This has replaced 2048 as our family high-score feud game of choice.

Sent a link to my 17 year. Should be a matter of days before this sweeps the nation (or at least this little corner of it).

Woops, just read the "via mefi projects" part. Still, yay! Fun and engaging reboot of tetris

Good idea for a game, but bad idea for a name. Hextris was already the name of a different computer game nearly 25 years old. The original Hextris, essentially Tetris on a hexagonal grid, can still be found online (at hextris.com, no less); a little Googling would have found it.

I wonder if the James Webb Space Telescope is just for NASA and their counterparts playing multiboard Hextris IN SPAAAACE, and looking at stuff from right after the Big Bang is, well, it can do that too.
