Boggle from Daddy

Brandon got this gift from his Daddy whilst on their way back to Clementi. He is a lucky boy cos his Daddy will buy him anything he likes. Although his Daddy will scold him fiercely when he did something wrong, but Shunxing dotes him a lot. I seldom buy him present except special occasion etc. like his birthday and Christmas Day. I will also reward him when he scored well for his exams. I do not wish to see Brandon has the bad habit of asking for gifts as and when he likes.

Boggle is a word game designed by Allan Turoff and trademarked by Parker Brothers and Hasbro. The game begins by shaking a covered tray of sixteen cubic dice. Each die has a different letter printed on each of its sides. The dice settle into a four by four tray such that only the top letter of each cube is visible. After they have settled into the grid, a three minute timer is started and all players simultaneously begin the main phase of play.
Simple as it may sound, the players involved must be quick to form words of different lengths which entails different points.
Different versions of Boggle have varying distributions of letters. For example, a more modern version (with a blue box) in the UK has easier letters, such as only one "K", but an older version (with a yellow box, from 1986) has two "K"s and a generally more awkward letter distribution.

It is an interesting and challenging game which me and Brandon love to play!
