Boggle Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

Now you can take the fun of Boggle on the go. The original three-minute word search game has been updated to feature an all-in-one, compact case that holds and locks the letter dice into place. The object of the game is the same: score points by finding connected letter dice that form words and be the player with the highest point value at the end of the game to win.

To play, twist the case to raise the lid. Shake the case to move around the lettered dice, and turn the lid to set the dice back into place in a new formation. Once the lid is closed, the built-in digital timer will automatically begin. With one minute left, the light flashes red, and at the end, the timer lets you know the round is over. You score one point for every 3–4-letter word, two points for five-letter words, and so forth, up to 11 points for words of eight letters or more. Race to see which player can list the most words.

Boggle comes with a case with electronic timer and game rules. The game is for two to four players.

Is It Fun?

With its compact redesign, Boggle is now a great game to take on the go as well as a fun way to play at home. Boggle is never the same game twice. It's fast-paced, fun, and competitive, and it's great for reinforcing reading and vocabulary skills or for any fans of word games.

Who It’s For

Boggle is for ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The game includes one button cell battery.

Pencil and paper are not included.

Hasbro promotes the game as being "quieter" than the original Boggle, that let you shake the letters in a plastic dome. We find that amusing, as part of the fun of the original Boggle was clattering the cubes around. Still, it's the same game, and the take-along and self-contained elements promote ease and prevent loss of cubes.
