If you can't find your old Boggle game, you're in luck! Information is provided about how to play and score the game.

Quote
When the timer starts, each player searches the assortment of letters for words of three letters or more (four or more on the 5x5 board). When you find a word, type it into the blank and press the ENTER key.

Words are formed from adjoining letters. Letters must join in the proper sequence to spell a word. They may join horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, to the left, right, or up-and-down. No letter cube, however, may be used more than once within a single word.

Figure 1 shows how "SOIL" can be formed using the adjoining letters S, O, I, L.

Figure 2 shows an incorrect attempt to spell "SOILS": you can only use each letter cube once within a given word.

Figure 3 shows an incorrect attempt to spell "SOAR": no skipping is allowed; consecutive letters must be on adjacent cubes.

Any word (noun, adjective, adverb, etc.) is acceptable as long as it can be found in WEBoggle's fairly complete word list. Plural nouns are allowed, as are all verb tenses. Words within words are also permissible; e.g.,spare: spa, par, are, spar, pare. Proper names, abbreviations, contractions, hyphenated words and foreign words are not accepted...

in case it's not clear - this is an online boggle game and it's actually a great implementation - and it's fun to see how others score alongside you.
really well done and clean interface  thumbs up
