Thumbs at the ready. Retro gaming utopia 1989 Arcade Bar in Newtown is hosting the Classic Tetris Australian Championship on September 14 and 15.
The format is classic Nintendo Tetris. On Saturday there’ll be qualifying rounds, and the finals will be on Sunday when finalists will compete in best-out-of-three games until only one player remains. Those not participating can sip craft beer and cocktails while all the madness unfolds.
It’s free to watch, and $20 to compete. Register here – it’s open to all ages.
From 9am to 4.30pm Saturday, and from 10am Sunday.
