Do You Remember… Tetris?

Tetris merchandise & productsRemember Tetris? This puzzle game might be simple in concept, but it can be challenging… and sometimes frustrating. You’d build the perfect rectangle with nine cells across. You wait and wait for that long piece to come, and it never does. And then you die. Fun times. Fun times.

Did you know that Tetris was originally released in 1984? Makes you feel old, doesn’t it! Even though it’s nearly three decades old, the game is still popular to pass idle time, and there’s lots of merchandise to help celebrate Tetris fandom. Take a look at some Tetris products that I personally think are super cool.

If you experience a similar issue, then you’d be glad to know that DVDs with the latest season of your favorite shows are now on sale at Best Buy. All without commercials. Shop for recently released TV shows on sale with free shipping until March 9, 2013.
