This week's Friday Games will be a history of Tetris! We will play many versions of the world famous game, charting its tangled history from its inception at the Soviet Academy of Science in 1984, through its contested 80s variants, to its polished Nintendo incarnations, concluding with its endless fan-made, parody, and/or art piece proliferations that can be found all over the Internet today.
Be in the GAMBIT lounge at 4pm. We will actually be starting with a short documentary about the copyright war over Tetris before jumping right into the games.
There will be cookies (but they will be round, sorry).
