In this playful episode of the Popzara Podcast our own puzzle-loving editors Josh Boykin and Nathan Evans talk with cartoonist Box Brown about his latest project documenting the history of the world’s most popular videogame, Tetris: The Games People Play, available October 11th from First Second Books.

From mankind’s inner need to “play” and how a group of curious Russian computer engineers helped thaw the Cold War, Box Brown and the guys talk the earliest iterations of Tetris, the lovable Alexey Pajitnov, and even appalling lack of dedicated journalism on the gaming industry. And like the legendary game it’s based on, it’s too irresistible to miss out on.
