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 !

HGTV (which stands for Home & Garden Television) is a Canadian English language Category A specialty channel owned and operated by Shaw Media and Scripps Networks Interactive. HGTV broadcasts programs regarding real estate and home and garden design and renovations.
HGTV broadcasts both original Canadian content productions and licensed content from other broadcasters. The majority of licensed content is sourced from its American counterpart, HGTV; however, other programming sources include DIY Network and the BBC.
In September 1996, Your Channel Television Inc., a company majority owned by Atlantis Communications with minority partner E. W. Scripps Company, was granted a television broadcasting licence by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) for a channel called HGTV-TV Canada, described at the time as broadcasting "programming that presents practical, hands-on advice and instruction about homes and gardens. The programming will revolve around five key themes: building and remodelling, decorating and interior design, gardening and landscaping, crafts and hobbies and special interests."
The channel was launched as HGTV on October 17, 1997.
In June 1998, Atlantis Communications announced that it planned to merge with Alliance Communications, another fellow television and film producer and broadcaster, owners of History Television and Showcase at the time, to form a new company called Alliance Atlantis Communications. The CRTC approved the merger in May 1999.
On January 18, 2008, a joint venture between Canwest and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners known as CW Media, acquired control of HGTV through its purchase of Alliance Atlantis' broadcasting assets, which were placed in a trust in August 2007.
On July 23, 2012, HGTV altered its logo to match its American counterpart.
Past or present series which were produced partly or wholly by HGTV Canada are listed here; a more complete list, including imported programming, is available at List of programs broadcast by HGTV Canada.
