I made the huge, life changing mistake of downloading a Tetris-like game on my phone.
Remind me again how Tetris didn’t come with a warning label? How is it not classified as a highly addictive substance?
It’s been ages since I last played this one. In fact, it was at a gathering with my cousins more than 5 years ago. Four of us had been perusing the Target clearance end-caps and we found this Tetris game that plugged straight into the TV. The rest of the weekend, a whole crowd of us was clustered around the TV either playing, or volunteering suggestions to players (there was trash talking too, of course).
Now, years later, I lost most of an evening trying to beat a high score, swearing copiously as I got a rash of those screwy offset squares that I can never deal with–you know the one, take the top two squares of a 4-square box and shift it over….instant crap. The fact that I just digressed to describing the piece I hate ought to be a clue as too how far gone I’ve been playing this frakkin’ thing.
Another win for a useless (but entertaining) destroyer of time.
