Tetris Turns 29

Tetris Turns 29

On this day in 1984, Tetris, one of the most beloved brain games ever, was released.

Designed by Alexey Pajitnov while he was working for the Dorodnicyn Computing Center at the Academy of Science of the USSR in Moscow, Tetris would become the first video game ever exported from the USSR to the US.  Even now, 29 years later, it is considered by many game experts and fans to be the greatest game of all time.
