Low-Tech Tetris

We don’t need no stinking video game consoles to get our Tetris on around here. No-siree, we like to play it using real 3-dimensional blocks instead.

Tetris Tower 3D by Radica

Tetris Tower 3D is the classic puzzle-piece video game brought to life. Little lights indicate which block you’re supposed to drop in next. You drop the appropriate colored plastic block through the chute, then flick switches on the side of the game to push the piece into the appropriate place. The two-sided tower lets two players duke it out against each other at the same time.

Made a couple of years back by Radica Games, the Tetris Tower 3D has become something of a collectible these days, since it looks like it been discontinued (shocking!) But just a few minutes of digging around a little over on eBay should net you one of these for under 20 bucks.
