Tetris is a surprisingly addictive and compelling game, and it can leave attention-after-images (i.e., everywhere you look you see spaces and things that would/should be fitted just so into them).

Like cats into boxes. I believe it.

I had played it as a child on our toaster Mac, but never as an arcade game and either way not for more than twenty years. It is the sort of thing that could become a horrifying time sink if it weren't in an arcade and requiring money to play. I am not tracking down a version for my computer for that very reason.

I look like a diligent grad student, hard at work despite child! But in fact I'm playing either tetris or "mac man," Mac computer's version of Pacman.

That's wonderful!
