So have some fun!

If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.

I scored 161,464 points. Almost made level 10 of 15. I can still hit 17+ on the old 8-bit Nintendo Entertainemtn System (NES). The NES game had the two modes, and I can still beat level 9, high 5.

Ahhh, after posting my embarrassing minesweeper addiction on another thread I see this thread and now confess to my old Tetris habit when I had a Nintendo Gameboy.

My record score was 630000ish (I used to have my best scores written down but lost the piece of paper).

I was so hooked on the pc version of this game in the 90s. I was the best in our office, my lowest score was so high that my colleagues couldn't even get on the top 20 scoreboard.

I remember one of my favorite games growing up was "Tetris Classic" an old PC version of tetris with these beautiful backgrounds depicting the legend of Ruslan and Ludmilla. Now that I do some google-fu on it, apparently it was the second version of Tetris put out by the original coder - Alexei Pajitnov. Never knew that till now.
