Boggle

I got 172 points in a Weboggle game today. That might be my personal best. The second best score was 110, and there were several very strong players. Hooray for me.

While I never much cared for Boggle (perhaps because I suck at it), that's a really nice interface. It almost makes boggle fun.

It seems that the program doesn't look for words on their own (which, for a small board, wouldn't be undoable); they just collect all of the user words. It would be interesting to know what fraction of all the possible words the players come up with.

No, look again. The program not only lists "words you missed last round," it also lists "words everybody missed last round." The number of words is not given though, you'd have to eyeball the length of the list.

In addition, the program tells you the total score of everyone's words, and also a perfect score (i.e., score of all possible words). So you can easily compute the fraction by points.
