Check out the video to see our imagining of what 3-D Tetris might look like! You can also read more here.

    I played it a few times when it first came out. It was okay, but I never really got into it. My wife, on the other hand...........................

    Twenty years ago, on my children's Nintendo, I became addicted to Tetris, and that addiction I credit with allowing me to quit another very serious addiction, that was smoking cigarettes. I needed two hands to play. Sorry Marlboro!!

    I used to work at Edwards AFB. We thought at the time that Tetris was a Communist plot to keep us from doing meaningful work. Boy was it played on a lot of computers back then.

    Almost as much as Leisure Suit Larry.....

    And now you know why the government cracked down on computer usage.
