Classic video game Tetris is turning 30 this year, and to celebrate fans are asked to plan and register an event in their neighbourhood for a chance to win prizes for the largest scale meetup.
Tetris fans are asked to sign up to the official Tetris page at Meetup.com by May 28, where 10 of the largest scheduled meetups will receive a themed celebration kit. These kits include exclusive Tetris 30th anniversary t-shirts, an autographed copy of Jenga Tetris signed by the creator of Tetris, Alexey Pajitnov, and other Tetris branded items. Additionally, three meetups will receive fan prize packages worth up to $500, for those in the U.S.
Tetris was designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov, who released the game throughout the USSR in 1984. The game launched on the Elektronika 60, a terminal computer developed in the Soviet Union, before eventually coming to IBM PC systems, arcades, Game Boy and nearly every other games platform since. The title has since sold over 170 million copies, both digital and physical.
