    You really have to use the P because that's the only way you make a word with "SA_"

    Unless you play a relaxed rule with foreign borrowings and abbreviations.

    Are you saying you don't have the sac to use Strategic Air Command?

    Sac - a pouch within an animal or plant often containing a fluid.

    I didn’t know that was foreign.

    Acronyms aren't allowed in Scrabble. Otherwise 'SA' would be a valid play.

    Doesn't sac without the k derive from the french?

    I might be wrong, but I always thought that it was a foreign borrowing, even when used for anatomy.

    If we're not allowed to use words 'borrowed' from other languages, we won't be able to play scrabble at all.
