For some reason, I noticed that there's an "A" and "B" at the beginning, a "C" in the middle, and a "D" at the end. Four consecutive letters of the alphabet. I did some digging for similar words, and today's Brain Game features one of them:

word with four consecutive letters
of the alphabet to form a word.

_ U _ I _ _ U S
