Tetris® Party Tournament Will Test the Skills of Tetris Party Players in a Variety of Tetris Modes, Including Marathon, Field Climber and Stage Racer

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) -

WHAT:       First Ever Tetris® Party Tournament for WiiWare™. Players
            can compete to win Wii Points™.

HOW:        Four unique tournaments will be hosted, each made up of one
            to four rounds. Each round is a variant of Tetris Party
            that will run bimonthly. At the end of each round, each
            player will receive a rank and confirmation code from
            the game.

            The first tournament will feature four rounds -- Marathon,
            Field Climber, Shadow and Stage Racer.

            To register, players should visit
   This is also where they will
            input their confirmation code. The confirmation code must
            be entered on the site once for each round the player
            participates in. Each player's rank will determine the amount
            of tournament points they receive for that round.

            Here's how the tournament scoring works: If a player ranks
            No. 1 in a round, he or she will receive 1,000 points, the
            No. 2 ranked player will receive 999 points, and the player
            who ranks No. 1,000 will receive 1 point. At the end of the
            fourth round, Tetris Online will total up all rounds played for
            each player and rank the top players on a score leaderboard

            The top 500 eligible entrants on the leaderboard will receive
            a Wii Points from Tetris Online.
