25 Years of Tetris? Addicted?

Don't forget to pause the playlist on bottom of page to hear video.

LOL I remember spending hours playing Tetris with my niece years ago! For such a simple concept, it sure was addicting!

Hahaha, David! I won't get you started! You're doing fine without it! ;)

I tried it a couple of times, but I found it infuriating!

So did I, MZ! At first! When I got the hang of it, I could not stop! I wonder if there's a Tetris Anonymous? :))

Oh, Tetris! I was addicted, but then when I got so good at it that I could play it effortlessly for ages, it got boring. Same with Asteroids - anyone remember the Atari game Asteroids?

Apparently Tetris was invented by a Russian before the break up of the old Soviet Union. I bet he didn't make any money out of it at all. Doesn't seem fair, does it?

That's how I stopped, Jay! The novelty wore off! Did you watch the video? It mentioned that for 10 years under Soviet Law, he didn't receive a penny! But has done well since, and it's global!
