In 1984, the Tetris game was born from the imagination of computer programmer Alexey Pajitnov. Inspired by his favorite puzzle board game, Pentominos, Pajitnov created an electronic game that let players arrange puzzle pieces in real time as they fell from the top of the Matrix. The resulting design was a game that used seven distinctive geometric playing pieces called Tetriminos, each made up of four squares. Pajitnov called this game “Tetris,” a combination of “tetra” (the Greek word meaning “four”) and “tennis” (his favorite sport).
The Tetris Lenticular Playing Cards is an officially licensed Tetris product.
