View Full Version : Euro tetris: stacking up the states

08-06-2007, 03:07 PM
Here's a game of tetris (http://www.mapmsg.com/games/statetris/europe/) where you have to stack all the states in Europe (Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan not included, though I'm not completely sure these are in Europe)

That was a blast! Don't tell Stormy, but I fucked up Luxembourg at first. :psst:

I want this game to be a super clever political metaphor for something, but I can't come up with one.


BTW, there's a states of the USA version, too.

"I don't think you've ever been to Europe" it told me. :glare:

I kept getting the same couple of splinter states wrong. Stupid politics.

And they say Americans suck at geography. :sadno:

Belgium kept bouncing off of Nordrhein Westfalen! I did OK on hard; I almost nailed Eastern Europe except for the fact that Albania looks a lot like Slovakia when rotated. We won't talk about that embarrassing Czech Republic/Switzerland mix-up.

Why no love for Montenegro?

Yeah, Montenegro is attached to Serbia, that was a bit confusing.

Bah, Luxembourg is an urban legend. Like lead poisoning and Sock Puppet.

Heh! I was totally rubbish at this. I enjoyed it hugely and played it at work, so I had a lot of "help" from co-workers.

We knew this one :iloveuk:

that's actually two countries

08-07-2007, 10:49 PM
Not the one that's being hugged! Those hearts disappear just over the border! Oh, and Wales is totally getting squashed by the hugger!

And, OMG! You either forgot Wales or Scotland in your "two Countries".

I can't help but be reminded of this (http://www.satirewire.com/news/jan02/australia.shtml).

Heh! That's brilliant, Uthgar. :foocl:

Gah! It asked me what planet I'm from...but I played in medium, and I had to keep leaving because the kids are taking showers.

Freaking Macedonia is stupid anyway.

I have one for that place--Cynocephalae! HAH!

Stormlight, you'll be proud of me--Luxembourg on the first try, baby!:slide:

This was fun!

I got the message "You probably travel a lot, don't you?"

Unfortunately, Iceland bounced off the first time because I had just finished placing Ukraine and by the time I moved it over to its place, Iceland was heading south of Iceland. And a bit of panicked manoeuvering of the Scandinavian states was unfortunate, but probably unavoidable given the premise of the game.

And for the record, I had no problem placing Luxembourg. :D

Oh sure, it always starts with the sucking up, but next thing he knows, Stormy'll be picking your Schlieffen Plan out of his ass. :hmph:

There's now a new version featuring the African continent.

MapMSG.com - Statetris-Africa (http://www.mapmsg.com/games/statetris/africa/)

And there's a version for cheese-eating surrender monkeys....

I'm sorry, I was briefly possessed by the spirit of Bill O'Reilly.

I mean there's a version which lists the provinces of France.
