Using, for example, one university's findings, of the commonality of each letter in the English alphabet being used. Wherein each letter is used X number of times greater than the letter they found to be used last of all, that letter, of course, Q. The total percentage of each letter having been used more often than Q are as follow:<br />E 57<br />A 43<br />R 39<br />I 38<br />O 37<br />T 35<br />N 34<br />S 29<br />L 28<br />C 23<br />U 19<br />D 17<br />P 16<br />M 15+<br />H 15<br />G 13<br />B 11<br />F 9+<br />Y 9<br />W 7<br />K 6<br />V 5<br />X 1+<br />Z 1+<br />J 1+<br />Q 1<br />If someone was creating their own game, like Boggle, for personal use and decided to use 17 die �� as opposed to the common 16, and there is a formula, using the letter frequency above, that shows which 6 letter combination would be optimal for placement on each one of the 17 giving the user highest probability for the greatest amount of words that could potentially be found, would you mind sharing the formula? <-sorry for the massive run-on sentence. I'd be much appreciative as algebra is my least strongest academic subject. Great article and research by the way. You put a lot of effort and dedication into your work and it shows. Thanks so much for sharing.<br />MeganAnonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02005073021935672900noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3697084771013804457.post-43730963142608548542020-12-04T20:55:04.485-05:002020-12-04T20:55:04.485-05:00*not a bot*

I ended up using it in the development on my Boggle game online - the task was to find a way to present shuffles of the letters that resulted in the most words, and your graphs above helped us to find a solution. <br /><br />We're writing up a blog post outlining the development of the game, and will be linking to this post. <br /><br />Thanks again. <br /><br />Matt <br />founder https://wordshake.com/boggle <br />Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08891171914091292066noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3697084771013804457.post-1229560303498189102019-07-24T12:09:14.782-04:002019-07-24T12:09:14.782-04:00Wow, this is awesome!

I am looking to find the highest scoring Boggle board that includes a 16-letter word, however I am having a hard time finding a source for the words since SOWPODS only goes up to 15-letter words.<br /><br />I was wondering about how to find every configuration of any 16-letter word on the classic 4x4 Boggle board in which the 16-letter word could be played legally. I could do this using 1, 2, 3, 4... etc. so that at the end I would just have to plug in letters and run it through an automatic Boggle solver. But my problem is finding those configurations. :/Janehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12668033975720054229noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3697084771013804457.post-59187268726728535692019-06-18T03:58:21.476-04:002019-06-18T03:58:21.476-04:00Could anyone come up with an efficient way to gene...Could anyone come up with an efficient way to generate a 5x5 (Big) Boggle board which contains specific words? I'm looking to prove that a board that contains the words for the numbers one through eighteen is impossible. I can get one through seventeen, one through eighteen except fifteen, one through eighteen except five, but not one through eighteen. <br /><br />Any takers?Minnow2https://www.blogger.com/profile/16969697203691071787noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3697084771013804457.post-38418800807688460092019-04-22T04:28:45.546-04:002019-04-22T04:28:45.546-04:00Youre so cool!
