Re: In Soviet Russia...


I wanted to vote for this shirt, I really did (and still might), but I have an issue with your blocks. You've got 6 (?) colors to work with, which should be enough for at least most of the shapes, but your blocks of the same shape have different colors. First, I noticed the vertical pink line is one too long to be the 4x1, but conceivably it's more than one block partially deleted by completed line. But then I saw the same shapes repeated (2x2 square, left- and right-bend "L" blocks) that had different colors. Arguably, this is only a minor issue (and not easily/quickly recognizable, so the shirt is still wearable), but I'd suggest a resub fixing this issue, if there's time.

so to start, my wife disagrees with me, but i have to speak my two cents.

cent 1: when i saw this shirt i immediately LOL'ed (yes literally) and clicked i'd want one.

cent 2: i'm not a huge tetris fan and i don't live and breathe the color scheme of said tetris, but geez almighty it's a t-shirt!

thanks for listening,

I second this. Though I absolutely love love love the premise, these minor details really stand out to me [as I'm sure they would to any tetris nerd, and we probably account for at least 30% of the interwebs]. Resub mayhaps?

blocks are srsly wrong, but good idea, though.

Or it could just be that the wootnazi rejected the shirt that had all the blocks the right size and color, so the artist had to create something substandard to conform.

Maybe its an earlier for of (vintage!) Tetris that was only available in Russia and they hadn't nailed down the color scheme yet
