Were you aware that it was World Tetris Day on 6th June or that the original Tetris game is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year? Something else to make me feel incredibly old right now! My nine-year-old son loves the rather addictive game as much as I do so we’ve been more than happy to spend time having fun with Tetris Dual and Tetris Speed recently.
Whether you’re already a fan of the Tetris concept or not, you’ll enjoy having fun with Tetris Dual and Tetris Speed. Tetris Dual is a two player game aimed at those aged six years and over. I can confirm that this fifty-something Mum enjoys it as much as their nine-year-old son. You will need 2 x AA batteries to operate this game and there is some assembly required, but this only takes a few seconds.
The game comes with a base unit featuring 2 LCD displays, the play grid matrix, light up tower block, 50 Tetriminos playing pieces in two colours and an instruction booklet.
There are two different games to play with Tetris Dual. In Speed, you have sixty seconds to complete each turn and you lose points if you don’t complete your move before the timer runs out. In Countdown, there is a running countdown and you can gain bonus points for completing the game before the timer runs out.
Your score is recorded as you play the game and Tetris Dual really does make you work on strategy and tactical moves as you try to fill a row with your own pieces and block your opponent. We’ve both enjoyed playing this game a lot over the last week and the Speed game is our favourite of the two-game options.
Tetris Speed is a card game aimed at those aged six years and over, and it can be played with two to eight players. The game comes with eighty-four playing cards and instructions. If you are playing with two-four players you only use the white-backed playing cards, for five to eight players you use the complete deck.
Tetris Speed is a free for all and the first player to play all their cards is the winner. You place one card face up in the centre of play and then divide the remaining cards between the players. The card placed in the middle tells you which Tetrimino shape needs to be played next. It’s fast and furious and great for working on observation skills. I can also see this being a really good game to take away on holiday. It’s been a big hit here already.
