Frequently Asked Questions ?

Q: How does the competition actually work?
A: The competition will take place on pre-designated machines where all participants will have one chance to play. Practice is available on non-competition machines.

Q: How is the winner determined?
A: The top 8 players in the normal competition will randomly play against each other in a special two-player version of Tetris, resulting in 4 players advancing. Those 4 players will randomly play against each other, resulting in the top two players. Yet a different version will be used for the final head-to-head competition.

Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 13. The competition proper begins at 10:00 a.m. Regular play will be available until 2:00 p.m. The finals begin shortly after. Last registrants need to be in the system by 1:30 p.m.

Registration for the competition is $5. You will receive a certificate confirming your participation after the competition.

Q: What can I win?
Top prize is $1000 and some great prizes to go with it, and second place gets $500. We are trying to ensure all top 8 players (at minimum) go home with something.

Q: Should I pre-register?
While not completely necessary, pre-registration will speed up the time required for you to get started the day of. We recommend it!

Q: What is the current world record?
There is no existing record for the 'Most Participants in a Tetris Tournament'. If all Guinness World Records policies and procedures are followed correctly, we will set a new record regardless of the number of participants that actually register.
