What ended up happening was as follows. I first pre-arranged the letters well ahead of time by myself. Luckily, the other person needed to go into another room for some reason. I used this opportunity to suggest that we play Boggle, which was agreed to. I then quickly got the game ready. When the other person returned, I claimed that I had already shaken it ...

I believe you'll find that the answer doesn't matter for your specific case: If we assume every die is a fair die (which means every face has exactly 1/6 chance of coming face up, and is what you should strive for when building the cubes for your version of the game), the position of the letters in each die will not matter, since every face will have the ...

I can find nothing in the official rules, nor in the Wikipedia article, that disallows using the same letter on different cubes. In fact, the Wikipedia article names some of the longest possible Boggle words and they include multiples of the same letter which would be impossible if that were the case. It is definitely true that you cannot use the same cube ...

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 ...

Copyright only covers specific implementations, i.e. the exact wording of the rules. Patents are a nonissue in this case, Boggle was released in 1972 so any patent applying to it would have expired years ago.
