This is the dice configuration for the English Boggle:

English 16 dice version

Other variants and discussions concerning letter distributions for English can be found here:

I am interested in the 16 dice configurations for also other languages (Spanish in particular) and I am unable to find it anywhere online.


Versions I have managed to find so far:

This French page gives the following configuration for a 16 die Boggle version:

ETUKNO EVGTIN DECAMP IELRUW
EHIFSE RECALS ENTDOS OFXRIA
NAVEDZ EIOATA GLENYU BMAQJO
TLIBRA SPULTE AIMSOR ENHRIS

According to this French wikipedia article it is the configuration for the 'international' edition of Boggle.

I assume it is also the configuration for the Portugese 16-die version, since it is used for a Portugese Excel version of Boggle (see here).

The (one of?) the German version(s) you can find on my blog at http://blogabissl.blogspot.com/2016/08/boggle.html, standard 4 times 4 = 16 dice, including the way I turned the dice.

I finally got my hands on a Spanish version of a 4x4 (16 dice) Boggle, specifically the "enclosed electronic-timer" version (sometimes referred to as "Scrabble Boggle" or "Boggle Reinvention")

The dice configuration is:

ARHSDE FUAARB IOTALG UOEEOCh*
FOMTUI OODBLG RPSZTL EBIOUA
CAREME RSJEFI NSXJAH UVDQBCh*
NBIMEE BAANIT EPVOCU SCAAPT

*In Spanish Boggle, Ch is printed together but counts as two separate letters when scoring.

Another 16-die Spanish version from Argentinean manufacturer Kipo's:

['N', 'D', 'S', 'E', 'A', 'O'], ['A', 'O', 'U', 'E', 'A', 'I'],
['N', 'I', 'T', 'A', 'G', 'U'], ['V', 'O', 'N', 'J', 'S', 'L'],
['E', 'S', 'O', 'Ñ', 'A', 'D'], ['E', 'Qu', 'O', 'S', 'H', 'D'],
['C', 'E', 'N', 'O', 'L', 'S'], ['D', 'T', 'A', 'R', 'O', 'I'],
['C', 'N', 'I', 'R', 'T', 'F'], ['P', 'S', 'C', 'E', 'L', 'O'],
['E', 'H', 'I', 'X', 'U', 'R'], ['B', 'O', 'M', 'L', 'E', 'Z'],
['A', 'R', 'E', 'C', 'M', 'A'], ['S', 'A', 'C', 'E', 'N', 'O'],
['P', 'O', 'D', 'E', 'T', 'A'], ['B', 'R', 'A', 'E', 'L', 'A']

(my apologies if the brackets and commas are uncomfortable, I'm taking this from my JavaScript project)

We've been playing Super Boggle (by Parker) many times every day for the last 20 years. The letters on the cubes have started to become illegible. You can no longer buy Super Boggle (5x5 with flashing 3-minute timer), as I think it was lost when Hasbro took over from Parker.

It's the best version of the game, so I just needed to replace the letter cubes.

I suspect that other "English" versions on this site are actually "American English". We have been playing "British English" and so the letter distribution in the cubes is different. See letter distribution list below.

SOLUTION: I found that by buying 2 of the Hasbro 4x4 versions of British Boggle (Hasbro C2187 Boggle Classic from Amazon), all 16 of the cubes from the 1st set were the same as my original 25 cubes, and then I could use 9 of the cubes from the 2nd set to complete the duplicates which were in the original. Ths is shown below.

I'm happy again. We have a full 5x5 Super Boggle set again. Modern Big Boggle is not the same.
