Oculus first announced that Boggle and other Hasbro board games would be coming to Oculus’ mobile VR platform back at F8, Facebook’s developer conference. Now the day has arrived, at least for Boggle, as users on Gear VR and Oculus Go can already play the mind-boggling word game for free in Oculus Rooms, the company’s social VR app on mobile.
Oculus Rooms lets you play Hasbro’s Boggle with up to three other players using Oculus Go or Gear VR headsets. The company says that Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit are also “coming soon.”

Oculus Rooms was entirely revamped in inauguration of Go, which not only hosts a place for VR chats, but also a communal app launcher so friends can jump into multiplayer games simultaneously.
Besides the addition of board games, Rooms also includes a screen where you can share photos, listen to music, a place to communally watch purchased and rented movies from the Oculus Store.
