There are good games, there are great games, and then there is Tetris. I don’t know what the kids are playing these days with their fancy 4K graphics, but if they aren’t being schooled on the wonders of the iconic tile-matching game, then we have failed them.
Now three and a half decades old, Tetris is nearly old enough to be president of the United States. Throw it on a ballot today and those old enough to vote would strongly consider it, but how much do you actually know about the history of the game? Spoiler alert: it’s complicated and a little problematic.
