Karjaa (pronounced [ˈkɑrjɑː]; Swedish: Karis, Swedish pronunciation: [kɑːrɪs]) is a former Finnish town and Finnish municipality in Finland. On January 1, 2009, it was consolidated with Ekenäs and Pohja that formed the new town of Raseborg.

It is located in the Finnish province of Southern Finland and is part of Uusimaa, one of the regions of Finland. The town had a population of 9,155 (as of 31 December 2008)[2] and covered a land area of 196.82 square kilometres (75.99 sq mi).[1] The population density was 46.51 inhabitants per square kilometre (120.5 /sq mi).

The municipality was bilingual, with a majority (59%) being Swedish language speakers and a minority (38%) being Finnish language speakers.

Karis railway station is on both the Rantarata line, connecting Helsinki Central railway station and Turku Central railway station; and on the Hanko–Hyvinkää railway where it is the junction station for branch line services to Hanko railway station. Stage magician Simo Aalto came from the town.

Lettris

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

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 !
