What can I say. Boggle is ridiculous. It's a fast paced wordgame aimed at the quantity of your words and not the quality.
The game is played by shaking a plastic container containing Dice with letters on the sides. Once someone has shaken the counter, you then flip the sand timer and it begins. What begins you say? Why, Boggle of course!
during the 3-minute game ( yes 3 minutes) you must try and write as many words as you can see in the container. Words can only be formed so long as each word is adjacent to one another. Words gain a certain number of points depending on their length, although you'll find that the majority of the time you will be finding 4 letter words and pluralized versions of other words already on your list.
The game is fairly easy to find in charity shops, and I bring this down to its replay value. After a few games a night, the game will tire. Its fast paced nature lends itself to fatigue and you will often find yourself looking for a slower game where there isn't such a competitive edge. As a time-filler however, this is highly ranked. At 3 minutes a game, there's no reason not to do a 'best 2 out of 3' game.
Whilst not the most thought provoking game (there's really no TIME to think) it can prove as a very effective ice-breaker and time filler.
Summary: good in short bursts
