I saw Thor break the world record on a tengen machine last year at cowlitz. The "awesome" part about it was, the only reason Thor lost was because he got bored, started talking to a couple of us and gave up.
That is awesome...

One of my better runs on this game.  I haven't gotten the hang of Level 19 yet, so this is right around my max.  Good luck to everyone!

That's a nice score to shoot for Tom.

As of myself, I love Tetris, but this is one of the game that I always believed I'm too average at to have any kind of pride to defend against anyone. I'll give it a few shots for fun, but I'm pretty sure I'm not going to raise my play to a competing level among the experts.

I seriously hope Robin and Thor will actually chime in with scores

Hope I can get some more time to play, I know I have broken 600k a few times (was a while ago though). Don't know if I've still got it, maybe not!

Same. I definitely want to see some huge scores this week. It would be really cool if Robin and Thor play (or any other Tetris masters)!

I think Tetris is one of those games that you have to play a LOT of to play well. I could never keep my interest long enough to put in the time.

Hurrah for Mog's comeback!

Nice to see you around buddy, and as usual, with a killer score to show.

I like how you simply masked the MrMini on your username paper, haha!

According to the game I am a Tetris Master, but compared to you guys I am just an amateur.

But hey, a post is a post, a score is a score...and a participation point is a point...Right?

Same here. I only played Tetris a few times back in the 80s because I couldn't stay interested.


Good video, Robin! Looking forward to seeing more great scores and videos from everyone
