      If you're stuck for something to do for half an hour then this will easily fill the time

      Super Boggle really is SUPER. It's a new and improved version of the original Boggle and in this version you can choose to have either a 4x4 grid (the original style) or a 5x5 grid. The 5x5 is more difficult because the minimum word size you are allowed is 4-letters. But the rules for the 4x4 are the same as in the original game and a 3-letter word is perfectly acceptable. This Super version also has lights in its base and it flashes slowly throughout the game, speeds up a bit when the time is running out, and goes completely mad when your three minutes is up. This is a much better system than the old egg-timer because you don't have to keep your eye on it all the time whilst also trying to find words.

      For those of you who aren't familiar with the concept of Boggle then let me explain. You have a set of dice with a letter on each side, rather than a number. The dice all go into the Boggle dome and you shake them all up and then let them settle in whatever order they land. You then have three minutes to make as many words as you can by linking letters across-ways or diagonally. Each word is worth a number of points (decided by how many letters it has) and the person at the end of the game with the most points wins.

      This game is great and you can play with as little as two people. You can have as many people playing as you like - your only restriction is how many people you can fit in a room! It's a really handy tool for learning new words and it makes you think throughout each 3-minute session, which has got to be good for your brain, right?

      All in all I can't fault this game. It's easy to transport so you can take it on holiday and anyone of any age can play (assuming that they're old enough to read).
