Amazon.co.uk Review

Boggle is a three-minute word game for any number of players (you can even play alone) and is suitable for anyone over the age of eight. The game includes the special Boggle tray, which is the bottom part of the clear cube container, containing 16 letter dice and a sand timer which lasts for three minutes--you must supply your own pens and paper. The dice are placed in the Boggle container and given a good shake. Players must then place the container upright to allow the dice to settle with one letter on each side facing up. The sand timer is set, and you have to make out as many words as possible from the letters facing upwards before the sand timer runs out. The letters used must be from adjoining dice, and you can only use each letter once in any word. Words can be singular or plural in form and can be in any tense, so long as they appear in any standard English dictionary. In fact, it is a good idea to have one of the main dictionaries of record to hand, for when the inevitable disputes arise.

There are some other minor rules, all of which are explained in the directions for play (for example, you aren't allowed to have foreign words or abbreviations) but the game itself is quite uncomplicated. All you need to bring is a good vocabulary. As soon as the timer runs out, every player stops writing immediately. Each player then takes it in turns to read out the list of words they have compiled. Any word that has been recorded by another player is discounted and does not score--other words score from one point for a three or four letter word, up to a maximum of 11 points for any word of eight letters or more.

To win the game, you must be the first player to reach a pre-agreed score, or the player who has the highest score after a pre-agreed number of rounds.

This is a thinking game for adults and an ideal way to extend the vocabulary of the younger players. Ben King

This game is absolutely brilliant, it's like a sprint version of Scrabble but slightly different. We had access to a game of Boggle over the summer holidays and never have I seen our 'I'd rather watch paint dry than read' son enjoy a game involving words so much. It had everyone gripped from our 9 year old daughter to Nana who has two degrees in English. The adults got very competitive and slightly ruthless as to words they tried to use and the kids practised their spelling without even realising it. It's so good that I intend to buy a copy for us and 8 copies as Christmas presents.

Boggle is serious fun. Roll the 16 letter dice and make words. It's simple. Your words only count if you're the only one to have them. And because you reroll and reposition the dice each round, there's virtually limitless replays.
The only thing I could fault this for is the minimum age. I'm not sure that 8 year olds would have the wordpower to use it effectively. 10 might be more appropriate.

Encountered Boggle in the cottage we stayed in on last year's walking holiday. We throughly enjoyed it, and so bought one for ourselves and provided some to various people for Christmas presents. The recipients also reported back they liked Boggle (maybe they were just being polite - but we have not heard of any family arguments over the game).

I bought the game to play in school with Y5 pupils - they love it and it's great for their vocabulary development; however it did not include the timer and this was not made clear in the advert from the third party.

The game of Boggle is fantastic, but I would get the "Travel Boggle To Go - Full size Boggle in a handy case!" instead.

This version of Boggle, you twist to release the cubes and then shake them within a dome. You then twist back into position to set the cubes again. The problem with the fixed roof is that people tap on it with their pens and you invariably end up with little blobs of ink and scratches on the lid. It is also quite difficult to see the letters in some circumstances, we tend to play at night on a table with a single light overhead, and the light bounces off the lid and gives some glare, so you can't quite see.

The automated timer is nice though - it kicks in when you twist the letters into place, and automatically beeps at you when your time is up. This is an improvement on the egg timer, which often gets forgotten if you've got a good set of letters and everyone is sucked in and not concentrating on the timer! The beep is quite pleasant - not too loud, just right really.

I would say THIS is probably a better 'travel Boggle', as the pieces can't get lost, so you can just throw it in a bag to take somewhere. For playing at home though, the old style one with the removable lid is better.

This has to be the best, all inclusive, family game ever invented.
You can't beat this classic model.

A brilliant game, easily portable on holiday,and fun for all ages and stages. Great for spelling and combine that with spatial awareness too. Most of all it's a quick, short game if you like, or endless hours of entertainment. You'll need some paper and pencils. Have FUN!
