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 !

Dominic Bevan Wyndham-Lewis FRSL (9 March 1891 – 21 November 1969) was a British writer best known for his humorous contributions to newspapers and for biographies. His family were originally from Wales, but he was born in Liverpool and brought up in Cardiff. He served in the Welch Regiment during World War I, and afterwards joined the Daily Express where he was briefly the newspaper's Literary Editor.
In 1919 he was put in charge of the paper's humorous 'By the Way' column and adopted the pen name Beachcomber. However he was not happy confining his contribution to humour, and gave up the column to the better-known J. B. Morton. Morton acknowledged Wyndham-Lewis' contribution by dedicating his first anthology of columns to him. Wyndham-Lewis lived in Paris from the mid 1920s while doing historical research (although he contributed a column called 'At the Sign of the Blue Moon' to the Daily Mail which his followers regard as his most outstanding body of humorous work).
In 1928 Wyndham-Lewis wrote a biography of François Villon, a roguish poet from the 15th century, which seemed designed to be an entertaining read. Later biographies of French Kings Louis XI and Charles V appeared tinged with Wyndham-Lewis' admitted Francophilia, although it was generally accepted that Wyndham-Lewis wrote with a verve rarely found in biographies of this sort of subject. However, perhaps his best-remembered work is as an editor, not as a writer: The Stuffed Owl which he co-edited with Charles Lee. This anthology of 'bad verse' is justly famous as being one of the funniest of all poetry collections, featuring William Wordsworth, Edgar Allan Poe and many others at considerably less than their best.
Wyndham-Lewis had converted to the Roman Catholic faith in 1921. Later in the 1930s after returning to Britain, Wyndham-Lewis turned to humorous anthologies, and in 1954 he collaborated with Ronald Searle on The Terror of St Trinian's (under the pen-name 'Timothy Shy'). Later work also included biographies of Boswell, Ronsard, Molière, Francisco Goya, and Miguel de Cervantes. He co-wrote, with Charles Bennett, the screenplay for the first version of Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934).
He also published as 'Mustard and Cress' in the Sunday Referee till 1935; after another stint at the Daily Mail, he wrote also for the Bystander and finally a decade-long column as Timothy Shy for the News Chronicle.
He was no relation to (though he was often enough confused with) his contemporary, the Canadian-born painter and author Wyndham Lewis.
