Tetris getting released as a board game, for some reason

Here’s an early contender for the 2011 edition of the Someone Made A Damn Boat Accessory For Your Xbox Award for Pointlessness. ‘Tetris Link’ is Tetris, but as a board game. wut?

Designed by a UK company specializing in board games, the idea of Tetris Link is to score points by linking three or more tetrads together to score points, while opponents players try to stop that happening. So, um, it’s Connect 3, basically. Great.
