The one word which kept me short of a rosette. I don't recall ever encountering it before — definitely not a word that makes me slap my head in frustration for having missed. W-a-a-a-a-y less common than nuanced.

Maybe this is another geographical thing - European v. non-European? I didn't play that particular game, but louche is a word I know well and one JCC uses often, unflatteringly and usually of actors.

I was going to say I know TOUCHÉ, but I see the word is LOUCHE. Never heard of it!

Not common to me, though I did come across it (maybe for the first time?) within the last few months.

Been known to me for some time as an adjective implying sexual sleaziness ... one that finds frequent use here with respect to the reporting of the activities of certain politicians ...
