If you haven’t checked out WEBoggle, the online version of the popular Hasbro game lately (or at all), then now is a good time to do so. Evan Simpson, the creator and administrator of WEBoggle, has recently added a second board to keep it from breaking. Yay!
He’s also now blogging here, where can tell him how much you are addicted to his game and why you think “poo” should be an acceptable word. Also, he is now accepting donations to keep the site running. We should all give him money.
Admit it – just the sight of this board makes your heart rate speed up a little. One of the great advantages of WEBoggle over regular Boggle is that you can enter as many guesses as you like, and you won’t get punished for guessing words that aren’t really words (like “poo”). This makes the game a bit more of a frenzied affair than the physical version. And unlike the physical version, there are no noisy letter dice to rattle around in a plastic container, only to have them all land on their edges and in need of extra adjustment before you begin playing.
By the way, my WEBoggle name is “silly bean.” (Anyone else brave enough to share their secret WEBoggle addict name?)
