The Pittsburgh Tri-State area is a US region that is centered around the transportation, medical, academic, economic, media and federal resources based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This definition has also been adopted by many corporate regional offices in eastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania, and northern portions of West Virginia. Although out of the logical "Tri-State" a few western counties of Maryland and the extreme southwestern corner of New York state are usually included; the extreme northeastern part of Kentucky is also occasionally included.

The area is an extension of the Pittsburgh DMA and the Pittsburgh Metro Area ,both officially designated areas covering western Pennsylvania, western Maryland and northern West Virginia. Although comprising areas that are mostly autonomous in their own right such as Clarksburg-Weston, Youngstown-Sharon, Steubenville-Wheeling-Weirton, and Erie-Meadville, the Pittsburgh Tri-State is united in the fact that many cable systems carry Pittsburgh-based media, Pittsburgh professional sports teams have affiliate radio stations and substantial fanbases, the areas use the Pittsburgh International Airport as their major gateway to the world, and Pittsburgh hospitals such as Allegheny General and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for major surgery or trauma. Pittsburgh television affiliates and FSN Pittsburgh (with rights to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Pirates, and many Pittsburgh Steelers shows) reach much of this area.

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 !
