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 !

Robert Francis George (born 16 December 1945) is an English darts player and presenter. He is widely recognised as one of the game's biggest personalities, known for his flamboyant entrances in which the "King of Darts" makes his way to the stage bedecked in jewellery, wearing a crown and cloak and holding a candelabra to the sound of Queen's "We Are the Champions".
George won several leading darts tournaments, appeared in two World Championship finals and was the first full time exhibition player. Since 1998, he has also worked for the BBC as a co-presenter and promoter of the sport during their coverage of various darts tournaments.
George only took up darts at the age of 30, but quickly improved, winning the first tournament he entered, and then making his first appearance at the World Masters less than a year later. He has won several tournaments around the world, including the prestigious News of the World Championship in 1979 and 1986, the Butlins Grand Masters in 1979 and 1980, and the Nations Cup in 1980, as part of an England triples team with Tony Brown and John Lowe. George's News of the World victory in 1979 came without dropping a single leg, the only player to do so.
George has reached the final of the World Professional Darts Championship twice. In his first final in 1980 he lost to Eric Bristow. Suffering with a broken back, George reached his second world final in 1994. In the semi-final he came from behind to beat Sweden's Magnus Caris 5-4 having trailed 4-1. Competing against doctor's advice he went on to lose the final against John Part 6-0.
Since 1998 George has been a co-presenter and pundit on the BBC darts coverage, primarily of the BDO World Championship. He has also made several other television appearances, not all relating to darts. In 2004 he starred in the British comedy film One Man and His Dog  and later he followed in the footsteps of fellow professional darts player Andy Fordham by taking part in the ITV programme Celebrity Fit Club. In 2006, he appeared in a regular segment of Brainiac: Science Abuse series 4, in which he played darts in order to explode caravans. He was also a team captain in Showbiz Darts again alongside Fordham. In 2010 Bobby performed Run DMC's 'walk this way' on Lets Dance for Sport Relief with Tony O'Shea, Willie Thorne, and Dennis Taylor.
His colourful character has enabled George to also be successful on the darts exhibition circuit. He became the games first full time exhibition player when he stopped playing regular tournaments in 1986. In 2009 he teamed up with Bristow and John Lowe to tour theatres around the UK and Ireland, appearing in a show named Legends of the Oche which was presented and hosted by comedian Duncan Norvelle. He also appeared in a 2009 episode of BBC's Cash in the Attic 
In 2005 George invested into a company which imports tinned apricots from the US, which happen to be the stars favorite tinned fruit.
According to local legend[who?] Bobby George purchased most of his jewellery from Manchester based darts semi-pro player Lee Garner. After the purchase Booby was pleased with his new Turkish gold and Lee Garner said it was a right 'snatch'
George lives with his wife and manager Marie and their sons Robert and Richard at George Hall, an 18-bedroom self-built mansion he jokingly refers to as "the house that Bobby built". The Hall is located on 12 acres (49,000 m2) of land once owned by William the Conqueror in Ardleigh near Colchester on the borders of Essex and Suffolk. The layout of the rooms have been designed to look like a dartboard. George is a keen fisherman, and within the George Hall grounds are well-stocked fishing lakes.
George has worked as an ambassador for basic arithmetic, touring schools teaching children how darts can help with counting skills.
