Challenge your friends to a word duel on this classic board game for iOS and Android. The goal in Boggle With Friends is to list down as many words as you can form from a grid of randomly generated letters. You earn points depending on the letters you used and their location on the grid.
The only restriction is that the letters you use have to be linked. You can’t just use letters from all over the grid. The pressure will build up as your try to compete with your friends in coming up with more words. Gain the upper hand by relying on our Boggle With Friends tips and tricks!
1. Train Your Eyes
The secret to winning in this game is to be able to spot words quickly. During your first few grids, you might be lost and find yourself with only a couple of four-letter words. That is perfectly normal. As you play more games, you will get used to spotting words faster because you will see patterns emerge from the scattered letters. Just keep looking at the board and focus on picking up as many words as you can.
2. Develop A System
You can avoid getting overwhelmed by the randomness of the letters by developing a system for spotting words. There is no standard rule for looking for words so just go with whatever is comfortable for you.
For example, you can try looking words starting from the top of the grid then slowly make your way down. Once you have a system, stick to it. Using the same system habitually will help you create words faster after practicing a few times.
3. Mind Your Numbers
The game will automatically score the words you form so you don’t have to worry about computing for them. What you do need to worry about is how you will score more points. As soon as the grid appears, list down as many words as you can.
When you are comfortable with the number of words you have, you can start focusing on high-scoring words with the remaining time. Try to think of words that use those rarer letters to get more points for each word.
4. Build Your Vocabulary
Your best friend for any word game is the dictionary. Try to learn words that are not commonly used. Playing uncommon words means there is a good chance your friends would not have those words on their list. Try going for technical words or slang. Any word is good as long as it can be found in the English dictionary.
5. Go For Gold
Once you have a good grasp of the game and how to score higher, you might want to participate in tournaments. These tournaments are played the same way as normal games but you will be competing with players from all over the world. Join any of the various tournaments and see how your skills fare against some of the best global competitors in the game.
Spend hours of competitive fun with your buddies in Boggle With Friends! Just follow the tips and tricks above to give yourself an edge. Now, if you happen to know more tips for the game, don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments!

Why are some "words" are acceptable but some are not? I understand offensive words...but I tried using LINX. I was rejected 🤷

Look for prefixes (e.g. “anti”, “out”, etc.) and suffixes (e.g. “ing”, “ment”,“tion” etc.) There is a good chance that you will be able to use them to form longer, higher- scoring words (“ e.g antitrust, “explaining, “extraordinary” etc.)
Similarly, compound words can often be found in boards often be found, so keep an eye for simple, basic words that you often see used in compound words (e.g. “life” “fish”, “book”, “friend”, “baby” etc) When spotted, they can often be used to create several high-scoring words (e.g. lifeline, lifelong, lifeless, lifetime, etc)

You can’t use “any” word. The easily offended liberals had words banned from the game.

Very frustrated with this game I’ve played since 2011 - I bought a new iPhone and everything transferred over from my older iPhone but now I can’t play the game without it pausing while I’m spelling out a word. It’s almost like the letters are getting stuck but then also a certain letter I touch will also trigger the pause game feature. This has significantly impacted my gameplay and now I’m losing every game to people I’ve played with for years. If this can’t be fixed I’m done with Boggle. I have the latest version of the game and I’ve tried everything in the help section of the game although I can’t find anything regarding this particular issue.
