SEATTLE, WA and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2012) - Game players now have the chance to play their favorite classic word search game online and turn their skills into dollar bills! GSN Digital, the interactive division of GSN (Game Show Network), today announced the launch of the official BOGGLE™ skill-based cash game, SCRABBLE BOGGLE, at the Casual Connect conference in Seattle. Now available for play on GSN.com/cash, SCRABBLE BOGGLE is a digital adaptation of Hasbro's classic and famous word search game, with SCRABBLE scoring bonuses thrown in.
GSN Digital's skill-based cash competition version of SCRABBLE BOGGLE offers the engaging and captivating task of creating words out of a jumble of letters and combines the familiar look of the traditional BOGGLE game that players know and love. Players will enjoy the challenge as they try to outscore their opponents to rise to the top of the leaderboard and win cash and prizes.
The cash game offers two different styles of competition: tournament and player-to-player. Each SCRABBLE BOGGLE game consists of up to three timed rounds in which players take on a 4 x 4 board to come up with two to 16 letter word creations. The first round consists of a level of normal lettered dice available for spelling words. The second and third levels add in SCRABBLE-type bonus dice, including Double Letter and Triple Word. The new styles of play in the cash game embrace the competitive nature of skill-based games and allow for high-scoring opportunities with the new SCRABBLE letters.
"BOGGLE is one of America's favorite classic games, and we're excited to translate this family pastime into an online experience where players can win real cash," said Peter Blacklow, executive vice president, GSN Digital. "SCRABBLE BOGGLE on GSN.com will likely appeal to a new wave of skill game fans playing BOGGLE for the first time, as well as long-time BOGGLE lovers looking for a new way to enjoy their favorite game."
