Addictive :) Although it's a shame the letters aren't randomized. If you play 6 or so games in a row, you'll start to notice that it simply loads a series of preset letter formations one after the other.

So far, I got 12. I think it has presets because programming a combo generator that makes words and hides them is difficult. So they used presets so they can put all possible answers.

Yeah probably, although I'm sure there would be a way for someone to make a game of boggle randomly generate its board and then reference a dictionary. Like real boggle, sometimes you'd just get a crappy board, other times you'd get a great one.

In one of the presets, you're one letter off from making 'HELICOPTER' down the bottom two rows. Such a let down :( I thought I was really smart as I was spelling it out only to realize it won't work :P
