Word Ways


Alan Frank


The game of Boggle consists of sixteen cubes with letters on each face, which form a random 4-by-4 array when thrown like dice into the holes of a plastic grid. The object of the game is to form as many words as possible in three minutes, using the King's Move in chess, but without using any cube more than once in spelling out a word. Three and four letter words are scored one point, five letter words two points, six letter words three points, seven letter words four points, and eight letter words or longer eleven points.
