Kick off this year's Philly Tech Week with a gigantic game of Tetris


There's a few reasons why Tetris is one of gaming's most enduring classics: it's easy to pick up, hard to master and can be played on just about any platform -- including the sides of a building. Drexel University students are rigging the city of brotherly love's Cira Centre with LEDs to play Tetris on a massive scale for the kick-off of this year's Philly Tech Week. The school did something similar in 2013 with a giant version of Pong (video below), but the difference is that this time two sides of the 29-story Cira Centre will be used instead of just one. This will cover more than 100,000 square feet of the building's façade and, according to the university, it should be visible from just about anywhere in Philadelphia. Should the installation go off without a hitch, Drexel will set another Guinness World Record for largest architectural video game display. If you want to show off your block-dropping skills on a massive scale come April 4th, there's a sign-up at the source.
