Got time for a game? Our leisure time should include games! Have you ever played Boggle? It is a fast-paced word game where players pick out words working against the clock. When my daughters were much younger and my mom was still able to travel, we would gather around the dining table and play several rounds of Boggle. Such a fun game, no wonder I like words!

Time for a game of boggle.


“Games” is the theme for Hughes Weekly Photo Challenge.  Because of Boggle’s requirement for using an hourglass to keep time for each round, I couldn’t resist adding this to the Weekly photo challenge: Time

Can you find some words in this photo? There are quite a few! The letters must touch each other going in any direction and cannot repeat. Share your answers in the comments!

Now…go play some games!

  1. I always enjoy your posts Terri. I’ve been giving games to the grandchildren for Christmas and their birthdays – old fashioned games such as dominoes and snakes and ladders. They go camping so they can take them away with them. Thanks for sharing at #overthemoon and have a great week!

  2. Never played Boggle. We’re more of a Scrabble family. I couldn’t find many words in the picture though, certainly nothing that hasn’t been mentioned. So maybe stick to Scrabble? 🙂

  3. I LOVE that noisy little game! I haven’t played it in years. I should pick it up for my daughter and I to play. Granted, my motive is two-fold, she needs practice in reading and this is a way to get her to recognize words without being “educational” and two it would be great quality time for us. Thanks for the post and the memories. A few words I found: bots, laps, sap, set, lie, cots, slap, nap

  4. I never played this before, but if the letters can adjoin horizontally, vertically and diagonally to zig-zag, then I found … to, in, an, cot, rest, ale, nib, yelp, tesla, and plain.

    My game of choice is usually backgammon. I even made a travel board by laminating a printout of a board and using buttons for game pieces… nice and light in the purse or suitecase! 🙂

  5. Never heard of this game before, Terri, so thanks for introducing it to me. I found a few words, the longest being Nails. I’m not very good at word games, preferring instead to solve puzzles. We should all play games more often as they certainly help everyone relax and have fun.
    Thanks for participating in this week’s challenge set by Ronovan.
    Have a great weekend.
