Cynthiana is a city in Harrison County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 6,402 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Harrison County, and is located roughly halfway between Cincinnati and Lexington.
Cynthiana was named after Cynthia and Anna Harrison, daughters of Robert Harrison, who had donated land known as the Public Square, though Harrison County was named after Colonel Benjamin Harrison (not the U.S. President) who was an early settler to the area and the sheriff of Bourbon County, Kentucky.
Two battles in the American Civil War were fought in Cynthiana; the first on July 17, 1862, was part of a raid into Kentucky by Confederate General John Hunt Morgan; the second on June 11 and 12, 1864, resulted in defeat of Confederate forces on Morgan's last raid into the state.
In March 1997, the Licking River, which bisects Cynthiana, flooded, causing extensive damage in Cynthiana and neighboring communities.

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 !
