In 1984, Alexey Pajitnov, working alone on his out of date hardware, changed video game history. Pajitnov turned a children’s block puzzle into the Tetris, the best selling video game of all time. Come to the Russian House at 3.30pm on Thursday November 2nd as we explore fascinating history and surprising relevance of Tetris. Enjoy traditional Russian tea and snacks as we dive into a tale that is equal parts history, spy thriller, and 90’s dance party. This is going to be a wild ride.
