Boggle With Friends is a word game where players try to create as many words as they can within a time limit. They do this by touching the mobile device’s screen and dragging their finger across the letters that form a word on a 4×4 grid of random letters. Each game lasts three rounds after which the scores are totaled to determine the winner. 

The game will pit players from around the world together to compete in “Match of the Day” or the player can connect with friends to challenge each other to a match. There are also tournaments where you can participate in real-time challenges in order to earn more prizes. 

Boggle With Friends also features Power Ups that help the player in various ways; some provide more time, others rearrange the letters in the grid, and some provide a bump to your final score. These can be purchased with coins that the player earns from competing in different competitions within the game. 

Boggle With Friends is available on Android and iOS. It is free to play but some features require in-app purchases. 


Boggle With Friends helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Time Management: Working under pressure. 

The player needs to complete as many words as possible within the time limit and create combinations of letters that will score the most points. Working under pressure and focusing on the task at hand is essential for winning the rounds and the game overall. Players who struggle with working under pressure can use the Time-related power ups in order to provide themselves with an extra few seconds until they get more accustomed to the time limit and the object of the game. 

Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Every round of the game changes the letters and their order in the 4x4 grid. This means that players need to use their flexibility in order to see new combinations of letters and work quickly to make as many of them as possible before the time runs out. For players who struggle with flexibility, using the power ups that rearrange the letters on the grid can help see things from a new perspective if the player is feeling stuck.
