Scrabble and Boggle are both vocabulary testing word games using lettered tiles or cubes. The trademark and copyright for both games belongs to Hasbro Inc.
Scrabble is a word game for 2 to 4 players scoring points by forming words using individual lettered tiles placed on a game board in crossword fashion. The game uses a board with a 15 by 15 marked grid with lettered tiles, each carrying a score printed on the bottom right of the tile. Scrabble has 2 blank tiles that can be used as any letter but do not carry a score. The Scrabble board has 'premium squares' which can triple or double the score of the letter or the entire word.
Boggle is a word game for any number of players by finding words by shaking a tray of cubes with different letters printed on each side. Words are formed by letters that fall adjacent to each other. Boggle uses a plastic 4x4 tray containing 16 lettered cubes. In Boggle 3 and four letter words carry 1 point, five letter words carry 2 points, 6 letter words carry 3 points, 7 letter words carry 5 points and 8+ letter length carries 11 points.
The longest words that can be formed in Boggle are Inconsequentially, Quadricentennials and Sesquicentennials all 17 letters long and made possible by Q and U appearing on the same face of one cube. Boggle has one cube with Qu printed as the chances of a Q an U falling adjacent is very rare. Scrabble has separate tiles for letters Q and U.
