Printable Boggle Word Game

Printable Boggle Word Game

Boggle is the classic word game where you try to find words in a 4x4 or 5x5 grid of letters. Boggle is a very fun game to play with family or friends, but not necessarily convenient to play everywhere. Print some of these boggle word game pages to play anywhere you may be, like on a long trip or at a restaurant waiting to be served.



Theme Boggle Word Game Rules (4x4 Version)

# of Boggle Players

At least 2. The more players there are, the harder it is to score points.

What's Needed to Play

Print out each of the printable boggle game pages you want to play. Make enough copies for 1 of each page for each player. Each player also needs a pen or pencil. You'll also need a watch that can time for 2 minutes.

How to Play Boggle

: Distribute 1 copy of one of the boggle game pages and a pencil to each player. Pass the page to each player up-side-down so that nobody has an advantage of seeing the page first. Start timing for 2 minutes and players will turn over their page and start looking for words.

Players can write down words they find in the grid that match the following rules:

Here's an example:

T E O V
E S R F
W N A P
C A R I

This is a valid occurrence of the word ERASE in the grid.
T E O V
L S R F
W N A P
C A R I

This is NOT a valid occurrence of the word ERASE in the grid since there needs to be another E for the end of the word.

How A Boggle Game Ends

There are 4 ways that you can end a boggle game. Just decide in advance which game play you'll use:
  1. Each printable boggle page can be considered a separate game.
  2. Play a certain number of rounds. Print out enough copies of each boggle game page, and when the pages are done, the game is over. Add up the points to see you has won.
  3. Play for a certain length of time. The disadvantage of this method is that you don't know in advance how many different printable boggle game pages you'll need. Print out plenty, just in case.
  4. Play up to a certain number of points. Again, you don't know how many pages you'll need, so print plenty in advance.

You may decide that you'll use a combination of rules. For example, you may decide to play 5 rounds or up to half an hour, whichever comes first.

Scoring Your Boggle Game

In boggle, you only earn points if no one else has found a word that you have and that word is a valid word from the grid. In order to determine which words can score, someone will read their list of words. If any two players have that word, then the word must be crossed off each list. When the first player is finished with their list, then the next player reads through their list and players cross off duplicate words. This continues until everyone had read their list and has a list of unique words they have found. Here is how to score the words:

This last scoring rule is not part of the standard boggle rules. It is a special rule for our theme based boggle word game pages. For example, if the theme was Space and someone found the word meteor the word would be worth 6 points (6 letters = 3 points, then double for theme match). In order to receive the doubled word points, the group has to agree that the found word matches the theme.

Theme Boggle Word Game Rules (5x5 Version)

The rules are the same as for the 4x4 version, except the smallest allowable word is 4 letters. The scoring is also slightly different:
