Boggle Help

Play Boggle online and test your skill at making words from letters. Each of these games will present you with a matrix filled with letters. The objective is to form words by concatenating adjacent letters. Letters that are to the left, right, on top, bottom, or on a diagonal to each other are all acceptable. A timer will count down and when time expires your score will be computed and compared to the computer’s score.

If you’ve played Boggle online at wordplays before and want to revisit a puzzle, you can find a Boggle puzzle using the puzzle number in the adjacent dialog. If the puzzle number entered is invalid a random puzzle will be shown. Boggle puzzles retrieved using the puzzle number are not eligible for the high score list.

WILD CARD BOGGLE

Wild Card Boggle is similar to Classic Boggle with some small differences that really change the game. The game uses a 3 x 3 matrix and one letter in the matrix is randomly replaced with a Wild Card (boggle wild card). Any letter can be used in place of the Wild Card. Valid words must be at least four letters long. The Wild Card can be used as different letters in the same puzzle, but cannot be used more than once in an answer.

SCORING

Words are valued at 1 point for each letter in excess of two letters. A three letter word is worth 1 point, a four letter word is worth 2 points, and so on. Words formed by adding an s, ‘ed’, ‘es’, or ‘er’ are all valid. For example, chase, chases, chaser, chased and chasing are all valid if they can be made from adjacent letters in the matrix.
