May 29, 2021: Which famous game’s name combines the Latin word for four and the inventor’s favorite sport (tennis)?

Answer: Tetris. “The name combined the Latin word “tetra” — the numerical prefix “four,” for the four squares of each puzzle piece — and “tennis,” Pajitnov’s favorite game” (LiveScience.com).

Enjoy this fun game three ways:

  • Play Tetris online
  • Make your own Tetris Magnets with a Tetris Magnets Take & Make Kit
  • Play Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 during Westbrook Public Library’s Video Game Night on July 8th from 7-9 pm along with many other video games! (The game itself will be available to be borrowed later in the summer.)

Congratulations to Chris W.D. for correctly answering last week’s Tech Trivia question!
