Welcome to our 46th Squad Challenge! This time we're playing the Nintendo release of Tetris for the NES. I was temped to go with Tetris for Game Boy, we might do that another time. Should Atari have found a way to bring Atari arcade Tetris home to the Atari 7800? Oh, what could have been! Tetris on the NES and Game Boy became some of the most iconic games of the 8-bit era. Let's see how far you can get. Enjoy!
NOTE: Sometime in December we will be playing our first SNES game in a Squad Challenge. Get ready!
