Quilts and blankets
Just finished the excellent Tetris article, i love how such a simple game has taken the world by storm over the course of the last three-and-a-half decades and is still evolving and finding new ways to hook us all over again, without straying too far from the humble origins of it’s original simple concept. it can be played on pretty much any system from the ZX81 to a Playstation 4.
one comment i would make is that people always call it a puzzle game, but there’s no puzzle, there’s nothing to solve, it’s a twitch arcade resource management game which perfectly encapsulates the ‘simple to play hard to master’ ethos that the very best games have.
as you can tell, i’m a huge fan, and i thought i’d share a picture of the blanket my very talented wife crocheted, it’s an absolute beast that took months of her life to make! her other creations, including some retro themed thingies can be found on instagram @magicsheepcreations.
anyway cheers for keeping the mag fresh for 183+ issues, it seems like no time at all since i picked up the first issue back in 2004 and thought it’d be an interesting one-off or short lived niche publication.
all the best, dave
glad you loved the article Dave and we’re massively impressed with your wife’s blanket. It looks absolutely lovely and we can imagine it’s the perfect thing to wrap up in while you’re reading the next issue.
Dave’s quilt looks absolutely marvellous. We’re quite jealous!
