Here is the culprit for the huge decline in global productivity for at least a few months, if not years :) No description should be necessary here-- let's just say that if you really don't know what Tetrismeans or never saw falling blocks in your dreams, you ain't seen nothing yet <EG> It's probably also the most cloned and imitated game in the world. Definitely NOT an underdog, but its designer Alexei Pajitnov definitely is, as he never became well-known. Check out his other games on this site!
