It looked cool, but on closer inspection it looks as if the video is played back at higher speed. Still pretty damn fast! Posted Image

Cool, but definitely speeded up.

Talk about pressure!

Tetris is the only computer game I ever got into. Love it. Though my efficiency would fall off if I played it too many hours in one sitting.

Same here Jack, it's the only game I have played on an almost daily basis since I first got Windows, back in the early 90's.

Never could play even a 10th as fast as that guy though. Posted Image

I knew one guy who could play for 2+ hours at the highest level on 2 different machines with both hands. Guy was freakin' amazing, but I don't think as fast as this guy. He look clairvoyant.

I used to play a lot on my Gameboy and later Gameboy Color. I lasted into the mid-30 levels sometimes. At level 25 or 30 it stops getting any faster and you get used to the speed. But if you screw up a single block when it's going that fast, you're pretty much tost. On the Gameboy color version some folks have managed to play for multiple days in one game though (you can save in the middle of a game.) I was still pretty impressed with myself though...

There are some cool Tetris-type games at gamehouse.com ... I like Collapse and Nisqually. Both are addictive ... especially at work. Posted Image

Nisqually, as in Nisqually Valley out here in WA? Wonder why somebody'd name a videogame after a geographical region. Weird.

I've always enjoyed playing the Mac version of Tetris.

Dana, are you "WA" or "NJ"?

You answer & your stated location (exit 4...) are confusing me.
