My Tetris collection - 8 years of collecting the worlds most ported game

Simon caught collecting in the wild.

My collection started modestly, with the purchase of a used Tetris Axis from Game Stop in 2013. It would be the game I play during my lunch breaks. A year later I started to really get into the TGM series, and purchased the most expensive games in my collection, TGM1 and TGM2.

I was inspired by Heidi's collection, Rhod's collection and many others. I started collecting the cheapest Tetris carts I could find. While I had a small collection going, I didn't consider myself a collector yet.

The result of spending coffee money to buy a few Game Boy and console versions of Tetris.

During a trip to Japan in 2017, I acquired my first boxed versions of Tetris from used games stores. I had so much fun searching stores, and researching Japanese versions, I got hooked. I became a Tetris collector, and for the next few years dedicated a large chunk of time collecting, researching, and documenting various versions of Tetris.

About the collection

You might have heard that the game Tetris Attack is a rebrand of the game Panel de Pon. Other than having squares in a playfield, it plays nothing like Tetris, and in my opinion is not a Tetris game. Other games like this are Tetris Flash, Tetrisphere, and Tetris 2. These are games you wont see in my collection as they generally don't interest me.

All images in this page are photographs I took of my personal collection.

Nintendo home consoles

Nintendo Entertainment System

Tetris (Nintendo)

The classic everyone knows, sometimes even called "Original Tetris". While it is not the original or even the first commericial release, it has become a staple in the Tetris community following the CTWC events held annually.

Tetris (Tengen)

Sometimes also called the illegal version, this version was the subject of a lawsuit between Nintendo and Atari in 1988. It was released before the Nintendo version by a few months, and sold hundreds of thousands of copies before being ordered by the court to cease the sale of the game.

It is often said this version is superior, as it has a few extra modes and multiplayer, however the gameplay is generally less fluid, and with enough skill becomes easily played forever.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System

Tetris & Dr. Mario

The remake of the classic. This version eluded me for quite some time, as I refused to pay over $100 for it. I eventually found one for sale locally and was lucky enough to nab it for a good price.


Tetris (Tengen license)

February 21, 1989, Henk meets with Evgeni Belikov, and finds out that the license of Famicom Tetris is wrong. The license is changed soon after on all printed games.

Tetris 2 + Bombliss

Super Famicom

Super Tetris 2 + Bombliss (Gold cartridge)

Tetris Battle Gaiden

One of my favorites, it definitely needs a remake.

Super Tetris 2 + Bombliss: Limited Edition

Super Tetris 3

Super Tetris 3 Hori Multitap

A Tetris version of the Super Famicom multitap. It allowed you to play the Familiss game mode in Super Tetris 3 with 3 or 4 players.

Virtual Boy


Nintendo 64

The New Tetris

The game that introduced us to the hold mechanic. It was also subject of some contriversy after hackers found hidden messages in the game.

Tetris 64

A special mode in this game required a unique accessory, the bio sensor, and official N64 accessory. This was the only game to support it.

The Next Tetris

The Nuon version of The Next Tetris is probably one of the rarest Tetris games out there simply because it was not widely distributed. The failure of the Nuon, paired with the Toshiba Nuon player exclusivity, meant that the number of people who actually bought this version is very low.

Shown here is my replica version, which includes the disc.
