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 !

Prose interpretation (also known as prose reading) is a non-memorized competition event in which competitors choose a published piece of work that is not poetry or drama and read their pieces in each round without stumbling or mispeaking.
The piece should be cut to no more than 10 minutes (with an additional 30 second grace period, the use of which incurs no penalty). Going over the time limit of 10 and a half minutes will deny a competitor from gaining first place. In each round of competition the competitors will read their pieces (along with a brief introduction that should be memorized and is also counted for time). They read their pieces in the order specified by the schematic, or they will draw for order. After each person is finished reading, the Judge puts notes on the ballots. After all competitors are finished reading, the Judge ranks the speakers and takes the ballots to the Tab Room. The competitor should be familiar enough with the piece so as to be able to read it without stumbling or misspeaking. However, the competitor must at the least give the impression of looking at the book (usually a small binder with a hard copy of the piece); if the competitor fails to do so, then they will usually not be ranked well.
Judges of this event should look for:
1. Smooth and well rehearsed impression.
2. Facial expression of the competitors.
3. Looking at the book.
4. Eye Contact.
5. Use of intonation, different voices for characters, and consistency of characters.
6. Gestures that enhance the performance.
7. Limited to (depending on state regulations) no lower body movements.
8. How well the competitor makes the piece come alive.
9. How well the piece suits the competitor.
10. Overall effect of the piece.
If the judge is so caught up in the piece that they forget to write comments or to properly check time, then this usually indicates a good performance.
This event is not an NFL qualifying event. Each state has separate rules as to whether it is a qualifying event.
