Updated Boggle

Posted in boggle, programming at 11:16 pm by danvk

I’ve updated my Boggle program to use the Enable2K Scrabble word list. It’s significantly better than the old linux spell-checking dictionary I’d been using. It contains more of the words with suffixes like -s, -ed, -er, -ing that are so crucial to a high-scoring Boggle board. The updated online Boggle solver remains here. And Hasbro– for requiring a form post to look up a word…

I’ve run several hundred thousand boggle gradients with this new word file and I’ve found a new top dog: plsteaiertnrsges, clocking in at 1,045 words and a whopping 3,625 points! I’ll blog about the process I used to get this in the next week or two.
