Yup, as of today, June 6, in 1984 Tetris was released! Happy birthday to the famous Russian puzzle game!

I saw the title and knew who posted it without having to look...Is that a good sign or bad?:sd:
Anyway happy birthday to the game that helped launch on of the most successful systems of all time (GB) and "inspired" many other games like Dr. Mario that so many of us lost so much studying time to in college. I feel old in that I remember when the local Woolworths had the Game Boy display set up and a couple of us went there after school since it was a box type display with one unit displayed in each direction. Special note:trash-talking in a family style department store-that will get you chewed out by other customers. :sd: But still fun.
And the person who started this thread wasn't even born yet. ;)

It's been awhile since I've played Tetris, but it's definitely a classic. Ok, maybe not that long since I have the played the DS version.

I figured it was Tetris b-day today the moment I went to Google to search for something this morning. Still one the best ways to kill time (and worker productivity).

I saw that thing on Google as well. Although in my case the thought it was the birthday of Tetris didn't cross my mind. In any case, the image they're using clearly shows us a player that kind of needs to fix some gaps before thing get worse.
