some of those weren't really right. like the question of inspiration. it's NOT shoeboxes. Tetris (Russian: Тетрис) is a falling-blocks puzzle video game, released on a large spectrum of platforms. Alexey Pajitnov originally designed and programmed the game in 1984, while working for the Dorodnicyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science of the USSR in Moscow. Pajitnov has cited pentominoes as a source of inspiration for the game. He derived its name from the Greek numerical prefix "tetra-", as all of the pieces contain four segments, and tennis, Pajitnov's favorite sport.[1][2] meh.

Wah! The only question I missed was the origin ... I thought Moscow was so obvious it had to be a trick.

1989 is the year Nintendo came out with their version (as opposed to the computer games before it), so I got that wrong. Oops. And I'm cracking up the Jackie Chan was such a junkie!
