Seven minutes into building my tower of fail and my internet ADD forced me to retreat. (only halfway up)  :-)

I loved tetris madly. However, I'll be happy to never see that version again as long as I live.  :-)

I'm a Tetris junkie too.... bought and downloaded it onto my cellphone in case of times that require me to sit in a waiting room for a long period of time. :p  But THAT version....  :hammer:

I always found Tetris kind of boring but this is ridiculous, dare I say, rediculous even.

It was a 1024x768 Tetris board with tiny, tiny pieces.  It was insane.

I found an online knockoff of the original Tetris that I like to play at work: http://www.tetrisfriends.com/games/Marathon/game.php

If that game is too much for you, might I suggest a slightly different game.
