Tetris Championship coming to Toronto

Calling all 80s whiz kids and Gameboy nerds, Toronto is set to play host to a Tetris championship later this month. Think you've got the chops to out-stack all comers? This single round elimination tournament will test your mettle. No word if the Wizard will make an appearance, but Tetris was never his strong suit anyway.

This is actually the third Toronto Tetris Championship, but the first year in which the event will be open to the public. Formerly held in the organizer's apartment, the interest level demanded a new venue, which Kensington Market's Handlebar was happy to provide (they host regular retro video game nights). Registration is still limited, however, so if you're keen to show off your dexterity and problem solving skills, now's the time to sign up.

The 3rd Annual Tetris Championship takes place on February 12.
