Tetris is a tile-matching puzzle video game originally designed by Soviet Russian game designer Alexey Pajitnov. The first playable version completed on June 6, 1984. So he derived its name from the Greek numerical prefix tetra and tennis, Pajitnov’s favorite sport.
While versions of Tetris were sold for a range of 1980s home computer platforms as well as arcades, it was the successful handheld version for the Game Boy, launched in 1989, that established the game as one of the most popular video games ever. Electronic Gaming Monthly’s 100th issue had Tetris in the first place as “Greatest Game of All Time”. In 2007, it came in second place in IGN’s “100 Greatest Video Games of All Time” (by 2019, it had moved down to 7th). In January 2010, it was announced that the games in the franchise had sold more than 170 million copies approximately 70 million physical copies.
Weird Facts About Tetris
Its name was tennis (partly)
“Tetris” named by its inventor, computer software designer and puzzle enthusiast Alexey Pajitnov, in 1984. He got the idea for the shapes of the playing pieces from a popular puzzle game called “pentonimos,”. But in Pajitnov’s computer game, the pieces were made of four squares. He combined the Latin word for the numerical prefix “four” “tetra” with the word “tennis,” since that was his favorite game.
Vadim Gerasimov, a programmer and graphic designer who worked with Pajitnov on early versions of Tetris, recalled that he was dubious when Pajitnov proposed it.
“I thought it sounded a bit strange in Russian,” Gerasimov wrote on his website, “But Pajitnov insisted on giving the game this name.”
Some game art included a political protest
On May 28, 1987, a 19-year-old German pilot named Mathias Rust flew a single-engine Cessna airplane 500 miles (805 kilometers) from Finland, illegally crossing the Soviet border and landing mid-day in Red Square.
What does this have to do with Tetris, you may ask?
According to Brown, the distribution companies for Tetris in America and the U.K. decided to include images of Rust’s plane in graphics of Russian scenes that they added to the game for visual interest.
It can change the shape of your brain
Playing Tetris thickens the brain’s cortex and can contribute to greater cognitive efficiency, according to a study published in Sept. 2009 in the journal BMC Research Notes.
A group of 26 teenage girls tasked with playing Tetris for 30 minutes each day over three months. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) of their brains taken before and after the three-month period. It showed a thickening in three brain regions, while there were no changes in the brains of girls who did not play.
It’s a work of art
In Nov. 2012, Tetris was one of 14 video games acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. The museum describes Tetris as an “abstract puzzle” that is “highly addictive” and “one of the most universal of all video games.
It was the first video game in space
In 1993, Aleksandr Serebrov brought his Nintendo Game Boy and Tetris cartridge aboard the Soyuz TM-17. That space-flown Game Boy and cartridge were sold at auction on May 5, 2011, one of the lots in a “Space History Sale” through Bonham’s Auction House.
According to the Bonham’s description, “This Game Boy spent 196 days in space and has orbited the Earth more than 3,000 times.” A handwritten note from Serebrov included in the auction lot states in Russian “Like all cosmonauts, I love the sport. My particular favorites are football and swimming. During flight, in rare minutes of leisure, I enjoyed playing Game Boy.”
It sold for $1,220 USD.
