This boggle solver finds words in the boggle grid; to use it, enter the letters in the grid
in the quick entry block (in rows, reading from left to right and top to bottom, like the demo).
Use the back and next buttons to page through the possible words, ranked by score. The solver
will highlight the path through the matrix (green = start, red = end, yellow = middle letter).
This 4x4 boggle solver gives you a list of word ideas ranked by points and shows you where they are on the word grid.
Enter your letters in the box (need 16 letters for 4x4 boggle grid) and hit the load button. The grid will populate
with the letters and the boggle helper will show a path through the grid for that word. For the path through the word grid:
Green is the starting point, Red is the last letter, and Yellow is for everything in-between. Many browsers will also show
lines connecting the letters (this works better for desktops & new tablets). Desktops and big tablets will also show a
word-list in the center of the screen; you can click through the list of pick words and double-click on a word to see it's
path through the word grid.
This boggle word finder is based on the enable dictionary; we've created a couple of alternative versions of the solver which have been
tweaked for different games. We have another version of the boggle word finder that is a scramble
with friends cheat (with scores for that game). We also have versions for 5x5 grids
and 6x6 grids. If you are trying to solve a word scramble (single line of letters, not a boggle word grid),
we also have a tool to unscramble words.
We've started keeping a list of places to play.
The leading 4x4 boggle game that we're aware of is Zygna's Scramble with Friends. Pogo also has a game called Boggle Bash, which is
another option for those of your who like to play 4x4 boggle. There are several variants of boggle available at the Puzzle Baron's
website - they call it Word Twist and have 4x4 and 5x5 versions available. Finally, Hasbro has released an online version of their
Boggle game which you can play on their website. Know of another
version of the game (word grid search using 4x4, 5x5, or 6x6 grids)? Send us an email and describe any special rules, we can take a
look at customizing a solver...
One potential strategy element to consider in selecting words for traditional boggle is the likelihood of another player finding the
same word in the grid. This is very much a judgement call - the boggle word finder identifies a list of words, ranked by points, but
you may want to focus your efforts on the more obscure selection. The boggle cheat isn't perfect - if you're really good at rattling
off prefixes and suffixes for a word (including plurals), it may be faster to just do this manually as you play. In this case, you
would grab a root-word from the boggle cheat (DESIRE) and watch out for obvious versions of the word (desires, desired, etc.) which you
can rattle off as you play without re-looking at the boggle cheat.
