high score
 thus far  1850   lines 74  level 5

My name is Lisa and I am a tetris addict---my husband took it off of my computer over 10 years ago and I haven't played since and when I saw it on here I thought, well I can play again and not let it own me.  Well, I must admit I'm powerless over it! ::smile::

Tetris is a scary game. It hypnotizes me.  Literally.  At this point, I'm tempted to type something that could cause me to be locked up.


Many years ago, I was playing Tetris on an old Nintendo system and had advanced to some upper level.  Time had stopped, and I was aware of nothing but the game.  And I started hearing voices.

Speaking French.

Now, I do not understand a word of French, but suddenly I was hearing this conversation and understood every word of it.

I still play Tetris some, but not nearly as much.

Can anyone tell me what is the proper way to use the red bomb?   They did not have that 10 years ago.

I use the "bomb" to eradicate lines and columns that I don't want (like when I stack up too many on one side or when I have a gaping hole at the bottom and want to be able to use the space to get rid of lines).

I too am an addict: level 10 and 120 lines

I understand k-pappy.  My husband doesn't know I'm playing it again and I almost feel guilty ::blushing::

Yeah, today is National Common Sense Day, and my kids and I are having a "National Backwards Day" in honor of common sense, you know, we're totally doing non-sensical things like eating pizza for breakfast, ice cream sundaes for lunch, and for dinner we're gonna' have eggs, biscuits and other breakfast nummies for dinner -- and NO VEGETABLES today, nada.  Oh, and we're all wearing our pajamas all day long.  Of course, I'm wasting a bunch of time playing Tetris while they enjoy watching T.V. all day (trust me, this a real treat for them -- we don't watch a lot of T.V).  It's been a totally backwards and completely fun day.  :o)

I don't know that I should be bragging about this.  Seriously, how much time am I wasting?!?!

I say brag away.  I'm very impressed.  I just made it to level 7 and can't imagine how you've made it to level 24.  Can you give a girl a hint?  One thing I'm finding out about me is how legalistic I am or perfectionistic in that I can't seem to let one line have a missing place.  Is that maybe what I am doing wrong?

Also, I can't figure out the proper use of the bomb.  Last time I played there was no bomb so it's throwing me off. Yes, that's it.  I blame it on the bomb! ::smile::

The secret is too many hours wasted!

Actually I don't have a secret.  Most of the time I do mess something up on level 7 or 8.  Sometimes I get as high as level 10 before I crash and burn.  I think getting to level 24 was a fluke thing -- all the pieces lined up just right, my brain was well rested, my fingers perfectly warmed up.... actually, by level 24 I was bored with the game and ready to go find something else to do.  lol

I try to fit the pieces precisely, leaving no gaps.  I aim for a completely filled in look, even if it means I've got several lines piled up a tall column on the left or in the middle needing one (or two or three) of those long gold/yellow pieces to fill it in.  I have a lot of "Mega Lines" this way -- I don't know, does that up one's score?

Always know what your next piece is gonna' be and know where you're gonna' put it.  Keep a running mental note of the piece(s) you need to fill in any gaps.

And I love those bombs.  I try to aim them for any gaps I do wind up with.  They go faster the higher you get in the game, so use them judiciously.

'Wanna come over and play Tetris with me sometime?  :o)

This game is an oldie and a goodie. Sometimes, I just have to come here and play some Tetris. Do I need to join a support group?
