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 !

Montrouge (French pronunciation: [mɔ̃.ʁuʒ]) is a commune in the southern Parisian suburbs, located 4.4 km (2.7 mi) from the center of Paris, France. It is one of the most densely populated municipalities in Europe. After a long period of decline, the population has increased again in recent years.
There are a number of colorful traditions about the name "Montrouge", but it appears that it in fact comes from the Latin words monte (mountain) and rubeus (red), meaning Red Mountain, because of the reddish color of the earth in this area.
The name of the community was first mentioned in monastery documents in 1194.
Throughout the Middle Ages, the hamlet was home to monasteries and a number of religious orders, while in the 15th century it became the site of quarries used for the reconstruction of Paris. The late sixteenth century saw the plain of Montrouge named "reserve for royal hunts", and during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it was known for its windmills, which, sadly, have all now disappeared.
On 1 January 1860, the city of Paris was enlarged by annexing neighboring communes. On that occasion, most of the commune of Montrouge was annexed to Paris, forming what is now called Petit-Montrouge, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. The remainder of Montrouge was preserved as an independent town.
Industrial development started in 1925 and soon, many printing factories were to be found in the town. Most of these have disappeared today. Since the early years of the twenty-first century, professional services and telecommunications have been the main business activities.
Montrouge is served by the Châtillon – Montrouge station on Paris Métro Line 13. This station is located at the border between the commune of Montrouge and the commune of Châtillon, on the Châtillon side of the border.
The community is also served by Porte d'Orléans station on Paris Métro Line 4. This station, although administratively located on the territory of the 14th arrondissement of Paris, lies closer to the town center of Montrouge than does the Châtillon – Montrouge station, and is thus used by many people in Montrouge.
Metro Line 4 is being extended to the south. Three new stations (Mairie de Montrouge, Verdun Sud, and Bagneux) have been planned. The first one will open by mid 2012, while no date has been set for the later two.
Bus line 68 runs from Metro Châtillon Montrouge all the way up through Montparnasse, the Louvre, the Paris Opera and ends at the Place de Clichy, site of the Moulin Rouge.
As you can see from the list below, Montrouge was the home of a number of well-known twentieth century artists. Currently the town is also well known for two contemporary art exhibitions:
