About this Episode

We round out puzzle month with the ultimate "puzzle" game, so elemental that you can't imagine it not existing. Alexy Pajitnov and a crew of colleagues in the USSR birthed the game, and it followed a long and complicated trail to becoming a worldwide phenomenon.

This episode relates that story, talks about how Tetris has changed over the years, and looks at some recent excellent Tetris games.
