Great Game A Boggle like game against random online players. Because the games are so short it's a great way to spend a few minutes while you're waiting. I like the random opponents but it would be cool if there was also an option to play a closed game with friends.

STILL STOPS BEFORE THE GAME IS OVER It's annoying that the game ends before the clock runs out. I'm playing and have 7-8 seconds left and it ends with the clock still going. Also, it doesn't recognize "ade" as a word!!
