Tetris County, SDĀ -The unthinkable has happened to the town of Tetris; it has been completely wiped from the map. A group of teenage boys from the devastated town are ultimately to blame. The boys thought they were only pulling a harmless prank. They would wake up the next morning to find their town had completely evaporated.

The town of Tetris was perfectly arranged so the city blocks wouldn’t completely square, or form a perfect line. To those who did not live in Tetris, it would appear as if the town was missing cohesion or at the very least poorly planned. According to Tetris city engineers, the city was set up that way with a purpose.

Tetris was founded in 1992 adjacent to a US disposal site. The disposal site is of unused, defective, junk Tetris blocks. During the 1980’s the US government was wary of anything that came from the Soviets. To counter, the US military developed their Tetris blocks. A group of Military scientists tested the Tetris ability to recycle the block waste near the site by building simple structures. Finding the blocks were impenetrable they proposed a town be built to repurpose the Tetris blocks. The only catch was the town couldn’t complete a ‘Tetris’ in its design.

The town of Tetris sprang up quickly as to fulfill a need to house military members cheaply. Civilian families quickly funneled in to take advantage of the cheap cost of building materials and extra large city lots. By 2002, the town’s population leveled off around 5,000.

Town of Tetris gone

Now, they are all gone.

The teens from Tetris wanted to prank the city by placing extra large Tetris pieces in areas of the city that seemed to be unusually vacant. The Boys decided to have all the pieces fall into place at the same time at exactly 7:00 am to prank the entire city. The Boys from Tetris camped out on a hill overlooking the town the night before. From this hill, the boys could see the prank from a birds eye view. When they awoke, they were stunned to find nothing left.

The teens have not been charged by any authority as all laws and legal figures to enforce any laws they were under have vanished. The teens have expressed their deepest remorse as everyone, and everything they ever have known are now gone.
