Boggle Logic Puzzles: Minimal Solutions
Needleman, Jonathan
College Mathematics Journal, v44 n4 p293-299 Sep 2013
Boggle logic puzzles are based on the popular word game Boggle played backwards. Given a list of words, the problem is to recreate the board. We explore these puzzles on a 3 x 3 board and find the minimum number of three-letter words needed to create a puzzle with a unique solution. We conclude with a series of open questions.
