Great game in very good condition, same design box but Parker is the maker not Hasbro, the 3 minute word game for 1 or more players age 8+, fast dispatch, UK SELLER
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

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.
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.
You can't beat this classic model.
