Boggler is played using a grid of lettered dice in which players attempt to find words in sequences of adjacent letters.
The goal of Boggle is to create words out of adjacent letters in a 4x4 letter grid. Select adjacent letters to create the word. You can select words horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. You can´t skip letters and you can´t use the same letter twice in the same word. You score points for all valid words you find in the grid. Duplicate or invalid words are worth zero points.
You score points based on the length of the word.
- Less than 3 letters = 0 point
- 3 letters = 1 point
- 4 letters = 1 point
- 5 letters = 2 points
- 6 letters = 3 points
- 7 letters = 5 points
- Over 8 letters = 11 points
Valid words are at least 3 letters long. All plural forms are allowed. All verb tenses are allowed.Words contained in larger words are allowed but each word must be entered separately.
The default letter distribution is:
