    Hey guys, I just found how to play Tetris in the Terminal but I don't know of any of the commands to start the game. Can anyone help me please?

    Hey thanks - yes I did mean the hidden Tetris game.

    It's weird, because I don't see the blocks on my screen when I do play!

    Did you happen to change your $Term to VT100? change it back and it should work fine.

    OK got it, thanks!

    One more thing I'm afraid. How do I clear the screen? After I've finished a game the scores come up and when I restart a game they block off half the screen......
