Another roll and write Tetris style game by Uwe Rosenberg, this time in which there is a deck of cards with tetromino puzzle pieces. Two cards from this deck are shown and dictate what players need to draw on each of their boards. The object is to fill up as many pieces of your personal grid as possible. If a player cannot fill in either of the 2 tetromino cards, they get a second chance by revealing another card of the puzzle piece deck for that individual person only. If they are unable to fit that piece on their grid, then they are eliminated. The game lasts until: 1) All players have been eliminated; 2) the deck has run out; or 3) a player has completely filled in the grid (aka, no empty spaces left) - in which case, that player wins. Otherwise, if winning conditions 1 or 2 occurred and no player has completely filled in his/her grid, then the player with the fewest blank spaces wins.

This game sounds interesting and very Tetris-like, but I am not sure whether it would be for Richard and Jen, for two reasons: 1) Sounds too light of a game for them. 2) I am not sure how they will feel about the player elimination element.
