Bloggle

As many of you know, Boggle is the greatest game ever invented. Parker Brothers did not realize its true potential however. In order to maximize Boggle, these are the Cool Kid rules.

1. Variable 5-10 minute time limit depending on player preferences.
2. FIVE LETTER MINIMUM for all words.

All other rules are normal Boggle rules.



The goal is to find words by jumping letter to letter in any direction on the board. You cannot skip over letters or use letters more than once. On this board, for example, you cannot create the word SMILE. Even though all the letters are connected, you have to jump over the "I" to get from "S" to "M". And even though you can find both ZELDA and RAIDEN, those are not eligible words (unless you're playing video game geek Boggle.) No proper nouns!

This is actually a pretty good board. I was able to find over twenty words. You can see my list by clicking Here and then dragging your mouse down the screen to...
Sword, Arrow, Arrows, Drowsy, Slime, Sensor, Sensory, Ordain, Gelled, Soaring, Daring, Sedge, Ledge, Sledge, Miles, Silly, Mills, Milled, Wordy, Roars, Melding, Darns, Mildly, Easily, Worry, Sorry, Drain. And is Dingle a word? As in Dingle berries?
Here.

So... Show me your power move!

Sorry, Johnbai, I have never gotten the the appeal of Boggle and still don't. I guess it works pretty well as a pattern-recognition test (kinda like the word seach puzzles that are so popular in newspapers. As a social exercise, four folks sitting in silence, staring and breathing and scribbling, for ten minutes at a time, interrupted only by brief bouts of arguing (is PANED a word?) seems to me not really the most engaging way to spend an evening.

Then again, "Boggle is the best game" is what we'd call a weak thesis in class: it's not very specific, and in the end, it really isn't arguable: you either like it or you don't.

Have fun!

So you mean, because it's a proper noun, I can't suggest "Helga Diarys"? No, of course not, I used the "A" twice. How about "uniarrows"? Is that a word? Or would you please, just this once, let me have the phrase "Ride Lyle", even though it's a command phrase AND it has a proper noun? Please? Lyle would be ever so grateful if you did.

You should see my version of Scrabble... hmm... maybe I'll get around to demonstrating that....

Comparing Boggle to word search puzzles is like comparing Olympic diving to drifting down a river in an inner tube. Boggle is proactive Jumbles! It IS the best game ever!

Wordy was in my original list Diane, but kudos to all your other contributions, and Steve's too. And Molly's DIARY. Well played!

Hmmm, I'll it if my co-players are you and Di at Cafe Septieme, but otherwise, I think I'm gonna have to go with Walter on this one. Now Monopoly, that's the best game ever, no, Pictionary, no, Dictionary, no, Trivial Pursuit, no, that apples and pears thing you were on about at Christmas, no ....

Oh, heck, happy belated birthday.
