Crashes after opening
by Foodie Literature on 2019/10/19 14:26
Suddenly I cannot use the app. It crashes right after opening. It’s unclear why as I haven’t changed anything on my phone. This would be better as a 5x5 grid - very repetitive word options.
Good game / long ads
by LareyMcD on 2019/10/17 03:53
I enjoy the game but waiting 30 seconds after every move while the ad rolls on and on is disruptive.
Stop the ads!
by PookieMiller on 2019/10/16 05:09
Make the ads stop! Is there a version of this without ads? I am so sick of them.
Great game but crashes
by Gogumagirl on 2019/10/15 20:32
This game is super fun and addicting to play, but it crashes quite often. I’ve started a tournament and spent tickets for extra boosts just for the game to crash and for me to lose all my tickets spent without getting them back to my account. It’s frustrating when you only have a couple of tickets and lose them without even getting a chance to play. I’ve also had times where I would get the daily rewards but the mega bonus reward would somehow get skipped. Seems weird/fishy.
Great fun if you can put up with continual bugs
by Cablecutter! on 2019/10/15 13:52
Zynga why is Boggle With Friends so consistently and maddeningly full of unresolved bugs ? If I didn’t enjoy playing so much I would delete . This has been going on for years and years . Fix the bugs ... they are maddening !
Fix the daily event already!!!
by Macaroni&cheeze on 2019/10/15 13:45
It hasn’t worked since end of July!
Hate the ads!
by LaughingMama on 2019/10/15 04:23
Like the game but please make it available without ads!!!
I don’t often make purchases
by Mrs TScar on 2019/10/13 22:52
I don’t often make purchases and found it ok to play w/o purchases. I held my own until I purchased coins and power ups. I figured Since I was enjoying myself. Huge regrets. Now my opponents seem to beat me often by just a few points. I am not gaining any ground point wise. And I feel like I am playing a computer not a another person. Also, after clearing all the chest daily collections I get to the big prize and it just resets to another board no reward. Lastly, I had a prize to collect and it showed error occurred. None of this happened before the purchase. It’s a zonk.
Too many ads
by None none none none none no on 2019/10/13 04:31
I love Boggle, but the ads are getting ridiculous. There are too many, they are too long, you can’t X out of them, and some of them are borderline offensive.
Preferred Scramble
by Oshiama on 2019/10/13 02:49
I much preferred Scramble before they combined into Boggle. I find the puzzles not as much fun. I enjoy finding lots of words and these puzzles offer less for the casual player. The tournaments are great for the serious people but average players don’t have much chance. Daily challenges are also difficult for average players
Unable to receive free rewards. And video rewards
by Birdy45678910 on 2019/10/11 17:39
Constantly have to close the app to get it to update and show matches. Constantly have to update to update ticket amounts. Had this game before years ago and had paid for a ad free version. Now I don’t have it. And it has too many ads should have a ad free version Have not been able to get my video rewards for days.
Love it, but....
by Hemy & Leo on 2019/10/10 12:14
Great game. Competitive. Fun rewards. But waaaaaaay to many ads between rounds, some of which are 30 seconds long. I’d happily pay for the app and rate it 5 stars if the ads could be turned off.
Ads
by SalGal 26 on 2019/10/10 11:46
Ads are too long!!! Need a version that you can pay for and eliminate the ads.
Restart your streak at 0 even when you didn’t lose
by developer is a cheat on 2019/10/09 22:21
The company running this app will restart your win streak randomly. I’ve had it restart three separate times, right as I get close to my record, and I don’t lose, but it sets my streak at 0. When I ask customer support for help, they tell me I’ve had lots of losses-even thought I’ve taken a picture after every win. Also, once you win too many tickets it will make it impossible for you to play the daily events (like Lightening Round Monday) because they want you to buy tickets. It will stay stuck on the same board and even when you delete and reset you get a new board (which is the exact same board) and that will freeze. This eliminating any possibility of winning more tickets. In addition, the android version allows you to see what your opponent is playing-but this version does not. Will be deleting.
Too many ads
by SupperClub on 2019/10/09 18:45
I love this game but it has too many ads. Between each session, there is a long advertisement for another game. Let me have a “pay to avoid ads” option. I also don’t like the power ups I wish it just letter players play. You know something is wrong when you beat an opponent for two rounds by double the points he or she has and then on the last round, they triple your score. I also wish it had a section for people who want to do words that are 4-5 letter minimum. That would be great for us serious word addicts
New update does NOT work
by Pfoodie on 2019/10/08 04:09
Does not work. Tons of glitches!
New start
by bajtre on 2019/10/07 14:54
Just switched over to the new boggle- liked the old streak better- this will take some getting used to😕
Boggle & Family
by VangeB on 2019/10/06 16:13
The family that Boggles together stays together! 2,000 miles apart but feel close when playing family members. Thank you Boggle!
Unacceptable glitch/cheat
by Jamhouse73 on 2019/10/06 03:16
.So I’m pretty sure I’ve either just been cheated against, or the game has horribly glitched. I played a game just now, round 2, and SOMEHOW my opponent has scored over 3700 points with finding 74 words. I’ve added up here larger words and it comes NOWHERE near the score she received. Her score should be somewhere around 1000 points for the round and it’s 3 times that. I’m currently at a win streak of 367 and I’m not happy about possibly losing a streak like this from someone who’s glitched or cheated the game. Or bc the game has glitched. Please do something about this. I’ve posted the proof on the Facebook page with direct screenshots from the game in question. I’ve worked very hard and taken a lot of time to get a streak that high and I’ve played this game for almost a decade and this just can’t happen.
Mom neglects children in favor of Boggle
by sansundertale184738-73 on 2019/10/06 02:17
Please help my mom has been addicted to Boggle for multiple months, we haven’t had an meal in days, she has been spending all of her time on Boggle and sending money for rent on the tokens. P.S. the game won’t even start on my phone
Used To Be My Fave

What is this new vibration w the update?!? Driving me ba-an-nas!
Ads are WAY TOO LONG
by Corolla17 on 2019/10/04 16:40
I like the game but after EVERY round I play I now have a THIRTY second commercial. I play several people and thus spend more time waiting for the ad to end. Don’t get this app unless you like watching long ads.
Too many ads
by Monkeypats on 2019/10/03 12:55
I love boggle so I thought I’d give this a chance. The ads though come between every round and are super long. There doesn’t appear to be a way to pay to go ad free. I have been playing for only a day and already I’m tired of the super intrusive ads. Probably not going to play much more... sad.
Cheated
by Dreadmaul on 2019/10/02 10:40
Too many times I play the daily, then just when I get to the super mega prize, it resets to day 1. I’ve played for years but now I’m deleting. Can’t take it anymore.
Won’t let you play solo
by Hedyh on 2019/10/02 03:52
Well it actually will but it takes tokens every time you play so they want you to buy tokens. I’d rather pay a few bucks for a game and play it a bunch than have to buy more rounds of toke s to play.
Amuses
by Scragglewart on 2019/10/01 22:40
Great for relaxing or passing time while waiting for something. However, the same word patterns appear over and over, which sort of makes it just a speed game. Lately, the commercials seem to take double the time they used to take. They are long enough now that I’d rather just quit playing rather than wait.

In Decline
by WHYooISooTHISooSOooDifficultoo on 2019/10/01 04:53
Since there is no way to provide feedback in the game I’m writing here. This has been a favorite game of mine for years the developers did a great job. It’s by far the best version of this game. Recent changes and making game play less fun. Haptics that I can’t turn off that are distracting to the game - An option to turn the vibrations off please! You took away tournament levels that I guess were expensive for you to maintain. Now it is very difficult to win games in tournament mode - for me less options mean less fun. It would improve the game to have more tournament options and not less. Ads are playing for longer and longer. A turn off. I would be willing to pay for the game to remove these. Reducing time to start a tournament would be something worth investing in. That has always been a problem - a serious amount of time is spent just waiting to start. More options to play off-line, please. Sometimes I am on a plane and have no connection. What I do right before traveling is try to start some games up but then when those are played through I can’t do much with the app. More stats would be fun. Would be nice to see things like most frequent works found etc, what times of day my scores are higher or lower (maybe I am better at night or in the morning, etc...), patterns that indicate how I can improve my game, word scores for tournament games to see which words we missed. In game feedback would enable you to get ideas from your users that could inform what the users would like to see to make an even better game.
My FAVORITE GAME APP
by Buttercups mom on 2019/09/30 19:20
This game is great fun. It helps keep my mind sharp and I love it. My daily Lightening Round is my favorite thing about the game. Mine has been stuck on a Monday for several months now. I’ve contacted them about with no response at all. PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!!!
Too Much Good Things
by DadPapaDeanReally on 2019/09/30 01:20
The game is good. The clever things are impressive, The promise of the games following was not easy and took multiple tries to get my real sign on in place. And I prefer to by known by sign on instead of my Facebook name. I recommend having a button to turn off the haptic feedback. But yes I love the game and connections. I am not treating my addiction. Thanks for the opportunity to opine.
Long ads
by gb4w2 on 2019/09/29 20:49
The ads have gotten longer and are very annoying! I will not play as often because of this
Ads are terrible
by cindy🎾🏓 on 2019/09/29 03:18
I purchased the game a few years ago and absolutely loved it. Played it multiple times per day. Recently I was forced to reboot and I lost all my previous games and now I get 30 second ads after every game. Frequently you can’t mute the ads either, so I always have to be aware of where I’m playing so as not to disturb others. So disappointing. Probably will quit altogether.
Boggle
by geg2game on 2019/09/27 16:36
Love the app except for ads between games. Word Streak was a better experience without the ads.
Kill the vibrations!
by Mbpr on 2019/09/26 17:37
Have played and enjoyed for years. Now you’ve added those awful vibrations. I can’t find a “game settings menu” for the kids od me. Let folks opt in instead to just imposing these distracting, annoying new “features!”
Paid version with no ads please
by sad dj thanks to you on 2019/09/26 11:57
Great game but the cost of power ups is too high and too many ads. I would pay for a full version with no ads. Glitches! Glitches! Glitches! Sometimes it won’t take a word during a game as if the word is not a word???
Yes, please! An ad free version!
by Kra-Bones on 2019/09/26 04:01
I spend almost as much time watching game ads as I do playing boggle. I would pay for and ad free version in a heartbeat.
Fast and fun !
by a friend of ali's on 2019/09/26 00:50
This game is fun and addicting! I love swiping words!
Will never be the same
by Jestdms on 2019/09/25 22:24
I was finally forced to switch over from the Scramble with Friends app. The old adage “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” comes to mind. I’m sure the Boggle app is fine, but it will never be the same as the Scramble app. I already don’t like the layout nor the color scheme. Lost this player.
30 second ads are ridiculous
by TrexFrisco on 2019/09/25 15:19
This app recently changed its ad feature to make a 30-second mandatory ad show after every play. It’s annoying and about to make me remove the app.
Deleted
by Carpfodder on 2019/09/25 03:58
Well, they’ve done it. Multiple 30 second and 20 second ads in a row and blasting the sound while they’re playing...love this game, but I’m done and deleting the app. Would love to see the stats on revenue - whether the additional ad $$$ offsets the losses caused by people bailing.
Great game but too many ads
by DC Momma on 2019/09/25 00:25
Love the game, but long video ads have deterred me from playing lately. The more you play, the longer the ads get. Mine are more than 30 seconds and they run every time I play a 2 minute game. Ugh!!
Cheese
by awsome saucce on 2019/09/25 00:21
This game is super fun and I really enjoy it so thank you to the creators!!!!!!L
Done with Boggle
by cklehmann on 2019/09/25 00:03
Love Boggle - who doesn’t?! - but the amount of time you’re forced to watch dumb ads between game rounds is now intolerable. Especially when the ads are mostly 30 second tutorials on how to play OTHER games. That’s 1.5 minutes of ads for every 6 mins of play time. Not interested. Done with the game.
Ads are soooo long
by emmiemum on 2019/09/24 11:10
I’ve played for years and have loved this game! But lately the ads have gotten so long! I feel like it’s a 45 second commercial after every game. Please stop That!
Games great latest improvements not so much
by Martha Reviews on 2019/09/23 13:45
I guess if you just downloaded the game you would be warned of the new vibrations setting, but if you’ve had the game for years and just turned it on, started a match and it starts vibrating even though you have the volume off, is annoying! I couldn’t get to setting fast enough to shut it off!! Why would something vibrating be anything but distracting in a word game? Love the game in all, but hate the lack of tickets and power ups it once had. I’m not buying them no matter how long I’ve been playing or how addicted I am!! Too many free fun word games out there. This is one of the best but greed is ruining it Put the tokens and power up levels back to where they were please
What Happened??? Give Me My Stuff Back!
by PolarCannon on 2019/09/23 12:34
I’ve been playing this game for years under all of its names. Never had issues. The sound randomly disappears sometimes, so I restart my device and that fixes it. (I need the “guy’s” encouragement as I play.) Except for today. When I opened the app after restarting, I was prompted to log back into Facebook, which I did. (And would do 2 more times because I couldn’t believe my eyes.) That’s when I noticed ALL of my coins (18), tickets (3109), and status (level 32) were GONE! GONE! GONE! In addition, all the games I was playing, along with recently finished games, were gone as well. The only thing that didn’t disappear were my super power-ups. I searched for help, but nothing applies, and there is no way to contact these people. (They really need to stop calling it “contact us” because, you know...you can’t.) I am irate. I faithfully sat through the torturous ads, and checked-in every day for coins and tickets all to basically get a giant middle finger from Zenga. Back at ya, guys! Right back at you.
Ads too long
by Haskelin on 2019/09/23 12:08
Ok guys, 30 second ads are too long in between games. I’m just closing the game out and restarting.
Horrible!!!
by Sharon r b on 2019/09/22 20:36
How do you turn off that horrible vibration??!!!!
Now With 30 Second Ads!
by Crowmagnon01 on 2019/09/22 20:10
Games are two minutes. Ads are 30 seconds— therefore you’re spending 25% of your time watching advertisements. How about a paid, commercial-free version?
Rr
by dwwiff on 2019/09/22 16:31
Game is good but wish I could see everyone I have played against
TOO MANY ADVERTISEMENTS !!
by blutaupia on 2019/09/22 15:25
Good grief, get rid of the ads!! They keep getting longer and longer. Or at least provide an ad-free version to buy. Now, I find it faster to just log off/quit Boggle whenever an ad appears rather than go thru the pain of watching them. I give Boggle a low score because the ads take the fun out of playing.
Pay to win
by TekuGai on 2019/09/22 13:16
As much as I love the challenge and the competition in this game, I can’t continue to play in the current money scheme. Needless to say, the ads are annoying, but mostly the point that there are paid ‘time-freezes’ and other assists that are generally unavailable to non-paying players disturbs me. The disadvantage is real. I’ll find another game. Thanks for the good times.
Plain game fun but ads have gotten longer and longer.
by colarm on 2019/09/22 04:14
Core game is fun. Tournament games are strange, not sure anyone can type that fast so must be paying for a lot of extra minutes... not fun. Biggest problem is the ads... they are getting ridiculously long and sometimes hard to get out of.
Too many ads
by loislane14 on 2019/09/21 01:51
I’ve stopped playing because I should not have to sit and watch minutes of ads. Please provide an ad free version. It’s too much between games.
Add plays in the background, deleting app.
by Pike826 on 2019/09/20 18:17
I used to like this game. Now, every time you open the app, an add plays in the background. The only way to stop they add is to force close the app. So annoying, deleting the app.
Too many ads
by Jwassenberg on 2019/09/20 17:44
This is a great game but I find myself waiting for advertisements almost as much as I'm playing the game! I'd gladly pay for an ad free version but it appears that's not an option. The ads even run in the background (sound only) during gameplay which drastically slows the response time of the game; very frustrating in a game where time is critical.
Super Mega Prize
by RetireeGigi on 2019/09/20 15:44
I have been cheated out of the super mega prize three times. When I get down to the last day, the message says that it has expired.
Nice game, bad implementation
by Gandalf Dumbledore on 2019/09/20 15:11
Interesting time killer. Enjoy the competition. However, the ads, especially auto play video with sound, are extremely annoying. Lately the length of ads with no exit has increased so much that the game is no longer payable. I had up to 30 games going simultaneously but I’ve seen most of my opponents drop off as well.
Can’t buy more tokens anymore!!!
by Lipglossjunky73 on 2019/09/20 11:33
I love this game and play it nightly so I splurge for the token packages. I went to pay for the 550 tokens for 25.00 and it won’t let me purchase! I’m essentially throwing my money away for doing this and they should be all over it and are making it difficult for me to do so!!! I’m the kind of sucker consumer this kind of app drools over. It’s forcing me to save my money which is cool but I’m willing to pay for the tokens.... the fact that it won’t let me do it is frustrating!!!
The ads are driving me nuts
by carly___nyc on 2019/09/20 02:01
Why won’t you just take my money people. Let me pay to remove ads. A 30 second ad after every single is driving me absolutely nuts. I started playing a couple weeks ago and I like the game itself but the ads are completely intolerable. I’m searching for a boggle app that will just allow to pay and play my boggle in peace 😫
Boggle with ADS...
by 6neck on 2019/09/19 22:36
Great game...but SO MANY ADS!!! Wasn't bad when you'd have to watch a short ad after every few games..after all..the game is free. But recently..every game now requires a 30 second ad that you can't exit from. They even put the INSTALL button where the "X" should be...pretty shady. Makes me reevaluate even giving 4 stars now. I'm thinking of taking my friends to another game with fewer ads where I don't waste as much time watching ads...they're not that good of friends. Lol
Too many ads - game is no longer enjoyable
by Yodagirl999 on 2019/09/19 16:48
I would happily pay $10 to have this game without ads. I won’t play anymore as I now have to wait 30 sec after every game and watch an ad (generally about games that are absolutely demeaning to women).
Ads are overkill!!!! Recently terrible
by Kurt Bermond on 2019/09/18 16:16
Loved the app but now there is always a 30+ second ad after EVERY game. It used to be maybe a 5 second ad 4 out of 5 games then a 30 second one. It’s way too much to have to sit through a 30-45 second ad to play a 120 second game!!!! I’ll give it another couple days but going to delete soon.
This is not boggle lol
by shaberk on 2019/09/18 13:07
This is an extreme bastardized version of boggle (like all apps; pay to win games these days) but if you find your friends and play fairly it can be fun. For some reason, every minute or 2 I get a Swiping noise, then sounds of an outdoor basketball game??? The chain hoop lol, the sneakers on pavement...???? Whether I’m 1/2 through a round or starting a round or just have it open. Once I close the app it stops so it’s definitely boggle. Take away the use of up 5 power ups ( like really...5 power ups??) and fix your glitches and this game would be gold..
Boggle
by Tbush69 on 2019/09/18 12:27
Game used to be great until they recently added these forced 30 adds, no longer a fan of the game and am considering finding a new game to play.
Fun game but....
by Mkk1215 on 2019/09/17 17:48
There are now 30 seconds of ads after every game that you can’t bypass. Takes way too long to play now
News Long Ads are Frustrating
by anb1124 on 2019/09/17 13:22
I play this game daily but recently, every single ad is 30 seconds long with no option to skip after a certain amount of time or anything. And there’s an ad after EVERY round. That’s a LOT of my time wasted. It’s enough that I’m considering deleting the game.
Background noise
by Ikas mom on 2019/09/17 10:31
Between games I get background noise even with game on silent and phone on vibrate. It’s annoying because the only way to stop it is exit game once it starts it won’t stop. It’s like a sound only ad without visual, sounds like a loud sporting event...going to take a break from game until this is fixed. Excluding this problem I played multiple times a day and very much enjoyed the app.
Great game, annoying ads, weird background noises
by Masa Belly on 2019/09/17 07:16
I love Boggle! I play it everyday! However, the ads have become increasingly annoying. Exiting out of the ads has become an unwanted game in itself, usually taking you to the app store or a website you didn’t ask for. Also, what is up with the “swoosh” sound that then leads to what sounds like a basketball game or a tennis match? It’s so obnoxious and overrides my phone settings somehow when I’ve turned the sound off. So no matter what, I hear it. So frustrating. What’s up with that, Boggle?
Was fun. Now just ads.
by Synthlabs on 2019/09/17 03:46
Enjoyed it for awhile even though it was missing several options I’ve enjoyed on other similar games. Ads were tolerable. Now the ads are intolerable. Can’t even pay to get rid of them so at this point I think they want people to quit using the game. So I am.
Annoying background audio
by dunkeynuts on 2019/09/17 01:43
Love this game and have been playing for years, however in the last week or so there has been an annoying audio clip playing in the background. Starts with a swoosh sound and then Sounds like a basketball game or something with people yelling. Plays even if audio is turned off and phone is on silent. Had to delete the app.
Why is creepy music playing
by JiMeKi78 on 2019/09/17 01:30
I put my phone on silent because I want silence when I play. Recently this game has started having some creepy music and sounds during play. STOP IT!
Mind boggling
by LeslieSantaFe on 2019/09/16 23:19
Love playing Boggle with friends!!!
Ads so distracting, makes fun game almost unplayable
by jdstubdfjlhfr on 2019/09/16 18:18
I used to love this game. Now every ad plays for 30 seconds. Less game, more billboard. I’m over it.
Need Ad Free Version
by emgee5050 on 2019/09/16 15:07
Love this game, but they recently went to 30 second ads and it’s just too much. Would happily pay for ad free version.
Game needs fixing
by LuckyDC on 2019/09/15 22:53
Fun game, but the allowing of mega time extensions in the flash (shortest) rounds is a HUGE negative. And the scoring change — from 250 for 1st and 100 for 2nd to 275 and 50 — incentivizes such “cheating” which has literally ruined the game. It’s just not fun anymore to “compete” while others use double the time in order to score a weak victory. The enjoyment of the game disappeared, and I have all but stopped playing. Ads are also a bit excessive, particularly the ones with no option to bypass after a few seconds. Get back to making a game for the players. And lock out Megas in the flash rounds so the great players can truly compete with each other!
Advertising changes

I’m writing this bad review to get the developers attention on the advertisements and background sounds. The ambient sounds of a crowd TAKE OVER MY PHONE and I have to completely close the app to get it to go away. Please fix!
Boggle rocks!

I ❤️ this game.
Something Sounds Buggy
by jrhoneybear on 2019/09/15 19:34
Just recently, my wife and I have noticed (on both of our iPhones) what sounds like some sort of broadcast coming in over top of the game, which makes me suspect a possible virus in the game.
Went From Five Star to One
by JJ from IL on 2019/09/15 17:27
I have been playing Boggle every single day for few years, and have always loved it, and have always rated it a 5 star app. However, two things have happened to change my mind: 1) The ads between plays have gradually become so frustratingly long, that I lose my sense of flow/ continuity in the game, and it’s just not fun, so I find myself just quitting the game. And 2) Even though I shut off sounds in settings, often I still have to listen to loud, jangling ads. It’s not only annoying to me, but often times it happens when I’m playing in a place where I must be quiet. I shouldn’t have to shut my device sound off completely, in order to play a quiet game of Boggle.
Great game, odd sound issue
by The_lachinator on 2019/09/15 16:55
Even with my phone on silent and in-game sounds turned off, I keep hearing this odd background sound bite every time I look at my final results from a game or tournament. It’s very annoying. I also wish there was an ad-free option available for purchase.
Sound doesn’t work anymore on iPhone 7

The wiggles
by Boughtabadbook on 2019/09/15 14:10
The letter blocks wiggle way too much. Very distracting.
Fix the sound bug, please!
by banba1 on 2019/09/14 20:40
I’m also getting the weird sound of a basketball game in the background after every game I play. I’ve checked all the settings (sounds are set to off, phone on silent mode), looked on every screen for a hidden ad, reviewed settings...no way to stop the noise, which, as other reviewers stated, is a problem if you’re trying to kill time in a public space.
Needs updating
by Blue in Florida on 2019/09/14 13:32
It used to be fun to win rounds and gain points toward rewards and higher levels. This game no longer gives points for winning regular games, only for tournaments. It now takes months rather than weeks to move up a level. This needs to be fixed.
Too many adds
by Love the audio Bible! on 2019/09/14 12:08
Been playing this game for years. But now they have these 30 second adds, and also this weird background noise- like street noise. Another reviewer described it as a baseball game in the background. Increasing the amount or length of ads doesn’t help you in the long run because people will play less and eventually not at all.
A fun find with one major flaw
by Aumazing on 2019/09/14 06:55
I love word games, and this was right up my street. The best part is being able to play in multiple languages. I agree with others that I would happily pay for an ad-free upgrade and would enjoy a powerup-free match mode. One negative thing — I don’t know if anyone else gets this, but after playing a round, there is often a “swoosh” sound followed by what sounds like kids playing ball on a playground with cars driving by. It is extremely annoying!
sounds
by H3pak on 2019/09/14 05:22
All of a sudden there's a baseball game sound playing randomly in the game. I have the app volume off And my phone volume off. It Still plays and is very annoying. I minimize the app and it still plays. I actually have to close it now. I've used this app for a very long time, but if this continues I will delete it. Looking for help!
Bad Update
by wojo11 on 2019/09/14 02:51
Ads between games are ridiculously long; now a full 30 seconds. Newer update needlessly eliminated some tournament levels and increased the wait time for tournaments to start. Completely ruins game play experience...
Word Streak
by klb2299 on 2019/09/14 02:13
I was going to give boggle a try but nothing moved with the app as was promised. The functionality of word streak is more consistent. However, what has plagued this app just the same as boggle is you win a level and your prize does not show up. Just had it happen yet again and it is really infuriating.
Ruined
by Bbbbbbzzzzz on 2019/09/14 01:11
Used to be fun. Pretty much ruined now due to LONG ads & a bizarre bug in which it plays a sound track that sounds like random street sounds...which keeps playing even after exiting the game!
Ads getting too long
by Quilterbw on 2019/09/13 23:29
Love the game but prscticslly have to exit whole app to get back to game.
I loved this game until recently...
by punkyluvr on 2019/09/13 01:17
This is my go to game for killing time. That being said typically I’m playing this game during downtime at work or while out running errands and I need my phone to be silent while playing. No matter what I do recently there is this weird sound that keeps playing it kind of sounds like a crowd cheering or something and because of this I don’t play the game as much.
Ads are getting ridiculous
by Itfarmer on 2019/09/13 00:35
Over the years there have been constant glitchy issues, though not deal breaking. The last app update now has 30 second ads and ads that continue to have audio in the background - even outside the app. If you think I’m waiting for 30 second ads between 2 minute rounds, you’re nuts.
Old version
by HUGEFANNNNADTRADTR on 2019/09/12 22:44
I much prefer the old version that keeps telling me I am on an out of date one. I don’t know what the pink tickets are for. Where is the explanations?
There is an ad that keeps playing in the background
by KrissE01 on 2019/09/12 20:28
While I am playing the game there is an ad for a grammar app that keeps playing in the background. I have done everything from deleting the app, to resetting my phone, to shutting down my phone for a few hours. It has not gone away or won’t go away. I can’t play in any quite area because the ad plays so loud in the background. You can’t see the ad while playing but you can totally hear it.
Great game but what’s with the glitch?
by AngiiMama on 2019/09/12 12:19
Love this game but it keeps running some kind of sound in the background on my phone whenever I play the game.

Killing my power with stupid long commercials
by MzDuncan on 2019/09/11 02:39
The game is great and ads are one thing but the 30 second and one minute commercials they play after every.single.game are killing my battery. Almost not worth playing anymore. You can’t exit the ad and return to the game. You must watch it. I can tell you that I will never buy one thing from any of the advertisers why are holding me hostage.
Long-time fan with a couple of complaints
by Gabi98769876 on 2018/07/19 14:51
I’ve seen Boggle morph over the years through several versions. It’s one of my favorite online pastimes. I’m enjoying the current format, with a couple of exceptions. In the group tournament program, there is often a waiting period before the game begins once the player slots are filled - a glitch which did not occur in the previous versions. The second issue, which has persisted throughout all the formats, is in the letter touch function. I have to make a conscious effort to touch the letters very lightly when I’m spelling out my words. Even then, I often have to repeat the spell-touching when the letters don’t register which costs me time. And I don’t have this issue when I’m texting. It’s rather frustrating during the heat of competition. Not that I’m losing sleep over it - but an improvement in this department would make for a smoother, fairer game. Otherwise, it meets the mark. Thanks for the free and easy access to tickets and coins. If I had to pay, I wouldn’t play!
Decent game
by tomdert on 2019/08/01 20:39
I have been playing for several years and find that the game has much to keep it I interesting including the tournaments and daily challenge and new bonuses. However it is riddled with bugs which is very frustrating. The daily challenges do not keep track of rankings despite continued promises. The bonuses are not working and the tournaments sometimes fault out for no good reason. Fix the bugs and it would be an awesome game. Don’t fix them and I will likely give up on the game. The new tournament format is terrible. Too few options and actually fewer rewards despite promises of increased rewards. Also daily challenge still does not track rankings. There has been improvement on faulting out on tournaments but still occurs. Update: Continue to be very disappointed with the tournament play options. Also again the daily challenge does not keep track of rankings the way the older version still does. Getting less and less to keep the interest. The bonus board is pretty much a waste with providing more coins than are really needed rather than give tickets and power plays which are much more useful. Seems developers are more interested in making money than keeping the game interesting.
It kills time, unless you want to play more than 30 mins or so at once
by cleomatic on 2017/11/04 01:51
Unlike meatworld Boggle, after a year of play, I've concluded that there's just not that much of a variety of words you ever get the opportunity to play in this app. It punishes you for playing "too much" and forces you to buy tickets or coins to keep on playing--or wait it out. I get that they make money off in-app purchases, but you also have to sit through a constant bombardment of ads and there's no option to pay to avoid the ads--some of which force you to click through to the app's download page to get back to playing Boggle. It also watches your web searches and serves up ads by mining your history, often forcing you to click to a web page you've already seen/gotten the info you need. Worst of all, there seems to be no shortage of creepy guys who try and use it as a nerdy dating method, "you're good with making words with your fingers, what else do those fingers do?" I hate it when random strangers get to chat with random strangers they're playing against because this seems to always be where it goes, but at least you can block players. If I didn't have friends who seem to enjoy this app so much, I would love to never see the app version again. And I adore Boggle in the meatworld, so...
Buggy software, Poor customer service
by skyron71 on 2019/05/21 21:20
I agree with other comments here. On the bright side, Pavel is a fun game to play and while you are playing it it’s enjoyable. That is, until one of the numerous bugs in the software pops up. Such as freezing your screen while you wait interminably for a game to get tallied, following which it often crashes and you lose the tokens you used to play. Others have noted the obnoxious requirements to keep buying power ups in order to be competitive. It would be great not to have any of those and just to play head to head, made the best person win. My most recent miserable experience was having an all-time high 36 game win streak suddenly and mysteriously erased by the software, even though I had not lost a game. When I wrote to customer service about it they repeatedly said they couldn’t do anything about it and claimed I had lost to another player. I asked them to send me the evidence, because there was none on my screen. They wouldn’t do it and obnoxiously kept signing their notes with “Have a great day!“ There are other games online that treat the customer more fairly, have better software and better customer service. Go for those. Leave this one alone.
Getting worse
by kathyp94 on 2019/04/08 13:50
I used to enjoy this game when it was word streak. I feel that it has gone down hill now that it has turned to Boggle. The ads are incredibly long in the new game, and for some reason, In the new game, the algorithm doesn’t match up players that have similar scores. I have no illusion. I know I’m great at this game, but I enjoy it, and know that word games are good for the brain. But without fail, the game matches me with player that have double and triple and sometimes quadruple my average score. To Their scores are partly because they’re better (I get that) but also because they are clearly using lots of power ups. Many of these scores are completely unrealistic...even for amazing players. I wish they would match up people that want to use a similar amount of “cheats” or none at all. Now onto the power ups. In Word Streak, I also feel like they are charging a lot more (imaginary coins, which build up VERY slowly, or you can buy with REAL money) to play, and use a single power up (which used to be free). They are clearly pushing players to the point that they NEED to actually purchase coins to play this game with any measure of success. Disappointed that they took a good game and ruining it.
Very enjoyable game!
by NKarigaca on 2017/12/04 21:42
1st review below. 2: One problem: when I finish a third rounds and want a rematch, the game keeps showing up with "done" rather than "play". I have to go back to a completed game on the top line to play. It's annoying. Otherwise, I still love the game. The game has really become a significant part of my life, one of the ways I unwind, keep my brain active, engage with words, which I love, and interact daily with some family members. This version has continued improvements other versions have made. A few minor problems remain, but nothing frustrating except for the fact that the words in the "chat" are almost too small to read if one uses an iPad mini, as I do. (COULD THE FONT BE MADE LARGER, PLEASE?) Other minor problems: 1. Sometimes when I tap on a game someone sent me, I get a white screen (maybe for chatting) instead of the game itself. When this happens, I try a few more times, and I always get the game eventually. 2. Occasionally, when I finish with a game and try to start another, the lower right box keep saying "done" instead of "play". 3. Sometimes when scores are over 100, the score is just given as 1.. instead of the full number. 4. Before I got to my number 2 point, the words I was typing went underneath the keyboard, so I can't see what I'm typing unless I stop and pull up the screen, which won't stay up unless my finger is holding it up. This has always happened when I've tried to comment.
Fun with Flaws
by BillHorvath on 2018/08/13 05:21
The game itself plays well; most of the problems are in the infrastructure that surrounds it. The delay waiting to see scores is annoying: rather than just showing your score and your opponent’s, you have to wait while the score display spins through every number between 0 and your respective scores. Every time that happens is five seconds of your life you’ll never get back. What’s infinitely worse is the messaging/chat system. It’s broken down by game (rather than by opponent), so if you have more than one game going against one opponent, you can have multiple conversations going as well, meaning you have to flip back and forth between games and check chat in each one to remember what you’ve said. Even better, no chat history is preserved across games; each game is a fresh slate. That’s great if you want to conceal evidence, but not so helpful if you’re trying to remember what you said to someone last week. WWF’s messaging solution is far superior.
Pay to win piece of crap
by TickleMeCthulhu on 2018/04/22 13:00
I love the core game of Boggle, but I cannot stand the implementation of pay to win. You can never tell what power ups your online opponent is using, so you’re strongly encouraged to use your own. Oh, they give you one for free, but the rest require tokens which, to be fair, you *can* earn without spending a dime, but by now, I’m sure you know how this works. If you play a lot, you’ll run out of those tokens fast, so if you want to keep playing - and you want to keep up with your competition with power ups- you’ll need to throw some cash in to buy more tokens. It’s terrible. How can one hope to beat an otherwise evenly matched player who has a full extra minute of time in their game? I wish there was a league or something where you could play without any power ups. Yeah, your scores won’t top the power-upped leaderboards, but at least you’d know that you were playing on an even field. I don’t know- maybe there should be a way to see what power ups your opponent was using. By doing this, the developer could allow the player to know they’re playing a fair match, and still be just as greedy by strongly encouraging us to use/buy those stupid power ups.
Fun but lots of bugs that gets annoying
by Sogtgvhjvhdsv on 2018/09/08 11:28
I just upgraded to this version from Word Streak. I love playing the tournaments but ever since I started using this version for tournaments it always freezes my entry where it kept showing me it was still preparing but other players were already playing and I would still be on the entry screen. This happened multiple times until I would just end up quitting and lose my entry tickets. And sometimes it would just stay on the screen forever. Another quirk is after the game ends I used to be able to swipe back to the previous rounds to see what everyone scored but in this version it automatically jumps to the leaderboard (which I don’t care for) and goes back to main menu. Gets annoying. Other than that I do like the new games and challenges it has over Word Streak. But now when I play tournaments I go back to the old version. Update: ok so I’ve just completed a tournament and found that it did not update my power-ups. Do you know how many tournament games I had to play to finally reach completion to earn power-ups? Wasted my time, very aggravating. Would give negative 10 stars if I could. Good bye app!
Nothing but horrible ads
by cdzuff on 2018/07/31 04:01
I like Boggle. Not this Boggle. Boggle won’t teach much by way of vocabulary unless you grunt a lot. Playing with friends sitting around the breakfast nook is glorious. Having to sit through a plethora of mind-numbing, pathetic ads covering apps that ads designed by and for cretins is deplorable. Zynga is a wretched company for forcing its customers to witness such a disgusting show of total maniacal greed. The technical issues have been a trademark of Zynga. I give the game a few stars because I have enjoyed Boggle itself for decades. My recommendation is to look for the same game by a reputable developer. Update: as the game keeps bugging me to review the program; it is still very buggy with iOS 11.4.1. The settings don’t always work and the thing freezes on my iPad. I have to delete it and re-install about once a week. Nothing changes. Nothing is fixed. There are pointless banners with "quests" meant, one should think, to entice the player to spend money to buy what amounts to dispensation to cheat for those morally challenged individuals. Anyway, everything’s the same as it always is in Zyngaland.
Addictive, but can be costly
by Abcees on 2018/04/03 00:02
After long resistance I finally switched from Scramble with Friends to Boggle. The game works well, it’s great fun, and I have the ad-free version, but there are still a few bugs -for example, in the daily challenge, I can no longer see how my score compares to other folks I play against. Also, people I have never played against show up as ‘friends,’ and I can’t delete people I no longer compete with. The game now pushes you to play the live challenge by giving significant numbers of tournament entry tickets and just a few coins for regular games (in addition to to the regular coin refill. If you want to win a tournament, you really to buy have power-ups, and they’re not cheap. Also, I’d like to see a more equitable challenge matching system. Pitting low level players against people 40 or 50 levels ahead again pushes players to buy, buy, buy more power ups just for a shot at making it past the first level of the game.
Horrible glitches/Can only keep playing if you spend $$$$
by Cnp8942 on 2018/04/29 15:59
Where do I even begin? I never leave reviews but this game has made me so frustrated. I love word games and am an avid Words With Friends player so I thought I’d try out Boggle. The obvious glitches during tournaments and the short ads during matches don’t even bother me much. What does bother me is that I have beaten several levels of the Solo Challenge and have not received any tickets for it and it’s also obvious that the only way to win during tournaments is to buy a ton of power ups with real money. No, I don’t think I’m the greatest player ever, but there’s no way that 65 year olds are on there doubling my word count/score without power ups. 5 power ups per game?! Come on. You can even see when they use 2/3 minutes worth of freezes. What is the point of even trying to play if you aren’t willing to spend money on the game every single day? I get that in app purchases are common, but this is ridiculous. You also get no rewards for playing regular matches, don’t why would I keep playing? The developers of the game really need to take a look at how absurd the structure of this game is.
Favorite Game
by FlyerChick on 2018/11/10 15:00
This is my favorite game. I love word searches and this one keeps me engaged. You can play as much or as little as you like. I play daily and feel like I am constantly improving. There are some bugs but not enough to turn me off and they seem to be fixed quickly. Some feedback for the developers, I wish there were more opportunities to earn tickets, coins and power ups and it would be nice to pick your prize. I love the daily challenges but I miss the ones with a riddle answer or certain words to look for. The daily challenges are a lot of fun but I wish the payoff was a bit better. Also, I hate the difficult letter search. You could play all day and not get any puzzles with those letters. I play daily but there is no way I can play that much. I guess the purpose is to get you to spend all your tickets and make an in app purchase but I can’t spend that much time playing. Great game though and I can see that many people play daily.
Great Game! Some Limitations
by SkepticUsh on 2018/03/25 01:10
Boggle is a fantastic game with some serious upgrades over the years that make the game way more challenging than in past times. It’s totally worth the download. However it lacks certain thing that limit the game and shift it all together into a brand new stand alone game. Power ups are great fun. But it would be swell to join matches that only match players who don’t want power ups. To Harken back to the original game for which I am endlessly a fan of. The power ups do tilt the game in the direction of the person with the most which is fine but the coins to purchase the power ups have to be earned which places a deficit in the game some what. Easily avoidable by doing the bare minimum for a week or two should put one ahead to battle it out in power ups. Lastly for me, the biggest issue by far was not being able to chat to those I am playing. I understand there is a chat feature but over the last month (since I downloaded this game) I am have been unable to talk with those I play. Which is a bummer. Because I feel like I’m missing out on making friends and learning from other players. So developers (I’m not above thinking I’ve not done something wrong in trying to chat so please lend a hand if you can.) I am able to write chats but completely unable to see what others write to be. Can we fix this wonderful bros and lady bros? I’m trying to make friends here. Much love!
Good Games but it Needs to Fix Some Problems
by Sadie47 on 2019/08/06 17:33
I like Boggle. The games are fun and I think it’s pretty good brain exercise. However, the game has some flaws that need a fix. I don’t understand their timing for some major play. Sometimes the game is available at 3:00 am and sometimes it is available mid morning and sometimes it takes until afternoon. But some of the parts that are needed to fulfill the game card becomes available long beforehand. That forces the player to play in the middle of the night to finish the card to score the points needed. Then there’s the games that require players from a player list. The majority of those people don’t finish their games and they just sit forever in a list that prevents you from fulfilling the requirements for the game. It’s ridiculous to have to wait for players who won’t finish their game. Clean up the list or give the player a way to finish the games without players who don’t or won’t play. Sometimes the game sticks and the player can’t finish the game. Sometimes the points aren’t awarded. When the game freezes up you lose your “payment (tickets or coins) and it usually freezes before the beginning of the final game in the series. That’s frustrating! If you can deal with the problems and the frustrations, then by all means play the games. The games are fun and challenging. I just wish the creators would fix the problems.
Bogle Review
by Rjpomerene on 2018/06/30 21:32
I play every day multiple times and enjoy pushing myself to think and move quickly. I like that I can review the words I could have played at the end of each game. Bogle is fun. The only improvement is to curb advertisers who bypass sound. I keep sounds off because I often play at odd times when I can’t sleep. These “rude” advertisers blare sound and wakes my husband. What if you try to play bedside at a hospital waking a sleeping family member or roommate in a hospital or nursing home. I fully understand you need advertisers to support the games which I enjoy but these few who design and program to override the off sound for players actually makes me angry. Some people have a legitimate reason for turning off the sound. I love the cute Pampers advertisement. I can enjoy it and smile every time I see it without the sound. Otherwise I love playing Boggle, it keeps me sharp, it keeps me social. Five Stars.
Boggle
by Kathy McCune on 2018/04/19 04:26
I used to enjoy playing some of the players who were similar in ability over and over again. That seems to be impossible because the game keeps throwing you new players who quickly fill up your allotment of contenders, therefore, you’re continually playing new players. Don’t forget we are humans and sometimes we form weird little “relationships” based on words. This only happens when you look forward to playing certain challengers because you know their game playing strategy. Oftentimes the game won’t let you challenge because there are too many open games. So boohoo. Can you go back to the way it was? Kathy M. I must also comment on the greed or whatever drives you to limit the number of tokens so drastically. The tokens are also hard to buy. I wouldn’t mind buying a few tokens but my iPad is nor recognizing my fingerprint and there is no option for a password login.
Fun, but constantly glitchy
by Melbell86 on 2018/03/18 02:14
I love playing Boggle. You do run out of coins, but I just play the tournament games while I wait on coins to refill. As long as you are a decent player then you should win enough tickets to play in tournaments without having to wait. THE DOWNSIDE... the game is soooooo glitchy. The back button in the top left hand side, rarely works or takes a long time to respond. I have to close out of the app just to go back. Secondly, the tournament rounds will frequently freeze up and says that there was an error sending your move. Which leads to you losing the round. I have also had situations where the word point totals weren’t added correctly. Usually that is against the fake game players (not actual people). Sometimes the tournament games won’t load at all. I’ve sat for 5 to 10 minutes just waiting on a game to start and finally figured out it was frozen and had to close out of the app. As you can see, many glitches which is unfortunate because I love the game.
I like not seeing who is using what
by JulieAJarvisBarker on 2017/10/14 11:31
I am seeing many reviews where players are wanting to know what power ups their opponents are using. I like not knowing. If I get beat, I don’t care how I got beat, it makes me feel more competitive. I like seeing what worlds were found that I missed. I don’t care how my opponent found them, I just like learning the new words, then using them later. It’s actually made me a better player. Until I learned all of the possibilities with words, I sucked at this game. I was trying to find as many small words as possible. Now, I start each game scanning the layout and specifically looking for letters that make words longer and therefore worth more points. In short, I like it. I’m not going to pay for power ups, but if someone who I’m playing against is, I suppose they rightfully won the game; they actually spent their money to do so. I’m okay with that.
Fun but glitchy
by sheryy77 on 2018/09/09 04:51
I love Boggle! It’s such a fun game! I’m bugged with the glitches though. It takes quite a while to load as opposed to other games that are much more complex. Nearly every time I play the daily challenge it sends me right back to the challenge after I’ve finished it and gone back to the main menu! What a pain. A few times my stats were all screwed up and wrong and at least twice it somehow gave my words and score to my opponent and gave me a zero! Often times I try to start a game but a glitch won’t allow it to start. Many times recently the game just closes for no apparent reason and I have to open it back up and wait for it to load again! Ugh! Now there’s the weekly challenge that I don’t care a lick about. I’m sure this adds to the long load time. With so many glitches I don’t think you should add more stuff. The apps capabilities already seem strained. The chat also takes quite some time to load. When the game works right it’s a lot of fun.
Change The Decline FAQ
by dncinv on 2018/08/12 11:52
I finally deleted this game. I haven’t played as long as most players and am only okay. I hate that the daily challenge players can be 10xs as good as you. It indicates that you don’t suffer a loss for declining a match but that is just a lie. It constantly shows as “other player won”. When I reopen it, it is a game in which I have 0 points and declined. Often it says I quit when I did not. I may have quit A Game, once but 2 or 3 of 10 games will have one of the 2 glitches. Last the back button and touch sensitivity is terrible. After writing tech about the first two glitches many times and their replies being that you can’t decline after the other person played. What? If someone invites me to play then of course they played. I don’t know their score and decline because their average is a Zillion Times better. That was the last straw for me. Too bad I loved the game and since I have been very sick it has kept me occupied but not worth the bother if I can’t depend on support to comply to your rules.

...then all this silly crap got added to give players more variations. I understand that. I don’t like it. Since the introduction of the add-ins, loading time is infernally long. One of the most annoying aspects of those additions is the daily prize. The grid shows the daily prize, which gets clicked. That pops-up a “mystery box” (which is no mystery since we’ve already seen it) which has to be tapped to open; & finally a collect button appears. It’s just three taps, two of which are completely redundant and therefore unnecessary. It’d be nice to have a “Boggle Lite” so players like me who don’t care for the extras can just play the game we enjoy. (New: I did finally note the small settings button which allows players to opt out of so-called smart matches (they are not: 1 in 10 reflects my skill level) and other potential matches. It was nice to find, but changing that option did not improve the game-load time significantly. Since that’s not going to happen, I’ll continue to play, but the rating stands.
Response to Cleomatic

First of all the app is a wonderful game and a nice learning tool. You can spell big words if you know big words. With the puzzle being so small it is difficult if you have a limited vocabulary (like Cleo who rated it 2 stars and wined about it). Nobody uses it as a dating sight unless you are responding back or make yourself noticeable in that light. There are rude people that get their feelings hurt because you outwitted them. Some like to use the blame of buying words. It’s part of a strategy, sometimes using words can inspire your mind (or jump start your thinking). When folks get curt or rude I just say “have a pleasurable day. There is not a shortage of players. You can play free games all day by signing up for tournaments etc. The game is good dope and lots of fun. If you are looking for a serious challenge, come knock on my door and I’ll give you what you’re asking for. Have a great day everyone.
Great game / crappy developers
by pitmlp on 2019/03/11 01:24
I only play 2 online games - this is still one of those 2. Love the game. Lots of things need to improve but still it is great. However, this app gets 1 star because it is the single worst team of developers (might only be one the way it seems) I have seen with any app or software product I have ever used. Problems have gone on since the change to boggle. If I owned this app I would fire everyone there and replace them with people who are. Terrible. Update: more confounding decisions made by this company - they create stats which get people excited and playing more games than they otherwise would and then they reverse all value created by changing the time for the game so u have half the time - thereby making past stats which have been going on for years, completely useless. Almost like 6 year old kids are running the app. Completely moronic. I literally stopped playing when they did this and will check once a month to see if they change it back. No app I have ever used has been so poorly maintained.
Fun game to play only with your actual friends
by Hgsagogsr on 2018/08/10 21:10
I give this only 3 stars because it is fun but you never know if the person you are playing in a random match is using a million power ups. I play my husband and we use only the freebie. I know there are “professional” players (whatever the H*** that means) who claim that their fingers move faster than the speed of light and don’t use power ups but if you get one of them in a random match you will forever have your daily challenge compared to them as though they are your friend - random matches are NOT friends and I’m sick of being compared to them. So one star off for that idiocy and one star off for not telling the players how many power ups their competitor is using. So 3 stars. With the new “quests” that have a pop up on the top of your games while the totals are adding up, I almost took off another star. That is so completely stupid and I’m sick of getting reminders to claim my quest points.
Used to be Good
by Mattymateo2241 on 2019/03/26 03:37
Played this game daily for years when it was Word Streak and something before that. Loved it and probably played it more than any phone app game. I always wondered how Zynga got away with calling it something other than the Boggle I grew up playing in the real world in the cube box with the clear lid where you shook it by hand and used a little old sand filled hourglass timer. Thought everything would be fine when it changed to Boggle. I was forced to update from Word Streak after avoiding it as long as possible because the game play is just all around inferior. I can’t make nearly as many words. I kept thinking maybe I’d get used to it, but I’m bout to just quit playing. I would give the older Word Streak game 4 1/2 stars. I gave this current version of Boggle 3 stars, but that’s just because I didn’t want to totally trash a game I have loved for years. Like I said, I think I’m just going to quit playing this new version bc it’s so inferior.
Power ups are lame
by GRGarber on 2019/01/21 20:43
TL/DR: either add a no power ups area or show us what power ups the other side used. Preferably you do both. If you’ve read any reviews, you’ll notice a common theme: it’s annoying to have to pay for power ups to compete with people who clearly use the “mega-freeze” and “mega-inspiration” on about every turn. The app developers want to make money, and I won’t begrudge them for that, but at least tell us what the other person used so that we can see if we were outcompeted or they just used a ton of extra power ups. OR just add an area where you can’t use power ups so that you know you’re on the same footing. I can almost see the wheels spinning in the owners’ minds: “But, if we make a no power ups area, then people would gravitate there and we would lose revenue.” Well, you might be right short term, but true Boggle fans are going to jet if they haven’t already since it’s frustrating to lose to someone and not know whether it was their skill or power ups doing the work.
Small format
by Lillboat on 2019/03/27 13:28
I have been playing this game for a few years now. I really enjoy it. There are a few things that are not working well right now. 1. About 90% of the time, my score is the only one on the leaderboard. Occasionally, the others players show up, but not often. In other words, I’m mostly playing against myself. Why is that? 2. After a game is finished, I have to wait about 30 seconds before I can restart a game with that player. Otherwise it says “done” and I have to go to the finished games to restart that game. Irritating. 3. I have always had a problem with not being able to play on a “level” playing field. I only use my free power ups, except when I know someone continuously uses more. It is a losing battle to out “power up” another player. Have you considered another option? I would like to know that my skill was what won or lost a game; not by how many power ups someone is willing to use just to win. 4. I rarely play in the tournaments, so those pink tickets are like a punishment to me. I probably have thousands saved that will just keep accumulating. You have fixed many of the previous glitches. I am grateful for that! It is a great game. These are just some of my personal issues. Thank you. Ann Lilly
Good, but needs improvement
by Bunigrl33 on 2018/08/20 16:06
Many times, while playing my daily match game, the post-game ad will freeze. I must leave the app to get the ad to play, but when I do so, I lose the tokens I was supposed to earn for that game (I think this has been fixed now). I agree with those who commented that it would be more fair to see what power-ups your opponent used during a round. It seems like the same letter combinations show up game after game. Also, I don’t know if this game is English only, or if it’s available in other languages, but I noticed a lot of non-English words are accepted as valid. I’ve looked up the definitions of unfamiliar words to find out they’re Greek, Hebrew, Scottish, or Old-English, not in common usage anymore. Then, when I play real Boggle with my friends in person, I have to remember these aren’t real English words and I can’t use them outside of this app.
Issues with loading
by rekoorbls on 2019/08/11 20:52
I love, love, love this game but recently seem to have lots of issues with loading the screens to play. Many times the screen locks up on me and I end up just quitting and going to play another of my games. It would be wonderful if you could resolve these issues and make the game work better (like it used to - maybe it’s getting to be too popular?? Continued issues with the games.....I love this game but the issues are getting worse and worse. Game continues to freeze up on me constantly - so much that I have well over 500 tokens accumulated because I can only play a couple games before it freezes on me. Also, how do you get the freeze tokens?? Those are the ones I prefer, but seldom seem to get them as awards. This is a great game but it is very frustrating to deal with the freeze-ups!
What Happened??? Give Me My Stuff Back!
by PolarCannon on 2019/09/23 12:34
I’ve been playing this game for years under all of its names. Never had issues. The sound randomly disappears sometimes, so I restart my device and that fixes it. (I need the “guy’s” encouragement as I play.) Except for today. When I opened the app after restarting, I was prompted to log back into Facebook, which I did. (And would do 2 more times because I couldn’t believe my eyes.) That’s when I noticed ALL of my coins (18), tickets (3109), and status (level 32) were GONE! GONE! GONE! In addition, all the games I was playing, along with recently finished games, were gone as well. The only thing that didn’t disappear were my super power-ups. I searched for help, but nothing applies, and there is no way to contact these people. (They really need to stop calling it “contact us” because, you know...you can’t.) I am irate. I faithfully sat through the torturous ads, and checked-in every day for coins and tickets all to basically get a giant middle finger from Zenga. Back at ya, guys! Right back at you.
Great game, but you MUST MAKE THE FONT BIGGER again!
by rockinwiththedrummer on 2018/07/22 07:20
I've been playing all the versions of this game for over 7 years. It's a fun, well-run game, though I prefer the previous, simpler versions. I'm annoyed by the constant game requests by random people EVERY time I get on to play with my friends. A new game every once in a while is ok, but I get way more game requests than I could ever play. Chat has been much improved in consistency over the years. This latest update is a deal breaker, though! The font is way too small on everything...and to no point as blank space is left all around the game and chat screens. I can't even read what I just typed to a friend in chat, the font is so small. I'm using an iPhone X, so no excuses for screen size. The game play was just impossible due to the tiny squares. Please fix this ASAP or you're going to lose a lot of players! If not for this new update, I'd rate this game a 4+ because it's very fun.
Uninformative tournament stats
by Wubbee on 2019/08/24 04:26
The game is okay for the boggle word enthusiast. Winning (or losing) doesn’t necessarily tell you how good you are at finding words, though. You don’t know what “power ups” your opponent is using, or how many (they can technically use up to 5 per round). Meanwhile, tournament players don’t seem to be well matched - but this is possibly because players have meaningless stats. They are: games won, 1st place wins, and total tickets won. These stats are kind of useless without knowing how many TOTAL games have been played. Player won 500 games. That’s great. But was it 500 of 500 games played? Or 500 of 100,000 games played? Big difference. Also, total tickets won is kind of redundant. You can sort of figure it out by knowing the first two stats (games won, 1st place wins). But the other thing is, who cares about the tickets. More interesting is their win percentage, which is unavailable.
Too many issues
by ryanlikesphotography. on 2019/04/28 14:08
I love Boggle, have been playing since I was a kid. This is actually a great version with many fun features but little things ruin game play. My biggest problem is the incredibly annoying sound effects. Even when they’re off the app cuts off all other sound from the device and you can’t even listen to your own music and I end up playing in silence. Not fun. Power-ups are a big problem too. Real Boggle is a great mind exercise. I like to play without them as they take away from the actual skill of the game. Theyre trying to make money on them and they make game play about power-ups rather than actual ability. They also give the user such an incredible advantage it makes it not fun to get crushed constantly by people using the power-ups. At least give the option to pair up with people not using power-ups. For the record, “Spin” is not a power-up, it’s part of the game, should be a given. Hope Zynga makes it better, I’ll be looking for a better version in the meantime.
Too many technical issues
by aamari0615 on 2017/12/07 02:54
I️ have not been able to play in any of the daily tournaments for over a week. I️t won’t take my coins to play or if I️t does and I️ play then the screen just comes up stating “0 place of 0 players” and nothing happens. On the main screen I️t just says “waiting for results” but again nothing happens. I️ have had to uninstall and reinstall 6x. I️ wrote to support and even attached a screenshot of the screen but no reply! I️t was my favorite game but the support is terrible. Time to uninstall for good I️ think. Update: support did get back to me and told me to do exactly what the section of the game says to do. I did it all but now I can’t participate in daily tournaments at it. When I hit enter nothing happens! Is anyone else having trouble playing in daily tournaments???
Reasonably entertaining
by Rob Bar on 2018/02/04 06:49
I enjoy Boggle, so this is a fun way to pass time. The problem is that frequently I challenge a person to a match and they don’t respond, so I’m stuck with a game that isn’t being played. They only let you have a certain number of games open at one time, therefore people not playing can limit your ability to play other players. Of course you can resign from the game, but I’d rather play than not play, plus sometimes I’ve used tokens to initiate that match and would rather not waste them while I have a choice. Also the chat feature is linked to the match you’re playing with a person, which means it closes not long after the match is completed. To keep talking to the person one of you needs to open another match, not a serious problem, but you lose your chat history.
Glitch or intentional change??
by bmbobblehead on 2019/06/05 11:22
What happened to the first power-up being FREE? I've been playing this game for 8 years and the first power-up had always been FREE, the 2nd one cost 1 token and the 3rd one cost 3 tokens. But now that's been flipped and the first one costs 1 token, the 2nd one costs 3 tokens and then comes the FREE power-up. Is this a glitch? Or is this an intentional, unhappy change? Other than that I love playing this game, as each round is just 2 minutes of play. I feel like I'm getting some brain simulation benefit. I used to get annoyed at some of the "words" that are allowed - especially those that are foreign/middle Eastern, that are not known words. But now I'm used to it. I have a couple of people from different places in the country/world that have played this game with me for years. It's been fun!
Love this game!!! Don't have to spend money to play!!!😍
by J.R.G.R.H. on 2017/11/27 10:50
I'm a big puzzle gamer, and this one is one of my favorites. Word games keep your brain sharp, but this game works your brain out in many different ways. I'm looking forward to where they take this game, but I'm also very happy with the way it is now. One last thing....I love that they do not force you to spend money on this game in order to play it. The options are there, of course, but they have a way to win power-ups without spending money at all. It is one of the reasons why I chose this game above all of the others. It's a fair way of not cutting out potential players on a budget. I love that, and will always stay loyal to this game for that reason above any others. Way to go, Boggel Creators!!! Keep up the great work!!!
Addictive game, but with glitches
by BinnieMae on 2018/07/17 17:03
I love playing, perhaps too much. The past few days there have been glitches that make it impossible to get out of a challenge, i.e., half price Tuesday and one on one Wednesday. It's the same board over and over and at the end it says there are 0 players and won't "release" me. I've contacted support and have done everything they said, including uninstalling and reinstalling the app several times. The glitch is on their end and they aren't fixing it. I especially enjoy one on one Wednesday because it's fast. You don't gain any ground because of the cost of tickets, but you get back enough to keep going. ***Update*** Almost two months later and they haven’t fixed the problem with the lightning rounds/daily games. Each support person tells me to do exactly what the last support person tells me. Nothing fixes it. The problem is on their end and they won’t fix it. Because of that, I’m reducing the stars to 1. But Zynga support won’t care.
Game is fun...Limiting fun but enough
by AnneR• on 2019/03/16 13:27
Love this app adaptation of the game Boggle. Lots and lots of variety versions so anyone can find a style they like. I miss the “learning” aspect that a Boggle App once had in which you could view all possible word finds and even get definitions after you played the board. Good vocabulary booster when you can actually see all possibilities. I’m a purist so straight head-to-head Boggle is my fav. Unfortunately you have to use the quirky power ups to compete enough to earn coins to play multiple games. Wish app had a ticket to coin exchange so I can cash in easier-to-accumulate tickets for coins. Regardless of the limiting play factor it’s worth exercising your brain to play. Plus, I guess it’s a good way to limit your screen time and actually put device down to interact in real world!
Kills time but mean
by Flashy Ramone on 2019/06/01 18:23
I’m only going to focus on a specific complaint I have about this app: the daily goals. If I’m playing someone who is nowhere close to my level, I prefer to go easy on them. I don’t get off on blowing them away, I don’t want to turn them off playing with me, and I don’t want to waste power ups just so I can reach 700 points or 60 words or whatever. The daily challenges or goals or whatever make it so that I often have to choose between earning tickets or not embarrassing my opponent. The app also screws with you by making you try to find 15 words with certain letters in them, then gives you board after board without ANY of those letters!! You can slightly increase your chances of seeing those letters by using more power ups, but the game is stingy with free tickets. What a surprise-want to really play? Spend real money. (NO.)
Fun game
by Bettster on 2018/03/12 13:00
I enjoy playing this game both in the head to head matches and the tournaments. I wish there were more options for independent play, other than the daily challenge. It would also be great if we could choose longer times to play independently. I love how you can see the list of potential words, as well as the words of yourself and your opponents, after a head to head round is completed; is there a way to do that after the daily challenge? Sometimes the opponents in both the head to head or the tournaments are way outmatched, it gets discouraging because you know before the round even starts that you’ve lost that coin or ticket. The ads get to be a bit much at times but overall I love this game enough that I play it daily and throw money at it.
Several bugs short of 5 stars
by Fix-Scramble on 2018/05/26 02:35
I like the app, the games and different challenges. However, if they fail to update the app often, it will start to lag, pause and crash. When the app does crash, it’s usually after starting a game, which then takes your tokens with it. One other thing I don’t like is the games are often repeated; I’ll start a game and notice that I’ve played the exact tiles several times before. A lot of complaints, but I gave it 4 stars because of the ease of use; open the game and play an opponent. Also the number of members, I have never had to wait to start a game. Also the different options and challenges make it so I don’t get bored of normal player vs player gameplay.
Great game but....
by DeeMackadoo on 2019/05/01 13:05
I would love the new daily quests but I think they should keep them a little less challenging. I’m sure they make them that way to entice you to keep spending in order to complete them but come on!!! If I have to find 70 words a game 4 times or use Vision 6 times...I shut it down. It would be nice to earn power ups instead of a few tickets every time. I like that you can watch ads in the store to earn stuff but those rewards are horrible being only one or two coins or tickets per ad. I’ve only gotten a power up once by watching the ads. Seems Zynga is getting greedy to force you to spend money while receiving a fortune off the ads as well. I do like the customer service response when there are game glitches.
Not as good as Word Streak
by Stelynquin on 2018/02/24 19:55
The main thing I don’t like about this app is that under the heading “your turn”, it gives them ALL, starting from the oldest, even those from at least a year ago, so you have to side-scroll through a very long list until you finally come to the ones you are currently playing. and, I always have played all of my turns in the past, so I have no idea why there are so many games listed under “my turn.” So, in the past few days, I have taken my turn in several of these older games, but they continue to be listed under “my turn.” And when I tapped on them again, it gave the same grid as the first time Also, Boggle with Friends is slower to load than Word Streak, plus I don’t like the colors, grid, or layout of it. I will stick with Word Streak as long as possible.
Repetitive and Spelling Errors
by aRross12 on 2017/12/10 10:02
This is the second time I’ve played a Daily Challenge Puzzle, that some of the words they list for you to find for extra points, isn’t even able to be spelled. One was “Cotton” but there was only one T, and today’s it lists “Candy” with no Y. Is this intentional or are the people putting these lists together too busy putting nonsense words in the puzzles that they forget the main theme of daily? It seems like it’s a repeating list of about 60 words, and the rest are acronyms, abbreviations, or some other word I’ve never heard of, then looked up, and still found to be utterly ridiculous. I loved this game for the first week, and am becoming more and more bored and irritated by it. I find I spend most of my two minutes throwing random letters together to find some crazy non-English word. Get it together.
Love the game, sick of the bugs
by Danni Loves Puzzles on 2018/05/17 06:49
I love the game. It is fun and somewhat challenging. The problem is that the game is buggy and tech support has not fixed the problem. When I reported the issue (have reported several times) they send me a canned response to uninstall then reinstall the game, with no real fix. I read some other reviews and it seems I am not the only person having issues. I will keep playing because it passes the time. If I had issues with an app at my place of employment and our tech support couldn’t resolve the problems they would be replaced. Come on guys, it cannot be that difficult - it has been months without a resolution. (Issue is that the leaderboard for the daily challenge doesn’t populate, I only see my own results)
Mostly good
by jbuss7 on 2017/11/12 07:25
As someone who played boggle with my family as a child, I was excited to find it as an app. Overall the game is good but I do have a few things I would enjoy seeing. First off I know some people want to know what power ups other people have used and honestly I’d be okay either way but I would also like is if it would let me know what power ups I used in the previous round just to remember if I needed them or not. Then again that’s part of the game and not a big deal. My main concern as of late however, is that sometimes when an ad comes on, even when my device is on mute, the ad plays super loud. It’s frustrating so I’d love if someone could figure that one out haha
Doesn’t credit you all your words
by Unhappy former listener 😡 on 2018/02/05 19:02
I’ve been playing this app for years. I love the game of Boggle, always played it in my family around the table. But over the past few months I’ve been repeatedly noticing that words I’ve played in game are being left out in my summary, and not just a couple, most I’ve seen is 29 words valued at 761 points when added up. That’s the difference between a score of 1667 in a round compared to 2424 that it should have been!! I feel really cheated here. Customer service is impossible to get in contact with, and no resolution when I do. Feel like this game is going down the crapper. I’ve had many issues with words with friends and Crosswords with friends too. Zynga needs to make themselves available for “actual” customer service and stop being evasive, I’m not sure I’ll be playing with crap like this going on. 😡😡

Crashes after opening
by Foodie Literature on 2019/10/19 14:26
Suddenly I cannot use the app. It crashes right after opening. It’s unclear why as I haven’t changed anything on my phone. This would be better as a 5x5 grid - very repetitive word options.
Good game / long ads
by LareyMcD on 2019/10/17 03:53
I enjoy the game but waiting 30 seconds after every move while the ad rolls on and on is disruptive.
Stop the ads!
by PookieMiller on 2019/10/16 05:09
Make the ads stop! Is there a version of this without ads? I am so sick of them.
Great game but crashes
by Gogumagirl on 2019/10/15 20:32
This game is super fun and addicting to play, but it crashes quite often. I’ve started a tournament and spent tickets for extra boosts just for the game to crash and for me to lose all my tickets spent without getting them back to my account. It’s frustrating when you only have a couple of tickets and lose them without even getting a chance to play. I’ve also had times where I would get the daily rewards but the mega bonus reward would somehow get skipped. Seems weird/fishy.
Great fun if you can put up with continual bugs
by Cablecutter! on 2019/10/15 13:52
Zynga why is Boggle With Friends so consistently and maddeningly full of unresolved bugs ? If I didn’t enjoy playing so much I would delete . This has been going on for years and years . Fix the bugs ... they are maddening !
Fix the daily event already!!!

Like the game but please make it available without ads!!!
I don’t often make purchases
by Mrs TScar on 2019/10/13 22:52
I don’t often make purchases and found it ok to play w/o purchases. I held my own until I purchased coins and power ups. I figured Since I was enjoying myself. Huge regrets. Now my opponents seem to beat me often by just a few points. I am not gaining any ground point wise. And I feel like I am playing a computer not a another person. Also, after clearing all the chest daily collections I get to the big prize and it just resets to another board no reward. Lastly, I had a prize to collect and it showed error occurred. None of this happened before the purchase. It’s a zonk.
Too many ads
by None none none none none no on 2019/10/13 04:31
I love Boggle, but the ads are getting ridiculous. There are too many, they are too long, you can’t X out of them, and some of them are borderline offensive.
Preferred Scramble
by Oshiama on 2019/10/13 02:49
I much preferred Scramble before they combined into Boggle. I find the puzzles not as much fun. I enjoy finding lots of words and these puzzles offer less for the casual player. The tournaments are great for the serious people but average players don’t have much chance. Daily challenges are also difficult for average players
Unable to receive free rewards. And video rewards
by Birdy45678910 on 2019/10/11 17:39
Constantly have to close the app to get it to update and show matches. Constantly have to update to update ticket amounts. Had this game before years ago and had paid for a ad free version. Now I don’t have it. And it has too many ads should have a ad free version Have not been able to get my video rewards for days.
Love it, but....
by Hemy & Leo on 2019/10/10 12:14
Great game. Competitive. Fun rewards. But waaaaaaay to many ads between rounds, some of which are 30 seconds long. I’d happily pay for the app and rate it 5 stars if the ads could be turned off.
Ads
by SalGal 26 on 2019/10/10 11:46
Ads are too long!!! Need a version that you can pay for and eliminate the ads.
Restart your streak at 0 even when you didn’t lose
by developer is a cheat on 2019/10/09 22:21
The company running this app will restart your win streak randomly. I’ve had it restart three separate times, right as I get close to my record, and I don’t lose, but it sets my streak at 0. When I ask customer support for help, they tell me I’ve had lots of losses-even thought I’ve taken a picture after every win. Also, once you win too many tickets it will make it impossible for you to play the daily events (like Lightening Round Monday) because they want you to buy tickets. It will stay stuck on the same board and even when you delete and reset you get a new board (which is the exact same board) and that will freeze. This eliminating any possibility of winning more tickets. In addition, the android version allows you to see what your opponent is playing-but this version does not. Will be deleting.
Too many ads
by SupperClub on 2019/10/09 18:45
I love this game but it has too many ads. Between each session, there is a long advertisement for another game. Let me have a “pay to avoid ads” option. I also don’t like the power ups I wish it just letter players play. You know something is wrong when you beat an opponent for two rounds by double the points he or she has and then on the last round, they triple your score. I also wish it had a section for people who want to do words that are 4-5 letter minimum. That would be great for us serious word addicts
New update does NOT work
by Pfoodie on 2019/10/08 04:09
Does not work. Tons of glitches!
New start

Just switched over to the new boggle- liked the old streak better- this will take some getting used to😕

Unacceptable glitch/cheat
by Jamhouse73 on 2019/10/06 03:16
.So I’m pretty sure I’ve either just been cheated against, or the game has horribly glitched. I played a game just now, round 2, and SOMEHOW my opponent has scored over 3700 points with finding 74 words. I’ve added up here larger words and it comes NOWHERE near the score she received. Her score should be somewhere around 1000 points for the round and it’s 3 times that. I’m currently at a win streak of 367 and I’m not happy about possibly losing a streak like this from someone who’s glitched or cheated the game. Or bc the game has glitched. Please do something about this. I’ve posted the proof on the Facebook page with direct screenshots from the game in question. I’ve worked very hard and taken a lot of time to get a streak that high and I’ve played this game for almost a decade and this just can’t happen.
Mom neglects children in favor of Boggle

Please help my mom has been addicted to Boggle for multiple months, we haven’t had an meal in days, she has been spending all of her time on Boggle and sending money for rent on the tokens. P.S. the game won’t even start on my phone

Ads are WAY TOO LONG
by Corolla17 on 2019/10/04 16:40
I like the game but after EVERY round I play I now have a THIRTY second commercial. I play several people and thus spend more time waiting for the ad to end. Don’t get this app unless you like watching long ads.
Too many ads
by Monkeypats on 2019/10/03 12:55
I love boggle so I thought I’d give this a chance. The ads though come between every round and are super long. There doesn’t appear to be a way to pay to go ad free. I have been playing for only a day and already I’m tired of the super intrusive ads. Probably not going to play much more... sad.
Cheated
by Dreadmaul on 2019/10/02 10:40
Too many times I play the daily, then just when I get to the super mega prize, it resets to day 1. I’ve played for years but now I’m deleting. Can’t take it anymore.
Won’t let you play solo
by Hedyh on 2019/10/02 03:52
Well it actually will but it takes tokens every time you play so they want you to buy tokens. I’d rather pay a few bucks for a game and play it a bunch than have to buy more rounds of toke s to play.
Amuses
by Scragglewart on 2019/10/01 22:40
Great for relaxing or passing time while waiting for something. However, the same word patterns appear over and over, which sort of makes it just a speed game. Lately, the commercials seem to take double the time they used to take. They are long enough now that I’d rather just quit playing rather than wait.

In Decline
by WHYooISooTHISooSOooDifficultoo on 2019/10/01 04:53
Since there is no way to provide feedback in the game I’m writing here. This has been a favorite game of mine for years the developers did a great job. It’s by far the best version of this game. Recent changes and making game play less fun. Haptics that I can’t turn off that are distracting to the game - An option to turn the vibrations off please! You took away tournament levels that I guess were expensive for you to maintain. Now it is very difficult to win games in tournament mode - for me less options mean less fun. It would improve the game to have more tournament options and not less. Ads are playing for longer and longer. A turn off. I would be willing to pay for the game to remove these. Reducing time to start a tournament would be something worth investing in. That has always been a problem - a serious amount of time is spent just waiting to start. More options to play off-line, please. Sometimes I am on a plane and have no connection. What I do right before traveling is try to start some games up but then when those are played through I can’t do much with the app. More stats would be fun. Would be nice to see things like most frequent works found etc, what times of day my scores are higher or lower (maybe I am better at night or in the morning, etc...), patterns that indicate how I can improve my game, word scores for tournament games to see which words we missed. In game feedback would enable you to get ideas from your users that could inform what the users would like to see to make an even better game.
My FAVORITE GAME APP
by Buttercups mom on 2019/09/30 19:20
This game is great fun. It helps keep my mind sharp and I love it. My daily Lightening Round is my favorite thing about the game. Mine has been stuck on a Monday for several months now. I’ve contacted them about with no response at all. PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!!!
Too Much Good Things
by DadPapaDeanReally on 2019/09/30 01:20
The game is good. The clever things are impressive, The promise of the games following was not easy and took multiple tries to get my real sign on in place. And I prefer to by known by sign on instead of my Facebook name. I recommend having a button to turn off the haptic feedback. But yes I love the game and connections. I am not treating my addiction. Thanks for the opportunity to opine.
Long ads
by gb4w2 on 2019/09/29 20:49
The ads have gotten longer and are very annoying! I will not play as often because of this
Ads are terrible
by cindy🎾🏓 on 2019/09/29 03:18
I purchased the game a few years ago and absolutely loved it. Played it multiple times per day. Recently I was forced to reboot and I lost all my previous games and now I get 30 second ads after every game. Frequently you can’t mute the ads either, so I always have to be aware of where I’m playing so as not to disturb others. So disappointing. Probably will quit altogether.
Boggle
by geg2game on 2019/09/27 16:36
Love the app except for ads between games. Word Streak was a better experience without the ads.
Kill the vibrations!
by Mbpr on 2019/09/26 17:37
Have played and enjoyed for years. Now you’ve added those awful vibrations. I can’t find a “game settings menu” for the kids od me. Let folks opt in instead to just imposing these distracting, annoying new “features!”
Paid version with no ads please
by sad dj thanks to you on 2019/09/26 11:57
Great game but the cost of power ups is too high and too many ads. I would pay for a full version with no ads. Glitches! Glitches! Glitches! Sometimes it won’t take a word during a game as if the word is not a word???
Yes, please! An ad free version!
by Kra-Bones on 2019/09/26 04:01
I spend almost as much time watching game ads as I do playing boggle. I would pay for and ad free version in a heartbeat.
Fast and fun !
by a friend of ali's on 2019/09/26 00:50
This game is fun and addicting! I love swiping words!
Will never be the same
by Jestdms on 2019/09/25 22:24
I was finally forced to switch over from the Scramble with Friends app. The old adage “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” comes to mind. I’m sure the Boggle app is fine, but it will never be the same as the Scramble app. I already don’t like the layout nor the color scheme. Lost this player.
30 second ads are ridiculous
by TrexFrisco on 2019/09/25 15:19
This app recently changed its ad feature to make a 30-second mandatory ad show after every play. It’s annoying and about to make me remove the app.
Deleted
by Carpfodder on 2019/09/25 03:58
Well, they’ve done it. Multiple 30 second and 20 second ads in a row and blasting the sound while they’re playing...love this game, but I’m done and deleting the app. Would love to see the stats on revenue - whether the additional ad $$$ offsets the losses caused by people bailing.
Great game but too many ads
by DC Momma on 2019/09/25 00:25
Love the game, but long video ads have deterred me from playing lately. The more you play, the longer the ads get. Mine are more than 30 seconds and they run every time I play a 2 minute game. Ugh!!
Cheese

Done with Boggle
by cklehmann on 2019/09/25 00:03
Love Boggle - who doesn’t?! - but the amount of time you’re forced to watch dumb ads between game rounds is now intolerable. Especially when the ads are mostly 30 second tutorials on how to play OTHER games. That’s 1.5 minutes of ads for every 6 mins of play time. Not interested. Done with the game.
Ads are soooo long
by emmiemum on 2019/09/24 11:10
I’ve played for years and have loved this game! But lately the ads have gotten so long! I feel like it’s a 45 second commercial after every game. Please stop That!
Games great latest improvements not so much
by Martha Reviews on 2019/09/23 13:45
I guess if you just downloaded the game you would be warned of the new vibrations setting, but if you’ve had the game for years and just turned it on, started a match and it starts vibrating even though you have the volume off, is annoying! I couldn’t get to setting fast enough to shut it off!! Why would something vibrating be anything but distracting in a word game? Love the game in all, but hate the lack of tickets and power ups it once had. I’m not buying them no matter how long I’ve been playing or how addicted I am!! Too many free fun word games out there. This is one of the best but greed is ruining it Put the tokens and power up levels back to where they were please
What Happened??? Give Me My Stuff Back!
by PolarCannon on 2019/09/23 12:34
I’ve been playing this game for years under all of its names. Never had issues. The sound randomly disappears sometimes, so I restart my device and that fixes it. (I need the “guy’s” encouragement as I play.) Except for today. When I opened the app after restarting, I was prompted to log back into Facebook, which I did. (And would do 2 more times because I couldn’t believe my eyes.) That’s when I noticed ALL of my coins (18), tickets (3109), and status (level 32) were GONE! GONE! GONE! In addition, all the games I was playing, along with recently finished games, were gone as well. The only thing that didn’t disappear were my super power-ups. I searched for help, but nothing applies, and there is no way to contact these people. (They really need to stop calling it “contact us” because, you know...you can’t.) I am irate. I faithfully sat through the torturous ads, and checked-in every day for coins and tickets all to basically get a giant middle finger from Zenga. Back at ya, guys! Right back at you.
Ads too long
by Haskelin on 2019/09/23 12:08
Ok guys, 30 second ads are too long in between games. I’m just closing the game out and restarting.
Horrible!!!

How do you turn off that horrible vibration??!!!!
Now With 30 Second Ads!
by Crowmagnon01 on 2019/09/22 20:10
Games are two minutes. Ads are 30 seconds— therefore you’re spending 25% of your time watching advertisements. How about a paid, commercial-free version?

TOO MANY ADVERTISEMENTS !!
by blutaupia on 2019/09/22 15:25
Good grief, get rid of the ads!! They keep getting longer and longer. Or at least provide an ad-free version to buy. Now, I find it faster to just log off/quit Boggle whenever an ad appears rather than go thru the pain of watching them. I give Boggle a low score because the ads take the fun out of playing.
Pay to win
by TekuGai on 2019/09/22 13:16
As much as I love the challenge and the competition in this game, I can’t continue to play in the current money scheme. Needless to say, the ads are annoying, but mostly the point that there are paid ‘time-freezes’ and other assists that are generally unavailable to non-paying players disturbs me. The disadvantage is real. I’ll find another game. Thanks for the good times.
Plain game fun but ads have gotten longer and longer.
by colarm on 2019/09/22 04:14
Core game is fun. Tournament games are strange, not sure anyone can type that fast so must be paying for a lot of extra minutes... not fun. Biggest problem is the ads... they are getting ridiculously long and sometimes hard to get out of.
Too many ads
by loislane14 on 2019/09/21 01:51
I’ve stopped playing because I should not have to sit and watch minutes of ads. Please provide an ad free version. It’s too much between games.
Add plays in the background, deleting app.
by Pike826 on 2019/09/20 18:17
I used to like this game. Now, every time you open the app, an add plays in the background. The only way to stop they add is to force close the app. So annoying, deleting the app.
Too many ads
by Jwassenberg on 2019/09/20 17:44
This is a great game but I find myself waiting for advertisements almost as much as I'm playing the game! I'd gladly pay for an ad free version but it appears that's not an option. The ads even run in the background (sound only) during gameplay which drastically slows the response time of the game; very frustrating in a game where time is critical.
Super Mega Prize
by RetireeGigi on 2019/09/20 15:44
I have been cheated out of the super mega prize three times. When I get down to the last day, the message says that it has expired.
Nice game, bad implementation
by Gandalf Dumbledore on 2019/09/20 15:11
Interesting time killer. Enjoy the competition. However, the ads, especially auto play video with sound, are extremely annoying. Lately the length of ads with no exit has increased so much that the game is no longer payable. I had up to 30 games going simultaneously but I’ve seen most of my opponents drop off as well.
Can’t buy more tokens anymore!!!
by Lipglossjunky73 on 2019/09/20 11:33
I love this game and play it nightly so I splurge for the token packages. I went to pay for the 550 tokens for 25.00 and it won’t let me purchase! I’m essentially throwing my money away for doing this and they should be all over it and are making it difficult for me to do so!!! I’m the kind of sucker consumer this kind of app drools over. It’s forcing me to save my money which is cool but I’m willing to pay for the tokens.... the fact that it won’t let me do it is frustrating!!!
The ads are driving me nuts
by carly___nyc on 2019/09/20 02:01
Why won’t you just take my money people. Let me pay to remove ads. A 30 second ad after every single is driving me absolutely nuts. I started playing a couple weeks ago and I like the game itself but the ads are completely intolerable. I’m searching for a boggle app that will just allow to pay and play my boggle in peace 😫
Boggle with ADS...
by 6neck on 2019/09/19 22:36
Great game...but SO MANY ADS!!! Wasn't bad when you'd have to watch a short ad after every few games..after all..the game is free. But recently..every game now requires a 30 second ad that you can't exit from. They even put the INSTALL button where the "X" should be...pretty shady. Makes me reevaluate even giving 4 stars now. I'm thinking of taking my friends to another game with fewer ads where I don't waste as much time watching ads...they're not that good of friends. Lol
Too many ads - game is no longer enjoyable
by Yodagirl999 on 2019/09/19 16:48
I would happily pay $10 to have this game without ads. I won’t play anymore as I now have to wait 30 sec after every game and watch an ad (generally about games that are absolutely demeaning to women).
Ads are overkill!!!! Recently terrible
by Kurt Bermond on 2019/09/18 16:16
Loved the app but now there is always a 30+ second ad after EVERY game. It used to be maybe a 5 second ad 4 out of 5 games then a 30 second one. It’s way too much to have to sit through a 30-45 second ad to play a 120 second game!!!! I’ll give it another couple days but going to delete soon.
This is not boggle lol
by shaberk on 2019/09/18 13:07
This is an extreme bastardized version of boggle (like all apps; pay to win games these days) but if you find your friends and play fairly it can be fun. For some reason, every minute or 2 I get a Swiping noise, then sounds of an outdoor basketball game??? The chain hoop lol, the sneakers on pavement...???? Whether I’m 1/2 through a round or starting a round or just have it open. Once I close the app it stops so it’s definitely boggle. Take away the use of up 5 power ups ( like really...5 power ups??) and fix your glitches and this game would be gold..
Boggle
by Tbush69 on 2019/09/18 12:27
Game used to be great until they recently added these forced 30 adds, no longer a fan of the game and am considering finding a new game to play.
Fun game but....
by Mkk1215 on 2019/09/17 17:48
There are now 30 seconds of ads after every game that you can’t bypass. Takes way too long to play now
News Long Ads are Frustrating
by anb1124 on 2019/09/17 13:22
I play this game daily but recently, every single ad is 30 seconds long with no option to skip after a certain amount of time or anything. And there’s an ad after EVERY round. That’s a LOT of my time wasted. It’s enough that I’m considering deleting the game.
Background noise
by Ikas mom on 2019/09/17 10:31
Between games I get background noise even with game on silent and phone on vibrate. It’s annoying because the only way to stop it is exit game once it starts it won’t stop. It’s like a sound only ad without visual, sounds like a loud sporting event...going to take a break from game until this is fixed. Excluding this problem I played multiple times a day and very much enjoyed the app.
Great game, annoying ads, weird background noises
by Masa Belly on 2019/09/17 07:16
I love Boggle! I play it everyday! However, the ads have become increasingly annoying. Exiting out of the ads has become an unwanted game in itself, usually taking you to the app store or a website you didn’t ask for. Also, what is up with the “swoosh” sound that then leads to what sounds like a basketball game or a tennis match? It’s so obnoxious and overrides my phone settings somehow when I’ve turned the sound off. So no matter what, I hear it. So frustrating. What’s up with that, Boggle?
Was fun. Now just ads.
by Synthlabs on 2019/09/17 03:46
Enjoyed it for awhile even though it was missing several options I’ve enjoyed on other similar games. Ads were tolerable. Now the ads are intolerable. Can’t even pay to get rid of them so at this point I think they want people to quit using the game. So I am.
Annoying background audio
by dunkeynuts on 2019/09/17 01:43
Love this game and have been playing for years, however in the last week or so there has been an annoying audio clip playing in the background. Starts with a swoosh sound and then Sounds like a basketball game or something with people yelling. Plays even if audio is turned off and phone is on silent. Had to delete the app.
Why is creepy music playing
by JiMeKi78 on 2019/09/17 01:30
I put my phone on silent because I want silence when I play. Recently this game has started having some creepy music and sounds during play. STOP IT!

Ads so distracting, makes fun game almost unplayable
by jdstubdfjlhfr on 2019/09/16 18:18
I used to love this game. Now every ad plays for 30 seconds. Less game, more billboard. I’m over it.

by emgee5050 on 2019/09/16 15:07
Love this game, but they recently went to 30 second ads and it’s just too much. Would happily pay for ad free version.
Game needs fixing
by LuckyDC on 2019/09/15 22:53
Fun game, but the allowing of mega time extensions in the flash (shortest) rounds is a HUGE negative. And the scoring change — from 250 for 1st and 100 for 2nd to 275 and 50 — incentivizes such “cheating” which has literally ruined the game. It’s just not fun anymore to “compete” while others use double the time in order to score a weak victory. The enjoyment of the game disappeared, and I have all but stopped playing. Ads are also a bit excessive, particularly the ones with no option to bypass after a few seconds. Get back to making a game for the players. And lock out Megas in the flash rounds so the great players can truly compete with each other!
Advertising changes
by Madskillzkat on 2019/09/15 21:20
I’m writing this bad review to get the developers attention on the advertisements and background sounds. The ambient sounds of a crowd TAKE OVER MY PHONE and I have to completely close the app to get it to go away. Please fix!
Boggle rocks!
by ruthschaefer on 2019/09/15 20:29

Something Sounds Buggy
by jrhoneybear on 2019/09/15 19:34
Just recently, my wife and I have noticed (on both of our iPhones) what sounds like some sort of broadcast coming in over top of the game, which makes me suspect a possible virus in the game.
Went From Five Star to One
by JJ from IL on 2019/09/15 17:27
I have been playing Boggle every single day for few years, and have always loved it, and have always rated it a 5 star app. However, two things have happened to change my mind: 1) The ads between plays have gradually become so frustratingly long, that I lose my sense of flow/ continuity in the game, and it’s just not fun, so I find myself just quitting the game. And 2) Even though I shut off sounds in settings, often I still have to listen to loud, jangling ads. It’s not only annoying to me, but often times it happens when I’m playing in a place where I must be quiet. I shouldn’t have to shut my device sound off completely, in order to play a quiet game of Boggle.
Great game, odd sound issue
by The_lachinator on 2019/09/15 16:55
Even with my phone on silent and in-game sounds turned off, I keep hearing this odd background sound bite every time I look at my final results from a game or tournament. It’s very annoying. I also wish there was an ad-free option available for purchase.
Sound doesn’t work anymore on iPhone 7

The wiggles
by Boughtabadbook on 2019/09/15 14:10
The letter blocks wiggle way too much. Very distracting.
Fix the sound bug, please!
by banba1 on 2019/09/14 20:40
I’m also getting the weird sound of a basketball game in the background after every game I play. I’ve checked all the settings (sounds are set to off, phone on silent mode), looked on every screen for a hidden ad, reviewed settings...no way to stop the noise, which, as other reviewers stated, is a problem if you’re trying to kill time in a public space.
Needs updating
by Blue in Florida on 2019/09/14 13:32
It used to be fun to win rounds and gain points toward rewards and higher levels. This game no longer gives points for winning regular games, only for tournaments. It now takes months rather than weeks to move up a level. This needs to be fixed.
Too many adds
by Love the audio Bible! on 2019/09/14 12:08
Been playing this game for years. But now they have these 30 second adds, and also this weird background noise- like street noise. Another reviewer described it as a baseball game in the background. Increasing the amount or length of ads doesn’t help you in the long run because people will play less and eventually not at all.
A fun find with one major flaw
by Aumazing on 2019/09/14 06:55
I love word games, and this was right up my street. The best part is being able to play in multiple languages. I agree with others that I would happily pay for an ad-free upgrade and would enjoy a powerup-free match mode. One negative thing — I don’t know if anyone else gets this, but after playing a round, there is often a “swoosh” sound followed by what sounds like kids playing ball on a playground with cars driving by. It is extremely annoying!
sounds
by H3pak on 2019/09/14 05:22
All of a sudden there's a baseball game sound playing randomly in the game. I have the app volume off And my phone volume off. It Still plays and is very annoying. I minimize the app and it still plays. I actually have to close it now. I've used this app for a very long time, but if this continues I will delete it. Looking for help!
Bad Update
by wojo11 on 2019/09/14 02:51
Ads between games are ridiculously long; now a full 30 seconds. Newer update needlessly eliminated some tournament levels and increased the wait time for tournaments to start. Completely ruins game play experience...
Word Streak
by klb2299 on 2019/09/14 02:13
I was going to give boggle a try but nothing moved with the app as was promised. The functionality of word streak is more consistent. However, what has plagued this app just the same as boggle is you win a level and your prize does not show up. Just had it happen yet again and it is really infuriating.
Ruined
by Bbbbbbzzzzz on 2019/09/14 01:11
Used to be fun. Pretty much ruined now due to LONG ads & a bizarre bug in which it plays a sound track that sounds like random street sounds...which keeps playing even after exiting the game!
Ads getting too long
by Quilterbw on 2019/09/13 23:29
Love the game but prscticslly have to exit whole app to get back to game.
I loved this game until recently...
by punkyluvr on 2019/09/13 01:17
This is my go to game for killing time. That being said typically I’m playing this game during downtime at work or while out running errands and I need my phone to be silent while playing. No matter what I do recently there is this weird sound that keeps playing it kind of sounds like a crowd cheering or something and because of this I don’t play the game as much.
Ads are getting ridiculous
by Itfarmer on 2019/09/13 00:35
Over the years there have been constant glitchy issues, though not deal breaking. The last app update now has 30 second ads and ads that continue to have audio in the background - even outside the app. If you think I’m waiting for 30 second ads between 2 minute rounds, you’re nuts.
Old version
by HUGEFANNNNADTRADTR on 2019/09/12 22:44
I much prefer the old version that keeps telling me I am on an out of date one. I don’t know what the pink tickets are for. Where is the explanations?
There is an ad that keeps playing in the background
by KrissE01 on 2019/09/12 20:28
While I am playing the game there is an ad for a grammar app that keeps playing in the background. I have done everything from deleting the app, to resetting my phone, to shutting down my phone for a few hours. It has not gone away or won’t go away. I can’t play in any quite area because the ad plays so loud in the background. You can’t see the ad while playing but you can totally hear it.
Great game but what’s with the glitch?
by AngiiMama on 2019/09/12 12:19
Love this game but it keeps running some kind of sound in the background on my phone whenever I play the game.

Killing my power with stupid long commercials
by MzDuncan on 2019/09/11 02:39
The game is great and ads are one thing but the 30 second and one minute commercials they play after every.single.game are killing my battery. Almost not worth playing anymore. You can’t exit the ad and return to the game. You must watch it. I can tell you that I will never buy one thing from any of the advertisers why are holding me hostage.
Long-time fan with a couple of complaints
by Gabi98769876 on 2018/07/19 14:51
I’ve seen Boggle morph over the years through several versions. It’s one of my favorite online pastimes. I’m enjoying the current format, with a couple of exceptions. In the group tournament program, there is often a waiting period before the game begins once the player slots are filled - a glitch which did not occur in the previous versions. The second issue, which has persisted throughout all the formats, is in the letter touch function. I have to make a conscious effort to touch the letters very lightly when I’m spelling out my words. Even then, I often have to repeat the spell-touching when the letters don’t register which costs me time. And I don’t have this issue when I’m texting. It’s rather frustrating during the heat of competition. Not that I’m losing sleep over it - but an improvement in this department would make for a smoother, fairer game. Otherwise, it meets the mark. Thanks for the free and easy access to tickets and coins. If I had to pay, I wouldn’t play!
Decent game
by tomdert on 2019/08/01 20:39
I have been playing for several years and find that the game has much to keep it I interesting including the tournaments and daily challenge and new bonuses. However it is riddled with bugs which is very frustrating. The daily challenges do not keep track of rankings despite continued promises. The bonuses are not working and the tournaments sometimes fault out for no good reason. Fix the bugs and it would be an awesome game. Don’t fix them and I will likely give up on the game. The new tournament format is terrible. Too few options and actually fewer rewards despite promises of increased rewards. Also daily challenge still does not track rankings. There has been improvement on faulting out on tournaments but still occurs. Update: Continue to be very disappointed with the tournament play options. Also again the daily challenge does not keep track of rankings the way the older version still does. Getting less and less to keep the interest. The bonus board is pretty much a waste with providing more coins than are really needed rather than give tickets and power plays which are much more useful. Seems developers are more interested in making money than keeping the game interesting.
It kills time, unless you want to play more than 30 mins or so at once
by cleomatic on 2017/11/04 01:51
Unlike meatworld Boggle, after a year of play, I've concluded that there's just not that much of a variety of words you ever get the opportunity to play in this app. It punishes you for playing "too much" and forces you to buy tickets or coins to keep on playing--or wait it out. I get that they make money off in-app purchases, but you also have to sit through a constant bombardment of ads and there's no option to pay to avoid the ads--some of which force you to click through to the app's download page to get back to playing Boggle. It also watches your web searches and serves up ads by mining your history, often forcing you to click to a web page you've already seen/gotten the info you need. Worst of all, there seems to be no shortage of creepy guys who try and use it as a nerdy dating method, "you're good with making words with your fingers, what else do those fingers do?" I hate it when random strangers get to chat with random strangers they're playing against because this seems to always be where it goes, but at least you can block players. If I didn't have friends who seem to enjoy this app so much, I would love to never see the app version again. And I adore Boggle in the meatworld, so...
Buggy software, Poor customer service
by skyron71 on 2019/05/21 21:20
I agree with other comments here. On the bright side, Pavel is a fun game to play and while you are playing it it’s enjoyable. That is, until one of the numerous bugs in the software pops up. Such as freezing your screen while you wait interminably for a game to get tallied, following which it often crashes and you lose the tokens you used to play. Others have noted the obnoxious requirements to keep buying power ups in order to be competitive. It would be great not to have any of those and just to play head to head, made the best person win. My most recent miserable experience was having an all-time high 36 game win streak suddenly and mysteriously erased by the software, even though I had not lost a game. When I wrote to customer service about it they repeatedly said they couldn’t do anything about it and claimed I had lost to another player. I asked them to send me the evidence, because there was none on my screen. They wouldn’t do it and obnoxiously kept signing their notes with “Have a great day!“ There are other games online that treat the customer more fairly, have better software and better customer service. Go for those. Leave this one alone.
Getting worse
by kathyp94 on 2019/04/08 13:50
I used to enjoy this game when it was word streak. I feel that it has gone down hill now that it has turned to Boggle. The ads are incredibly long in the new game, and for some reason, In the new game, the algorithm doesn’t match up players that have similar scores. I have no illusion. I know I’m great at this game, but I enjoy it, and know that word games are good for the brain. But without fail, the game matches me with player that have double and triple and sometimes quadruple my average score. To Their scores are partly because they’re better (I get that) but also because they are clearly using lots of power ups. Many of these scores are completely unrealistic...even for amazing players. I wish they would match up people that want to use a similar amount of “cheats” or none at all. Now onto the power ups. In Word Streak, I also feel like they are charging a lot more (imaginary coins, which build up VERY slowly, or you can buy with REAL money) to play, and use a single power up (which used to be free). They are clearly pushing players to the point that they NEED to actually purchase coins to play this game with any measure of success. Disappointed that they took a good game and ruining it.
Very enjoyable game!
by NKarigaca on 2017/12/04 21:42
1st review below. 2: One problem: when I finish a third rounds and want a rematch, the game keeps showing up with "done" rather than "play". I have to go back to a completed game on the top line to play. It's annoying. Otherwise, I still love the game. The game has really become a significant part of my life, one of the ways I unwind, keep my brain active, engage with words, which I love, and interact daily with some family members. This version has continued improvements other versions have made. A few minor problems remain, but nothing frustrating except for the fact that the words in the "chat" are almost too small to read if one uses an iPad mini, as I do. (COULD THE FONT BE MADE LARGER, PLEASE?) Other minor problems: 1. Sometimes when I tap on a game someone sent me, I get a white screen (maybe for chatting) instead of the game itself. When this happens, I try a few more times, and I always get the game eventually. 2. Occasionally, when I finish with a game and try to start another, the lower right box keep saying "done" instead of "play". 3. Sometimes when scores are over 100, the score is just given as 1.. instead of the full number. 4. Before I got to my number 2 point, the words I was typing went underneath the keyboard, so I can't see what I'm typing unless I stop and pull up the screen, which won't stay up unless my finger is holding it up. This has always happened when I've tried to comment.
Fun with Flaws
by BillHorvath on 2018/08/13 05:21
The game itself plays well; most of the problems are in the infrastructure that surrounds it. The delay waiting to see scores is annoying: rather than just showing your score and your opponent’s, you have to wait while the score display spins through every number between 0 and your respective scores. Every time that happens is five seconds of your life you’ll never get back. What’s infinitely worse is the messaging/chat system. It’s broken down by game (rather than by opponent), so if you have more than one game going against one opponent, you can have multiple conversations going as well, meaning you have to flip back and forth between games and check chat in each one to remember what you’ve said. Even better, no chat history is preserved across games; each game is a fresh slate. That’s great if you want to conceal evidence, but not so helpful if you’re trying to remember what you said to someone last week. WWF’s messaging solution is far superior.
Pay to win piece of crap
by TickleMeCthulhu on 2018/04/22 13:00
I love the core game of Boggle, but I cannot stand the implementation of pay to win. You can never tell what power ups your online opponent is using, so you’re strongly encouraged to use your own. Oh, they give you one for free, but the rest require tokens which, to be fair, you *can* earn without spending a dime, but by now, I’m sure you know how this works. If you play a lot, you’ll run out of those tokens fast, so if you want to keep playing - and you want to keep up with your competition with power ups- you’ll need to throw some cash in to buy more tokens. It’s terrible. How can one hope to beat an otherwise evenly matched player who has a full extra minute of time in their game? I wish there was a league or something where you could play without any power ups. Yeah, your scores won’t top the power-upped leaderboards, but at least you’d know that you were playing on an even field. I don’t know- maybe there should be a way to see what power ups your opponent was using. By doing this, the developer could allow the player to know they’re playing a fair match, and still be just as greedy by strongly encouraging us to use/buy those stupid power ups.
Fun but lots of bugs that gets annoying
by Sogtgvhjvhdsv on 2018/09/08 11:28
I just upgraded to this version from Word Streak. I love playing the tournaments but ever since I started using this version for tournaments it always freezes my entry where it kept showing me it was still preparing but other players were already playing and I would still be on the entry screen. This happened multiple times until I would just end up quitting and lose my entry tickets. And sometimes it would just stay on the screen forever. Another quirk is after the game ends I used to be able to swipe back to the previous rounds to see what everyone scored but in this version it automatically jumps to the leaderboard (which I don’t care for) and goes back to main menu. Gets annoying. Other than that I do like the new games and challenges it has over Word Streak. But now when I play tournaments I go back to the old version. Update: ok so I’ve just completed a tournament and found that it did not update my power-ups. Do you know how many tournament games I had to play to finally reach completion to earn power-ups? Wasted my time, very aggravating. Would give negative 10 stars if I could. Good bye app!
Nothing but horrible ads
by cdzuff on 2018/07/31 04:01
I like Boggle. Not this Boggle. Boggle won’t teach much by way of vocabulary unless you grunt a lot. Playing with friends sitting around the breakfast nook is glorious. Having to sit through a plethora of mind-numbing, pathetic ads covering apps that ads designed by and for cretins is deplorable. Zynga is a wretched company for forcing its customers to witness such a disgusting show of total maniacal greed. The technical issues have been a trademark of Zynga. I give the game a few stars because I have enjoyed Boggle itself for decades. My recommendation is to look for the same game by a reputable developer. Update: as the game keeps bugging me to review the program; it is still very buggy with iOS 11.4.1. The settings don’t always work and the thing freezes on my iPad. I have to delete it and re-install about once a week. Nothing changes. Nothing is fixed. There are pointless banners with "quests" meant, one should think, to entice the player to spend money to buy what amounts to dispensation to cheat for those morally challenged individuals. Anyway, everything’s the same as it always is in Zyngaland.
Addictive, but can be costly
by Abcees on 2018/04/03 00:02
After long resistance I finally switched from Scramble with Friends to Boggle. The game works well, it’s great fun, and I have the ad-free version, but there are still a few bugs -for example, in the daily challenge, I can no longer see how my score compares to other folks I play against. Also, people I have never played against show up as ‘friends,’ and I can’t delete people I no longer compete with. The game now pushes you to play the live challenge by giving significant numbers of tournament entry tickets and just a few coins for regular games (in addition to to the regular coin refill. If you want to win a tournament, you really to buy have power-ups, and they’re not cheap. Also, I’d like to see a more equitable challenge matching system. Pitting low level players against people 40 or 50 levels ahead again pushes players to buy, buy, buy more power ups just for a shot at making it past the first level of the game.
Horrible glitches/Can only keep playing if you spend $$$$
by Cnp8942 on 2018/04/29 15:59
Where do I even begin? I never leave reviews but this game has made me so frustrated. I love word games and am an avid Words With Friends player so I thought I’d try out Boggle. The obvious glitches during tournaments and the short ads during matches don’t even bother me much. What does bother me is that I have beaten several levels of the Solo Challenge and have not received any tickets for it and it’s also obvious that the only way to win during tournaments is to buy a ton of power ups with real money. No, I don’t think I’m the greatest player ever, but there’s no way that 65 year olds are on there doubling my word count/score without power ups. 5 power ups per game?! Come on. You can even see when they use 2/3 minutes worth of freezes. What is the point of even trying to play if you aren’t willing to spend money on the game every single day? I get that in app purchases are common, but this is ridiculous. You also get no rewards for playing regular matches, don’t why would I keep playing? The developers of the game really need to take a look at how absurd the structure of this game is.
Favorite Game
by FlyerChick on 2018/11/10 15:00
This is my favorite game. I love word searches and this one keeps me engaged. You can play as much or as little as you like. I play daily and feel like I am constantly improving. There are some bugs but not enough to turn me off and they seem to be fixed quickly. Some feedback for the developers, I wish there were more opportunities to earn tickets, coins and power ups and it would be nice to pick your prize. I love the daily challenges but I miss the ones with a riddle answer or certain words to look for. The daily challenges are a lot of fun but I wish the payoff was a bit better. Also, I hate the difficult letter search. You could play all day and not get any puzzles with those letters. I play daily but there is no way I can play that much. I guess the purpose is to get you to spend all your tickets and make an in app purchase but I can’t spend that much time playing. Great game though and I can see that many people play daily.
Great Game! Some Limitations
by SkepticUsh on 2018/03/25 01:10
Boggle is a fantastic game with some serious upgrades over the years that make the game way more challenging than in past times. It’s totally worth the download. However it lacks certain thing that limit the game and shift it all together into a brand new stand alone game. Power ups are great fun. But it would be swell to join matches that only match players who don’t want power ups. To Harken back to the original game for which I am endlessly a fan of. The power ups do tilt the game in the direction of the person with the most which is fine but the coins to purchase the power ups have to be earned which places a deficit in the game some what. Easily avoidable by doing the bare minimum for a week or two should put one ahead to battle it out in power ups. Lastly for me, the biggest issue by far was not being able to chat to those I am playing. I understand there is a chat feature but over the last month (since I downloaded this game) I am have been unable to talk with those I play. Which is a bummer. Because I feel like I’m missing out on making friends and learning from other players. So developers (I’m not above thinking I’ve not done something wrong in trying to chat so please lend a hand if you can.) I am able to write chats but completely unable to see what others write to be. Can we fix this wonderful bros and lady bros? I’m trying to make friends here. Much love!
Good Games but it Needs to Fix Some Problems
by Sadie47 on 2019/08/06 17:33
I like Boggle. The games are fun and I think it’s pretty good brain exercise. However, the game has some flaws that need a fix. I don’t understand their timing for some major play. Sometimes the game is available at 3:00 am and sometimes it is available mid morning and sometimes it takes until afternoon. But some of the parts that are needed to fulfill the game card becomes available long beforehand. That forces the player to play in the middle of the night to finish the card to score the points needed. Then there’s the games that require players from a player list. The majority of those people don’t finish their games and they just sit forever in a list that prevents you from fulfilling the requirements for the game. It’s ridiculous to have to wait for players who won’t finish their game. Clean up the list or give the player a way to finish the games without players who don’t or won’t play. Sometimes the game sticks and the player can’t finish the game. Sometimes the points aren’t awarded. When the game freezes up you lose your “payment (tickets or coins) and it usually freezes before the beginning of the final game in the series. That’s frustrating! If you can deal with the problems and the frustrations, then by all means play the games. The games are fun and challenging. I just wish the creators would fix the problems.
Bogle Review
by Rjpomerene on 2018/06/30 21:32
I play every day multiple times and enjoy pushing myself to think and move quickly. I like that I can review the words I could have played at the end of each game. Bogle is fun. The only improvement is to curb advertisers who bypass sound. I keep sounds off because I often play at odd times when I can’t sleep. These “rude” advertisers blare sound and wakes my husband. What if you try to play bedside at a hospital waking a sleeping family member or roommate in a hospital or nursing home. I fully understand you need advertisers to support the games which I enjoy but these few who design and program to override the off sound for players actually makes me angry. Some people have a legitimate reason for turning off the sound. I love the cute Pampers advertisement. I can enjoy it and smile every time I see it without the sound. Otherwise I love playing Boggle, it keeps me sharp, it keeps me social. Five Stars.
Boggle
by Kathy McCune on 2018/04/19 04:26
I used to enjoy playing some of the players who were similar in ability over and over again. That seems to be impossible because the game keeps throwing you new players who quickly fill up your allotment of contenders, therefore, you’re continually playing new players. Don’t forget we are humans and sometimes we form weird little “relationships” based on words. This only happens when you look forward to playing certain challengers because you know their game playing strategy. Oftentimes the game won’t let you challenge because there are too many open games. So boohoo. Can you go back to the way it was? Kathy M. I must also comment on the greed or whatever drives you to limit the number of tokens so drastically. The tokens are also hard to buy. I wouldn’t mind buying a few tokens but my iPad is nor recognizing my fingerprint and there is no option for a password login.
Fun, but constantly glitchy
by Melbell86 on 2018/03/18 02:14
I love playing Boggle. You do run out of coins, but I just play the tournament games while I wait on coins to refill. As long as you are a decent player then you should win enough tickets to play in tournaments without having to wait. THE DOWNSIDE... the game is soooooo glitchy. The back button in the top left hand side, rarely works or takes a long time to respond. I have to close out of the app just to go back. Secondly, the tournament rounds will frequently freeze up and says that there was an error sending your move. Which leads to you losing the round. I have also had situations where the word point totals weren’t added correctly. Usually that is against the fake game players (not actual people). Sometimes the tournament games won’t load at all. I’ve sat for 5 to 10 minutes just waiting on a game to start and finally figured out it was frozen and had to close out of the app. As you can see, many glitches which is unfortunate because I love the game.
I like not seeing who is using what
by JulieAJarvisBarker on 2017/10/14 11:31
I am seeing many reviews where players are wanting to know what power ups their opponents are using. I like not knowing. If I get beat, I don’t care how I got beat, it makes me feel more competitive. I like seeing what worlds were found that I missed. I don’t care how my opponent found them, I just like learning the new words, then using them later. It’s actually made me a better player. Until I learned all of the possibilities with words, I sucked at this game. I was trying to find as many small words as possible. Now, I start each game scanning the layout and specifically looking for letters that make words longer and therefore worth more points. In short, I like it. I’m not going to pay for power ups, but if someone who I’m playing against is, I suppose they rightfully won the game; they actually spent their money to do so. I’m okay with that.
Fun but glitchy
by sheryy77 on 2018/09/09 04:51
I love Boggle! It’s such a fun game! I’m bugged with the glitches though. It takes quite a while to load as opposed to other games that are much more complex. Nearly every time I play the daily challenge it sends me right back to the challenge after I’ve finished it and gone back to the main menu! What a pain. A few times my stats were all screwed up and wrong and at least twice it somehow gave my words and score to my opponent and gave me a zero! Often times I try to start a game but a glitch won’t allow it to start. Many times recently the game just closes for no apparent reason and I have to open it back up and wait for it to load again! Ugh! Now there’s the weekly challenge that I don’t care a lick about. I’m sure this adds to the long load time. With so many glitches I don’t think you should add more stuff. The apps capabilities already seem strained. The chat also takes quite some time to load. When the game works right it’s a lot of fun.
Change The Decline FAQ
by dncinv on 2018/08/12 11:52
I finally deleted this game. I haven’t played as long as most players and am only okay. I hate that the daily challenge players can be 10xs as good as you. It indicates that you don’t suffer a loss for declining a match but that is just a lie. It constantly shows as “other player won”. When I reopen it, it is a game in which I have 0 points and declined. Often it says I quit when I did not. I may have quit A Game, once but 2 or 3 of 10 games will have one of the 2 glitches. Last the back button and touch sensitivity is terrible. After writing tech about the first two glitches many times and their replies being that you can’t decline after the other person played. What? If someone invites me to play then of course they played. I don’t know their score and decline because their average is a Zillion Times better. That was the last straw for me. Too bad I loved the game and since I have been very sick it has kept me occupied but not worth the bother if I can’t depend on support to comply to your rules.
Used to be better...
by Doggilicious on 2018/05/01 13:43
...then all this silly crap got added to give players more variations. I understand that. I don’t like it. Since the introduction of the add-ins, loading time is infernally long. One of the most annoying aspects of those additions is the daily prize. The grid shows the daily prize, which gets clicked. That pops-up a “mystery box” (which is no mystery since we’ve already seen it) which has to be tapped to open; & finally a collect button appears. It’s just three taps, two of which are completely redundant and therefore unnecessary. It’d be nice to have a “Boggle Lite” so players like me who don’t care for the extras can just play the game we enjoy. (New: I did finally note the small settings button which allows players to opt out of so-called smart matches (they are not: 1 in 10 reflects my skill level) and other potential matches. It was nice to find, but changing that option did not improve the game-load time significantly. Since that’s not going to happen, I’ll continue to play, but the rating stands.
Response to Cleomatic
by keithdotcom on 2017/12/18 02:33
First of all the app is a wonderful game and a nice learning tool. You can spell big words if you know big words. With the puzzle being so small it is difficult if you have a limited vocabulary (like Cleo who rated it 2 stars and wined about it). Nobody uses it as a dating sight unless you are responding back or make yourself noticeable in that light. There are rude people that get their feelings hurt because you outwitted them. Some like to use the blame of buying words. It’s part of a strategy, sometimes using words can inspire your mind (or jump start your thinking). When folks get curt or rude I just say “have a pleasurable day. There is not a shortage of players. You can play free games all day by signing up for tournaments etc. The game is good dope and lots of fun. If you are looking for a serious challenge, come knock on my door and I’ll give you what you’re asking for. Have a great day everyone.
Great game / crappy developers
by pitmlp on 2019/03/11 01:24
I only play 2 online games - this is still one of those 2. Love the game. Lots of things need to improve but still it is great. However, this app gets 1 star because it is the single worst team of developers (might only be one the way it seems) I have seen with any app or software product I have ever used. Problems have gone on since the change to boggle. If I owned this app I would fire everyone there and replace them with people who are. Terrible. Update: more confounding decisions made by this company - they create stats which get people excited and playing more games than they otherwise would and then they reverse all value created by changing the time for the game so u have half the time - thereby making past stats which have been going on for years, completely useless. Almost like 6 year old kids are running the app. Completely moronic. I literally stopped playing when they did this and will check once a month to see if they change it back. No app I have ever used has been so poorly maintained.
Fun game to play only with your actual friends

I give this only 3 stars because it is fun but you never know if the person you are playing in a random match is using a million power ups. I play my husband and we use only the freebie. I know there are “professional” players (whatever the H*** that means) who claim that their fingers move faster than the speed of light and don’t use power ups but if you get one of them in a random match you will forever have your daily challenge compared to them as though they are your friend - random matches are NOT friends and I’m sick of being compared to them. So one star off for that idiocy and one star off for not telling the players how many power ups their competitor is using. So 3 stars. With the new “quests” that have a pop up on the top of your games while the totals are adding up, I almost took off another star. That is so completely stupid and I’m sick of getting reminders to claim my quest points.
Used to be Good

Played this game daily for years when it was Word Streak and something before that. Loved it and probably played it more than any phone app game. I always wondered how Zynga got away with calling it something other than the Boggle I grew up playing in the real world in the cube box with the clear lid where you shook it by hand and used a little old sand filled hourglass timer. Thought everything would be fine when it changed to Boggle. I was forced to update from Word Streak after avoiding it as long as possible because the game play is just all around inferior. I can’t make nearly as many words. I kept thinking maybe I’d get used to it, but I’m bout to just quit playing. I would give the older Word Streak game 4 1/2 stars. I gave this current version of Boggle 3 stars, but that’s just because I didn’t want to totally trash a game I have loved for years. Like I said, I think I’m just going to quit playing this new version bc it’s so inferior.
Power ups are lame
by GRGarber on 2019/01/21 20:43
TL/DR: either add a no power ups area or show us what power ups the other side used. Preferably you do both. If you’ve read any reviews, you’ll notice a common theme: it’s annoying to have to pay for power ups to compete with people who clearly use the “mega-freeze” and “mega-inspiration” on about every turn. The app developers want to make money, and I won’t begrudge them for that, but at least tell us what the other person used so that we can see if we were outcompeted or they just used a ton of extra power ups. OR just add an area where you can’t use power ups so that you know you’re on the same footing. I can almost see the wheels spinning in the owners’ minds: “But, if we make a no power ups area, then people would gravitate there and we would lose revenue.” Well, you might be right short term, but true Boggle fans are going to jet if they haven’t already since it’s frustrating to lose to someone and not know whether it was their skill or power ups doing the work.
Small format
by Lillboat on 2019/03/27 13:28
I have been playing this game for a few years now. I really enjoy it. There are a few things that are not working well right now. 1. About 90% of the time, my score is the only one on the leaderboard. Occasionally, the others players show up, but not often. In other words, I’m mostly playing against myself. Why is that? 2. After a game is finished, I have to wait about 30 seconds before I can restart a game with that player. Otherwise it says “done” and I have to go to the finished games to restart that game. Irritating. 3. I have always had a problem with not being able to play on a “level” playing field. I only use my free power ups, except when I know someone continuously uses more. It is a losing battle to out “power up” another player. Have you considered another option? I would like to know that my skill was what won or lost a game; not by how many power ups someone is willing to use just to win. 4. I rarely play in the tournaments, so those pink tickets are like a punishment to me. I probably have thousands saved that will just keep accumulating. You have fixed many of the previous glitches. I am grateful for that! It is a great game. These are just some of my personal issues. Thank you. Ann Lilly
Good, but needs improvement
by Bunigrl33 on 2018/08/20 16:06
Many times, while playing my daily match game, the post-game ad will freeze. I must leave the app to get the ad to play, but when I do so, I lose the tokens I was supposed to earn for that game (I think this has been fixed now). I agree with those who commented that it would be more fair to see what power-ups your opponent used during a round. It seems like the same letter combinations show up game after game. Also, I don’t know if this game is English only, or if it’s available in other languages, but I noticed a lot of non-English words are accepted as valid. I’ve looked up the definitions of unfamiliar words to find out they’re Greek, Hebrew, Scottish, or Old-English, not in common usage anymore. Then, when I play real Boggle with my friends in person, I have to remember these aren’t real English words and I can’t use them outside of this app.
Issues with loading
by rekoorbls on 2019/08/11 20:52
I love, love, love this game but recently seem to have lots of issues with loading the screens to play. Many times the screen locks up on me and I end up just quitting and going to play another of my games. It would be wonderful if you could resolve these issues and make the game work better (like it used to - maybe it’s getting to be too popular?? Continued issues with the games.....I love this game but the issues are getting worse and worse. Game continues to freeze up on me constantly - so much that I have well over 500 tokens accumulated because I can only play a couple games before it freezes on me. Also, how do you get the freeze tokens?? Those are the ones I prefer, but seldom seem to get them as awards. This is a great game but it is very frustrating to deal with the freeze-ups!
What Happened??? Give Me My Stuff Back!
by PolarCannon on 2019/09/23 12:34
I’ve been playing this game for years under all of its names. Never had issues. The sound randomly disappears sometimes, so I restart my device and that fixes it. (I need the “guy’s” encouragement as I play.) Except for today. When I opened the app after restarting, I was prompted to log back into Facebook, which I did. (And would do 2 more times because I couldn’t believe my eyes.) That’s when I noticed ALL of my coins (18), tickets (3109), and status (level 32) were GONE! GONE! GONE! In addition, all the games I was playing, along with recently finished games, were gone as well. The only thing that didn’t disappear were my super power-ups. I searched for help, but nothing applies, and there is no way to contact these people. (They really need to stop calling it “contact us” because, you know...you can’t.) I am irate. I faithfully sat through the torturous ads, and checked-in every day for coins and tickets all to basically get a giant middle finger from Zenga. Back at ya, guys! Right back at you.
Great game, but you MUST MAKE THE FONT BIGGER again!
by rockinwiththedrummer on 2018/07/22 07:20
I've been playing all the versions of this game for over 7 years. It's a fun, well-run game, though I prefer the previous, simpler versions. I'm annoyed by the constant game requests by random people EVERY time I get on to play with my friends. A new game every once in a while is ok, but I get way more game requests than I could ever play. Chat has been much improved in consistency over the years. This latest update is a deal breaker, though! The font is way too small on everything...and to no point as blank space is left all around the game and chat screens. I can't even read what I just typed to a friend in chat, the font is so small. I'm using an iPhone X, so no excuses for screen size. The game play was just impossible due to the tiny squares. Please fix this ASAP or you're going to lose a lot of players! If not for this new update, I'd rate this game a 4+ because it's very fun.
Uninformative tournament stats
by Wubbee on 2019/08/24 04:26
The game is okay for the boggle word enthusiast. Winning (or losing) doesn’t necessarily tell you how good you are at finding words, though. You don’t know what “power ups” your opponent is using, or how many (they can technically use up to 5 per round). Meanwhile, tournament players don’t seem to be well matched - but this is possibly because players have meaningless stats. They are: games won, 1st place wins, and total tickets won. These stats are kind of useless without knowing how many TOTAL games have been played. Player won 500 games. That’s great. But was it 500 of 500 games played? Or 500 of 100,000 games played? Big difference. Also, total tickets won is kind of redundant. You can sort of figure it out by knowing the first two stats (games won, 1st place wins). But the other thing is, who cares about the tickets. More interesting is their win percentage, which is unavailable.
Too many issues
by ryanlikesphotography. on 2019/04/28 14:08
I love Boggle, have been playing since I was a kid. This is actually a great version with many fun features but little things ruin game play. My biggest problem is the incredibly annoying sound effects. Even when they’re off the app cuts off all other sound from the device and you can’t even listen to your own music and I end up playing in silence. Not fun. Power-ups are a big problem too. Real Boggle is a great mind exercise. I like to play without them as they take away from the actual skill of the game. Theyre trying to make money on them and they make game play about power-ups rather than actual ability. They also give the user such an incredible advantage it makes it not fun to get crushed constantly by people using the power-ups. At least give the option to pair up with people not using power-ups. For the record, “Spin” is not a power-up, it’s part of the game, should be a given. Hope Zynga makes it better, I’ll be looking for a better version in the meantime.
Too many technical issues
by aamari0615 on 2017/12/07 02:54
I️ have not been able to play in any of the daily tournaments for over a week. I️t won’t take my coins to play or if I️t does and I️ play then the screen just comes up stating “0 place of 0 players” and nothing happens. On the main screen I️t just says “waiting for results” but again nothing happens. I️ have had to uninstall and reinstall 6x. I️ wrote to support and even attached a screenshot of the screen but no reply! I️t was my favorite game but the support is terrible. Time to uninstall for good I️ think. Update: support did get back to me and told me to do exactly what the section of the game says to do. I did it all but now I can’t participate in daily tournaments at it. When I hit enter nothing happens! Is anyone else having trouble playing in daily tournaments???
Reasonably entertaining
by Rob Bar on 2018/02/04 06:49
I enjoy Boggle, so this is a fun way to pass time. The problem is that frequently I challenge a person to a match and they don’t respond, so I’m stuck with a game that isn’t being played. They only let you have a certain number of games open at one time, therefore people not playing can limit your ability to play other players. Of course you can resign from the game, but I’d rather play than not play, plus sometimes I’ve used tokens to initiate that match and would rather not waste them while I have a choice. Also the chat feature is linked to the match you’re playing with a person, which means it closes not long after the match is completed. To keep talking to the person one of you needs to open another match, not a serious problem, but you lose your chat history.
Glitch or intentional change??
by bmbobblehead on 2019/06/05 11:22
What happened to the first power-up being FREE? I've been playing this game for 8 years and the first power-up had always been FREE, the 2nd one cost 1 token and the 3rd one cost 3 tokens. But now that's been flipped and the first one costs 1 token, the 2nd one costs 3 tokens and then comes the FREE power-up. Is this a glitch? Or is this an intentional, unhappy change? Other than that I love playing this game, as each round is just 2 minutes of play. I feel like I'm getting some brain simulation benefit. I used to get annoyed at some of the "words" that are allowed - especially those that are foreign/middle Eastern, that are not known words. But now I'm used to it. I have a couple of people from different places in the country/world that have played this game with me for years. It's been fun!
Love this game!!! Don't have to spend money to play!!!😍
by J.R.G.R.H. on 2017/11/27 10:50
I'm a big puzzle gamer, and this one is one of my favorites. Word games keep your brain sharp, but this game works your brain out in many different ways. I'm looking forward to where they take this game, but I'm also very happy with the way it is now. One last thing....I love that they do not force you to spend money on this game in order to play it. The options are there, of course, but they have a way to win power-ups without spending money at all. It is one of the reasons why I chose this game above all of the others. It's a fair way of not cutting out potential players on a budget. I love that, and will always stay loyal to this game for that reason above any others. Way to go, Boggel Creators!!! Keep up the great work!!!
Addictive game, but with glitches
by BinnieMae on 2018/07/17 17:03
I love playing, perhaps too much. The past few days there have been glitches that make it impossible to get out of a challenge, i.e., half price Tuesday and one on one Wednesday. It's the same board over and over and at the end it says there are 0 players and won't "release" me. I've contacted support and have done everything they said, including uninstalling and reinstalling the app several times. The glitch is on their end and they aren't fixing it. I especially enjoy one on one Wednesday because it's fast. You don't gain any ground because of the cost of tickets, but you get back enough to keep going. ***Update*** Almost two months later and they haven’t fixed the problem with the lightning rounds/daily games. Each support person tells me to do exactly what the last support person tells me. Nothing fixes it. The problem is on their end and they won’t fix it. Because of that, I’m reducing the stars to 1. But Zynga support won’t care.
Game is fun...Limiting fun but enough
by AnneR• on 2019/03/16 13:27
Love this app adaptation of the game Boggle. Lots and lots of variety versions so anyone can find a style they like. I miss the “learning” aspect that a Boggle App once had in which you could view all possible word finds and even get definitions after you played the board. Good vocabulary booster when you can actually see all possibilities. I’m a purist so straight head-to-head Boggle is my fav. Unfortunately you have to use the quirky power ups to compete enough to earn coins to play multiple games. Wish app had a ticket to coin exchange so I can cash in easier-to-accumulate tickets for coins. Regardless of the limiting play factor it’s worth exercising your brain to play. Plus, I guess it’s a good way to limit your screen time and actually put device down to interact in real world!
Kills time but mean
by Flashy Ramone on 2019/06/01 18:23
I’m only going to focus on a specific complaint I have about this app: the daily goals. If I’m playing someone who is nowhere close to my level, I prefer to go easy on them. I don’t get off on blowing them away, I don’t want to turn them off playing with me, and I don’t want to waste power ups just so I can reach 700 points or 60 words or whatever. The daily challenges or goals or whatever make it so that I often have to choose between earning tickets or not embarrassing my opponent. The app also screws with you by making you try to find 15 words with certain letters in them, then gives you board after board without ANY of those letters!! You can slightly increase your chances of seeing those letters by using more power ups, but the game is stingy with free tickets. What a surprise-want to really play? Spend real money. (NO.)
Fun game
by Bettster on 2018/03/12 13:00
I enjoy playing this game both in the head to head matches and the tournaments. I wish there were more options for independent play, other than the daily challenge. It would also be great if we could choose longer times to play independently. I love how you can see the list of potential words, as well as the words of yourself and your opponents, after a head to head round is completed; is there a way to do that after the daily challenge? Sometimes the opponents in both the head to head or the tournaments are way outmatched, it gets discouraging because you know before the round even starts that you’ve lost that coin or ticket. The ads get to be a bit much at times but overall I love this game enough that I play it daily and throw money at it.
Several bugs short of 5 stars
by Fix-Scramble on 2018/05/26 02:35
I like the app, the games and different challenges. However, if they fail to update the app often, it will start to lag, pause and crash. When the app does crash, it’s usually after starting a game, which then takes your tokens with it. One other thing I don’t like is the games are often repeated; I’ll start a game and notice that I’ve played the exact tiles several times before. A lot of complaints, but I gave it 4 stars because of the ease of use; open the game and play an opponent. Also the number of members, I have never had to wait to start a game. Also the different options and challenges make it so I don’t get bored of normal player vs player gameplay.
Great game but....
by DeeMackadoo on 2019/05/01 13:05
I would love the new daily quests but I think they should keep them a little less challenging. I’m sure they make them that way to entice you to keep spending in order to complete them but come on!!! If I have to find 70 words a game 4 times or use Vision 6 times...I shut it down. It would be nice to earn power ups instead of a few tickets every time. I like that you can watch ads in the store to earn stuff but those rewards are horrible being only one or two coins or tickets per ad. I’ve only gotten a power up once by watching the ads. Seems Zynga is getting greedy to force you to spend money while receiving a fortune off the ads as well. I do like the customer service response when there are game glitches.
Not as good as Word Streak
by Stelynquin on 2018/02/24 19:55
The main thing I don’t like about this app is that under the heading “your turn”, it gives them ALL, starting from the oldest, even those from at least a year ago, so you have to side-scroll through a very long list until you finally come to the ones you are currently playing. and, I always have played all of my turns in the past, so I have no idea why there are so many games listed under “my turn.” So, in the past few days, I have taken my turn in several of these older games, but they continue to be listed under “my turn.” And when I tapped on them again, it gave the same grid as the first time Also, Boggle with Friends is slower to load than Word Streak, plus I don’t like the colors, grid, or layout of it. I will stick with Word Streak as long as possible.
Repetitive and Spelling Errors
by aRross12 on 2017/12/10 10:02
This is the second time I’ve played a Daily Challenge Puzzle, that some of the words they list for you to find for extra points, isn’t even able to be spelled. One was “Cotton” but there was only one T, and today’s it lists “Candy” with no Y. Is this intentional or are the people putting these lists together too busy putting nonsense words in the puzzles that they forget the main theme of daily? It seems like it’s a repeating list of about 60 words, and the rest are acronyms, abbreviations, or some other word I’ve never heard of, then looked up, and still found to be utterly ridiculous. I loved this game for the first week, and am becoming more and more bored and irritated by it. I find I spend most of my two minutes throwing random letters together to find some crazy non-English word. Get it together.
Love the game, sick of the bugs
by Danni Loves Puzzles on 2018/05/17 06:49
I love the game. It is fun and somewhat challenging. The problem is that the game is buggy and tech support has not fixed the problem. When I reported the issue (have reported several times) they send me a canned response to uninstall then reinstall the game, with no real fix. I read some other reviews and it seems I am not the only person having issues. I will keep playing because it passes the time. If I had issues with an app at my place of employment and our tech support couldn’t resolve the problems they would be replaced. Come on guys, it cannot be that difficult - it has been months without a resolution. (Issue is that the leaderboard for the daily challenge doesn’t populate, I only see my own results)
Mostly good
by jbuss7 on 2017/11/12 07:25
As someone who played boggle with my family as a child, I was excited to find it as an app. Overall the game is good but I do have a few things I would enjoy seeing. First off I know some people want to know what power ups other people have used and honestly I’d be okay either way but I would also like is if it would let me know what power ups I used in the previous round just to remember if I needed them or not. Then again that’s part of the game and not a big deal. My main concern as of late however, is that sometimes when an ad comes on, even when my device is on mute, the ad plays super loud. It’s frustrating so I’d love if someone could figure that one out haha
Doesn’t credit you all your words
by Unhappy former listener 😡 on 2018/02/05 19:02
I’ve been playing this app for years. I love the game of Boggle, always played it in my family around the table. But over the past few months I’ve been repeatedly noticing that words I’ve played in game are being left out in my summary, and not just a couple, most I’ve seen is 29 words valued at 761 points when added up. That’s the difference between a score of 1667 in a round compared to 2424 that it should have been!! I feel really cheated here. Customer service is impossible to get in contact with, and no resolution when I do. Feel like this game is going down the crapper. I’ve had many issues with words with friends and Crosswords with friends too. Zynga needs to make themselves available for “actual” customer service and stop being evasive, I’m not sure I’ll be playing with crap like this going on. 😡😡
