eWord Challenge is a Boggle online word game in English and Spanish. It's a digital reboot of three popular Boggle variants: (a) 4x4 Classic Boggle, (b) 5x5 Big Boggle, and (c) 6x6 Super Big Boggle — playable on desktop, tablet and smartphone using any web browser.
No download is needed to start playing online Boggle game. No email address or personal information is asked to register a player account. Even guest players have full access to all the game's features except the saving of preferred settings and Elo rating. Loading is fast — all of the pages are ads free!
There are several settings that can be configured to suit different skill levels. Players can choose the right board size, time limit, word length, scoring method, etc. The default Dictionary is American (US) with option to include other English dialects such as GB, CA and/or AU, all of which are compiled by SCOWL (And Friends).
Dice of the 4x4 board can be configured based on the "original" Boggle version of 1972 or on the "new" letter distribution that is optimized to yield the most number of possible words. With the old setup, words are harder to discover and this is preferred by the experts. Dice in the 5x5 and 6x6 boards are always based on the modern configurations.
"Play solo" mode is equipped with a search button to aid the learning of new English words. Multiplayer sessions could be free-for-all or by teams. One player must act as "Host" to create a session and the rest may join as "Challengers". Closed sessions could be made exclusive with a private code or minimum Elo allowed.
The scoring adheres to the traditional Boggle point system according to word length but implements right-minus-wrong rule to penalize adventurous players. Options for this setting are "Cancel if common", "Count all words" (no cancel) and "Score shared by finders". Abbreviations and known acronyms are accepted but given no score.
Players are ranked using the Elo rating system. Bonus Elo is awarded every round to the top 2 and solo players. More points are at stake during official tournaments. The all-time list of Top 50 players is being updated in real-time.
Playing Boggle game is a good way to test spelling skills and sharpen the brain. It's filled with fun and thrills with results that are very unpredictable. Having the most words does not guarantee a win. At times, those with fewer words may snatch the win with long or unique finds.Tips: It takes focus, good memory and diligence to stay competitive! Remember the rules of past and present tenses, plural forms, comparatives and superlatives to create more words by adding ED, S/(I)ES or (I)ER/(I)EST. Rescan the board and watch for *ING(S), *ER(S), *IER(S), *TTER(S) including RE* patterns — true Bogglers are too smart to miss them. Finally, review the list of entered words once in a while to save points from score deductions due to careless (typo) misspelling. Learn more.
