Statetris is Tetris with European countries or American states as blocks.

When you get bored with that, send someone a cute Google Maps-ified message on the same site.

I hereby invoke CRTC Canadian-content laws that require a version that includes Quebec be made available within a month, otherwise the creators of this game will have to pay a stiff fine.

Oh, come on. I woulda totally destroyed at this, but they kept giving me all these fake made-up states west of the Mississippi. South Dakota? As if.

Dude, it's TTT.

The hit detection on the States one sucks. added 2 minutes to the overall time just trying to place Wisconsin..... still pretty cool. Definitely a good edutainment tool.

Crap, Greg Nog, you made me realize I should've used a Grandpa Simpson quote for the title.

10:45 for Europe on hard. Come one, someone had to have done better than me.

Yeah, I don't think Corsica is a country either.

Still, that was sort of fun.

and I had to drop Liechtenstein like 9 times before I found where it went.

Not bad, but a jigsaw puzzle version would be much better. I coulda swore I've seen one before... too lazy to search for it through.

No, really, I know where Nevada is. I know exactly where Nevada is. Stop screwing with me, man. Nevada goes ... right ... the ... GAH!!@#$%!%

It's like, how close do you need me to get it? And it can't touch the other states next to it, even when I'm trying to finagle it into its Nevada-hole?

Same goes for Wisconsin.

I do NOT live on another planet, I'm just not sure how you expect me to get the state in without touching other states. Surely you realize that states DO in fact touch other states?

4:15, Europe on hard. Take that, Maastrictian. (eponysterical?)

C.Batt - this what you're thinking of?

3:10.6, for Europe on hard.

C'mon, where is the usual posturing that these kind of posts generate?

Yeah, I don't think Corsica is a country either.

Hey now, Corsica was the first modern democratic republic. Basically Genoa lost the Corsican liberation struggle and, sore losers, sold their claim to the island to someone who could subjugate Pasquale Paoli's revolutionaries, ie. France.

Because of this travesty, the world got Napoleon (born to Corsican nobility the same year that French forces crushed Corsica's republicans).

brina, I sincerely hope this is the last time I ever come across a reference to finagling a Nevada-hole.

5:10 for Europe on hard.

Benelux next time, I guess.

Brilliant! I managed europe without too many problems....not going near the usa. To many quadratics.

This game sucks.

Once I got Minnesota in place, I couldn't place Wisconsin because of that little bit of Minnesota that sticks out.

Good concept, horrid, horrible execution.

No wonder those bluehats had so much trouble putting the Balkans back together.

Do you mean the game, or your performance? ;-)

For some reason, it rejected my placement of Oregon, leading me to a time of about 4:15 on the states. :(

Countries are also states...
