Why We Like It:
Boggle is a fantastic game. It is most enjoyable and challenging when you play with others who are your intellectual peers. I love playing this with my brother (a lawyer), my dad (a geologist), my mom (who knows everything), and various and sundry other people. Turn the timer over and watch the pencils burn up the paper! Remember, you earn points only for words 3 letters long or longer, AND for words that no one else comes up with. A challenge? You bet!
You can make all kinds of words from letter cubes that are adjacent to each other. It's also a great way to learn new words (mostly out of desperation). Be sure to keep a dictionary handy to check one another's word efforts. How about these that I picked up by playing the game: scree, scurf, jape, berm, and many more. This is a great game for small get-togethers. The game can last one round or many, depending on the group.
