Luke and I have long enjoyed playing word games together. [Boggle consists of 16 six-sided dice each side containing a letter of the alphabet. The goal is to construct as many words as possible in three minutes by stringing the individual letters together…we don’t count three letter words.] Recently, however, Luke has been keeping track of wins vs. losses by keeping a log written in ink that hangs on our refrigerator. This serves as a continual reminder to me of what exactly is the actual score.
Since Luke began keeping a public record I have gone 17 straight games without a win…but not two nights ago when I pulled off a stunning 56-54 upset! (We play the first one to 50 or more wins). What would be helpful for you all to understand here is that no one else will even play Luke in Boggle, such is his complete domination…I really am pleased to have finally won a game!
Here is a list of the actual scores for the past 18 games:
Luke won unless otherwise noted…
56-54 MIKE’S WIN
Just recently I found one of my favorite Boggle words of all time :The word was banality and was worth 11 points. It means “devoid of freshness or originality, hackneyed, trite”
Game: “An amusement or pastime”…Dictionary.com
Yeah sure…an amusement or pastime…and Genghis Khan was just another type A personality.
Savoring a rare victory,
