

This one kicked my butt until I realized it's "Aches," just with the last two letters transposed. Before then, it was:

Easy to spell, once you know it's just the letter M. But then it becomes impossible to find unless you know a trick or two.
