Blue Boggle game box.Boggle is a word game where the objective is to have the most points at the end of the game of each three minute game.  The game consists of 16 six sided letter cubes that are held in a small plastic grid with a covered lid.  One player shakes the grid to jumble the letters around and then, each player has 3 minutes to find as many words as they can from the jumbled letters.  Each player records as many words as they can create from the letters that are adjoining horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The key is that each letter cannot be used more than once within a single word.  The more words a player can find, the more points the player earns.
