Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !

A bedroom farce or sex farce is a type of light comedy, centered on the sexual pairings and recombinations of characters as they move through improbable plots and slamming doors. The bedroom farce is perhaps the most common form of farce.
The most famous bedroom farceur is probably Georges Feydeau, whose collections of coincidences, slamming doors[clarification needed], and ridiculous dialogue delighted Paris in the 1890s and are now considered forerunners to the Theatre of the Absurd. The Viennese playwright Arthur Schnitzler took bedroom farce to its highest dramatic level in his La Ronde, which in ten bedroom scenes connects the highest and lowest of Vienna.
In modern times, Woody Allen's A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982) and the television series Fawlty Towers both present aspects of the bedroom farce. Michael Frayn's 1977 play Donkeys' Years is a classic bedroom farce; Frayn parodied the genre in his 1982 play Noises Off via its play-within-the-play, "Nothing On." Alan Ayckbourn's play, entitled Bedroom Farce, looks at the lives of three couples seen in their own bedrooms, the stage being split into three sets for this purpose. There is much humour in the play, although few if any of the usual conventions of farce are observed.
Boeing Boeing is a classic French farce for the stage by Marc Camoletti. Monopolizing on most of the conventions of farce's canon, it concerns a Parisian playboy bachelor with three international stewardess fiancées he secretly keeps in careful rotation until their flight schedules change and he, along with his provincial friend and sassy maid, must keep them from finding out about each other. Lucky they have enough doors in the apartment to keep the girls unwittingly flitting about for two hours.
American three-camera situation comedy, an extension of proscenium stage tradition, often include elements of farce, specifically in several episodes of Three's Company, the "Woody's Wedding" episode of Cheers and "The Ski Lodge" episode of Frasier.
Brian Rix performed many bedroom farces from the Garrick theatre in London. Many were broadcast by the BBC.
